Mirvie is shaping the future of pregnancy health by predicting unexpected complications before they happen for the well-being of millions of moms and babies. Complications such as preterm birth, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes, affect 1 in 5 pregnancies, with large economic costs and lifelong health consequences for mom and baby. Our ground-breaking RNA platform is first to predict unexpected complications months before symptoms appear by revealing the underlying biology of each pregnancy. This breakthrough opens a new window into pregnancy health, allowing women to act and their doctors to intervene before unexpected complications become a crisis. Detection of early disease, at the individual level, also promises more equitable care than the use of broad sociodemographic factors that often result in bias. The idea for Mirvie was sparked by the personal experience of one of the founders whose daughter was born prematurely. Our team of world-class scientists and entrepreneurs has brought to market category-first, noninvasive tests used by millions. As a women’s health organization, Mirvie’s team shares a common purpose: to create a world where every pregnancy is as healthy as possible for both mom and baby. The company is headquartered in South San Francisco, California.Position Summary:The Program Manager is primarily responsible for coordinating our efforts behind and delivering on our needs to manage resource and project prioritization. The Program Manager will scale existing operations and supporting technology to support research, clinical development, and the launch of new products.

  • 5+ years of relevant experience (e.g. project/program leadership), ideally in healthcare

  • Skilled at installing and overseeing development cycles, cascaded OKRs, phase-gated project reviews, documentation/task management systems, and other aspects of a successful PMO
  • Keen on cross-team coordination, prioritization, building buy-in, and gaining consensus across teams as varied as R&D, software, data science, commercial, clinical operations, and product
  • Experience configuring or administering enterprise software systems (e.g. CRMs, LIMS)
  • Experience and interest in building out successful teams, but satisfied and capable of being a hands-on and nimble individual contributor as we grow
