Job Description:


Consumers have come to expect personalized and seamless experiences in nearly all aspects of their daily life - how they stay connected, shop, book travel and manage their finances. Technology innovation has enabled these experiences. Consumers should expect, and will demand, the same personalized experience for managing their health. To meet new competitive challenges, better respond to consumer needs, reduce systemic friction points and to inspire a brighter future for healthcare in America, Humana has created a new business focused on the whole health needs of seniors. Associates in this new business segment (Author by Humana) are creating a customer-back experience designed to foster a trusting relationship with seniors to help them achieve their best health. Author operates independently with a 'startup-like' mentality, and the enthusiastic support and backing of Humana and its board, with the goal of changing the healthcare industry from managing transactions to supporting a member's whole health. We are seeking individuals who are passionate about solving big problems in healthcare for seniors. As a member of the Author team, you will have the opportunity to bring your 'A game' to work every day to improve the lives and health of the seniors we serve.
