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.

- 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.
