S3S is looking for a Purchasing Manager

Who are we?

S3S builds custom-made servers and storage solutions for cloud services providers, software development businesses and other data-rich companies. By making sure their servers always run smoothly, we help these companies focus on their core business.

Who are we looking for?

S3S just keeps on growing – and we’d like to keep it that way in the future. Do you want to help us make this happen? You might just be our ideal Purchasing Manager if you:

  • get a kick out of getting the best deals and conditions from suppliers,
  • like exploring multiple vendor sources,
  • like chasing suppliers on the negotiated shipment dates,
  • like working in a B2B environment,
  • are fluent in Dutch and English.

It’s an advantage if you have prior knowledge about servers, computers, and their components. But don’t worry, you don’t need a lot of prior knowledge as long as you are eager to learn.

What will you do?

As a Purchase Manager you will:

  • be responsible for a series of products,
  • focus on building long-term partnerships with suppliers and maintaining them,
  • keep product records up-to-date,
  • play an important part in our purchase process, from order to delivery, guaranteeing the best possible conditions.
  • proactively foresee and attend to issues regarding the purchase order flow,
  • chase and enforce promised lead times,
  • analyze, forecast, and adapt needed stock levels accordingly.
  • explore and monitor the supplier landscape for alternative sourcing channels,
  • gather insights about product market trends,
  • actively follow new developments and generations on the server and storage market,
  • have the opportunity to learn about new technologies and develop your skills, through supplier events or trade fairs.
  • work together with other Purchase Managers and report to the Teamlead Purchase Manager.

What do we have to offer you?

  • A permanent full time job at a growing tech company, with lots of opportunities for learning and development.
  • A dynamic work environment and a close-knit team.
  • An attractive salary package including lots of extra benefits.
  • A company fitness center with a personal trainer.
