Flatiron Health’s mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research. Our team is building a disruptive, oncology-specific software platform that connects cancer centers across the world on a common technology infrastructure to address key healthcare challenges.
Are you equally comfortable digging into business requirements as drilling into architecture and design with development teams? As a Technical Program Manager (TPM), you will have a key role in creating our technology backbone. You will drive planning, coordination, and delivery of complex software projects. You will collaborate with engineering and product leaders in creating inspiring technology roadmaps, motivating engineers, and driving adoption of new capabilities.
At Flatiron Health we build and run an electronic health record system that powers all of the patient care in over 270 oncology clinics, data processing pipelines, algorithmic and human-operated data curation tools, and customer-facing data analytics and visualization products. We build elegant treatment management tools and systems that clean, structure and understand clinical patient-level data as we build the largest, most comprehensive set of oncology data intelligence. We scale pipelines to handle the world's oncology data with creative engineering solutions to open-ended oncology data and product problems. We build tools and platforms to allow us to generate scientific evidence with a multidisciplinary team of software engineers, biostatisticians, and physicians.
We are looking for seasoned TPMs with experience in managing bleeding-edge technology projects and a passion for solving problems through software.Responsibilities
