We think setting up clearly defined responsibilities is key, as well as ensuring effective communication across teams. As you have been in the trenches before you have a clear vision on what we should do first, and last, sharing your best practices from other (tech) scale-ups. 
The VP of Operations is end responsible for the Supply Chain, Customer Success and HR team that has our Director of Supply Chain, Director of Customer Success and Head of People as direct reports.

    • Together with your reports, turn the world’s largest manufacturing network also into the world’s most reliable;
    • Advise the founders on scaling challenges.

What it takes:

    • M.Sc. degree in Management, Business, Supply Chain or any related field;
    • 15+ years of experience, preferably in technology or manufacturing organizations;
    • Broad experience in operational leadership of an international and complex organization;
    • A very organized way of working  with proven experience in creating and leading a culture of organization, process, and attention to detail;
