Product & sourcing manager

Who are we?

 

Yuma Labs designs and produces high quality eyewear from sustainable materials.

 

We are not just another sunglasses brand. We consider ourselves a laboratory, founded with a rebellious spirit to experiment and rethink the way we make and use our everyday products. We are in business to kickstart the circular economy within the fashion industry at large. We love to challenge ourselves, our processes, partners and customers to make iconic products that spark the conversation about the circular economy.

 

In other words: We make sunglasses that offer a completely different view —quite literally— on the role of waste in our society and environment.

 

What will you do?

As our sourcing manager, you’ll manage projects for clients in close contact with the account manager and designers. You’ll be responsible for the communication with suppliers and lead our production, making sure high quality standards and crucial deadlines are reached within budget. When needed  you travel to suppliers to build new partnerships and perform audits. As a product manager you know how technical drawing works and you will have to acquire ind-depth knowledge in eyewear design and new materials. You won’t be responsible for developing completely new products but can be a sounding board for the R&D department where needed. 

 

Who are you?

You would be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have a technical background with a strong affinity for manufacturing, plastics and recycling
  • Are a fast learner.
  • Have a feeling for design but are always focused on technical feasibility
  • Can communicate strongly in a structured way with your team and suppliers all over the world
  • Get excited about setting up and improving processes
  • Have a ‘can-do’ attitude in a fast-changing environment
  • Are able to travel to our Antwerp office at least 2-3 days/week
  • Are fluent in English and Dutch

 

What do we offer?

We offer a dynamic job that will be surprising on a daily basis. You’ll become part of a small team that’s growing fast, this will give you a lot of responsibility and you’ll be able to be part of a promising impact company, with opportunities to grow into a leadership role. Working hours are based on trust and you have the possibility to work remotely.
