About the role

About us

We are a profitable and fast-growing healthcare startup – a small and mighty team of around 50, helping people to find, enroll in, and use ACA health coverage. We’ve doubled in each of the past three years and are now the largest ACA enrollment platform after, having helped over 5 million people enroll in health coverage. We're a mission-driven team that advocates for and cares deeply about the people we serve.

We are a double bottom-line company: revenues and enrollments in ACA coverage. The ACA brings high quality, comprehensive, and affordable health coverage within reach for low-income Americans. And we exist to make that promise a reality. Your contribution will positively impact millions of people, helping them to navigate the complex and confusing health insurance industry and to access health care when they need it. 

About the Role

HealthSherpa works with over two dozen large insurance companies that rely on HealthSherpa for core parts of their enrollment and member servicing infrastructure. The Director of Account Management is a remote position who will lead a team of 3-5 account managers serving those clients and helping them 1) understand and use what we've built for them, 2) resolve problems as they occur, and 3) increase the scope of their engagement with us.

You will report to the VP of Sales and Distribution. This is a remote-friendly role.
