Procurement Specialist (m/w/d)

Berlin /
Packaging /
At Packmatic, we are re-thinking the packaging market and create solutions transforming the packaging industry into the digital age and improving its environmental footprint.  

As tech-enabled digital sourcing platform we create transparency in one of the largest, yet 100% undigitized B2B markets and help companies make their packaging more sustainable, improve its functionality and source it smarter. At the same time, we empower packaging suppliers to enter new markets with a few clicks and secure customer orders tailored to their product portfolio and machine park.  

Our team combines technological excellence, industry engineering expertise and state-of-the-art commercial execution and is led by experienced founders who have already previously successfully scaled digital companies. If you are as motivated as we are to disrupt one of the largest B2B industries worldwide and have real impact at a super fast growing digital startup in the heart of Berlin, Packmatic is the right place for you ! 

We have already digitized the packaging sourcing of numerous happy customers  and have helped them to save many tons of plastic along the way – but this was just the start.
