AT A GLANCE

At RVO Health, we are building an industry-leading healthcare platform that will integrate the consumer health journey and help consumers access the right information, care, products, and services at the right time, bringing differentiated value to the lives of millions of people.  
 
RVO Health is a new joint venture formed via a partnership between Red Ventures, one of the world’s premier digital and consumer analytics companies, and Optum, one of the largest healthcare providers in the world. 

As the Senior Vice President of Digital Product, you will be responsible for advancing RVOH’s consumer-first digital health platform, Optum Now. You will play the role of Product Evangelist externally and will be the internal face of the portfolio. We are looking for a leader who will develop a deep understanding of the business strategy and translate market trends and customer needs into a Product Strategy that ensures business growth and revenue goals are achieved. 

Where You’ll Be

To prioritize togetherness, culture, and accountability, RVO Health operates on a hybrid in-office work schedule. We expect employees to work from our Minneapolis office Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week. You are welcome to work remotely Mondays and Fridays if you wish.
