About this role

Firefly Health is bringing our risk-bearing primary care and health plan products to a growing number of employers around the country. The Vice President, Employer Sales role is a critical role within the Firefly Commercial Team, driving strategic and sustainable growth across our growing book-of-business. This individual will be responsible for leading the development and expansion of our Employer Sales strategy and pipeline at Firefly.

First and foremost, this is a results-driven role. We’re looking for someone with a demonstrated track record of selling to large and jumbo employers. The right candidate understands that employer sales can be complex, and will be able to demonstrate their experience in cultivating relationships with key executive decision-makers within the organization and key influencers (e.g., consultants) external to the organization as well.

We are looking for a strategic and creative contributor who understands that acting as a value-added partner is critical to the sale. We aren’t selling widgets - we’re fundamentally changing the way healthcare is delivered in the U.S. - so clearly demonstrating the ability to consultatively sell will be critical.

The Vice President, Employer Sales should be an execution-focused team player who understands that “we win on the margin”, commanding trust and inspiring confidence both internally and externally; with excellent people skills, a willingness to take smart risks, thinking both strategically and tactically, and maintaining a positive outlook and sense of humor in the face of challenges.

This role will report to the Chief Commercial Officer.

You will:

  • Drive new sales with target employer accounts by developing strategies that drive top of funnel activity and efficiently moving prospects through each stage of the sales funnel to close
  • Understand the network synergy between employers, payers, consultants, and other influencers and harnesses that influence to create leverage in driving deals forward
  • Work cross-functionally internally to identify and solve gaps that will help move deals forward faster
  • Maintain comprehensive knowledge of prospect priorities and key business objectives
  • Work with Firefly’s marketing team to develop service adoption strategies that will lead to high levels of membership attribution and engagement, customized to specific customer populations
  • Maintain and update employer opportunities and track sales activity metrics in our Salesforce CRM

You Have:

  • 15+ years of relevant sales experience, preferably in selling health plan products to employers, or who has a demonstrated track record of selling into HR / Benefits teams
  • Experience closing both large and jumbo employers
  • Experience with complex contract negotiations, claims repricing and network disruption analyses, and ROI / value model development to demonstrate our impact with customers
  • Comfortability working independently
  • Superb project management, organizational and communication skills
  • Strong public speaking skills and a willingness to present in front of large audiences when needed
  • Ability to effectively manage multiple priorities in a fast-paced environment
  • Willingness to travel

Our office is located in Watertown, Massachusetts but we’ve developed a robust remote working structure to give us more flexibility geographically while hiring for many positions.

While this role can be done largely remotely, there are several times a year when staff come together onsite for planning and team building.

We are always looking for valuable talent to add to our growing team. Even if you’re not sure this role is the one for you, don’t let that stop you. We’d love to have a conversation to see where you could fit.

Firefly is an equal opportunity employer. We value diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We're committed to building and sustaining an inclusive workplace culture where individuals are treated with dignity and respect. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need.
