Purchasing and Materials Coordinator

Due to our continued growth, DarkVision is looking for an enthusiastic and driven Purchasing and Materials Coordinator to join our manufacturing operations team. This newly created position will play a critical role in managing the procurement and management of parts and materials used in our advanced ultrasonic imaging tools.

The position requires a talented and keen individual who is customer service oriented, relationship-focused, and highly organized.

  • Manage inventory of electronic and mechanical components, including incoming quality checks and vendor feedback
  • Generate pick lists and assemble (kit) materials for internal and external assembly
  • Assist with shipping logistics, including receiving inventory, shipping equipment to remote teams, and preparing international shipping paperwork
  • Participate in production forecasting and planning
  • Work with engineering on parts obsolescence/substitutions, expedites, ECRs, and risk mitigation strategies

Expectations:

  • 2+ years in procurement roles, ideally in mechanical or electronics manufacturing
  • Knowledge of mechanical and electronics supply chains is an asset
  • Experience with forecasting and demand planning is an asset
  • Strong influencer and change leader
  • Strong customer service orientation
  • Able to build and maintain good relationships with vendors
  • Flexible and adaptable
  • Ability to effectively prioritize and plan work while managing multiple concurrent activities
  • Experience with ERP tools and CPIM certification are considered assets

What’s in it for you?

  • Competitive salary or higher (Top $ for top talent)
  • Full benefits package.
