Healthcare Buyer

Company: 3D Systems
Location: Littleton
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

Position Overview

The 3D Systems site in Littleton, Colorado is expanding rapidly and needs a skilled Buyer to augment existing Supply Chain capacity under the direction of the Supply Chain Manager. The mission of the Supply Chain team is to procure goods and services in support of our fleet of 3D printing machines. Our pace of growth is only matched by the pace at which our customers expect their new and innovative products to be delivered.


As part of the Healthcare Solutions business of 3D Systems, the Littleton facility acts as a service bureau to enable customers without the expertise, capital, or desire to additively manufacture their products. We are experts in digital workflows, patient-specific medical devices, and five different kinds of 3D printing. The Advanced Manufacturing department serves both the Personalized Healthcare Solutions as well as the Advanced Manufacturing product lines with plastic and metal additive manufacturing.

Performance Objectives

The following performance objectives will determine job success for this position:

  • Process Purchase Orders: Receive purchase requests from site stakeholders and understand their requirements. Recommend solutions, sources and administer purchase order entry in Oracle. Determine proper cost allocation and code accounting strings for each line item to match. Provide the necessary specifications to suppliers and provide details on the purchase orders to support specifications, where appropriate. Identify the most cost-effective shipping method and define appropriate incoterms. Submit approved purchase orders to suppliers and verify availability, lead time, and price.
  • Manage Inventory: Review and update minimum stock levels for all recurring purchases and ensure that stock levels are maintained. Mitigate risk of stock out and over-supply with systems and processes, adjusting with business cycles both within 3DS and within our supply base.
  • Meet Supplier Performance Metrics: Meet established price, quality and on-time delivery objectives. Resolve quality and quantity discrepancies. Seek cost reductions with alternate products, suppliers and delivery methods. Critique, design and improve business processes to support the changing business and to take advantage of opportunities to increase efficiencies.
  • Maintain Systems: Ensure current and accurate information regarding parts, suppliers and shipment status is input and reflected in the installed Oracle system. Work with new suppliers to obtain documentation required to be added to the Approved Supplier List, initiate Supplier Quality Agreements and negotiate payment terms.
  • Collaborate with Suppliers: Develop working relationships with suppliers. Establish lines of communication with suppliers to ensure proactive notification of any exception status. Lead longer term efforts to improve communication, business processes and quality initiatives for the mutual benefit of 3DS and our supplier partners.
  • Support Finance Initiatives: Resolve invoice issues identified by Accounts Payable. Work with internal teams and suppliers to verify invoices are paid when expected. Follow up on outstanding receipts and verify cost and/or quantity discrepancies.
  • Manage Procurement Card Spend: Verify purchases on procurement cards are acceptable with the requester's direct management. Accurately code purchasing card receipts; including accounting information, requester and product requested each month, prior to close. Provide requested information to Leadership and/or Finance, as required.


The successful candidate will have 3-5 years of experience in a manufacturing environment and be able to communicate with a diverse team. Experience with inventory management, MRP systems, supply contracts, and cost accounting is a plus. The ability to communicate clearly, manage suppliers with influential leadership and to work with cross-functional teams will be beneficial to completing the above performance objectives. Proficiency with ERP Systems (Oracle preferred) desired. Because compliance to standards is important for both our medical device and aerospace customers, experience in a regulated industry is preferred.


High School diploma required. Bachelor's Degree in Supply Chain, Operations Management, Engineering, General Business, Accounting or Finance preferred. APICS and or ISM Certification is a plus.

Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary Range: $54,200 - $75,800 (Salary to be determined by the education, experience, knowledge, skills, and abilities of the candidate, and alignment with market data)
