We have opportunities for seasoned Project Managers! Do you thrive on managing deliverables and leading change in a complex and innovative environment? You could be our next Project Manager.
This is not your everyday project management team – as a strong team of 18 project managers, we offer work-life balance, collaboration with leadership, and the opportunity to influence change in a health care organization that drives their strategic vision with technology. While this is a mature shop with established processes and onboarding we are always looking for fresh eyes and idea on how to continuously improve on our maturity journey.
Think insurance is boring? Well we’ve been a leader in innovative health care solutions - from pay direct drug card technology to mobile enabled claims management. For decades we have invested in our own technology to ensure we are able to deliver on our strategic objectives by partnering with government and businesses to be a “Leading health solutions partner”. In fact, one of our five core values is focused on innovation; not just in technology investments, but also from a product and business practice perspective. And all that innovation requires adept Project Managers who can make the vision a reality.
Your every day with us:
You will have the opportunity to lead the development of charters, establish schedules, support strategic and complex technology initiatives, develop a deep knowledge of our business and work with a team of exceptional resources to deliver exciting project outcomes.

A dynamic project partner and effective communicator with a high degree of emotional intelligence, you can establish effective working relationships with various stakeholders and adjust communication style to various audiences including senior leadership
