JOB DETAIL

Overview

Optiply is located at the intersection of three fast-growing industries: Software as a Service, Artificial Intelligence and e-commerce. With our smart purchasing software, we now offer to more than 300 web shops and wholesalers access to the same tool on the basis of monthly subscriptions. With Optiply, they can predict sales and determine exactly what to buy and when. This not only provides financial benefits, but also ensures that there are far fewer emissions and waste in the supply chain. Companies that work with us are, for example, DekbedDiscounter, Travelbags and XXL Nutrition. Despite the fact that we finance everything from our own turnover, we are one of the top 10 fastest growing tech companies in the Netherlands. This and the international ambitions mean that we will go from 30 to 100 employees next year. So plenty of personal growth opportunities!
