Imagine building a better healthcare journey for cancer patients, where individuals and their loved ones feel seen, supported, and heard by their care team – both in and out of the clinic. Where fast access to high-quality care is the norm, not the exception. Where patients have access to a care navigator to guide them through their diagnosis and trusted support all along the way.

At Thyme Care, we share a passion for transforming the cancer care experience – not just for patients but also for their caregivers and loved ones, as well as those delivering and paying for their care. Today, Thyme Care is known predominantly as a cancer care navigation company enabling value-based cancer care; in the next few years, we will become a nationally recognized technology-driven and provider-centric care delivery model, reshaping the landscape of cancer care access, delivery, and experience. Our commitment runs deep—we're not satisfied with the status quo but determined to redefine it.

To make this happen, we’re building a diverse team of problem solvers and critical thinkers to drive innovation and shape the future of healthcare. If you share our vision and want to be part of something truly meaningful, we want to hear from you. Together, we can revolutionize cancer care and make a difference that lasts a lifetime.


As a Clinical Informaticist, you will join our Product team to oversee medical information management and develop clinical products and services to drive our value-based care initiatives. You will be responsible for developing and maintaining clinical content, terminologies, and datasets to support and inform Thyme Care’s risk-bearing contracts.

In this position, you will collaborate with our Engineering and Data Science, Clinical, Health Econ, Growth, and Operations teams to identify opportunities to improve our clinical and data products. You will be a go-to resource for identifying and evaluating potential content sources to enhance our end-user experience and defining and implementing the use of existing ontologies and vocabularies for Thyme Care products and services. In addition, you will lead external engagements with potential and current partners to align on program population criteria and develop appropriate policies and procedures to maintain these definitions across our various contracts.

  • Prior experience in clinical informatics and/or clinical content management

  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills. Your curious mindset and keen attention to detail allow you to tackle complex problems and deliver innovative solutions.

Excellent communication. You can break down complex clinical and data concepts with strong interpersonal skills that can flex to a variety of audiences


At Thyme Care, our core values guide us in everything we do: Act with our members in mind, Move with purpose, and Seek diverse perspectives. They anchor our business decisions, including how we grow, the products we make, and the paths we choose—or don’t choose.

We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of all individuals. As a provider of cancer care navigation, we recognize that those with cancer constitute a vulnerable population at risk of contracting COVID-19. As such, Thyme Care employees are expected to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, subject to conflicting laws and exemptions based on medical or religious objections.

Our salary ranges are based on paying competitively for our size and industry, and are one part of the total compensation package that also includes equity, benefits, and other opportunities at Thyme Care. Individual pay decisions are based on several factors, including qualifications, experience level, skillset, geography, and balancing internal equity relative to other Thyme Care employees. Per New York City law, the base salary range for this role, if filled within New York City, is $150,000 - $180,000. The salary range could be lower or higher than this if the role is hired in another location or at another level. We also believe that your personal needs and preferences should be considered so we allow some choice between equity and cash.

We recognize a history of inequality in healthcare. We’re here to challenge the status quo and create a culture of inclusion through the care we give and the company we build. We embrace and celebrate a diversity of perspectives in reflection of our members and the members we serve. We are an equal-opportunity employer.
