• You comprise a mix of strong analytical capabilities, sharp business acumen, and a “get stuff done” mentality.
• You have the entrepreneurial ability to own initiatives from ideation to completion, and are detail-oriented, dependable, proactive, and independent.
• You thrive on turning ambiguity and chaos into a coherent and cohesive plan.
• You are a team member who is excited about improving healthcare.
• You are curious, tenacious, and want to work hard with our team on difficult, important challenges.
• You are great at problem solving and have loads of hustle and prior operational experience.

• You get excited about making today's approach to healthcare look dinosauric in a few years.
