We’re hiring a Principal, Consulting!

Rock Health

About Us:

Rock Health is a venture fund and advisory services business dedicated to digital health. We support both sides of the enterprise market for digital health—funding digital health entrepreneurs and advising enterprise corporations, with the ultimate goal of catalyzing the scalable adoption of groundbreaking technologies in healthcare.

Put simply, our mandate is impact. We want to make healthcare massively better for every human being.

About the Role:

We’re hiring a Principal within our digital health Consulting practice. You will help senior executives at client organizations make high-impact choices to embrace digital health strategies, achieve business objectives, and realize breakthrough value associated with those choices. You will build trusted relationships with senior executives in the enterprise healthcare market (Health Plan, Health System, Pharmaceutical, and Medical Technology clients), develop business opportunities at our existing and new client organizations, deliver high impact engagements to our clients by managing, coaching, and mentoring members of our consulting team. Part of your job will be to develop thought leadership around digital health in collaboration with the venture and research teams within Rock Health and to publish articles based on the insights you have developed.

This position is remote, with occasional travel when appropriate.

About You:

You are an experienced principal or senior engagement manager in healthcare consulting who has a passion for digital health and a desire to build up a new business. You have experience at a major firm, but you are eager to work in an entrepreneurial environment where you are part of the leadership team. You are a great team leader, setting direction and managing teams to execute seamlessly on projects, but also coaching and mentoring to build capabilities within your team and create a positive team experience. You are able to collaborate effectively and are a team player, pitching in where needed. You have a strong desire to develop as a leader and a professional, and recognize that this requires being open to coaching and feedback from your team.

You are a strategic thinker who can “crack the problem” and can communicate the answer clearly in both written and verbal communications. You are comfortable with ambiguity, and are confident charting a path forward for the team and prioritizing among multiple competing tasks. You have strong client management capabilities and build easy rapport with stakeholders across client teams.

You are excited by the opportunity to build a new practice (a startup within Rock Health) and also to build your expertise and network in Digital Health.
