Want to help hundreds of thousands of people think better?

reMarkable is a Norwegian tech company on a mission to help people think better in a distracted world. In what feels like no time at all, we've gone from a small startup to one of the fastest-growing tech scaleups in Norway.

Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, and our new subscription service, Connect, in 2021, we've set exciting growth and product development goals for the coming years. To help us get there, we need new colleagues ready to make a real difference through their work – which is where you come in.

We are currently building a team that is responsible for strategic follow up and development of our Manufacturing Partners (EMS/ODM/JDM) for device and accessories. For this team we are looking for a Sourcing Manager who will help us establish, build and develop a world-class supply base and strong supplier relationships with our Manufacturing Partners that drive the evolution of reMarkable's existing and new products.

Are you ready to join the exciting growth of a truly unique technology company?


About the role

Working with sourcing in reMarkable is something very special. With us, you will have the opportunity to directly influence the products, delivery capacity, and profitability of a growing company that is rapidly expanding its customer base, geographical presence, and product portfolio. As a Sourcing Manager for Manufacturing Partners, you will be responsible for further developing and implementing a global sourcing strategy for product development and manufacturing, follow up on supplier performance, contract management and developing our global supplier network. You will be a key player in ensuring that our customers receive good products delivered at good prices and on time.

We work closely with several of the global leading suppliers to the consumer electronics industry and you will gain many exciting experiences with international trade in the role. You will be part of our Supply Chain team and report to Head of Partner Management.

The role’s key responsibilities will be to:

  • Manage and maintain long-term supplier relationships with Manufacturing Partners in cooperation with management and engineering

  • Run the development, implementation, and management of global sourcing and supplier strategies to give reMarkable optimal flexibility, quality, cost and supply assurance

  • Responsible for supplier relationship management, follow up on supplier performance, and contract lifecycle management

Who are you?

You identify yourself as a professional expert in procurement and sourcing and can contribute to a strong competitive environment in a department with skilled colleagues. With us, there is a high pace, a lot of responsibility, and not least a culture of change that characterizes everyday life and this should be something that tempts more than it scares. To thrive in this role, you will have to work well in teams across subjects, cultures, geographies, and time zones. It is also important that you have the skills and agility needed to perform the job independently and with impact.


Desired experience and characteristics:

  • Master's degree in relevant subject areas (business/engineering) or equivalent

  • Outgoing and easy-going in order to adapt to many stakeholders both internally and externally

  • Strong collaboration skills

  • Be comfortable with working independently to deliver on expectations

  • Strong analytical and problem-solving capabilities
