What we’re looking for:

We are seeking a Supply Chain Planner to join the Fast Radius team. This person will be responsible for day-to-day execution of RFQs (Request for Quote) within our sourcing department. He or she will submit opportunities for quotation with a network of manufacturing partners all of the world (mainly focused in China).

  • Manage the quoting & costing process for RFQs to network of suppliers
  • Receive, interpret, and input data into our ERP system

  • Support the sales team to ensure timely RFQ responses and resolve supplier questions
  • Monitor and maintain supplier responsiveness, providing data analytics across suppliers
  • Collaborate with team members for best procedures to ensure timely delivery of quotes with the highest quality possible
  • Enforce policies and procedures across multiple process workflows
  • Partner with software development team in developing & implementing new software

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in related discipline or equivalent experience
  • Minimum 4 years of demonstrated success in a similar position
  • Working understanding of different manufacturing processes (injection molding, CNC) is preferred
  • Prior experience in managing and optimizing RFQ and order entry workflows
  • Strong analytical skills and the ability to solve problems under pressure
  • Highly effective computer skills, with demonstrated knowledge of ERP systems
  • Proficient in common software tools and data collection, confident & capable in Excel
  • Attention to detail and ability to communicate and collaborate with internal teams is a must
  • Comfortable working in a fast paced, deadline-driven environment and communicating with oversea suppliers
  • Mandarin language speaking skills is a plus
  • Candidate must be authorized to work in the United States

Every day you can expect to work in an inclusive environment that makes excellence possible, where great work and ideas matter more than seniority. We believe in experimenting fearlessly and learning from our failures—quickly. Our leaders have grown successful companies before, and they understand that businesses thrive when capable people have the freedom to solve problems without constraints.

We want you to come to work happy, healthy, and balanced so you can expect excellent benefits:

- Competitive compensation and bonus structure
- Comprehensive health care including dental and vision
- Generous vacation policy as well as a 401K plan

An Insider's view of Fast Radius

What are some social events your company does?

I believe it’s important to build a strong community at our fast-growing company. There always seems to be something fun going on. Whether it's company-sponsored events like our holiday parties & potlucks or more casual get-togethers after work such as happy hours & sports leagues. These events have helped me get to know people in all divisions.

Kyle Tabatt

Senior Account Executive

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Fast Radius has a strong culture of collaboration. Even the physical layout of the office supports that. The design engineers are next to the manufacturing engineers and the factory so it is easy for us to get feedback and brainstorm in real-time as parts are getting produced.

What does career growth look like on your team?

Growth be can twofold: Growth on a functional level - finding new ways to improve customers' experience with Fast Radius. On an individual level, growth is the expansion of an individual's depth and breadth of skills and experience. As we continue to innovate as a function, new opportunities continue for team members to learn, contribute, and lead.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I empower my team to be more creative & forward-thinking by ensuring they have the space to do strategic thinking and actually implement it. We use an OKR system to set high level objectives backed by concrete key results at a company level, and our teams are responsible for designing their individual OKRs to support company OKRs.
