Go straight to:

How do you make our customers happy?

In 2017 bol.com opened one of the most sustainable, highly automated, and largest fulfillment centers in the Netherlands. Clearly its Warehouse Management System (WMS) needs to perform flawlessly 24/7. Can you take that performance to an even higher level, and translate performance insights into improvements and innovations that boost the quality?

Your responsibilities as a WMS Consultant

  • Analyze, configure and optimize the WMS
  • Help develop, adapt and extend the WMS, while maintaining 24/7 uptime
  • Design, supervise and perform WMS-related tests
  • Translate business processes into technical WMS solutions

As WMS consultant you bridge the gap between business requirements and the WMS system. This includes designing warehouse processes for procedural and technical efficiency. A role with considerable impact, because your expertise determines how smoothly and efficiently our WMS (Reflex) functions going forward. Zoom in on the details and fine tune every aspect of the platform to ensure the (ongoing) success of our fulfillment center.

How can we optimize our pickers’ workload? What algorithms can we use to serve 10+ million customers even faster? Analyze our current choices and change proposal requests, suggest innovations and improvements, and manage the implementation of new solutions. You will also work on the WMS in relation to several ongoing projects in our new warehouses, such as optimizing return shipments, XL products, and the mechanization of processes. In short: as WMS Consultant you analyze complex business process requirements and translate your in-depth insights into robust technical solutions.

Why you can make the difference

Because you’re the kind of solution-oriented WMS professional who makes us smile. You combine a sincere passion for technology with great communications skills and enjoy working closely with business units. You go the extra mile to help colleagues, but also know when to draw a line in the sand. For example when customer expectations become unrealistic. And you feel at home in an environment that explores – and realizes – new possibilities. You aspire to design future-proof solutions, but when unexpected problems arise you can also think on your feet and improvise quick fixes. Experience with Reflex is welcome but not a must-have.

3 reasons why this is(n’t) for you

  • Because in addition to your bachelor’s degree, you bring a well-rounded set of advisory and IT/logistics skills to the table
  • Because you know how to configure complex systems
  • Because you are willing and able to read code, or are confident you can quickly learn this skill
  • Because whenever you juggle multiple project tasks, some of them invariably land on the floor
  • Because you’re allergic to Scrum
  • Because you don’t like to work with colleagues who don't tell you exactly what to do
