Sr. Vice President Growth
Cityblock Health is the first tech-driven provider for communities with complex needs—bringing better care to where it’s needed most, block by block. Founded in 2017 on the premise that “health is local” and based in Brooklyn, we are backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.
Our mission is to improve the health of underserved communities. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we meet our members where they are, bringing care into the home and neighborhoods through our community-based care teams and Virtual Care offerings.
In close collaboration with community-based organizations, local providers, and leading health plans, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. Equipped with world-class, custom care delivery technology, we deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services to deliver a radically better experience of care for every member and community we serve.
Over the next year, we’ll grow quickly to bring better care to many more members and their communities. To do this, we need people who, like us, believe that everyone should have good care for what matters to them, in their community.
Our work is grounded in a belief in the power of a diverse community. To close gaps in care and advance equity in the communities we serve, we have to start with making our own team diverse and inclusive. Our ways of working are characterized by creativity, collaboration, and mutual learning that comes from bringing together a community from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to ensure that every person on the Cityblock team, and every Cityblock member, feels supported and included as a part of our community.

About the Role:
Cityblock’s growth team dynamically supports the Cityblock mission including New Business Development, Existing Partner Management, Policy Intelligence, Market Entry Strategy and Developing Business Cases for New Products.
The Senior Vice President - Growth will be a critical team leader, responsible for leading Cityblock’s rapid growth into new markets and expanding existing markets. The role will lead a variety of activities, especially developing and managing executive relationships with potential payer partners, communicating about Cityblock, developing both conceptual and financial structures for new deals to meet the needs of Cityblock and potential partners, gaining a deep understanding of the local market and policy dynamics and working with cross-functional leads at Cityblock to develop a proposal and complete contracting. Most importantly, the role will be responsible for the development and negotiation of risk contracts with new partners. The role will also lead critical strategic considerations for the company, including new products, new markets and refinement of partnership models.
The ideal candidate thrives when sitting at the intersection of commercial opportunities, strategy, financial analysis, and operational domains. Reflecting the significant growth of our organization, the optimal candidate has deep experience and exposure across health plan operations, such as financial management, revenue cycle management, quality analytics and reporting, call center operations, network management, and more. This is not a “sales” business development role - it is a strategic advisor where thought leadership, relationship building, creativity, and sound business acumen are what drive success. Ideal candidate does not need to have deep sales experience, and relevant backgrounds include corporate development, business development, consulting, private equity, strategy, and other managerial roles. This person will connect with other external leaders in ways that they see Cityblock Health as a critical ally and partner in bringing leading care delivery models to serve Medicaid and Medicare patients.
