Company Description

GoHealth is seeking a dynamic and driven Product Manager capable of guiding our products into the future. This product leader will sit within GoHealth's engineering-focused technology organization and play a central role in defining, articulating, and executing our product vision. While guiding engineering efforts to build high-value products will be a primary responsibility, a successful individual will be equally effective in maintaining a strong sense of our clients' needs and behaviors; GoHealth's strategic direction; the competitive environment; and our industry in order to generate sustainable market leadership.

Job Description

  • Developing GoHealth's product vision by collaborating across the organization to identify key areas of focus to which the application of new products or product enhancements can generate significant business value.

  • Regularly and clearly communicating both high-level product vision and specifics of technical implementation to audiences both inside and outside of our organization.
  • Consulting with internal and external stakeholders on how your products can be used to accomplish business objectives. In cases where a solution would require development, this includes coaching stakeholders towards options that create generalizable, sustainable value for a broad set of related, common applications.
  • Writing and/or evaluating quantitative business cases which are expected to present credible, measurable business hypotheses in defense of specific product investment requests.
  • Participating in ongoing planning of our substantial, but finite, technical investments to balancing specific initiatives within the company's priorities at large, with the objective of ensuring that our operating plan produces the greatest possible business value.
  • Negotiating desirable, measurable business outcomes with key executive stakeholders and then managing design and delivery of products to efficiently capture those outcomes.
  • Collaborating with design professionals to build compelling, measurable user experiences that can be analyzed and optimized with the data they generate.
  • Documenting product definitions and features for both internal and external consumption.
  • Demonstrating product features and enhancements to diverse stakeholders.
  • Documenting and organizing technical debt initiatives to ensure technical sustainability of products.

Job Requirements


  • Bachelor's degree from an accredited (competitive preferred) college or university in fields such as computer science, mathematics, engineering, or other technical disciplines.
  • 3 years preferred working in a technical software role. Comfort in discussing software systems in technical detail is a must.
  • 2 years preferred working in a product and/or technical leadership role in a high growth company.
  • Strong business sense, and an ability to articulate and evaluate business opportunities.
