COTA is seeking a Product Associate to join our Provider Products team.  Today, COTA offers a data product and web-application to oncology providers to measure testing utilization, measure appropriateness of therapy, and validate institutional reporting.  As the oncology industry shifts to not only provide high quality care, but also help reduce the cost of care, COTA is looking to explore opportunities to leverage charge and payment data alongside clinical EHR data.  The Product Associate would lead initial discovery and concepting, proof of concepts, and ultimately go-to-market.  Additionally, the Product Associate would ensure that COTA’s provider products continue to help clinicians and clinician leaders measure and improve the quality of care at their institutions.  This is a unique opportunity for anyone looking to break into product management or continue growing his or her product management skill set.  This role would provide exposure through the entire product lifecycle – discovery, concept, design, launch, testing, and scaling.
