Job Details



Our F100 client located near Cleveland, OH is looking for a detail-oriented and energetic IT Contracts and Vendor Management Analyst for a REMOTE, 6-month contract-to-hire position.



They are searching for someone who can lead and drive the sourcing and contract management process for IT purchases (software and telecom, primarily). You d be working closely with several groups internally and externally to ensure that purchasing contracts are properly managed and executed from beginning to end. In addition to essentially serving as the project manager over the contract lifecycle, you d be directly responsible for handling negotiations with vendors. So, almost above all else, they re really looking for candidates who have strong negotiation skills and are comfortable being in that role. Please note, while this is a fully remote position, candidates must be able to generally follow an EST schedule.



Day-to-day responsibilities:

- Driving ALL aspects of contract negotiations, including partnering with internal stakeholders: Legal, Information Security, Risk & Vendors

- Developing and maintaining relationships with internal and external stakeholders (e.g., vendors, business and platforms)

- The contractor will be working in Coupa, in addition to Excel spreadsheets

Essential Skills:


- Strong understanding of negotiating software

- Must have 2-5 years of IT Sourcing experience

- Ability to research and maintain awareness of emerging technology terms and concepts

- Analysis and problem-solving skills (this job does not follow an A-Z process check-off list. It pivots and things come up and research of old contracts and answering questions from internal and external stakeholders will throw the process off, so it's important for this contractor to be flexible and be ready to problem solve and to ask questions.

- Organizational skills and ability to work on multiple projects and/or assignment simultaneously

- Listening, verbal and written communications skills with the ability to present information to internal teams

- Ability to manage negotiations for multiple contracts concurrently. (50+ contracts annually- vary in complexity)
