We're looking for a Strategic Operations Senior 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. 

What You'll Do

In this role you’ll work primarily on special projects for Flatiron’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO) as a member of our Strategic Operations team. You’ll be an operational partner to the scientists, quality specialists, and regulatory affairs team in our Research Organization, working to support their critical role in providing clinical, regulatory, quality, statistical, and methodological direction and oversight for all of our research.

In this role you will:

  • Drive forward complex and/or critical projects from concept to execution in collaboration with senior leadership from across the company
  • Establish strong relationships with stakeholders, senior management, and other critical colleagues across the company
  • Serve as the primary liaison between external consultants and internal teams in supporting novel or emerging workstreams
  • Spearhead new or revamped processes to maximize efficiencies
  • Play point on organizing financial, strategic planning, and headcount management processes within the CMO org
  • Support the evolution and development of our quality and regulatory teams
  • Conceptualize and gain buy-in on improvements to org structure, find knowledge and skills gaps and work cross-functionally to address them
  • Develop proposals and manage follow-through on a number of strategic initiatives spearheaded by the CMO
  • Oversee daily operations through collaboration with senior management and department leaders

The role will be crucial to cultivating collaboration across teams, and developing solutions to foster a more high-functioning organization.

Who You Are

You're a detail-oriented, resourceful thinker with 8-15 years experience in strategy or business operations, with deep experience working cross-functionally with senior stakeholders. 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; Master’s a bonus
  • You ideally have experience at a pharmaceutical or biotech company
  • You have strong organizational skills and business process experience with the ability to keep projects and processes on track, maintain accountability and relationships with very senior internal and external stakeholders
  • You are a strong and clear communicator (written and verbal) 
  • You are skilled at gracefully managing up, down, and across
  • You are willing to work on a wide range of projects and requests with varying levels of complexity
  • You are experienced at managing projects that require broad engagement and buy-in from across the company
  • You are excited about working in an environment that requires constant adaptability and flexibility
  • 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 experience within a regulated environment (e.g. Food & Drug Administration [FDA], Health and Human Services [HHS], Medicare/Medicaid)
  • You have exposure to EHR data
  • You have experience with project management tools such as Wrike

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.

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.
