One of the world’s most prestigious medical centers is seeking a smart and forthright Product Owner to join an extremely close-knit and super-smart team that’s devoted to making a difference in health care by reinventing the patient experience.
This medical center is re-dedicating itself to a patient-centered approach to its digital platform and the product team is driving new features and functionality to meet the challenge.. At the same time, the team continues to drive new functionality required by stakeholders (e.g., department chairs, faculty, administration), so the innovation is just beginning.
First off, this tech team runs in an Agile/Scrum environment, so you’ll be operating in a familiar environment — and, in this role, you’ll interview stakeholders, connect the dots, identify patterns, and develop future roadmaps. You’ll develop user stories, capture business requirements, and conduct user acceptance testing, finding opportunities and gaps as you go. You’ll drive meetings with chairs, senior medical staff, and researchers and translate their ideas and concerns into meaningful actions.
You’ll be in charge of grooming an existing backlog, and helping with prioritization. (We’ll be honest: one way this job could go south is if you aren’t able to manage multiple priorities and issues. If you haven’t yet built up quite enough people skills to find out which of several tasks are most critical, this might not be the right place for you.)
You’ll be keeping track of the status of everything using JIRA, and you’ll need to have a clear vision of the project’s whole roadmap, and a good idea of how your work fits in.
Hired Gun Profile
The medical center is seeking a particular kind of detail-oriented executor with a big-picture orientation who’s also an intellectually curious problem solver. Most likely, you have already been a Product Manager, or at least done substantial amounts of analogous work—and you may have worked at a digital company known for its customer-focused approach in the digital concierge world, such as ZocDoc, OpenTable, or at a place like Airbnb or Seamless.
You thrive on innovation and love the thrill of startups, but you also put a priority on the stability and cohesiveness of being part of a bigger team, and love to know that you are making a difference. Ideally, you should be passionate about the next generation of health-care innovation.
You should know JIRA or at least be able to show that you’re someone who can pick up on this and similar project management dashboards. And you have a strong preference for working in an Agile environment.
In this role, you can make a big impact—something that might not be as easy to do at less forward-thinking institutions. If you want to be part of a passionate team that cares about the next generation of healthcare, this gig is for you.
An intriguing opportunity for product managers looking to gain experience with cutting-edge tools and use their talents at a medical center that’s a leader in its field.
