Job Description:

Careers that Change Lives

Together, we can change healthcare worldwide. At Medtronic, we push the limits of what technology can do to help alleviate pain, restore health and extend life. We challenge ourselves and each other to make tomorrow better than yesterday. It is what makes this an exciting and rewarding place to be.

At Medtronic we seek out and hire a diverse workforce at every level: We need fresh ideas and inclusive insights to continue to be an innovative industry leader - that's why we make it a point to seek out, attract and develop employees who are patient-centric, passionate, and who represent the same wide variety of life experiences as our patients.

We are currently seeking a Supply Chain Planner for our Patient Monitoring group. This will be a hybrid opportunity for someone living within North America who lives commuting distance from a Medtronic site. The ideal candidate will have a passion for the patients we serve and an unrelenting desire to improve our business by driving supply chain solutions.

This position is an exciting and new opportunity to work with Medtronic's Patient Monitoring, Respiratory Interventions and/or Medical Care Management Systems businesses. Currently a part of Medtronic, these businesses are being transitioned either into a new stand-alone company (currently referred to as NewCo) or will be merged into the business of another company. While you will start your employment with Medtronic, upon establishment of NewCo or upon the transition of the business unit to another company, in approximately 12-15 months (if we can designate timing; this was in the public announcement) your employment will transfer to one of these entities and you will no longer be employed by Medtronic.

The business will have the same singular focus, financial commitment, deep domain expertise, and global footprint needed to accelerate the development and commercialization of affordable and scalable healthcare technologies.

Help bring the next generation of life-changing medical technology to patients worldwide.

We reward you in the ways that matter most to you. We offer a wide range of benefits and rewards programs to recognize the important role you play in our Mission to transform healthcare. To learn more, we invite you to visit Medtronic Benefits
