Director of Sales and Partnerships Remote /
Expanding Our Impact
Since first launching its product in late 2013, CareMessage has partnered with 400 healthcare organizations in 43 states across the country, reaching 10M+ underserved patients.
In the past two years, from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic to today, the CareMessage team has risen to the occasion to support a 10x growth in our messaging volume, as well as evolving customer needs- from supporting COVID testing and COVID vaccinations, to filling immediate needs for patients tied to food insecurity and housing.
As a part of the CareMessage team, you can play a key role in helping improve health outcomes at a national scale for the most vulnerable patient populations.
Our team at CareMessage is solving the difficult problem of engaging the hardest-to-reach Medicaid and uninsured patients through their mobile devices, in an effort to improve health outcomes and bend the healthcare cost curve in the United States and someday globally.
We are privileged to have Google, Pershing Square, Johnson and Johnson, Ballmer Group, KKR and Salesforce among our philanthropic investors (~$30M raised since our launch in 2013), and to count over 400 healthcare organizations nationwide as customers. Together, we are transforming the lives of nearly 10 million Medicaid and uninsured patients by reaching them through their mobile devices and transforming their health outcomes.
Since March 2020, we have doubled our customer base while facilitating more than 100M communications between safety-net providers and patients around COVID-19. At the same time, we have grown revenue significantly while reducing our burn rate by more than 60%. We are excited to have reached the point where we are looking for a gifted leader to join us as a remote VP Sales and Partnerships to help us achieve our ambitious customer acquisition goals.
We are fortunate to be in a strong position as a market leader in our space with 400+ paying customers that love our product and what we stand for as a company. We have a track record of many years of constant improvement within our sales function buttressed by a strong product-driven culture. This individual will help strengthen that success by growing our people, leading key relationships and closely partnering with our product, marketing and customer success leadership to help us scale our customer acquisition.
