You want more. You have worked as a Project Manager in a variety of IT environments, but something has been missing. You want to work with teams who focus on people – a healthy Oregon – rather than the financial bottom line.

Do we have your attention?


We are looking for a Senior Project Manager to join our team, someone who is driven to cultivate relationships with our partners and who delivers solutions to help the most needy Oregonians. Could it be you?

This position will lead the OHA/ODHS decision-making process for the detailed requirements, design, testing, training, and start-up operations related to the development and implementation efforts of achieving the long-term goals of the customer agency.


What’s in it for you?

We offer a workplace that balances productivity with enjoyment; promote an atmosphere of mutual respect, dedication, and enthusiasm. You will collaborate in an open office with a team of bright individuals to work with and learn from.

Oregon Health Authority (OHA) values health equity, service excellence, integrity, leadership, partnership, innovation, and transparency. OHA’s health equity definition is “Oregon will have established a health system that creates health equity when all people can reach their full potential and well-being and are not disadvantaged by their race, ethnicity, language, disability, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, social class, intersections among these communities or identities, or other socially determined circumstances. Achieving health equity requires the ongoing collaboration of all regions and sectors of the state, including tribal governments to address: the equitable distribution or redistributing of resources and power; and recognizing, reconciling, and rectifying historical and contemporary injustices.” OHA’s 10 – year goal is to eliminate health equities.
