You are passionate about empowering all people with chronic conditions to live healthier and better lives.

We are looking for someone to take on a highly visible role on a team that manages our Tier 1 suppliers with responsibility to manage and optimize total supplier operations.  Your approach to optimizing total value by balancing aspects of supplier quality, service level performance, delivery, cost, lead-times, and risk mitigation for a growing business will provide a huge impact on the client and member experience while contributing to the bottom line.  The role will entail both creating new and optimizing current processes across multiple supplier sites that allow for unparalleled scale, flexibility and quality of output.  You will have the opportunity to interact across multiple functions within the Teladoc Health organization, primarily collaborating with teams like Marketing, Product, Finance, and Quality.
