🎯 What you’ll do

As the new Planning & Systems Associate for our Customer Success teams in the Netherlands, France and Germany, you work on creating a planning process that is as efficient and accurate as possible. By understanding the current set-up of different processes, you can easily flag bottlenecks, and you are not afraid to make changes to the current way of working. With your creative and pragmatic approach you turn these bottlenecks into smoothly running processes. You also love to challenge yourself by mastering the tools you need for planning and by continuously trying to improve your sheets and the planning process. With the data gathered by the forecasting analysts you take a look at the future planning, making sure the team can react to any difficulties in a timely manner. 

You will be based at our Headquarters in Amsterdam, and since you will be working closely together with the teams in Germany and France, a nice added bonus is that you get to visit the offices there every month!
