Job Description

What’s your next step? How will you leverage the study, training, certifications and your energy to help develop solutions to transform the health care industry? As an Associate Director at UnitedHealth Group, you can do just that. You’ll lead complex projects that have strategic importance to our mission of helping people lead healthier lives and helping to make the health system work better for everyone. It’s an opportunity to help rewrite the future of UnitedHealth Group as you participate in the development of business strategy.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Manage and execute all phases of Healthcare Economics projects: problem definition, data retrieval, data quality, architect, model building, discovery, advanced statistical analysis, presentation, education, visualization, and implementation

  • Use SAS and advanced statistical techniques to discover insight, to identify value-creating opportunities, to create data-driven clinical, provider network, and product decision making tools, to define risk cohort groups and care interventions, to better understand patterns and risk, and to perform financial due-diligence

  • Generally, the work is project-oriented, self-directed, less structured, and complex

  • Work independently and collaboratively with internal customers to deliver technical solutions that add business value and yield actionable recommendations

  • Candidate will be the lead SAS developer on the team and will provide SAS expertise across all team members

  • Provide analytical, statistical, programming, data management, visualization, and quality control support for a wide variety of projects

  • Independently design and code SAS programs to extract, aggregate, and analyze data from various sources

  • Drive communications with all key stakeholders

  • Improve and extend the analytic methods and capabilities of our current solutions, algorithms, and business processes

  • May supervise the work of subordinate SAS programmers/analysts

Individuals in this role must also demonstrate the following abilities:

  • Expert ability to breakdown and clearly define problems, and then produce innovative and value-creating solutions that improve decision-making

  • Superior client-facing skills: communication, negotiation, interpersonal, and the ability to synthesize complex numerical insights in a straight-forward and enlightening way

  • Demonstrated ability to work in ambiguous situations and have influence across organizational boundaries

  • Able to independently manage multiple tasks with critical deadlines

  • Self-starting, curious, passionate, innovative, confident, strategic, flexible, team-oriented

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

The challenges here are significant. You’ll be part of an intensely driven and focused team that is accountable for constantly improving business results. You’ll be a trusted subject matter expert who’s called on to incorporate programming and advanced statistical expertise into novel, cutting edge business solutions.

Required Qualifications:
  • Bachelor’s degree in statistics, biostatistics, economics, computer science, mathematics, or similar quantitative field of study

  • 8+ years of SAS programming experience demonstrating an advanced/expert level of proficiency

  • 8+ years of hands-on computational problem solving experience in a healthcare environment including, at a minimum, extracting data from large relational databases, understanding medical codes, and working with structured, unstructured, claims, enrollment, and provider data

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s Degree

  •  5+ years of hands-on experience developing solutions using advanced statistical  and visualization techniques (clustering, CARTs, simulation, machine learning, deep learning, text mining, NLP, etc)

  • Associate or Fellow of the Society of Actuaries designation
