What is the Value Engineering Role?

The Value Engineering team at LeanDNA operates in conjunction with the Customer Success team to ensure our customers successfully engineer LeanDNA into their existing workflows and start generating savings as quickly as possible. The Value Engineering team works with the customers to establish new workflows and metrics to help them achieve their goals. If a customer requires unique metrics and/or analytics that are not directly available in LeanDNA, the Value Engineer will help them close these gaps whenever possible. As a Value Engineer, you will work closely with the customer’s senior management to ensure LeanDNA is driving improvements in their KPIs and delivering savings. You’ll leverage your expertise in supply chain management, data analytics and lean principles to provide our customers with solutions tailored to address their unique objectives.

To be successful in this role, you need experience working in supply chain management with experience reporting to senior management. You will be expected to be very familiar with ERP/MRP systems and supply chain theory. In addition to theory, the ideal candidate should be very familiar with ad-hoc data analysis techniques (pivot tables) and have some exposure to one or more data analytics tools (Tableau, Qlik, PowerBI, etc.).

In addition, the ideal candidate should be a proven change agent that is familiar with lean principles including Lean project management (DMAIC), value stream mapping, and kaizen events. Prior experience leading lean events is highly beneficial.


  • Perform current state analysis of the customer’s supply chain management process

  • Document bottlenecks and pain points 

  • Develop alternative workflows to mitigate issues using existing LeanDNA functionality

  • Implement new workflows, meetings, and metrics with the customer

  • Train the customer to monitor and manage the new workflows

  • Establish Executive level metrics and dashboards

  • Document the levers available to influence key metrics

  • Monitor progress and provide proactive suggestions to the customer as required

  • Support on-going QBRs

Skills & Experience:

  • Supply Chain Management experience working as either a senior buyer, manager, or director with 3-5 years of experience reporting to senior management.

  • Credible and effective consultant/advisor/coach, especially around change management dealing directly with senior management (cultural, technical, and business)

  • Detailed understanding of ERP systems and data analytics

  • Experience in the Aerospace, Automotive, Commercial Truck, Heavy Equipment, or similar industries is desirable

  • Excellent verbal, written, and presentation skills

  • Proven effectiveness at leading and conducting executive training sessions, meetings, and workshops (often remotely)

An Insider's view of LeanDNA

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Management puts trust into each employee’s contribution and competence here, and that shows in our laid-back and energetic office vibe. We also have an open floor plan that encourages collaboration, plus couches and bean bag chairs. So you can find the right space at the right time without feeling like you're being micromanaged.


Client Success Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We’re helping manufacturers get their factories off of spreadsheets and into a purpose-built platform that provides them with daily actionable insights. It's fulfilling work knowing that we’re giving these teams hours back in their day to focus on more rewarding work.


Enterprise Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned so much about supply chain and the struggles and motivators of leaders and buying teams at companies we work with—the factories that build our cars, planes, and the machinery that powers our production systems. We're lucky to be able to help these professionals thrive in their careers and feel more fulfilled in their day-to-day work.


Campaign Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Productive, collaborative, and constantly moving! My day begins with a team huddle to decide priorities and goals for the day. I spend most of my time working with prospects, clients, and our internal team to solve problems when they arise, so there is never a dull moment. There's a lot of work to do and we have a great team working on it together!
