What You’re Like

 

You have a relentless desire to get stuff done. A true champion of the collective objective, you’re energized by applying your expertise with a group of talented people to achieve something important, together. You’re curious and passionate about new technologies and cutting-edge innovation, and you enjoy pulling together complex pieces of a puzzle to deliver a powerful and meaningful end-product. You’re a translator between people and teams that don’t use the same lingo. You don’t settle for short-term gratification—you’re into long-haul, incremental efforts that require endurance, patience and next-level collaboration.


What We’re Like


Surescripts Network Technology and Operations (NT&O) is comprised of smart people who love to work towards a common goal, often delivering an innovative, industry-leading solution to the healthcare marketplace. We pride ourselves on quality work that’s grounded in complete transparency and accountability. When a project goes off the rails—and they do from time to time—we rally around each other to fix it and move on. While our gratification is often the result of a months-long effort, we never tire of delivering a huge result that has an exponentially positive impact on the healthcare system—whether it’s quality, cost or patient safety.

 

OK, But Here’s What It’s Really Like

 

Working at Surescripts NT&O, your thinking cap will always be on. You’ll be challenged to make sure that disparate, cross-functional pieces come together to create a desired result. You might swarm around some work if you think a milestone is about to be missed. You’ll work to quickly understand diverse technologies, and establish and maintain relationships with groups who see and talk about things differently.
