Own ongoing market performance and support of the materials portfolio, working across the business to drive activities spanning new sales strategies to second sourcing efforts.
Although we list out what we generally look for, we are very likely missing other attributes and skills that you have that could make you a great fit, but are not currently listed. Research has shown this especially applies to women and other marginalized groups, who tend to apply if they check 100% of every box, versus men who apply if they hit roughly 60%.
