Lilly Digital Product Associate in Indianapolis, Indiana

At Lilly, we unite caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We are a global healthcare leader headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our 35,000 employees around the world work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We give our best effort to our work, and we put people first. We’re looking for people who are determined to make life better for people around the world.

Digital Health Organization Overview:

Technology continues to transform every aspect of society, including healthcare. Lilly sees digital as an extension of our medicines, not just a marketing tactic. We, as consumers, have come to expect digital experiences to augment and support our experiences with medicines – especially to help reduce the burden of coping and managing through chronic disease for us, our loved ones and health care providers. Hence, Lilly’s Digital Health team is committed to exploring how the next generation therapeutic ecosystems, connected solutions, and data analytics can transform the customer (patients, health care providers and payers) experience, demonstrate value, and most importantly – improve patient outcomes.

Primary Purpose

The Digital Product team is responsible for defining, driving and maximizing the value of the digital products with support from the design and development team. The Product Manager will work closely with the Associate Directors of Product Management to prioritize and refine feature ideas from concept though execution, gaining alignment and resolving conflicts from their respective therapeutic area’s commercial, medical and clinical teams, and other stakeholders as appropriate with an eye towards the consumer experience. Product Managers will take an iterative approach to develop and refine the product utilizing consumer feedback and business drivers and will develop and maintain a multigenerational product roadmap. Product Managers will establish a culture of customer mindset, design thinking, hypothesis generation, experimentation and validation. In addition to working alongside other Product Managers and colleagues, the Digital Product Manager will also collaborate with a variety of DH teams (e.g., design, development, operations, and solution architecture) to prioritize and define the digital product backlog as required in order to meet the needs of our consumers. Having a Product Manager with a higher perspective ensures teams maintain a cohesive vision despite the flexible and often fast-paced nature of agile product development.
