Our company

We’re Bluecrux. Pleased to meet you!

Founded in 2011, Bluecrux is a value chain consulting and technology company. Our experts and software solutions help to transform today’s supply chains into smart, efficient, and fully integrated value chains. We believe that only true collaboration leads to innovation, by converging at the intersection of our knowledge and our customers’ ambition and linking expertise with technology and problems with solutions.

We’re a community, a movement that’s built at this intersection, which we call “the Cutting X”: it’s where supply chains evolve and value chains are forged. Our client portfolio includes some of the world’s largest companies, including Johnson & Johnson, GSK, Roche, Bridgestone, AkzoNobel, Beiersdorf, Oatly, and many more. Our desire to work closely with them is also reflected in our global presence, with offices both in Europe and the US.

With the power of Anaplan, a leading connected planning solution, and our planning expertise, we help our customers make the right planning decisions and drive growth. We connect people, plans and data, bring scenario planning capabilities and connect supply chain to sales, finance and HR.

Your role

  • By using leading planning platforms you will enable decision-makers to plan and manage their business on a single platform through a patented modelling engine, predictive analytics and cloud collaboration. This will allow departmental specialists to build their own models, always integrated with the global planning, while ensuring the integrity of different levels of planning, combined with the scalability of a cloud application and allowing the business to evolve at a tight speed with low dependency of IT departments.
  • You will be operating in project teams consisting of production & demand planners, account managers, business controllers, supply chain directors and finance directors.
  • In close cooperation with your project lead, you will translate the requirements of the customer into an Anaplan model blueprint.
  • As an Anaplan Solution Architect or very experienced model builder, you will drive best practices within the Anaplan team and in every project that you are a part of.
  • You support the other model builders on the project with technical questions.
  • You are part of a start-up-like department and focus on usability, user experience and engagement for this planning tool.
  • Ultimately you make sure that the tool connects the different aspects of planning according to the needs of the customer, (e.g. demand forecast of an account manager integrating with the cash flow forecast of a controller).
  • Streamlining business processes and information management fostering collaboration of commercial functions and supply chain planning functions.
  • Ensuring project control on models, compliance, communication and changes.

Our offer

  • A role with real impact by playing a leading role towards our people, projects and clients.
  • No politics, fast decisions and a can-do mentality. You become part of a highly motivated team of hands-on supply chain professionals, that attaches great importance to the above-mentioned values in their day-to-day activities.
  • A 50/50 hybrid work regime combining homework with the availability of brand new offices in Aalst and Mechelen, close to the E40 and E19. On your way to a client or on your way back home, it’s easy for you to pop in.
  • Room for initiative, room to enhance but as well rely on your personal and professional skills, but most importantly: room to be yourself.
  • A competitive salary, including a company car.
