ABOUT US 

Our mission is to reimagine how companies take care of their people by making benefits easy. We believe people are the most important asset to any company. Traditional one-size-fits-all benefits packages no longer cut it in today's hybrid and remote-first environment. With Benepass, companies can personalize every employee’s benefit experience while also driving efficiencies in the overall benefits budget and vendor management.

Benepass offers the most configurable benefits card on the market, and employers can design and distribute multiple benefits programs, including pre-tax (FSA, HSA, Commuter) and employer-funded benefits such as wellness, remote work enablement, professional development, food / meals, family formation, and rewards & recognition. Our goal is to scale with clients over time, as they continue to adjust their benefits programming to meet diverse and dynamic employee needs.

Benepass is a technology company built on modern financial infrastructure, which we consider our key differentiator compared to industry incumbents and other new entrants. With a scalable technology backbone, we have the unique ability to build more benefits use cases on our platform, resulting in a simple, modern, consolidated employee and employer experience.

OUR MISSION

Helping companies reimagine benefits to make them delightful and easy.

OUR INVESTORS

We are backed by leading investors, including Portage Ventures, Threshold Ventures, Gradient Ventures, Workday Ventures, and Clocktower Technology Ventures. To date, the company has raised $35 million of equity capital.

TEAM & ROLE

As a Front End Engineer, you will be responsible for developing user experiences that our customers will love. Your day-to-day activities will be hands-on developing software and contributing to design—working closely with leads, designers, and product managers to experiment and deliver experiences to our customers all over the world.

We’ve built a massive amount over the past few years, such as:

  • Backend software that sits in the credit card authorization flow and makes an approve or decline decision in real time when a user swipes their card
  • Three awesome clients (an end-user web app, a mobile app, and an admin web app), plus push provisioning of our cards into Apple and Google Pay
  • A full-fledged general ledger system that tracks every movement of money in our ecosystem and continuously reconciles against external bank accounts
