People Operations Lead

Location: San Francisco, CA


Out-of-pocket healthcare costs are skyrocketing each year, forcing people across America to make difficult decisions about their health and money. We started Lively because we believe no one should have to sacrifice their personal health for their financial health. Lively makes it easier to manage rising costs through Health Savings Accounts (HSA) that allow people to not only save on the costs of healthcare today but plan for the costs of tomorrow.

Healthcare, FinTech, Start-Up, Dreamers. We check all those boxes. Complex thinking isn’t encouraged, it’s mandated. We use technology to integrate disjointed banking and payments infrastructure to optimize consumer healthcare spending, savings, and overall livelihood. We are passionate about what we are doing because we know our approach can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. Wake up and come to work every day with this in mind.

Located in San Francisco, Lively is backed by the top institutional and individual investors including Costanoa Ventures, Y Combinator, The Durant Company, SV Angel, Point Judith Capital, Streamlined Ventures, among others.
