Cell and gene therapies are revolutionizing the world of medicine. However, these products are facing massive reimbursement challenges as their cost and value profile are incompatible with existing health insurance models. There is a huge opportunity to help redesign the reimbursement approach for high cost medicine through technology and data. If you are excited about building better solutions to help patients get access to transformational medicine, join us in launching a new health tech venture to power innovative market access solutions for cell and gene therapy.

Who we’re looking for

An accomplished technical co-founder to lead the engineering and build of a healthcare technology company, grow an engineering team and build a high-quality product.

As one of the co-founders, you will build and scale a venture with an important mission from the ground up. If you are up for it, you will:

  • Work closely with the co-founding team to define the product vision and technical strategy.
  • Set up the technology infrastructure, processes, and best practices from the ground up - selecting stack, defining architecture, etc.
  • Be responsible for delivering the MVP of the product.
  • Lead technical conversations during sales and deployment with pharma and payer customers.
  • Build and lead a passionate engineering team.
  • Build and manage the development roadmap, define and track KPIs, progress, and budget.
  • Work with compliance, regulatory and legal teams to ensure that the technical processes adhere to all healthcare compliance requirements.

The ideal CTO co-founder for this venture would bring:

  • Experience building and scaling healthcare patient data solutions, such as a real-world evidence platform, data-driven digital health product, or healthcare IT solutions. 
  • Familiarity with integrating data from a wide range of healthcare sources.
  • Experience with healthcare data and security compliance requirements (HIPAA, SOC 2, GDPR, etc.)
  • A proven track record in technical leadership roles, hiring, managing and growing a team.
  • The capability to drive the technical build on both front-end and back-end with a start-up/agile mindset.

Other useful assets:

  • Experience at an early-stage or fast-growing startup
  • Familiarity with electronic health records, healthcare data repositories and health data APIs

What you’ll get: 

  • Significant founder equity
  • Competitive compensation
  • Market competitive health insurance and benefits
