Why MolinaProfessional development -- at Molina we support your professional development, and you'll learn new technologies and processes. Our team is small, and we all wear multiple hats, so we cross-train everyone. We also reward performance and offer strong performers the opportunity to explore areas beyond their job description. Your success in this role could set you up to pursue multiple opportunities within our organization, particularly if you are open to relocation.
Support and autonomy -- you'll spend three days at our corporate offices in Long Beach, California, learning about our company and our markets. You'll enjoy the support you need to succeed but, once you're up to speed, you'll enjoy the autonomy to take ownership of your responsibilities, managing day-to-day tasks with little oversight.
Variety -- there always is lots going on, so we can promise you'll never be bored. You'll work with a wide range of levels and titles, technical and non-technical people, and our external customer. There will be new technologies to learn, interesting problems to solve, projects to work on . . . no two days will be exactly the same.
Help those who need it most -- Molina Healthcare provides services for members receiving Medicaid or Medicare, as well as other government services. We enjoy working with diverse populations and promoting diversity company-wide. You will use your talents to support an organization that serves people who have greater needs, and you can feel proud about the difference you will make in their lives.
High-performance company -- since our founding in 1980 we have grown from a single health clinic to a multi-state industry leader. We continue to post strong numbers; our 2011 premium revenues were $4.6 billion, up 15% over 2010, while annual cash flow from operations was 40% higher than in 2010, at $225.4 million. Guidance for 2012 is set at $5.8 billion in premium revenue.

For example, we provide two paid days off annually for employees to perform volunteer work at the charity of their choice, tuition reimbursement for those continuing their education, and more.
Keys to SuccessYour technical knowledge will be essential, of course, but just as important will be the interpersonal skills to interact effectively with Developers and others.

You also will need to be able to manage multiple activities and priorities.
We have a solid team in place, and we're looking for someone who can integrate well, add value, and support our collaborative, service-oriented approach.
