Lilly Advisor-UX Design Program Mgr in Indianapolis, Indiana
We work in an industry where we can have real impact on people's’ lives. We are here to change the world and make life better for people.
Now is an exciting time -- things are changing. We believe drug efficacy is no longer the end-all and be-all for pharma companies -- digital solutions, data, and insights are fundamental to that change. There are many ways to bring positive benefit to our customers (patients, health care providers and payers), including personalized solutions, enhanced experiences, and solutions that drive behavior change in disease management, just to name a few. Given the limitless opportunities, we believe that digital health is the future for pharma and for healthcare. We are building a team to shape that future, not just be a spectator. Are you in?
Our team and your role
The Digital Health Design Center is committed to exploring how next generation therapeutic ecosystems, connected solutions, and data analytics can improve patient health while reducing the clinical, psychosocial and economic burden that is systemic throughout healthcare today.
We are looking for a UX Design Program Manager to lead day-to-day operations, including prioritization of resources for our Digital Health Design Team. We want a leader who can work across functions (design, business and technical), bring multiple stakeholders at various levels along our journey, while inspiring and driving our Design Team to deliver beautiful products. Fundamental to this role is managing the scope, schedule and budget for design work across our digital portfolio.
How you will maximize your impact
With an entrepreneurial mindset, we will rely on you to maximize the impact of your role, position our team to deliver great things, help our company become a leader in an emerging space, and influence our industry as it nears digital revolution.
We are a team with a “start-up” mentality, yet we operate within a large pharma company, with all the resources, knowledge, and capabilities that come with it. We need you to be excited about that. The opportunity in front of us is not typical -- in scale or in effort. You will need to be scrappy and resourceful, with a capacity for big
ideas that match our vision. With your help, we are going to build things that matter.
