Invitae is dedicated to bringing comprehensive genetic information into mainstream medicine to improve healthcare for billions of people! Our team is driven to make a difference for the patients we serve. We are leading the transformation of the genetics industry, by making clinical-grade genetic information affordable and accessible to guide health decisions across all stages of life. 

The Strategy team at Invitae is a small, centralized team that brings our business, financial and strategic skills to help the organization identify, analyze and drive growth opportunities and critical initiatives. 

The team also functions like an internal consultancy - helping teams across the company prepare for growth, evaluate development proposals and commercial strategies, set product pricing, improve our business operations, and assist with other topics that come up at a fast-growing company. We are looking for a motivated, meticulous, teammate to serve as the Strategic Planning manager on these projects.

What you’ll do:

Internal Consulting and Strategic Planning

  • Lead growth initiatives from idea conception through analysis, identification of business improvement opportunities, and management review to designing and deploying effective solutions 
  • Work with operating teams to help define opportunities for process analysis, operational improvement, strategic planning and general problem solving
  • Manage cross-functional teams to achieve the objectives above; mentor and develop junior team members
Analysis and Problem Solving
  • Strategic analysis - Working both independently and cross-functionally, help the company make and implement important business decisions by preparing operating and financial models and related written materials detailing the assumptions, considerations, recommendations, and alternatives
  • Independent thinking and problem solving - We are also asked to analyze all sorts of business situations both inside and outside the company. This requires someone who can think for themselves, attack - and enjoy!
  • challenging problems, and learn/understand new topics.
What you bring: 
  • 7-10+ years in management consulting, strategic planning, product management, general management, or equivalent
  • Proven ability to lead cross-functional, consulting-style projects
  • Thrive on solving complex problems, from defining the problem statement, structuring the approach and performing the analysis. We enjoy the challenge of making order, shared understanding, and efficiency out of uncertainty, lack of information, and inefficiency … and hope you do too!
  • Meticulous, proactive, flexible and able to handle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and working through ambiguity to find useful business solutions
  • Experience in managing and developing junior team members
  • Be a storyteller: good written communication, verbal communication, and data-visualization skills
  • Be collaborative, low ego, team-first, know what you do and don’t know, constantly improving
Preferred skills: 
  • Masters of Business Administration or similar advanced degree
  • Experience in life sciences is nice but not required by any means. Will consider all backgrounds.
  • Experience collaborating with operations, supply chain, and manufacturing functions
  • Experience working with commercial and financial planning teams
  • Experience in working with software or product development teams

Please apply even if you don’t meet all of the “What you bring” requirements noted. It’s rare that someone checks every single item, it’s ok, we encourage you to apply anyways.
