Technical Consultant Business Applications

OMP enjoyed a strong growth the past years. This growth resulted in the development of own tools and the purchase of external tools to support different business processes for several teams. OMP wants to further professionalize these activities: centralize, further develop and support internal and external tools.

For example, we have internal tools for sales forecasts and reporting, resource planning and logging, supporting the recruitment process and more . We use external tools like Omnitracker and Salesforce.com.

We are looking for a colleague who will take the responsibility for some of these tools.
