Project Manager, Professional Services

Who is Candescent Health?
Candescent Health, a Health IT and services company, builds cutting-edge technology and uses best-of breed process engineering practices to transform healthcare delivery, thereby improving patient outcomes and reducing costs. We are expanding across targeted specialties, but our primary focus has been radiology, which is bursting with opportunities for improvement. Radiology is a major part of healthcare today, with over $150 billion on average spent in the U.S. Radiology also touches every major disease category and hospital economic driver, but the delivery model is flawed and primed for change. Candescent Health provides a cloud-based service that enables radiologists and health systems to improve transparency, increase efficiency and create and maintain higher standards of care. We are transforming healthcare by capturing data, developing insights and delivering them at the point of care. Our team is passionate about improving healthcare, starting by becoming THE knowledge engine for radiology delivery.

Who we are:
We strive to deliver exceptional service by hiring driven team players that are intellectually curious, eager to learn and pursue growth and have the stamina to make an impact in our fast-paced environment. Our team is made up of leaders who have successfully built numerous companies in both healthcare and technology, including a leading national, cloud-based radiology services company. We are backed by leading Healthcare technology venture capital firms and industry executives. At Candescent Health, we value high performance teams, and we want to work with people that embody our foundational competencies:

  • Innovative: We believe that re-thinking the status quo is imperative and that new ideas can and should come from everyone on the team.
  • Collaborative: Every interaction, whether with clients or colleagues, should be impactful, respectful and leave them excited to deal with you again.
  • Execution-Oriented and Accountable: The kind of change that is necessary will not come without breaking a few eggs, so we have the courage to be adventurous and try new things, but we also admit when something is not working, own it and do it better the next time.

Who you are:

  • Enthusiastically strive for opportunities to learn, grow, and apply your knowledge
  • Have an entrepreneurial mindset and are not afraid to take smart risks
  • Are a black belt collaborator and communicator – from the simple to complex business concepts, personal and interpersonal matters, with demonstrated emotional intelligence
  • Are innovative and create practical solutions to complex issues
  • Roll up your sleeves, can multi-task, balance competing priorities and follow through to deliver on your own as well as with a small team
  • Are an authentic, nice person with texture, depth and something to say; you are somebody we would want to get stuck in an airport with.
