About the job

You will be accountable for the optimization of inventory, reduction of supply chain lead-time and improved delivery of customer requirements.

The team will focus on translating Product and Customer requirements to a workable operational forecast that will ensure the appropriate signals are provided to ensure optimal delivery of materials, components, logistics, and ensure sufficiency of labor at the data centers.

The organization serves the Data Center Operations and the broader Technical Infrastructure teams. The team will lead the improvement of the Fleet and Operation Planning Process (F&OP) which will create engagement, drive faster decision-making, and ensure the process is integrated across the organization.
