Initial Buyer

Are you looking for a sourcing job where you can make a real impact? Does the combination of medical devices, product development and start-up culture excite you?

The job

You are responsible for initial buying in (new business) projects, covering the full sourcing process including definition of product specifications (together with the development team), translation thereof in purchasing specifications and especially finding, evaluating, engaging and challenging suppliers. Your scope consists of raw materials, components and outsourced products or services.

Main objective is to establish a supplier base that develops with the product, initially focused on low volumes, co-development, fast iterations and flexibility, gradually moving towards higher volumes, cost-effectiveness, reliability, security of supply and quality.

The combination of our company profile – a product definition company that continuously develops innovative medical devices for minimally invasive surgery –, its size and its culture creates a setting where the only limitation to the impact you can make is your ambition. From a career development perspective, this is a great stepping stone towards a range of more senior (sourcing) functions in a sourcing organization that grows in size and maturity to keep fulfilling the business needs.

Your talents

You master both the engineering and the sourcing domain, in knowledge and experience, but especially in skills. You easily interact with people, are capable to see things from different perspectives and have a talent to connect. You are eager to learn and have the ambition to grow to a senior function in our organization. You are ambitious and have a high level of energy. You always strive for the best and it is your nature to look for continuous improvement.
