Your key responsibility will be to design and deploy solution architecture for the chosen technology solution, e.g. Kinaxis, o9, SAP IBP, Blue Yonder, Anaplan etc. facilitating integration of clients legacy systems and advanced planning solution.
Additionally, you will help to enhance the collective firm's knowledge with regard to supply chain technology, contributing to our knowledge base and helping to create new offerings to be deployed to clients. 
Projects may include leading the deployment of supply chain planning solutions for clients, assisting clients with the selection of technology for supply chain planning, stochastic simulation of inventory levels with the objective of creating a robust inventory policy, and conducting diagnostics on supply chain health and performance for our clients.
