We're looking for a Strategic Operations Manager to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career.

Flatiron Research is focused on innovating in the Real-World Evidence (RWE) space. Our technology-first approach has allowed us to build RWE data sets with higher quality, accuracy, recency, and scale than any other data set that is available. We have active partnerships with top-tier academic medical centers, the top 15 biopharma companies in oncology, and the FDA, all focused on using RWE to answer critical questions quickly and safely.

What You'll Do

In this role on our Strategic Operations team, you'll work across the Research organization to define and drive key business processes and reporting. You’ll interface closely with Research leadership to track metrics and surface insights that facilitate strategic decision making and prioritization and serve as a critical partner across teams in driving operational excellence as Flatiron’s business continues to scale. You’ll also be responsible for the development and maintenance of resources, tools, and processes to optimize team effectiveness/efficiency within one of Flatiron’s core RWE business lines. 

In this role you will:

  • Drive execution of aspects of Flatiron’s annual strategic planning and budgeting processes
  • Facilitate routine reporting on key operating and financial metrics to Research leadership (ex. monthly and quarterly business review processes) with an eye toward continuous improvement
  • Partner with product leadership to scale resource planning/allocation processes, define and report on key metrics to inform/drive strategic and financial priorities, and generally mature the operations of complex project delivery teams
  • Own other cross-functional strategic and operational projects to support key business objectives (e.g., process improvement, implementation of tools to collect and report on key metrics), as needed

This role will require a high-level of cross-functional collaboration, flexing up and down in contribution (from note taking to ownership of critical workstreams), and importantly, an ability to develop a trusting working relationship with all internal Research stakeholders. You’ll be a key liaison between many teams, including our Life Sciences Partnerships, Go-To-Market Analytics, Strategic Finance, and Product teams, charged with driving internal operations and enabling teams to scale Flatiron’s long-term research offerings.

Who You Are

You are skilled in business operations, project management, analytical/quantitative thinking, and structured communication (both oral and written), and are excited about driving overall operational efficiency. You’re metrics and impact oriented. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact.

  • You have a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience
  • You have 5+ years of postgraduate work experience in startup, tech, and/or consulting environments
  • You have experience with analytics, business operations and/or process improvement
  • You love data and get excited about leveraging data, metrics, and reporting to solve challenging business problems
  • You have experience working in excel/spreadsheets and developing dashboards or reports to drive decision-making
  • You are skilled at gracefully managing up, down, and across and have worked cross-functionally with very senior stakeholders
  • You are able to juggle multiple projects at once with varying levels of complexity
  • You are excited about working in an environment that requires constant adaptability and flexibility, and taking big ideas and shaping them into something high value for an organization
  • You are scrappy and intellectually curious

 If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.

Extra Credit 
  • You have experience in healthcare, medical research and/or oncology
  • You have owned business reporting and/or strategic planning processes within an organization
  • You have exposure to EHR data
  • You have experience with Professional Services Automation tools, such as Mavenlink or Salesforce
Why You Should Join Our Team

At Flatiron, we strive to build and maintain an environment where employees from all backgrounds are valued, respected and have the opportunity to succeed. You'll also find a culture of continuous learning, broad and inclusive employee support offerings, and a commitment to supporting our team members in all aspects of their lives—at home, at work and everywhere in between.

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

Abhishek

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
