Buyer: Procurement Manager

Headquarters: Victoria, Canada


Position Description: Procurement Manager
Buyer is growing incredibly quickly, so as our Procurement Manager you will have a direct and critical impact on the growth of the company. You will succeed in this role if you have a passion for negotiation, and love obtaining true value – it is more than just about the price. Our ideal candidate is comfortable under pressure and understands that the lowest price is not always the best price, and as a result strives to get the best price and terms for our customers.
  • Buy and renew software, negotiate professional service contracts and for tech focused rapid growth companies.

  • Work side-by-side with the Project Managers to ensure customers are satisfied and savings targets are being met. 
  • Work with Buyer’s Product Manager, Founder, and Project Managers to help us improve and evolve our product, service, and processes.
  • Attention to detail is one of your superpowers: it will be your responsibility to intensely examine contracts, proposals, and email threads. 
Environment and Skillset:
As a growing company, it is essential that this role will be filled by someone who:
  • Is a proven doer of things. In your cover letter please provide examples of when you took initiative outside your standard expected tasks that had a wider impact.

  • Has a high level of organization, follow-through, and multi-tasking skills.
  • Is obsessed with detail; you lose sleep if you spell something wrong in an email after hitting send. 
  • Is focused, reliable, and a responsible self-starter that can self-manage with strong critical problem solving skills.
  • Is able to context-switch on a dime. You are well known for being able to think on your feet. You are comfortable juggling competing priorities. 
  • Has experience working in B2B sales and as an account manager with a comprehensive understanding of various pricing models. 
  • Is confident working in Google sheets, docs, Gmail, CRM’s, Slack, and other SaaS tools etc.
