Amwell believes that digital care delivery will transform healthcare. We offer a single, comprehensive platform to support all telehealth needs from urgent to acute and post-acute care, as well as chronic care management and healthy living. With over a decade of experience, Amwell powers telehealth solutions for over 240 health systems comprised of 2,000 hospitals and 55 health plan partners with over 36,000 employers, covering over 150 million lives.

Brief Overview:

We’re looking for an Associate Product Manager to help deliver on our bold mission. If you want to change the way healthcare is delivered… if you have an opinion on whether shipping is more important than perfection… if you’ve geeked out on the possibilities of telehealth or how the storm of new virtual care delivery models can transform the way patients receive care… if you’re looking for an opportunity to build world-class enterprise telehealth products… then this is the job for you!

Our current product team is awesome at:

  • Product management. We’re not talking about “agile product owner” nonsense. We mean real product management work where shape and lay out the product strategy and roadmap to drive business results that matter.
  • Being obsessively customer focused.
  • Delivering an amazing user experience.
  • Getting product to market. We mean really fast. Even for a company at our scale.
  • Forget scrum, XP, Kanban, whatever. We have our own unique flavor of agile. And it totally works.
  • Driving revenue and ROI. We’re not sales, marketing, account management, or customer success. But make no mistake: We Drive The Business.

What will you be doing? You’ll be responsible for partnering with our product management, device operations, hardware engineering, software development and UI/UX design teams to manage our suite of telehealth devices, and bring new features and functionality to market. You’ll be responsible for defining, prioritizing, documenting and driving requirements from inception to delivery. As the voice of the customer champion, you’ll representing our customers in day-to-day decisions made at the engineering and delivery levels. Once launched, you will be equally as passionate about enabling our client-facing teams to be able to communicate these exciting new capabilities to customers.

Who are we looking for?

  • A strong, proactive individual with a bias for action and a passion for solving complex problems.
  • We value Product Managers who want to truly understand our customers’ world, as well as sit with engineers and dig into the details as owners of their specific feature/product.
  • Someone who has an innate ability to understand complex and technical concepts, and to plan, prioritize and seamlessly integrate all moving parts in order to release high quality products.

We need a Product Manager. Not a project manager or scum master. Not an IT manager or engineering manager. Not a UI/UX designer or product marketer or anyone who is not specifically a product manager. We need a self-starter with a passion for solving complex problems and a knack for understanding the perspective of our end-users who wants to revolutionize the way the world thinks about healthcare.

Is this job for you? It could be, if:

  • You’re a “product person”. If you’re not sure what that means, this probably won’t be a good fit for you.
  • You can be hands-on. All of us contribute as individuals. Yes, as Product Management, we create product strategy and define roadmaps. We also roll up our sleeves and get in the trenches with our engineering and customer implementation teams. If you’re looking to manage a team day 1, have a fancy title, or need a corner office, this won’t be the right fit for you.
  • You’re comfortable in a fast-paced environment. If you’re not comfortable in an environment where change is constant, if you value fancy desks and a predictable work schedule, you won’t be happy here.
  • You thrive on growth. This is an opportunity to work in a fast-growing market on major business challenges. You’ll have the support of passionate, experienced co-workers, but our biggest challenges lie ahead of us. You’ll play a key role in finding and delivering answers.

If you’re a decisive, self-directed problem solver who thrives in a fast paced, collaborative environment, and is up for the challenge of working with the best product team in the world, then we want to talk to you!

Core Responsibilities:

You will engage with our engineering and cross-functional teams to guide execution of key initiatives on our product roadmap for our telehealth devices.

  • Be the voice of the user within the engineering teams, clearly articulating user needs and customer goals, and translating them into technical solutions that map back to solving a user problem or job
  • Incorporate this voice of the customer input into our backlog prioritization process and scoping of new requirements
  • Prioritize and document requirements for upcoming product releases
  • Collaborate with our highly creative design and engineering teams to reach the best possible version of a feature or enhancement to bring to market
  • Actively work with the team to decompose epics/features into user stories that are granular enough for the team to estimate and work on

  • Educate users and internal stakeholders on new features and enhancements, and create and/or contribute to relevant internal and external communications
  • Provide key contribution to the creation of release notes and release related communications for owned product updates and enhancements

  • Support all product management team activities
