Here at Crisp, we value the strength in teamwork, and strongly believe that it’s the key to Crisp’s success. By bringing together bright, motivated creators, wherever they live and work, we are leveraging humanity’s diversity of experience and background in order to understand the challenges facing our food supply, and solve them together. Come join us, and help build the type of business you’d like to be a part of.

We are a socially conscious, distributed team. We give you the opportunity to solve challenges in the global food industry while living where you’re most comfortable and working in areas where you can help foster and grow the community that you are a part of.

We believe in transparency, diversity, merit and fostering a culture of empowerment, personal impact and career growth.  As the Advising Director of Supply Chain you will be both internally and externally facing. Externally, you will engage with Crisp customers by analyzing their supply chains and how Crisp technology can help them run their businesses more efficiently. Internally, you will work closely with Product and Engineering, leveraging industry knowledge and customer feedback to determine what we should build.

We do not have strict requirements to exactly the role you have / have had in the past, but we will certainly not hold it against you if you have been a Product Manager, a Project Manager or even a Software Engineer.

This is an evolving role, currently reporting directly to the CTO with ample opportunity for growth if you play to your strengths. Whether you are coming from a startup or corporate background, you appreciate how much impact there is to be had in smaller organizations and you relish the ability to shape your own role and the future of the company.

Crisp’s Advisory Director of Supply Chain Management

  • You think well on your feet and spot opportunity. Crisp works with small and large food companies and you understand that organizations of different supply chain maturity levels have different needs and challenges, be it people, process or technology. We are not looking to solve "everything" for our customers and shy away from overly complex solutions that can take years to roll out. Having worked with different companies and technologies, you have a knack for spotting the challenges that are worth solving when your are engaging with a new customer.
  • Deep supply chain knowledge, pragmatic thinker and communicator. You know the details of supply chain principles, techniques and methodologies. You can also level with customers and stakeholders by speaking their language and nudging them to rethink how they perceive the challenges that their companies are facing.
  • Technically savvy. You are not a software developer, but having worked with software platforms for years, you have developed a strong intuition for how technology can be applied. This means you have become very good at at assessing whether a customer problem can be solved with existing technology, could be accommodated with minor updates or would require major changes. You can also usually tell if taking the problem on would make sense from a product platform perspective.
  • You see the bigger picture of how people, process and technology work together. You enjoy working with a team that enjoys solving hard technical problems, but you also appreciate how that technology needs to be loved by users to truly reach its full potential.

We are building a team of customer success people with a breadth of combined experiences so that we can collaboratively enable our customers to be successful. There are no hard requirements on specific background, experience or geographical location. Instead we’re looking for individuals that are capable, reliable, and hoping to grow along with us. Do you have strengths you can share? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
