Software Buyer

Blizzard Entertainment games don’t just begin with game ideas, or end once those games are released. A lot more goes into the creation of a Blizzard product than the work of developers—and we support our games for years after they’re in the hands of gamers world-wide. Being a lean and nimble part of Blizzard operations, Blizzard's purchasing team thrives in wearing multiple hats in servicing internal organizations through procurement of different volumes, product knowledge, vendor negotiations, an understanding of software licensing agreements, and Blizzard-like work ethic!

Our team is currently looking for a talented Purchasing Analyst.

Requirements

  • Related purchasing experience in organizations with multi-million-dollar budget spends
  • Experience with IT Category Spend (General computer hardware & software)
  • Demonstrated negotiation and customer service skills
  • Impeccable attention to detail, organizational and time management abilities
  • Self-starter with the ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • Creative analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Strong knowledge of current computer hardware and software technologies
  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience or equivalent education / work experience


Pluses

  • Experience with enterprise level software
  • Ability to review and interpret software license agreements (Terms of Service & End User License agreements)
  • Comfortable interacting with all levels of management
  • A passion for video games
