Product & Business Analyst

Opternative, Chicago

Helping people see better. We’re a technology company with a human touch.


Opternative, the leader in the digital eye care, is seeking an Account Manager with an entrepreneurial spirit and an enthusiasm for healthcare innovation. Opternative has created the most convenient, scientifically accurate and clinically validated alternative to the traditional eye exam. Consumers can now take an online refractive eye exam from anywhere, at any time, and receive a prescription for contacts and glasses from an Opternative physician - all for a fraction of the cost and hassle.

Since launch, Opternative has developed and validated the technology, successfully filed patents, initialized commercialization, and has a proven record of market traction. In the years to come, Opternative’s goal is to use its digital, refractive eye exam as a beachhead for additional eye care products and cloud based services delivered by eye care providers through our platform. We are a committed and intense team building a trusting and diverse environment where agility, hard work, and velocity are key.
