  • Develop and execute procurement workflows and strategies (e.g. establishment of the source to pay process)
  • Track key functional metrics and analyze actual spendings in order to leverage company growth for better terms and improved efficiency
  • Recommend product and process innovations e.g. based on improved technology
  • Implementation of procurement catalogs including software, hardware, etc.
  • Help to develop a growth-focused company culture while being efficient on indirect spendings in order to fuel further growth

  • You want to work in an environment where you can make a difference while being perceived as a real partner of the business who mainly enables future company growth from a procurement perspective

  • You impress with your positive attitude, act as a motivator and convince with your “can do” mentality
