Company Overview:

Cohere Health is illuminating healthcare for patients, their doctors, and all those who are important in a patient’s healthcare experience, both in and out of the doctors office.  Founded in August, 2019, we are obsessed with eliminating wasteful friction patients and doctors experience in areas that have nothing to do with health and treatment, particularly for diagnoses that require expensive procedures or medications.  To that end, we build software that is expressly designed to ensure the appropriate plan of care is understood and expeditiously approved, so that patients and doctors can focus on health, rather than payment or administrative hassles.

Opportunity Overview:

Reporting to the Senior Director, People Business Partnerships, the Senior People Business Partner (PBP) will be responsible for leading a wide range of HR services and partnerships to support the initiatives and strategic goals of the organization. This position is responsible for partnering with the business stakeholders to formulate and execute plans to optimize structure, people, systems, and processes. 

In this role you will be responsible for providing both strategic and tactical HR support to all Cohere departments. The successful candidate will partner closely with dedicated client groups to build a high-performance organization and culture that recognizes and values differences, and where teamwork is expected. This role will represent the People Team by building and communicating philosophies, processes, policies, and capabilities to department management and employees.

The Sr. PBP position ensures that HR strategy fits into the organization’s overall business strategy, aligning business objectives with employees and management in designated business units. The position forms partnerships across the People function to deliver value-added service to management and employees that reflects the business objectives of the organization. The Sr. PBP maintains an effective level of business literacy about the business unit's financial position, its near and long term goals, midrange plans, its culture, and its competition. The ideal candidate brings creative solutions and thrives in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. Resourcefulness and agility to pivot with the business is needed.

Last but not least: People who succeed here are empathetic teammates who are candid, kind, caring, and embody our core values and principles. We believe that diverse, inclusive teams make the most impactful work. Cohere is deeply invested in ensuring that we have a supportive, growth-oriented environment that works for everyone.
