Job Description

With our best in breed suite of cloud software products, we've taken healthcare into the modern age empowering medical care providers to get back to what they do best-- treating patients. We're incredibly successful, fun, and looking to bring in creative and passionate people motivated by the challenge of making healthcare operate the way it should. Product Innovation Associate - Class of 2016 (PI at athenahealth is similar to Product Manager/Program Manager at other software companies. PI's are asked to do more and own more than a typical PM so we use a different name for them.) You're the kind of person who has always excelled at whatever it is that you really put your mind to. You love to learn about new fields, techniques and disruptive innovations. You find it difficult to turn down a good challenge, and secretly have several theories for how to finally get the world to work right. You're comfortable with technology, but find that the real challenge is figuring out how to get it to work properly when real people start getting in the way. You may not know the ins and outs of the healthcare system, but you do know that it's badly broken; that it eats an insane percentage of our GDP; and that it needs fixing now. Excellence is rewarded at athenahealth -- how far you go is really up to you. The working environment is friendly and open. The folks you'll be working with are top notch, and will likely be some of the smartest people you've ever worked with. The team is comprised of Harvard/MIT/Olin/CMU/Harvey Mudd/GTech/Cornell/WPI/Tufts grads, former professors, and just plain smart people. PI at athenahealth: Drives the design & delivery of strategic business solutions through aligning vision, technology, and process…in other words, get stuff done. Associates must be strong analytical problem solvers who might have been software developers, if they didn't yearn for greater interpersonal challenge. PI's are the bridge between athena's business line operators, and our elite software development team.
