Operational Buyer

  • Full-time

Do you want to be a part of a young, hungry start-up working towards electrifying the world's vehicles and machines? Do you want to feel the exhilaration of working with a team of like-minded future-forward people using cutting-edge technology to create advanced battery systems? Then we think you might just belong with the ELEO crew.


We're growing every day, which means we need more fresh minds joining the team. 

Right now, that means an Operational Buyer to come on board brimming with ideas and ready to take the battery industry by storm with us! 

What will you do as an Operational Buyer at ELEO?

As the Operational Buyer you will ensure all purchase orders are communicated to, managed and received from our vendors.

As ELEO’s new Operational Buyer you will be dealing with:

  • Conducting Purchase-to-Pay processes;
  • PO monitoring and timely escalation in case of unconfirmed or expected delay in delivery;
  • Working closely with Project Buyers to source goods;
  • Preparing local tenders for new projects;
  • Communication with vendors on contracts & compliance;
  • Perform other related duties as assigned.


A day in the life of an Operational Buyer:

Your day kicks off with a cup of coffee, giving you the caffeine fix you need to get started. You check your email/messages for any updates and then check in with the team Chris Sampson & Zoriana Baloha . 

You dive right in on running planned purchase orders--creating the documentation and providing it to our vendors. 

Next, it's time for lunch. If it's a nice, sunny day you head outside to catch some rays with your teammates on a lunch walk. 

Full and happy, you hop back in and sit in project kick-off meetings with Bas Rijs and Marc Blinderbach to understand what our customers' special requirements are and what the ideal procurement path is. 

You also review vendor KPI's with Chris to make sure that the expectations of both us and our partners are met. 

You wrap up your work and it's time to go home! You had an awesome, productive day and got a ton of great work done with your team. Enjoy your evening, and see you tomorrow!
