Overview

Why we’re excited to get to work:

The mission for Payformance Solutions is simple. We aim to be a catalyst for payment transformation in the healthcare industry. Our proprietary software solutions allow payers and providers to focus on what really matters: providing patients with access to care that yields the best health outcomes, at the lowest costs.

 

The healthcare industry is complex and fragmented. Payers and providers are faced with a lack of transparency and conflicting financial goals that fail to consider the health outcomes of patients. Payformance Solutions offers data-driven, turnkey software solutions that provide payers and providers with the technical tools and resources needed to design, evaluate, build, measure, and negotiate value-based reimbursement contracts — as a neutral third party. Our holistic solutions allow payers and providers to collaborate in an ecosystem that aligns financial goals with patient outcomes.

 

Overview: What we are looking for:

  • We are currently seeking an IT Project Manager to partner with our growing team of software engineers, data architects, data analysts, and healthcare policy experts to manage our on-going technical projects. This professional enjoys being in a fast-paced, start-up environment, tackling new challenges as they arise.  As a leader, the IT Project Manager will help juggle the day-to-day moving pieces of the project management life-cycle, particularly as it relates to system implementation.  Having experience working within the healthcare and consulting industries will help your technical and project management savviness, leading cross-functional teams to success.

Responsibilities

What you’ll do:

  • Manage technical projects from start-to-finish; system implementation will be a big focus for this role
  • Take ownership and provide leadership of deliverables, timelines, communication, and budgets
  • Build and support relationships across cross-functional teams to foster appropriate and timely communication, addressing and resolving issues as they arise
  • Proactively assess progress, vulnerabilities, and risks -- identifying potential crises, and developing and executing contingency plans as needed

Qualifications

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in IT or related field required; Master’s degree preferred
  • 5+ years of technical project management experience (PMP certification would be a bonus)
  • 5+ years of system implementation skills
  • Experience within the healthcare and consulting industries is strongly preferred
  • Leadership mentality with the ability to communicate clearly and concisely across the organization

 

How we’ll support you:

In addition to the meaningful and challenging work, Payformance’s dynamic work environment emphasizes integrity, personal commitment, and teamwork. We offer an outstanding benefits program that includes:

  • A competitive annual salary
  • 100% employer-paid medical option (employee, spouse, family)
  • 100% employer-paid life insurance policy
  • 100% employer-paid short-term and long-term disability insurance
  • 401k Retirement Plan (5% employer contribution)
  • Healthy work/life balance… Our flexible office hours and time-off allows you to make the most of your time in and out of the office to fit your needs. Plus, an optional work-from-home day once a week (after 3 months)
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Annual personal learning budget (books, conferences, etc.)
  • Thirsty Thursday team building events
  • Free gym Access
  • Awesome coworkers
  • Work with a highly collaborative and values-driven team
