Company Overview:

Blink Health is a healthcare technology company that builds products to make prescriptions accessible and affordable to everybody. Our two primary products – BlinkRx and Quick Save – remove traditional roadblocks within the current prescription supply chain, resulting in better access to critical medications and improved health outcomes for patients.

BlinkRx is the world’s first pharma-to-patient cloud that offers a digital concierge service for patients who are prescribed branded medications. Patients benefit from transparent low prices, free home delivery, and world-class support on this first-of-its-kind centralized platform. With BlinkRx, never again will a patient show up at the pharmacy only to discover that they can’t afford their medication, their doctor needs to fill out a form for them, or the pharmacy doesn’t have the medication in stock.

We are a highly collaborative team of builders and operators who invent new ways of working in an industry that historically has resisted innovation. Join us!

The Opportunity:

The Pharmacy Partnerships team works with BlinkRx’s pharmacy partners to ensure patients can access their medications as easily and affordably as possible. As a Strategic Operations Associate, you will be given a broad range of high-impact responsibilities. You will be heavily relied upon to execute on multiple strategic projects at once, problem solve on a daily basis, and maintain a high degree of operational rigor to help get things done quickly and efficiently. You will also need to develop a detailed understanding of the pharmaceutical supply chain, where Blink fits into it, and how the work of the Pharmacy Partnerships team impacts the long-term vision and strategy for the company. Blink is growing extremely fast, so you will be expected to adapt quickly to an ever-changing environment and set of short-term goals.

You will be responsible for:

  • Managing strategic projects that will require you to work cross-functionally with members of the product, engineering, patient services, and legal teams
  • Program managing the onboarding/implementation of new pharmacy partners and ensuring operational readiness when onboarding new pharma manufacturer clients
  • Supporting the account management of existing pharmacy partners
  • Creating and monitoring analytical reports for understanding our current metrics and managing toward our northstar goals
  • Interfacing day-to-day with Blink’s pharmacy team to help identify issues and implement comprehensive solutions
  • Serving as a pharmacy network SME for the company, including building a deep understanding of each pharmacy partner’s unique capabilities and payer/geographic coverage

A successful applicant will fit the following criteria:

  • 3+ years of management consulting or operations/program management at a startup (health tech is preferred)
  • Experience leading cross-functional projects and simultaneously managing multiple workstreams
  • A relentless problem-solver and comfortable with ambiguity
  • A strong performer with a track record of success in fast-paced environments
  • Excited by the prospect of diving into complex problems in the healthcare space to improve patient outcomes
  • Capable of project management in a technical environment with a focus on execution and documenting results
  • Comfort with analyzing and interpreting data. Experience with Tableau is preferred
  • Strong proficiency with Excel and PowerPoint (or equivalents)
  • Motivated by Blink’s mission to address the medication affordability and accessibility crisis in America
  • Experience in health care is preferred but not required
