About us

Ready Responders was founded to empower people to improve healthcare right in their own neighborhoods: we give patients direct access to healthcare professionals, and we give our Responders the opportunity to provide care in their communities. Ready Responders is a non-transport service and provides only on scene care.

This comprehensive, localized approach also allows us to help our friends and neighbors with non-life-threatening conditions, connecting them with healthcare options for lasting care within their communities. Above all, we believe the desire to do good and technology are powerful forces. By combining them, we can make the world a kinder, safer, and healthier place one neighborhood at a time.

About the role

The Project Manager will report to various members of senior management, including the SVP of Patient and Community Care, to oversee pilot projects within the Product and Operations team. This individual will ensure patients are receiving high quality care that addresses all their health needs by developing analytics systems to track patient needs and interventions. The Project Manager will create and manage tight processes to implement experimental interventions on the front-end and evaluate these activities and report metrics on the back-end.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone seeking a challenge in project management—someone who thrives in a fast-paced work environment and wants to take ownership of a diverse body of work. As we enter periods of high growth, no two days are the same in this role and there is constant opportunity for personal growth.

Must be willing to be based in New Orleans and able to work out of our office, on a full-time basis, starting immediately. Please do not apply if you do not meet these criteria.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
