Senior Product Manager, Health Tech

The Company

Johnson & Johnson is the leading health and well-care company in the world, touching over a billion people per day. While our people, brand, scientific and manufacturing expertise, and extensive ecosystem relationships are second to none, our ambitious mission to profoundly change the trajectory of health for humanity will require bold, innovative applications of technology.

The Team

The Health Technology team is a new group based in San Francisco, CA (with presence at the company’s headquarters in New Brunswick, NJ), created to drive strategic adoption of technology across J&J. The team is comprised primarily of experienced operating leaders from successful technology companies (e.g. Google, Dropbox, LinkedIn), and partners with commercial and R&D leaders to identify opportunities to use technology to address health challenges at global scale. The team also develops the strategic and operational plans around those opportunities and executes the applicable product, program, partnership, investment and acquisition needs. Health Tech is comprised of 3 main sub-teams: Strategy & Business Operations, Partnerships & Corporate Development, and Product.

The Role

The Senior Product Manager role is central to the Health Tech team's effort to bring technological innovation excellence to every part of J&J. With your product management background, you will passionately advocate for users, scope and define new products, and lead the execution of offerings to support and grow J&J's businesses; specifically working with J&J's Lung Cancer Initiative (LCI) to successfully prevent and intercept lung cancer using technology. You will collaborate closely with the leaders of LCI to understand the landscape of the disease and develop user centric hypotheses to help prevent new cases or stop them earlier. An experienced product manager who has mastered influence without authority, is an effective and efficient communicator, and can network their way to answers to remove potential roadblocks will excel in the role. In addition, your ability to consistently define and measure success to inform decision making will be invaluable. You will work closely with J&J’s Product, Engineering, Marketing, Communications, Finance, Regulatory, Commercial, R&D, and Legal teams on new initiatives.
