Strategic Operations Associate at Empassion

Empassion is one of the most impactful and exciting start ups in health care. We are focused on improving the experience and lowering costs for seniors at end of life. Specifically, we provide palliative and hospice care for seniors with serious illness and high risk of an over-medicalized death. This population is highly neglected in the current market.


Empassion clients are payers and risk-bearing entities and we work with community palliative and hospice partners to deliver superior outcomes. We are live today across 44 states and growing rapidly.

About the Role:

As a Strategic Operations Associate, you will play a critical role in enhancing internal operations and creating new processes as we deepen and grow new customer relationships. You will join a fast-paced, nimble team of operators who are focused on improving the lives of seniors with serious illness. 

You like to get stuff done! You will execute on complex project plans and collaborate cross-functionally with colleagues on Growth, Network, Data & Analytics and Product/Technology to optimize workflows. You will also work closely with Empassion customers to drive partnership success and patient impact. You will proactively identify opportunities for operational improvement and drive changes end-to-end.

The Strategic Operations Associate will report directly to the Sr. Manager of Strategic Operations and Growth. 

Empassion is a remote company, fully distributed across the United States. We prioritize asynchronous work and communication but are quick to get on a call, Zoom, or even flight if the situation requires higher fidelity discussion.

We do not accept anything less than respectful, supportive, and growth-oriented teammates.
