Company Overview:

Cohere Health is illuminating healthcare for patients, their doctors, and all those who are important in a patient’s healthcare experience, both in and out of the doctors office. Founded in August, 2019, we are obsessed with eliminating wasteful friction patients and doctors experience in areas that have nothing to do with health and treatment, particularly for diagnoses that require expensive procedures or medications. To that end, we build software that is expressly designed to ensure the appropriate plan of care is understood and expeditiously approved, so that patients and doctors can focus on health, rather than payment or administrative hassles.

Opportunity Overview:

Cohere is looking for a dynamic self-starter to join our Implementation Team as we seek to expand to new customers and into adjacent markets and customer segments. As Implementation Manager, you will help manage the critical implementation process for new clients. This customer-facing role will quickly ramp up and collaborate cross-functionally to help organize all activities necessary for a successful launch. This role will also play an important role when thinking about any implementation considerations and will partner with the solutions team during the upfront sales, solutioning, and pre-implementation phases. Additionally, this role will help refine best practices based on new customer implementation and will support the creation of a playbook for implementation with future customers. The role will be key to ensuring success with our initial customers and to helping Cohere continue to expand and successfully bring on future customers.

You will report to the Director of Implementation but will interface with both commercial and clinical team members.

If you are passionate about deploying technology-driven solutions to enhance patient experience, drive clinical excellence, and achieve healthcare operational efficiencies, we want to hear from you!

Last but not least: People who succeed here are empathetic teammates who are candid, kind, caring, and embody our core values and principles. We believe that diverse, inclusive teams make the most impactful work. Cohere is deeply invested in ensuring that we have a supportive, growth-oriented environment that works for everyone.

  • Assist teams in moving from pitch to close by serving in an internal project management capacity

  • Work collaboratively to define and optimize processes for effectiveness, efficiency, and consistency
  • Support the creation of a playbook to guide process for implementing with additional customers
  • Build strong relationships with cross-functional teams, both externally and within Cohere

Your Background & Requirements:

  • 5-7 years of experience in healthcare, especially working with health plans on implementations; consulting experience preferred
  • Start-up ready mindset - progress over polish, able to exhibit comfortableness with ambiguity

  • Experience working with cross-functional teams; product development exposure a plus
