In the next five years, Novartis Pharma expects up to 10 product launches, and if serving patients is your passion – this may be the place for you! The Managed Markets team is looking for focused, passionate, critical thinkers to shape how Novartis brings innovative therapies to the market and work towards patients having sustainable access to our medications.

The US pharmaceutical market is large, profitable and still growing. The US healthcare system continues to advance regulatory approaches that favor innovation, including accelerated reviews for break-through therapies. The pharmaceutical pricing and market access environment, however, is under in-creasing pressure which is causing reductions in access to medications for appropriate patients.

Novartis has operated at the forefront of the managed care industry and is taking further steps to address both the near-term managed care and healthcare systems issues as well as the longer-term sustainability of the US pricing and access model. As part of our efforts to remain at the forefront, Novartis is increasing sophistication and customization of market access strategies to address access stakeholders shared priorities around advanced data analytics, digital innovation, health inequities, population health management and other emerging related priorities.

The Squad Lead will be part of our bold efforts to reimagine access for Novartis and will engage with all levels of the organization, identifying areas of opportunity, and drive change.
