Business Development Lead

Sitka brings specialty expertise to doctors and patients in a way they understand, in a setting they control and on devices they already carry with them.  Doctors gain rapid, on-demand access to our network of specialists through our unique technology platform.  Patients receive personalized reviews of their medical data with our experts providing empathetic guidance through life-changing medical events.  Patients love it, doctors love it, even insurers love it.

Software and medicine have traditionally not gotten along. Building software to replicate centuries old medical workflows isn’t fun and, more importantly, isn’t what the industry needs. Sitka is founded on the premise that meaningful improvement in medicine requires new systems enabling convenient, conversational workflows, not the tedious and documentation-heavy processes of the past.  The current systems don’t work for anyone, so it’s time for something radically different.

As a small startup, there are no big-company cog-in-the-machine roles. Everything and everyone matters, so we hire with that in mind. We value diversity, not just because building services for diverse populations requires a diverse team, but because we personally feel it's the right thing to do.

About the job

  • Own the creation of partnerships, from the pipeline to nurturing, to proposal and to close.  
  • Develop marketing materials, attend relevant conferences and travel to represent Sitka and develop partnerships.
  • Work with our clinical, product, and implementation teams to build partnerships that allow for scalability of our product.
  • As the first dedicated Partnerships Lead, you will be a critical member of the team, with your work directly affecting the success or failure of the company.
  • The scope of your potential impact is limited only by your ambition and ability to get things done.


  • You’re excited to represent our product and company.  
  • You like working with clients to understand the nuances to a successful partnership.
  • You've partnered with product and clinical teams to create comprehensive implementation plans.
  • You understand the healthcare delivery system and stay up to date on industry news.
  • You like learning new things, teaching what you know to others and generally aren’t a jerk about it.
  • You’re capable of solving whole problems with lots of ambiguity. We’re a startup doing things that nobody has done before. This means building things with imperfect information and building for adaptation when your assumptions are wrong. It’s not for everyone.

Extra credit!

  • You have 5+ years of experience building partnerships
  • You’ve worked at an early stage technology company
  • You are known and respected in the healthcare industry
