As a Product Manager, you'll lead a cross functional product squad through the entire product development lifecycle (from discovery to delivery) and build an environment conducive to forming a high performing team. Your charter is to change healthcare by creating a more navigable and "next best action" type of experience where consumers/members are able to find the information and tools they need within only a few clicks as well as present relevant health related recommendations personalized to them and their family members; improving affordability and health outcomes at a scale few other companies can match.

You'll work with an array of internal partners and external stakeholders, garnering their perspectives throughout your roadmap creation and evolution, but also bring them along to your product vision leveraging data, insights, and aligning to business objectives.

Primary Responsibilities:
  • Guide a roadmap through the product lifecycle of strategy, OKR alignment, definition/requirements, delivery/development, and go-to-market
  • Work across teams (e.g. engineering, product, sales, marketing, security, and legal) to solve myriad complex problems in a creative and thoughtful way
  • Oversee the development of your set of product features and determine which order is most impactful to the business and why
  • Contribute to a product culture of consumer and industry research, development, and rapid test and learn
  • Embrace new technologies and establish their value to our app users
  • Stay on top of all relevant health care and consumer technology trends, competitors, and market offerings and ensure your products stay 'high and to the right'
  • Use data to support hypotheses and conclusions for developing business cases and roadmap priorities that inform the success of your products
  • Develop and nurture relationships with an array of internal and external stakeholders; helping to guide roadmap creation and evolution

You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.

Required Qualifications:
  • 2+ years of experience building software products
  • Experience collaborating with engineers and designers to create great user experiences
  • Experience with scrum and agile software development processes
  • Ability to discuss technical concepts, articulate tradeoffs and propose new concepts to your own squad as well as stakeholders
  • An impetus to start with consumers needs (jobs-to-be-done) and work backwards to solutions
  • Familiarity pulling and analysing large sets of data to craft strategy and guide product roadmap creation
  • Technology chops: you don't need to be able to code or draw a architecture diagram from scratch but you do need to know, and be able to explain, how your product/features work from a technology lens
  • Ability to understand and articulate trade-offs and willingness to make pivots based on new information and insights
