Part-time IT Project Manager

Freedman HealthCare is a Newton, MA consulting firm that specializes in health care claims data, health care performance measurement and improvement, and strengthening the links between public health and health care reform. We help state health organizations and policy makers put data to work to build a more efficient health care system. Freedman HealthCare is an entrepreneurial, fast-paced, and growing consultancy with a culture of teamwork, open communication, and meeting exacting standards.

Freedman HealthCare is looking for an experienced IT project manager and technical professional to fill a long-term role as our IT Project Manager (ITPM) to oversee our IT vendors and contractors. This job will be on a part-time basis of roughly 30 hours a month. The ITPM will assure the delivery of quality IT services and security controls to our staff of 20 healthcare consultants and analysts.

The day-to-day work will involve managing projects that are implemented by our outside IT firm, which is under contract to provide support services for our in-house Windows-based file server, network, and user computers. You will also coordinate the work of assorted freelance security consultants, web developers, and system admins for our AWS cloud servers. Although the majority of work will be online and through various telepresence options, such as Zoom, you will be required to visit our office for occasional meetings or work with our IT service on hardware installations. As a result of this, we seek candidates who reside in the greater Boston area. Some of our work is with clients on data subject to HIPAA. At the request of our clients, this requires us to hire only a US citizen or permanent resident for this position.

While this job requires a strong range of technical experience, the actual work will largely be advising, scheduling, budgeting, communication with our staff and vendors, and recording overall progress and compliance in relation to company policies and applicable regulations.

We are looking for someone with experience in the technical areas listed below, but your direct role for us will be managing technical projects performed by experts in each area. Prior direct experience with HIPAA is desired, but a strong background in cybersecurity will be an acceptable substitute.

 

The work responsibilities of the IT Project Manager will be:

  • IT purchase management
  • IT implementation management
  • Security management
  • Hiring and managing virtual IT team members
  • Internal website development
  • Internal software development

The IT Project Manager should have experience and proven strengths in the following areas:

  • Project management
  • Communication
  • Record keeping
  • Interviewing and hiring
  • Technical trouble shooting

The IT Project Manager should have the following technical skills:

  • AWS web server management
  • Basic PHP or Python programming
  • MySQL database at the SQL query level, not the DBA level
  • Windows and MSFT software management
  • Experience with cyber security compliance

 

This is a part-time contract position, local to our Newton, MA office. To apply for this position, please send resume, cover letter, and salary requirements to Joanne Halpern at hr@freedmanhealthcare.com.
