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 Health Tech Strategy team is looking hire a Strategy and Business Operations Lead. You are responsible for owning program start-up and execution activities to help execute on J&J’s ambitious goal of substantially improving human health at global scale. While focusing on the user need, you should embody a “think big” attitude, be scrappy and can make progress in the face of obstacles. You are on the front line of engaging with strategy and product development initiatives helping bring innovative technology-based health and wellness solutions to market across J&J’s consumer, medical device and pharma businesses.

In addition to developing strategy around deploying digital solutions, you'll play a first-hand role in helping figure out how to get these products to market and ensure they gain traction to make the overall initiative successful. You’ll also collaborate on product strategy and play a first-hand role in driving new technology to launch and adoption.
