The role

We are now looking for a self-driven and precise Supply Chain Specialist to join the Simucube team! In this role, you will play a key role in ensuring that our supply chain and purchases run smoothly and meet the targets in quality and delivery times.

This role allows you to grow as a purchasing or supply chain professional and shape your career path according to your strengths and interests. When joining the company, your daily tasks include planning and optimizing purchases and overseeing the overall supply process from order to shipment to billing and customer service. You will create purchase orders for both our Simucube Store and our product manufacturing, which means collaboration with our suppliers, outsourced production, and other stakeholders.

Once you get more familiar with us and our business, you will take on more responsibilities, e.g., price negotiations and evaluating opportunities to make business savings and manage and strengthen relationships with different stakeholders. Together with the sales and development teams, you create production plans and evaluate future purchasing needs.

As we are constantly looking for ways to develop our processes, your input in optimizing the purchasing processes and systems will be invaluable in the future. We aim at creating sustainable and responsible products, and you will also play a significant role in evaluating the environmental and societal impacts of our supply chain. You will work in close collaboration with our Sourcing & Purchasing Manager, Tommi, and of course, the whole Granite Devices team is there to support you.

What we would like to see

  • A few years of relevant experience in international purchasing or supply chain coordination in the field of technology
  • A holistic understanding of business principles
  • Technical background or interest in technology and electronics
  • Excellent cross-cultural communication and negotiation skills in English – other language skills are a plus
  • Independent and organized way of working
  • Ability to identify and communicate both opportunities and problems
  • Familiarity with logistics and purchasing contracts is an advantage

Above all, we are looking for a person who has an eye for details and a growth mindset and is enthusiastic about ensuring the company’s future success.

Does this sound like the next step in your career? We would love to hear from you, so submit your application by December 6! If you have any questions about the role, don't hesitate to contact us at tiina.knight@granitedevices.com!
