Leading Healthtech Company GoHealth Completes Creatix Acquisition, Continues $15M+ Investment in Slovakia Over Next Several Years


BRATISLAVA, Slovak Republic (PRWEB)
April 04, 2019

U.S.-based enterprise software company GoHealth, a leading provider of health insurance technology solutions, has completed its acquisition of software development firm Creatix following a successful three-year partnership. To power its growing technology platform, GoHealth plans to invest more than $15 million to expand operations in the region and leverage Slovakia’s tech talent.

Slovakia is known as a rising star in the global tech workforce, with the country’s software developers ranking first among all European countries in one recent study. GoHealth, which has developed a fully integrated marketplace to connect consumers with affordable health insurance products from major U.S. insurers, has relied on Creatix to augment its engineering team to keep pace with market demand.

“Slovakia will be one key to GoHealth’s future growth as the company expands its global footprint,” CEO David Jelinek says. “Creatix has invested in Slovakia from day one, and we’ll continue to do so as part of the GoHealth family.”

As GoHealth expands its engineering capabilities further, the company plans to create jobs that provide incredible professional growth opportunities. Plans include expanding its office in Bratislava and opening a new office in Kosice, continuing the successful collaboration between GoHealth and Creatix over the past several years. With more than 85 team members across the U.S., Slovakia and Poland, Creatix specializes in building diverse, highly skilled teams that help brands accelerate innovation and realize business value faster. Creatix will begin operating under the GoHealth name, while continuing to support its independent base of clients throughout the transition.

For current and future team members, this acquisition is an exceptional opportunity to gain exposure to the most advanced enterprise technologies, tools and processes, while – working alongside some of the industry’s brightest minds.

“Our growth will continue to be rooted in investing in our team. We provide access to excellent benefits for our workers, including competitive compensation, high-visibility projects, mentorship from senior team leaders, flexible work schedules, a collaborative culture, and health and wellness amenities,” Jelinek says.

“As Creatix enters this new phase of growth with GoHealth, our talented team has the opportunity to work at a high level with enterprise platforms and operate them at scale,” says CTO Kamil Krauspe, who is based in Creatix’s Bratislava office. “We’re excited to support GoHealth’s innovative vision to deliver access to quality health insurance products, and to build an equally innovative company culture that inspires our team to do their best work.”
