Benecaid is looking for a passionate, well-rounded Graphic Designer to be a creative lead and take control of all things design, from product interfaces, to brand identities, to websites and collateral, to digital ad campaigns.
Benecaid provides innovative group benefits for small and mid-sized employers across Canada. We have long been recognized as the leading alternative to traditional insurance companies, in a market where smaller companies have been largely underserved. We set ourselves apart from the competition, by using technology, creative products and stellar customer experience to solve problems for employers.
Benecaid just changed the game with the launch of Honeybee (www.honeybeebenefits.com), a next generation benefits platform built for today’s modern workforce that empowers employers to compete better for talent. Developed by Benecaid’s Innovation Group, this division of Benecaid is tasked with leveraging technology, data and distribution channels to build better products and digital experiences that will drive growth and retention in a fast changing landscape. The Innovation Group is self-funded by Benecaid, a profitable, stable and highly entrepreneurial company that is quickly gaining momentum as a leader in the Canadian InsureTech space.
In April 2018, Benecaid was acquired by the APRIL Group, an international insurance services organization with operations in 31 countries. As part of APRIL, we now have a bigger audience and an even more exciting story to tell.
