Would you like to work at a fast-growing SaaS company? Are you a leader interested in the health, benefits, and insurance industries? Do you get excited about navigating compliance in a highly regulated industry especially when focused on Product/Engineering, Legal, and Operations teams? Join our Compliance Team to build and support employer benefits products!

We are passionate about using innovative technology and excellent service to elevate the health and benefits experience of small business owners and their employees. Each team member is a true owner and makes a tremendous impact every day. You will use your health and insurance expertise along with project-management skills to streamline compliance and ensure that our agency and our products are built the right way. You shine in a fast-paced environment and thrive on the success of a job well done. You have demonstrated leadership capabilities and are able to train members of relevant teams. You are the type of person who will leave no stone left unturned when navigating complex regulations, legislation, and court decisions that affect the health and benefits world. When you say “I’ll take care of it” we know it’ll be done well.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Advise our tech insurance agency on how to meet state and federal regulatory requirements in managing health, life, disability, and other benefits for small businesses.
  • Review relationships with third parties like insurance companies. This means reviewing third parties regularly for continued adherence to our safety and security standards and to secure any information shared with them. Auditing these entities and managing audits that they request of us will be a regular requirement.
  • Research and support processes that are subject to PPACA, HIPAA, and other HHS, DOL, and state insurance requirements. You will have the opportunity to work with our security and engineering teams to ensure that our environments and products are built to meet HIPAA standards. You will also work with customer experience and sales teams to ensure that they are meeting state/federal requirements related to HIPAA and other state requirements.
  • Review commissions, rebates, and other regulatory requirements in relation to operations and sales processes in order to ensure that we are meeting state regulatory requirements.
  • Meet with operations and sales teams, develop relationships with them to better understand how they interact with our products and our customers’ data in order to identify vulnerabilities and potential improvements.
  • Work closely with other compliance and legal teams to ensure that we are coordinating efforts and raising potential risks early to mitigate and resolve those risks.
  • Constantly analyze, refine, and iterate on internal processes to make them simpler and more efficient.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in the health, insurance, and/or benefits world
  • Demonstrated experience working with state insurance requirements and HIPAA or other federal/state requirements related to health and insurance
  • Approach problems with a passion for reducing operational inefficiencies and pain points
  • Experience working collaboratively with cross-functional teams in a start-up environment
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Experience auditing technology platforms
  • JD or Compliance-related Certificate preferred

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Cerebral palsy

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
