It's complex looking for healthcare. But it's the perfect challenge for any Product Manager who is looking to contribute to people's lives and meet real needs. If you've been designing and building solutions for digital natives for your whole career, then be ready to continue designing for them but you will also learn how to design for those on the other side of the digital divide - the poor and the elderly. We are helping them understand their best healthcare options among a dizzying array of choices.
As our Director on the Product team for Medicare, you will find that the customers who are using your products are not abstract at all. They are probably your friends and family.
Product Management at eHealth
Our Directors do more than "gather requirements from stakeholders." In addition to directly managing a team of Product professionals, we are Product thinkers at both tactical AND strategic levels. We work with marketers, designers, and engineers to solve some of the most complex, emotionally fraught problems consumers will ever face in their lives. So, we take the insights we've gained about our customers, how they shop for healthcare, and their needs, and use them to help shape product strategy and invent new products. You will also have to see both sides of the products. Not only will you see products from the customer viewpoint, you'll learn about how they are shaped by insurance agencies and the government. If you want to be in the middle of one of the most important conversations in America, then work here.
If you have a passion for eCommerce, this is an interesting place to hone your craft. We aren't trying to convince people to want some cool new app we are trying to help them feel more comfortable with something they absolutely have to buy. We are always asking ourselves where we might be losing, confusing, or distressing our customers, and what we can do to fix that. It's a fun and absorbing challenge.
