Test Lead–Digital Health

About the Position

Digital Health Organization Overview

Technology continues to transform every aspect of society, including healthcare. Lilly sees digital as an extension of our medicines, not just a marketing tactic. We, as consumers, have come to expect digital experiences to augment and support our experiences with medicines – especially to help reduce the burden of coping and managing through chronic disease for us, our loved ones and health care providers. Hence, Lilly’s Digital Health team is committed to exploring how the next generation therapeutic ecosystems, connected solutions, and data analytics can transform the customer (patients, health care providers and payers) experience, demonstrate value, and most importantly – improve patient outcomes.

Primary Purpose

The Test Lead is part of the Software Development team with the Digital Health organization. This position will create and drive the testing strategy and processes to ensure optimal performance of Lilly’s Digital Health platforms. Because Lilly’s products directly impact the health of our customers, the testing role is a critical part of delivering high quality and reliable digital products. The Test Lead will proactively implement solutions to address testing challenges and maintain quality in sync with the evolution of the Digital Health systems, drive buy-in and adoption of principles and proposals, and oversee the creation of methods and output. This position will report to the Software Development Advisor.
