The Solution Director is a vital component to our success and future growth.  This role will be responsible for cross-functional and cross-segment coordination of solutions that will support the C&S health plans in achieving the goals of State Partners (i.e. Medicaid agencies, Dept. of Health and Human Services, etc.) in an innovative, cost effective and outcome driven approach for the populations to be served (i.e., Medicaid, children and adults with special health care needs, foster care, etc.).  As our Policy/Strategic Engagement team focuses on external relationships and preparedness for the procurement, this position will focus on the internal preparation and will be the intersection for internal and external partners.  This position will work directly with Policy/Strategic Engagement, Business Development, Proposal, health plan leaders (i.e. C-suite and other senior leader/decision makers) and functional business owners ensuring that we develop and/or execute upon distinctive solutions that align with our RFP readiness strategies and key priorities in preparation for new Medicaid business proposals.


Preference will be given to candidates able to work in the Minnetonka, MN or Sacramento, CA office.  Candidates not located near one of those locations, will enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges. 



Primary Responsibilities:


  • Partner with Solution Team leadership, Policy/Strategic Engagement, Business Development, Health Plan leaders and key stakeholders across the organization to identify, prioritize, build solutions required for new business proposals
  • Coordinate complex strategies and issues with cross functional expertise, seek solutions and/or inputs from other markets or businesses to address the complex issue, often resulting in the creation of a customized local solution
  • Create key deliverables for internal and external audiences such as workflows and narratives that articulate solution design, prepare our response team for the upcoming RFP, and align with the overarching strategy by leveraging market and competitive intelligence, independent research and analysis of data, organizational resources, stakeholders and business owners
  • Develop critical content for relevant sections of C&S RFP responses, such as complex clinical areas, and contribute to the response team's understanding of our broader market strategy for the development of the overall response
  • Responsible for the planning, coordination, development and facilitation of simultaneous work streams and action plans that drive toward agreed upon design or solution       
  • Lead internal readiness for the proposal in partnership with the Solution Partner, drive accountability and ownership of response team contributions to RFP readiness, but also ensure we have appropriately scoped, prioritized and developed solutions that strengthen broad RFP readiness - spanning operational table stakes performance to distinctive innovations
  • Ensure that the structure is in place for seamless implementations (e.g. documented decisions, simultaneous hand-offs to accountable owners and writers) following the procurement
  • Influence without authority to motivate and inspire collaborative engagement, amid competing priorities of the team members
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the local market and competitive landscape


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.
