The Benefits Onboarding Advocate team is passionate about using innovative technology and service to elevate the health benefits experience of small business owners, their employees, and their brokers/insurance carriers. Each team member takes ownership and makes a significant impact every day.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Provide exceptional customer service by interacting with customers and brokers/insurance carriers via email, phone, and Zoom.
  • Facilitate the onboarding, integration, and renewal process using Gusto’s internal systems and tools, by gathering and consolidating benefits information, building policies, integrating and managing enrollments, facilitating open enrollment, and ensuring that customers adhere to carrier compliance requirements.
  • Effectively manage your time across multiple customers and a variety of tasks to ensure productivity and meet deadlines consistently.
  • Collaborate across teams to collectively address issues, troubleshoot problems, and resolve customer concerns.
  • Be a knowledge partner! Research, document, and educate others on updates related to internal process, external policy, and best practices.

Here’s what we're looking for:

  • 2-4 years of customer-facing experience, bonus points for exposure to benefits or payroll experience
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Strong project management skills and attention to detail.
  • Flexibility to work collaboratively with cross-functional teams.
  • Skilled in problem solving and very comfortable dealing with ambiguity.
  • Self-motivated and comfortable working collaboratively and autonomously - excited about striving toward team and individual metrics.
  • Passion for reducing operational inefficiencies and pain points.

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $23.56/hr - $26.44/hr in Denver. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate location, experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Gusto has physical office spaces in Denver, San Francisco, and New York City.

The same office expectations apply to all Symmetry roles, Gusto's subsidiary, whose physical office is in Scottsdale.

Note: The San Francisco office expectations encompass both the San Francisco and San Jose metro areas.

When approved to work from a location other than a Gusto office, a secure, reliable, and consistent internet connection is required.
