Job Description

At Rock Health, we’re making healthcare massively better by investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs, advising major corporations on what matters in digital health, and working to scale health equity for all humanity.

About Rock Health Advisory

Rock Health Advisory works with leading Fortune 500 companies—across healthcare, technology, retail, and more—on strategies to bridge the gap between entrepreneurial innovation and the status quo by improving their existing products and services and building new ones.

Within Rock Health Advisory, Rock Health Consulting is a boutique consultancy that supports enterprise companies on digital health strategy and innovation, helping our clients compete in the evolving digital health landscape. Disruptive digital health strategies require outside-the-box thinking. At Rock Health, we identify and assess new opportunities by infusing creativity and future-thinking into our process, connecting dots in new ways. (And we’re so nerdy that we think that’s super cool!) We also help further the digital health ecosystem in many other ways including mentoring startups, publishing cutting-edge insights on the industry, and presenting at industry conferences.

About the Role:

We’re hiring a Principal (or Head of Creative Execution/Grand Master Consultant/Vice GM—if you can come up with a better title, let us know!) within our digital health consulting practice. There are two main parts to this role. The first is leading high impact engagements which help our clients develop new digital health strategies. This involves building trusted relationships with senior executives at healthcare and tech companies operating in the digital health market (Tech, Retail, Diagnostics, Health Plan, Health System, Health Tech, Pharma and MedTech, and developing business opportunities at our existing and new client organizations. You will manage, coach, and mentor teams to identify innovative opportunities and deliver high-impact engagements at the cutting edge of digital health.

The second part of your job will be supporting the internal development of our own consulting practice. This includes coming up with new and better ways to do things across our business (e.g. training, development, operations, engagement delivery).

In addition, you will work with us to continue to further the digital health ecosystem through writing and publishing thought leadership, supporting startups, and collaborating with the venture and research teams within Rock Health.

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 a new and different kind of consulting business. You have already honed your consulting chops, and you are eager to work in an environment where you can be creative and challenge conventional thinking. You are eager to take on an entrepreneurial role and become part of the leadership team. You are a great team leader, setting direction and guiding teams to execute seamlessly on projects. You have an eye for spotting potential hiccups and course correcting before things go wrong. You maintain a strong focus on coaching and mentoring to build capabilities and a positive culture within your teams, but you are also not afraid to roll up your sleeves and dig in where needed. You are a strategic thinker who can create the right environment to help your team innovate new ideas and approaches and 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 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 have strong client management capabilities and build easy rapport with stakeholders across client teams. You are excited by the opportunity to join a new practice (a startup within Rock Health) and build your expertise and network in digital health.
