Our team includes startup veterans, physicians, and more. We're here to make a big, meaningful impact on healthcare and have fun while we're at it. We're looking for smart, mission-driven, goal-oriented team members who are creative problem solvers and big dreamers. If that sounds like you, let's talk!

About the Role

We are seeking a product operations manager to grow our product and service offerings as well as build the operations to support those offerings. Reporting to the Director of Clinical Operations, your focus as an individual contributor will be to work collaboratively and cross-functionally to build effective products and services, and their respective supporting operations, to support our vision of improving healthcare of America’s seniors. We will be leaning on you to help define what we build and how best to operationalize the processes to deliver those products and services. Therefore, you'll drive value for Tembo and its customers through effective & impact-oriented decisions for our products and operations.


  • Own the product lifecycle. You will be responsible for the development, roll out, and maintenance of our product and service lines. You will help define and prioritize requirements for new product and service lines. We’ll be relying on you to provide timelines, manage to key deliverables, and ensure our products achieve our desired outcomes. From end-to-end, you’ll have to think of how to build and support these products throughout the product lifecycle and customer journey, including training, support, and monitoring what you own.

  • Manage operations of our products. You will have to think about and build the processes and workflows so that your product will be successful. This may include coordinating and executing aspects of patient care as well as ensuring that clinicians are providing quality, evidence-based care through your product. This role will also continually iterate on these processes to remain effective as we grow, scale, and pivot to achieve our business and clinical objectives.

  • Represent the voice of the customer. We want you to be the voice of internal and external customers. To effectively prioritize what and how we build, you’ll research and synthesize feedback and learnings to ensure we meet our customers’ and patients’ needs as well as develop the metrics and tools to track if we are successful in meeting those needs.

  • Partner with teams and customers. You’ll work with stakeholders and subject matter experts to execute on your responsibilities. Your role will require aligning everyone to your strategy and ensure transparency in its progress. These stakeholders include engineering, customer success, sales, and our clinical team, all of which will require leading thoughtful discussions, guiding strategic prioritization, driving accountability, and improving cross-functional collaboration.  

  • Develop tools that improve the work of all team members. You'll leverage Google Suite and other tools to directly build tools and materials that will help the team with things like calculating and communicating the impact of Tembo to clients. You'll design and implement workflows to improve the experience of nursing home staff, patients and clinicians.
