Optum combines data, technology, and expertise to power modern health care. The Data & Advanced Analytic Tools Consulting team drives the adoption and use of technology solutions by managing, growing and developing relationships with research, scientific, and commercial leaders at life sciences companies through the use of Optum's data assets and technology applications.

Optum's industry-leading data assets include clinically-robust Electronic Health Record (EHR) data spanning the care continuum (from the legacy Humedica business), eligibility-controlled affiliate and non-affiliate insurance claims data, a new class of deterministically-linked Integrated EHR and claims data, and linked profile data including socio-economic information and health risk assessments (HRAs). Optum's data assets enable our clients to enrich their view of the patient and the patient journey through the healthcare system, serving needs across a spectrum of functional areas including real world evidence, health economics and outcomes research, safety and surveillance, epidemiology, and product commercialization.


Optum's advanced analytic tools empower our clients to harness intelligence from these data assets with scale. Our wealth of data and tool solutions, combined with our industry expertise, is uncovering novel insights and driving real world change.


We're now looking for a dynamic Senior Consultant to support Data & Advanced Analytic Tools, working closely with our clients across the industry.

You'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges. 

Primary Responsibilities:
  • Evaluate data to support and develop client relationships: listen, understand, and articulate client needs
  • Collaborate to solve unique and complex problems with impact spanning from team operations to business needs
  • Implement solutions that meet client needs
  • Partner with internal team members on cross functional client engagements
  • Work across teams to create use case studies and business proposals
  • Participate in the development of business strategy for assigned client accounts
  • Predict emerging client analytics needs and participate in the development of innovative solutions to meet those needs
  • Interact with other departments, such as sales, operations and others, to ensure high levels of client satisfaction through successful execution of data licenses and use of applications and data
  • Work in a cohesive partnership with Directors of Data Engagement on assigned key clients and collaborate with other teams within the Optum family
You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
