Please see feedback from manager . Based on candidates I am seeing here are my comments.
Current candidate pool seems to be weighted towards financial/ services industry experience and more of BI implementation. We need candidates with at least 1 end to end SAP supply chain implementation in a discrete manufacturing or manufacturing MRO industry. Experience in business positions in supply chain as a buyer, planner, expeditor, scheduler will be valuable too. Good to have exposure to querying in SAP and HANA. We do not need significant years of experience and will be open to give the right passionate individual chance to show their skills provided they have the minimal experience in terms of implementation, industry, and HANA. We will prefer candidates with either supply chain or engineering undergraduate education.
