  • negotiate and maintain local contracts, purchase orders and master data in SAP

About you

Could you be our future employee?

We are looking for someone with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a relevant area such as logistics/economics/legal/technical. Preferably you already have relevant experience in a procurement environment. You have a commercial mindset and you have affinity with contractual terms. Experience with SAP SRM is giving you a head-start in this role, and knowledge of SAP Ariba is a bonus. Your language skills in German and English are on business level.  
You are a passionate and persuasive person with strong analytical, communication and stakeholder management skills. You bring the commercial part into a technical / multidisciplinary team: you are always looking for the “best commercial deal”, you discuss with legal dept. and vendors about contract terms, and you ensure compliance with the applicable procedures.  You enjoy working independently, have a hands-on mentality and a steep learning curve does not scare you. Last but not least, you are a team player.
