About the Role
As Product Manager, you will become our chemical & technical expert for a number of specific oleochemical product categories. Think about applications like polymer additives and green renewable polyols. You will support the Business Manager & Sales with technical-commercial advice and join them on customer visits.
Sustainability is on top at Oleon and you help shape this strategy. You examine how you can reduce the carbon footprint of our products, take the initiative and follow up new product development that you launch worldwide. For this you work closely together with other business units. You will draw up marketing plans, provide training and coordinate with the R&D business unit.
You monitor new products and developments in the lab, give input and suggest improvements. You manage the product specifications and make adjustments where necessary. You closely follow the developments in your own field and manage the changing data in the market.
You report to the Business Manager and work closely with the Market Manager.
You are passionate about chemistry and have a strong technical affinity for a manufacturing environment.
You have a master's degree (preferably an engineering degree in a chemical field).
You are curious, think in solutions and have an analytical mind.
At Oleon, we love entrepreneurship and collaboration. In this role you also have good commercial and communication skills. You bring the product to the customer, but also work closely with other business units. Therefore Dutch and English are a must and you have a solid base of French.
You are willing to travel regularly.
