Here at Robin, we're passionate and dynamic; driven and forward-thinking. As an official Great Place to Work, we empower and inspire people to do their best work on their own terms. And we innovate. Every. Single. Day.
We're proud of what we do, but we also know that our success relies on you — the talented, bright and independent professionals who bring passion to your work each morning.
So, what do you think - are you a Robin?
Do you have what it takes to be our Supply Chain Analyst?
Read on if you think you do!
How you'll answer, "So what do you do?"
"I ensure the build of the best radars possible by ordering high-quality but well-priced components, at reliable companies."
Mmmm. Not bad.
Here's what a Robin would say:
“Innovation is what Robin does best, and so we’re growing seriously fast! I get a kick out of structuring excellent supply chain processes in order to deliver everything our customers need smoothly, and all at the right time.”
Day-to-day, here's what you'll really do:
With management, you'll define hands-on supply chain strategies for our products, with a primary focus on supplier management. This includes:
- Requirements definition
- Category analysis/strategy
- Critical supplier identification
- RFI/RFQ process
- Contract negotiation & management
You'll execute these strategies and regularly inform management of their status. You’ll be out and about to regularly visit and evaluate suppliers, assessing risks and making sure any issues are addressed.
You'll negotiate and manage contracts with suppliers, being involved from the very beginning to determine the best approach with the R&D team.
You’ll support operations with proactive planning to order the parts needed for prototyping and production strategy.
You'll communicate across the entire organization, reporting directly to the Director of Operations. In particular, you’ll have close contact with the Production Planner, R&D Team, and Sales Managers.
