Novocardia is on a mission to empower clinicians across the United States to consistently deliver higher-quality, prevention-focused, patient-centered care, and enable clinicians to be rewarded for focusing on these services for their patients, and delivering care now that avoids more advanced disease down the line.


We are seeking a talented and experienced individual to join our growing team as Senior Director of Analytics.  This role affords a truly singular opportunity to work closely with a world-class team to help build a disruptive, mission-driven, physician-led clinical delivery organization from the ground up!


Chronic disease is the dominant cause of avoidable healthcare spending and death in the United States and worldwide.  Fortunately, much of this disease burden and associated spending is potentially avoidable through delivery of more proactive, prevention-focused care. Our founding team has decades of experience in clinical medicine, payer and provider leadership, government, data science, and clinical operations.  We are deeply passionate about improving care quality, and providing more Americans with access to great, evidence-based chronic disease care. We are also deeply committed to building more sustainable and durable payment models for this care – models which reward clinicians for delivering the right care, in the right place, at the right time.


We are looking for high integrity, mission-oriented people who are passionate about improving the quality and value of chronic disease care in America, excited to join a dynamic, rapidly growing, and diverse team, and want to build a disruptive, world-class business.  We are humble and ambitious, learning-oriented and focused on execution, and all in on this venture and vision.  Come join us!
