Business Development Intern for Health Tech Startup Preventing Cancer

| Chicago


CancerIQ (http://canceriq.com) is a venture-backed digital health company that uses predictive analytics to help doctors understand their patient's risk of getting cancer and dying from cancer. By making it faster and cheaper for providers to order cancer genetic testing and interpret results, we improve patient access to life-saving services that can pre-empt or prevent this devastating disease. We market our solutions nationwide to cancer centers, breast centers and genetics practices, and have grown 10x since emerging from private beta in Spring 2016.

The Role:

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated business development intern to help us expand our company’s funnel of new prospects. You will generate new business opportunities by following proven processes to prospect potential clients. You’ll learn how to identify and research lists of companies to target, and how to use all the resources available to you to generate new business opportunities. You have to be highly organized, love data, and be extra resourceful.

This internship position would be ideal for someone with a strong interest in B2B sales, technology, or healthcare as a career path. You'll be spending a lot of time talking to healthcare professionals, so by the time we're done with you, you'll feel like a doctor! Successful interns will be invited to work with CancerIQ part time during the school year, or join the team full-time.

  • Cold-call healthcare providers to inquire about current problems and determine if CancerIQ is the right fit


  • Bachelor’s Degree preferred
  • Background in healthcare
  • Proficient in Excel, and CRM Applications
  • Excellent communication skills, especially via email and over the phone
  • Strong organizational and planning skills
  • Prior successful sales and lead qualification a plus
  • Goal-oriented; record of overachievement in previous pursuits
  • High energy and great attitude

Bonus Points:

  • Experience setting up prospecting lists, or working for startup companies
  • Understanding of genetic testing, breast imaging, or oncology markets
  • A background in healthcare writing is ideal, although not necessary.


  • Opportunity to work in the cutting edge field of genetics and genomics
  • Ownership of your projects, contributing meaningful work to the company.
  • Work collaboratively with small teams, gaining hands-on, applicable real world experience.
  • Laid back work environment, conveniently located in River North
  • Become part of a dynamic team of fun, young professionals
  • Member of SalesAssembly, where you will have the opportunity to access training and development opportunities, and connect with other sales professionals in the B2B sales sector in Chicago
  • Automatic admission to our "above average" co-ed beach volleyball team

An Insider's view of CancerIQ

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We all believe in our product and want to see it succeed, which means we're always pushing the boundaries of healthcare and of ourselves. We work fast and encourage each other, so we learn fast. Here you can propose an idea, see it built and launch it, which you don't get at a larger organization. In my first 6 weeks I released a brand new product!

Hilary Mohs

Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I get to sell to people that are excited to hear from me. Our product solves a problem for everyone - including our sales channel partners that I get to interact with and learn from. From drafting proposals & negotiating terms to providing feedback on product & marketing ideas - it's never a dull moment at CancerIQ

Annie Stoik

Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I initially joined to get some practical experience before going to grad school for genetic counseling. While observing workflow and supporting clinical users, I fell in love with CancerIQ's user-centered design process and never wanted to leave. I'm now transitioning to the product team and look forward to a career in product management.

Sadie Freedman

Product Specialist

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to be a product-focused, "apple" of the health tech world that is able to build products that make the most complex concepts in genomics easy to understand and apply in everyday care. Sadly there are few healthcare solutons that are simple, elegant, and informative enough that doctors and patients will actually love

Haibo Lu

VP of Product & Customer Success

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Healthcare data, specifications, and interfaces tend to be archaic and non-standard across healthcare systems. Developing a modern platform that is inter-operable with old systems requires designing and building around inherent complexities through careful domain-driven modeling, flexible micro-services, and sophisticated adapters.
