Sr. Manager, Platform Engineering


Remote - Utah

Who is Elementum™?

Good question. Elementum makes supply chain simple. You know, supply chain—that thing that moves the $25T product economy. That’s “T” as in…….. tell me more.  We do this with our first-of-its-kind cloud-based incident management application.  This intuitive, easy-to-use application enables supply chain participants as well as their external partners to collaborate on rapidly resolving supply chain issues to ensure that the right products get to the right locations at the right time. 

We’re missing this one piece though. You.  No, really.
