Third-Party Partnerships

The role

Abett produces a data-management software product for benefits directors, HR staff, and finance professionals. Our customers range from mid-sized enterprises to firms in the Fortune 50.

A key element of our product is that it connects employers with a large set of third-party service providers. We are looking to hire a business professional to manage those third-party relationships.

Abett is based in Seattle, Washington, but we are a fully distributed (remote) organization. Therefore, you can work from anywhere. This position reports to the Chief Executive Officer, and compensation includes equity options.  

Context and vision

Employers are important consumers of healthcare, as they agree to terms in benefits plans that dictate what care is available, and how much it costs. However, employers have historically been passive consumers of healthcare. Abett helps employers become fierce consumers of HR benefits and healthcare, which we believe will lead to better care and lower costs.

Abett’s business

We use technology to shift power from entrenched vendors to the employers and patients who pay the bills. We accomplish this mission by delivering a SaaS data-management product for employers. It provides four benefits: (1) a centralized “data store” for HR and healthcare data; (2) automated and secure data transfers between vendors; (3) “swappable” APIs to replace vendors as needed; and (4) compliance with complex laws and regulations.

Our problem, or why we are hiring

Third-party service providers are a key constituent of our product. While these third parties are not our customers, per se, their willingness and ability to integrate their technical systems with our platform has a huge influence on our ability to create value for our customers.

In our experience, third-party service providers have different concerns from our customers, and our relationships with third parties are subject to their own dynamics. Consequently, we are looking to hire a business leader to manage and strengthen those relationships, to the benefit of our customers.

An ideal candidate and next steps

We expect an ideal candidate will:

  • Have experience with client-facing business development and building strategic relationships with executive stakeholders.

  • Have familiarity with healthcare data, and the classes of statistical analyses common in the industry.

  • Have an extremely well-developed ability to communicate in writing. Give the distributed nature of Abett’s organization, all of our staff must be very capable at both processing and articulating complex ideas in writing.

  • Understand the benefits and costs of working in a start-up venture

Our hiring criteria is simple: All we care about is if you can solve our problem. If you believe you’re the right person for that job, then we’d love to hear from you about how you’ll do it
