Our health system is broken, and it’s a huge problem. Costs are rising out of control while the patient experience gets worse. At Sana, we're passionate about fixing this problem by bringing accessible and affordable health plans to small and medium businesses. We've built an innovative team with top talent from across the health insurance and tech industries to create engaging, modern plans for our clients. This allows our customers to offer competitive benefits packages while paying an average of 20% less than traditional plans.
We are seeking a People Operations Manager to oversee the compensation, benefits, people analytics, and compliance functions of our People Team. The ideal candidate brings a deep understanding of compensation and benefits programs, as well as a strong knowledge of HR compliance regulations and requirements. Reporting to the VP of People, you’ll have the opportunity to build programs and processes that scale while creating an exceptional work environment to enable our employees to perform at their best.
