Principal/Senior Principal, Life Sciences Partnerships

| New York

Flatiron Health's Research organization was started in 2014 with the goal of serving cancer patients by accelerating research. We believe that existing clinical research paradigms are ill-equipped to answer the research questions that face drug developers, academic researchers, and regulators in the oncology space today. By focusing on technology solutions that can be deployed widely across the Flatiron network of providers, Flatiron has the opportunity to generate insights that were previously impossible.
Today, 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, 11 of the top 13 oncology biopharma companies, and the FDA, all focused on using RWE to answer critical questions quickly and safely.

The Life Sciences Partnerships team supports our biopharma partners in advancing their research priorities using RWE and other relevant Flatiron Research offerings. We’re looking for individuals that can represent the company as product experts to our life science partners. This job requires a foundational understanding of the healthcare industry, as well as client management and organizational skills, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a passion for tackling one of the most complex medical and technological challenges of our time.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead Flatiron’s strategic approach with life sciences partners to ensure annual business development targets are realized
  • Independently identify new partners to expand Flatiron’s life sciences book of business
  • Establish strong relationships with senior executives across clients to raise awareness for Flatiron’s offerings and secure support for the development of new business opportunities
  • Manage a team of Associate Principals to execute against Flatiron’s sales strategy and provide strategic oversight during contract negotiations
  • Support post-sale relationship at strategic level to ensure life sciences clients unlock the full potential of Flatiron’s products
  • Develop deep partnerships with cross-functional Flatiron teams to support strategic thinking across product portfolio and drive decisions to invest in new / existing life sciences offerings
  • Oversee development of sales strategy, new business proposal writing, development of client presentations, and tailoring of other client facing materials
  • Collaborate with accounts colleagues to enhance team’s ability to deliver industry leading solutions
  • Identify opportunities to support ongoing development and professional growth of direct reports
  • Regularly travel to client site and industry relevant conferences (anticipated travel: 20-40%, including local day trips to client sites)

Requirements:

  • You have a B.A. or B.S. (preferred discipline in sciences) from a top university
  • You have 8+ years experience in client-facing roles of increasing responsibility, delivering products or services to life science partners, in organizations such as top 5 consulting firms, boutique life sciences consulting firms, or healthcare IT/analytics companies
  • You have a track record of success in developing long term business relationships with life science companies in a strategic and abstract space
  • You can apply your commercial or medical oncology content knowledge to support end-to-end client engagement process, including capabilities presentations, project scoping, and customer support
  • You are flexible, have a start-up mindset, and enjoy a fast-paced environment
  • You have the ability to juggle multiple client interactions and deadlines simultaneously and have the versatility to collaborate with individuals at all levels and across various functions within life sciences firms
  • You have exceptional written and communication skills and experience owning high profile client relationships
  • You must be data-driven, detail-oriented, proactive, self-motivated, self-directed, engaging, personable, have a positive attitude, and be comfortable with ambiguity

Bonus Points:

  • You have a deep understanding of data and the competitive landscape in the bio-pharmaceutical market
  • Experience utilizing healthcare data and/or healthcare IT solutions

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

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

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

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.
