About the company

At Covera Health, we have proven that advanced data science can prevent serious misdiagnoses, which result in poor outcomes for patients and increased costs for payers. Starting in radiology, we are using our proprietary quality analytics framework to help people recover better, faster, and more affordably. Today, we are working with some of the largest healthcare payers in the nation to potentially impact millions of patient lives.

Such projects may include, but are not limited to, new client implementations for our Radiology Center of Excellence program, enhancements to existing programs, and other strategic projects that are important and fundamental to the company’s value creation.

  • Take ownership of and lead such projects, including, but not limited to, setting milestones, charting timelines, determining deliverables, allocating resources, tracking progress using data, facilitating cross-functional meetings, communicating performance, etc.
  • Think critically to foresee and overcome potential implementation risks and issues, and be a driver to develop solutions and collaborate with partners to implement them.
  • Be analytical and metric-oriented as it pertains to understanding, prioritizing, and measuring the impact of key projects and how to make decisions to move them forward
  • Perform other duties and contribute to additional initiatives/projects, as deemed appropriate by the Company’s management team.


  • B.A. or Master’s degree.
  • 3-7 years of work experience focused on complex project implementation and/or program management operations in a management consulting firm, healthcare start up, high-growth health insurance company, or innovative care delivery organization.
  • Prior work experience in a dynamic startup environment preferred.
  • Ability to work cross-functionally across various departments and roles.
  • Exceptional project management and organizational skills.
  • Strong communicator with excellent ability to work in a team environment. 


You'll be a full-time employee with competitive salary, stock options, and great benefits. Benefits include medical, dental, and vision insurance (with premiums fully covered), FSA, pre-tax commuter benefits, flexible paid time-off, and a nice, new office space. Most importantly, you'll get to work with an incredible team of other smart, motivated people who are passionate about changing healthcare for the better!

An Insider's view of Covera Health

What's something quirky about your company?

When we were thinking of how to design informative town halls we felt it was important to make it creative and fun. At the first one we ever had at 15 people, our presenters jogged out to Eye of the Tiger- since then it's evolved to include catering, decorations, and even costumes! It's become a highlight of the month that everyone looks forward to

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When working on a project with my team, I try not to be too prescriptive with exactly how I think we should solve a problem. I’ve found that when people have the freedom to come up with their own ideas, their solutions and work products are often better than what I was originally imagining, which leads to better results for our entire team!
