Senior Project Lead

Job description

Our company

Bluecrux is a team of 100+ business consultants with a passion for supply chain & operations. We believe in personal commitment, customer focus and simply “going for it”. And we’re growing fast, so we want to keep the wheel turning. 

By joining bluecrux, you will work within a broad range of industries – including life sciences, food & beverages, chemicals, manufacturing and service logistics. 

To support our customers in their digital transformation, we’ve developed LightsOutPlanning (LOP), a cloud-based augmented planning technology focused on driving digital supply chain business decision. Being part of a bigger supply chain technology company, LOP offers a highly entrepreneurial environment. You can have a real impact, while enjoying the support of a broader supply chain team. In short, the best of both worlds. 

LOP caused quite a stir in the market – and a bit of a short-circuit with us internally. Which is why we’re on the lookout for a senior business consultant to keep the lights on for our small and dedicated LOP team.

  • You make sure to align everybody when it comes to delays and re-schedules. 
  • You carry the full accountability for the delivery of a final, customer-fitted model in LOP that generates added value for the client. 


Your skills 

  • You’re a tech-savvy owner of a university degree in engineering (industrial, civil, etc.).  
  • You have at least 8 years of experience in supply chain & operations.  You’re familiar with systems of record & advanced planning systems You have a strong affinity with IT-systems and data. Preferably, you have project management or consultancy experience in one of these fields.

  • You’re fluent in English, as well as French or Dutch.  
  • You’re a problem solver with a razor-sharp analytical mind. You are able to work and thrive in a fast-paced environment. 
  • You have the ability to quickly build up excellent product knowledge and stay up to date.  
  • You are “blue”: precise, rigorous, focused on the end result but without losing yourself into details.  
  • You’re a strong communicator, who knows how to drive the team towards its’ goals.  
  • You recognize yourself in our company values (summarized in one sentence): we are an open-minded, highly approachable, ambitious yet humble tribe of warm-hearted consultants, who are not afraid of a challenge and dare to make the jump.
