Vice President of Marketing

Seattle, WA
 

Our Company

C-SATS is one of the most innovative and fastest growing healthcare technology companies in the Northwest.  A venture-backed spin-out from the University of Washington, C-SATS is used in hospital operating rooms and the front-line of patient care to ensure practitioners do their jobs well and to the highest level of quality.  The company is seeing tremendous traction in the market and is looking to double revenue and headcount in 2017.

We are seeking an experienced, self-motivated, and results-oriented Vice President of Marketing to help us realize our vision of excellence everywhere – everyone, every day, every way.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

Our customers are some of the largest hospitals in the U.S.  Every day their doctors upload video of their work product, most often surgical procedures, into our system.  We use a unique combination of technology and distributed panels of reviewers to appraise the procedures and return the results in compelling, informative and engaging data visualizations.

As part of the C-SATS leadership team, you will work closely with our CEO and other executives to design, implement and lead our strategic and tactical outreach to customers and users.  

  • You will partner with our product design and sales teams to understand our target customers and users deeply through research activities, creating customer profiles, scenarios and segments, and by observing behaviors via online surveying, focus groups and similar methodologies.  
  • You will lead efforts to develop the overall marketing strategy, including product positioning and voice of the customer.  You will develop product-specific positioning and messaging that differentiates C-SATS and our products in the market, and translate product features and functionality into crisp, powerful benefits.  
  • You will communicate the value proposition of the products to the sales and engagement teams as the customer-facing product-based subject matter expert and help develop the tools that support the selling process for the products.  
  • You will be the expert on C-SATS’ vertical markets, competition, buyers and how they buy.  You will continue to refine our go to market strategy, considering new models to attract and retain new partners and customer segments.  
  • You will also execute the strategy via social media, SEO/SEM, advertising, PR, trade shows, partnerships and other tactics effective in healthcare.  
  • You will be responsible for developing and promoting the C-SATS brand, ideally leveraging our growing network of users to grow earned media and C-SATS evangelists.  

As the Company grows, you will build and lead a team to accelerate our marketing and brand-building efforts.

 

Why This Matters

You will be responsible for a critical part of C-SATS, and your work will have a direct impact on patient safety.  C-SATS measures technical skills in healthcare practitioners, skills that directly impact clinical outcomes; poor performers generate 3x more complications and 5x more deaths than top performers.  Our system generates 10x the amount of information about an individuals’ skills in 1/10th the time of traditional peer review.  Major medical centers have completed over two million assessments with C-SATS, and they depend on our system to ensure the quality of their practitioners and the safety of their
patients.
