Verana Health partners with leading medical associations to transform clinical data into actionable real-world evidence. These partnerships enable Verana to harness the comprehensive data found in qualified clinical data registries and other specialty data sources to accelerate medical research and enhance patient care. Verana raised $100 million from investors including GV, formerly Google Ventures, and Bain Capital Ventures, showing a continued thirst for new data-driven approaches to treating disease.
Our team is reinventing how medical research happens with data and technology. This is a company built by and for people who are looking to get out of their comfort zone and try new things, who want to learn and grow quickly, and who seek to be part of a mission-driven team committed to improving patient lives. Our headquarters are located in San Francisco and we have additional offices in Knoxville, TN and New York City with employees working remotely in AZ, CA, FL, GA, IL, MA, NC, NJ, NY, OR, PA, TN, TX, VA, WA, and WI. All employees are required to have permanent residency in one of these states. Candidates who are willing to relocate are also encouraged to apply.
The Product Marketing Director is a crucial role in helping to define the future of Verana Health’s product strategy. The ideal candidate is a highly analytical visionary and fluid collaborator who has a demonstrated track record of working with and through others to drive success. This person should have experience leading resources to conduct strategic assessment and research, but should also be comfortable “getting their hands dirty” in data analysis, market research, and product launch activities. In tight collaboration with Product Management, this person will lead upstream marketing efforts—go-to-market strategy, market intelligence, messaging/positioning, and product launches—and will also play a key role in partnering with Marketing, Sales, and Commercial Operations to inform downstream activity.
