  • Support departmental leadership by taking on mission critical and ad-hoc assignments and projects.

  • Act with our members in mind. You’re personally motivated by our mission and by what we are building. You seek to understand problems and help people solve them, especially this one.
  • Operational orientation. Creating and improving programs is second nature for you. You have a track record for building repeatable, reliable, and efficient processes in healthcare strategy and operations, or related fields.
  • Effective communicator and coach. You are persuasive and articulate, but you always start by listening. You build rapport, trust, and great working relationships with colleagues both within and outside of your team.
  • Comfort with ambiguity. You have a proven track record of success within scaling businesses, fast-paced environments, and/or startups. You understand that rapid changes to the business, strategy, organization, and priorities is par for the course.
  • A passion for learning and mastering new technologies. We are a technology company focused on interacting with folks during the season where they need it most. You’re adept with tools like Zoom, Google Suite, Slack, electronic health records, and Excel (can perform complex functions).

You’re always solving problems, applying the right level of priority, and going the extra mile for others and are comfortable operating as a swiss army knife.
  • Cultivate innovation. You introduce new ways of looking at problems, and can successfully operationalize the solution.
  • Seek diverse perspectives. You are humble and proactively seek feedback from others. You’re always looking to learn, grow, and collaborate with others to achieve shared objectives.
