Senior Product Designer
Hounslow, Greater London, England
Permanent (Full time)
At Zencargo, we are obsessed with optimising our client's supply chain. We have built out a team of over 130 people, including 40 people across product, engineering and design. Whilst Supply Chain Management is a complex and multi-stakeholder process, the core is relatively simple: ensure that the right inventory is in the right place at the right time, at the lowest possible cost. Increasingly, the difference between getting this right and wrong is the difference between business success and failure for our clients, across revenue, cost and carbon footprint. There is a real need to radically change how supply chains with uncertain demand take informed decisions and work collaboratively internally and with external stakeholders. The combination of our vision, people and technology has placed us in Sunday times tech track 100 'ones to watch'. We have been awarded the prestigious BIFA supply chain management award and we are proud to be a part of the Tech Nation Upscale cohort.
