Job Description


Join the fast-growing startup that is changing the conversation around pharmacy benefits.

Based in San Francisco, SmithRx was founded in 2016 to create a technology-driven and cost-competitive pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) that offers clients a flexible, customer-centric product. "Our focus is on building the next generation pharmacy benefits partner that enables choice, aligns incentives, and surfaces insights to improve care delivery," says SmithRx Founder & CEO Jake Frenz. "Innovation has lagged in the PBM sector, and our team is dedicated to accelerating change."

SmithRx administers and manages pharmacy benefits for B2B customers so they may provide a seamless experience for employees purchasing prescription drugs. Each year, nearly half a trillion dollars flow through pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), with three large companies controlling 75%+ market share.SmithRx offers a new path forward that aligns incentives and harnesses data analytics to deliver an exceptional pharmacy benefit product.

The company brings together experience at from healthcare companies including Anthem, Humana, Collective Health, Castlight Health, and CVS Caremark, as well as a broader set of technology leaders including LinkedIn, Upwork, Glassdoor, and Earnest, to solve what we believe is one of the largest-yet least-recognized-problems in the healthcare industry.
