  • You’ll work with sourcers to resolve supply issues and you’ll manage our supply and demand tracking.
  • You’ll support the second source phase in schedule simulation to minimize the shortage situation.

What you'll bring:

  • You have at least two years of experience in procurement or manufacturing in a related field, preferably within a fast-paced company with a focus on Research & Development and production.
