In this role, no task is either too small or too big, and you will excel if you can operate as a swiss army knife both within and beyond workforce management operations. You will report to the Director of Care Delivery Operations and will interface with organizational stakeholders including Finance, Data, and People Operations. You will work remotely with the option to work from our Nashville office. This role will not have direct reports to start, but may evolve to include leadership opportunities as our organization grows.
