Blink Health is a well-funded healthcare technology company on a mission to make prescription drugs more accessible and affordable for everyone. We're scaling up in a highly complex vertical to change the way Americans access the prescription drugs they need.

Our proprietary platform and supply chain allow us to offer everyone — whether they have insurance or not — amazingly inexpensive prices on their medications. Blink is providing a life-changing experience for people all over the country and fixing how opaque, unfair and overpriced healthcare has become. We are a highly collaborative team of builders and operators who invent new ways of working in an industry that historically has resisted innovation. Join us!

Blink is looking for a seasoned manager to lead our stellar IT team and help run our office and Cloud infrastructure, Service Desk, and Network Operations. This position is operationally responsible for ensuring the availability and integrity of all IT systems.

You will lead our company’s IT strategy and for the delegation and management of large projects. Our current team mostly focuses on desktop support and SaaS management. The entire team will focus on developing creative solutions for daily problems and opportunities. This role is a blended management/hands-on role— we anticipate something like 40% hands-on work, 40% people and process management, and 20% working with other folks at Blink on IT strategy.

What You'll Do:

  • Run the IT team, with a focus on longer-term initiatives and giving other members of the team opportunity to grow
  • Set objectives and priorities with team, ensuring timely, accurate, and consistent service and communication to internal business partners

  • Support the team in incident resolution, being part of on call rotations
  • Oversee the  administration of our office LAN and remote office LANs

Who You Are:

  • You're a people person — you connect well with technically savvy engineers and also with folks who just want their wifi to work.
  • As a manager, you operate as a player/coach – meaning, you provide  development and strategic direction to your team, but you also robustly contribute.
  • You know networks, excited to take the lead on the maintenance and evolution of our network. You love a technical challenge.
  • You thrive in a high paced environment.

What You'll Need:

  • 3+ years IT management experience

  • Proven experience implementing  ITIL v4 processes (required)
  • Dream to work in a dynamic startup, including willingness to adapt Blink’s IT environment to changing business needs.
  • Thrive in the unknown: creatively solve problems with limited input and resources in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment.
  • Talent for prioritizing and balancing the needs of multiple groups of users
  • Flawlessly execute set objectives, with high attention to detail, organization and process.
  • Knowledgeable and comfortable being an escalation point for our different tools/technology
