Full-time

At Bodyport, we are on a mission to eliminate the leading cause of death worldwide - heart disease. We are bridging the gap between hospital grade medical devices and the health tools presently available in the home. Our first product uses a novel sensor technology to rapidly screen for the major risk factors of heart disease in under fifteen seconds. The clinical grade data measured by our system fuels algorithms aimed at predicting and preventing the onset of cardiovascular disease.

By joining us as the Head of Manufacturing and Supply Chain, you will be responsible for creating a robust supply chain for our lifesaving medical technology. You will also work closely with our engineering and product teams to develop and refine our product requirements based on manufacturing and supply chain constraints. Ultimately, you will help us put the Bodyport technology in every home.
