Location: Waukegan, Illinois
Position Type:Contract
Start Date: 03/01/2018
Title: Business Systems Analyst
Location: Waukegan, IL
Type: 8+ month contract with potential for extension

Specifically we are needing some deep procurement and technical skills on the Ariba platform, while we would look for skills on the sourcing, contract and spend visibility, we are looking for some overall solution architecture support as we continue our journey on designing the source-to-settle elements. We are focused this year on the supplier onboarding platform (SLP), but as well looking harder at the rest of the ariba platform as well. It may be optimistic to find someone, but we are looking for a good technical resource who has skills with the configuration of the platform or done implementation work.

More importantly, we need a strong BSA that can work in the Procurement space. Namely on upstream solutions around sourcing, contract management, or has skills with SAP vendor master. We recently lost a resource that was more a BSA, strong with the business and process mapping, but as well with the requirements and knowing some of the Ariba supplier tools and strong understanding of SRM and Vendor master.
