Lumere builds solutions that enable health systems to eliminate unwarranted clinical variation and cut unnecessary costs.

We are guided by our Core Values

  1. Seek the frontier - Whatever your role, we are inspired by those who blaze trails and challenge the status quo.
  2. Obsess about impact - It’s our responsibility to bring bold innovation that leads to enduring change in healthcare.
  3. Do your best work - We seek individuals who care deeply about learning and teaching, and high performers who are even more self-aware.
  4. Welcome respectful debate - Our best ideas have come from active collaboration, are often based on limited information, and can contradict personal experience.
  5. Succeed, as one team - We have a single purpose and motivate each other to achieve it.

What you will be doing:

Lumere Solution Advisors are responsible for ensuring that Lumere’s clients, health systems, are successful in reducing unnecessary variation in care and cost.

The successful candidate will be an experienced consultant to hospital strategic sourcing teams (or a forward-thinking strategic sourcing leader) who has a track record of successfully managing complex, multi-stakeholder service line and supply chain initiatives. This person is passionate about tackling difficult problems in healthcare and is excited by the ambiguity and opportunity that comes with working in a dynamic, fast-growing technology company.

    • Serve as a coordinator of people resources within Lumere to ensure clients’ needs are being met
    • Develop scalable content resources as needed (e.g., PowerPoint presentations, best practice recommendations, other guides and tools for the client)
    • Work with internal operational leaders to determine how we will quantify and measure value delivered to our clients
    • Scale your expertise by hiring and managing a team of Solutions Associates
  • Partner directly with Product Managers to translate customers’ needs to our product roadmap
    • Provide feedback on the product pipeline based on client feedback and your expertise in medical device supply chain processes and clinician engagement best practices
    • Serve as liaison between the Product team and client-facing employees to build coordinated roll-out plans for product updates and launches
    • Adapt support model based on new product features
  • Contribute to marketing strategy and content production
    • Advise on marketing campaign themes and strategy using knowledge of health system priorities and challenges
    • Develop content (whitepapers, blog posts, videos) for current and prospective clients (~1 per quarter)
    • Attend conferences to bolster Lumere’s market presence and stay informed of industry best practices (1-2 per year)


  • 7+ years of experience as an external consultant or hospital-based leader for strategic sourcing with expertise in forward-thinking best practices (consulting experience preferred)
  • Excellent project management skills and ability to collaborate across multiple internal and external stakeholders
  • Ability to quickly identify underlying drivers of problems, quickly develop hypotheses, and execute on a path to solve
  • A strong influencer, able to communicate complicated ideas to senior leaders in health system
  • Growth company DNA -- ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced startup environment
  • Ability to travel to client sites as necessary (20-30% travel)

    An Insider's view of Lumere

    What are some social events your company does?

    Lumere sponsors an annual event known as the Bleacher Bash where employees take the afternoon off to cheer on the Chicago Cubs from the outfield bleachers of Wrigley Field. After the game we head to a nearby karaoke bar for a night of singing and team bonding. I've helped with planning and take great pride in contributing to the culture at Lumere.


    Category Advisor

    How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

    We collaborate with Product, Research and Data Ops to update our analytics services to handle a specific subset of medical device data. Our Ops teams get the data, our medical research teams teach us how to interpret it, and our product teams hammer out the UI and task breakdown. It’s complicated and interdependent, which makes it satisfying work.


    Junior Software Engineer

    What is your vision for the company?

    In addition to helping our customers push the frontiers of evidence-based medicine, we want to be one of the best places in Chicago for technologists to hone their craft. We think the best way to do that is to build a great team that's as excited about advancing our technology as our mission in healthcare.
