Product Design Manager

Full-Time Remote Closes: 2024-07-31

Who are we
Henry Schein One is the world’s leading dental practice management software company, offering the market leading platforms EXACT and Dentally.

Whilst we’re part of the ever-growing $600M Henry Schein Group, it’s important to note that we’re a modern product-focused SaaS company, not a large corporate.

How we work
