Director of Talent
Who we are
Cityblock Health is a new type of healthcare company, operating out of Brooklyn and backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs, along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.
Our mission is to radically improve the health of urban communities, one block at a time. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we bring the capability to deliver care in the home and neighborhood with our field-based teams.
In close collaboration with community based organizations and a leading commercial partner, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. We deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services through a network of neighborhood hubs with deep community-based partnerships and world-class technology.
We partner with payers and at-risk providers, taking capitated financial risk to care for their most vulnerable, high and rising risk members. Additionally, we invest in strategic partnerships with community-based and social services organizations, in some instances bringing them into the value equation through sub-capitation and performance-based compensation.
Over the next year we’ll grow quickly, including entering new markets, each with their own commercial relationships and field-based teams. This role will be a key contributor to the success of our business.
We are seeking a Director of Talent to scale our talent operations & strategy as we approach tremendous scale across new regions. You’ll join Cityblock at a critical point in our growth trajectory: over the next year we expect to more than triple our Product, Engineering, Data, Clinical and Hub-based teams in NYC, as well as additional new markets across the country. In this role, you’ll own the entirety of the full-cycle talent acquisition function, and serve as primary stakeholder to build best-in-class teams. You’ll work within our People team to create an inclusive, consistent framework for our hiring, implementing processes and workflows to streamline the rapid scaling of our growing team and ensuring that we are building a mission-oriented, diverse team committed to changing how we deliver healthcare to those that need it most.
