About the Company

Budgie Health is here to make healthcare benefits less confusing. People shouldn’t need a PhD to understand their healthcare. At Budgie, we are reinventing how Americans interact with their healthcare benefits. We believe that by translating complex healthcare data into simple financial experiences, we can empower people to make better decisions while saving time, money and stress.

We are starting by modernizing how employees choose their health insurance plan because this is one of the biggest sources of frustration and Americans waste >$150B annually making the wrong choices.

We are a NYC-based startup (but support US based eastern/central remote work), backed by some of the world’s most accomplished investors (early backers of Venmo, Gusto, Bumble, and Dropbox). We are solving a really hard problem and are already seeing strong engagement and results with our current clients. We are a team of world-class technologists, designers, operators, and healthcare geeks, looking for new members to join the early team. We come from the healthcare and fintech world, having been part of the early teams at Oscar Health, Cedar, Yieldstreet, Healthcare BlueBook and PathAI.
