We’re thrilled to reveal that HealthJoy was awarded the title of 2019 Best Tech Startup at Tech in Motion’s annual Timmy Awards ceremony. HealthJoy beat out its Chicago competitors to clinch the “Community Favorite” award, securing its status as the top place for tech professionals to work in Chicago.
Tech in Motion’s Timmy Awards recognizes incredible tech workplaces in ten cities across North America. We’ve strived to create a truly special workplace, but it’s nice to be recognized— especially since the Timmy title places HealthJoy among the ranks of previous winners like Audible, Jet.com, Venmo, TripAdvisor, SAP, Salesforce, Casper and Asana.
“Through the Timmy Awards, we’re thrilled to recognize the startups cultivating innovation not just through their product or service, but in their everyday work environment and culture,” said Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Motion Recruitment, creator of Tech in Motion.
Striking that balance at HealthJoy was no mean feat in 2019, as we more than doubled our Chicago office with 50 new hires. We expect to welcome even more new teammates in 2020.
Our President and Co-founder, Doug Morse-Schindler, said maintaining an award-winning company culture amid such rapid expansion meant prioritizing our mission and values. Doug thanked the HealthJoy team and said he wasn’t surprised to see us winning big.
“HealthJoy’s company culture is outstanding because of our people. We share a set of common values and a deep sense of purpose,” Doug said. “I’m delighted to see the Chicago tech community recognize that with a Timmy Award.”
As a mission-driven, talented group, we’re motivated to take our product to the next level. We’re changing the employee benefits space by creating a centralized benefits platform that’s driven by AI technology and backed by live, personalized guidance. HealthJoy empowers employees to make the most of their benefits, meaning our clients see higher employee satisfaction, simplified cost containment, and fewer questions for HR.
That’s an incredibly motivating mission. Like most of you, we’re also motivated by a workplace stocked with on-tap nitro cold brew, company happy hours, High Five Fridays, and office dogs. Sound like fun? Good, because we’re hiring! Find out more on our careers page.
