Job Description
MES Functional Specialist - HYDRA - REMOTE
We are an international manufacturing company with plants throughout the U.S. that is looking for full time permanent MES functional specialist .

We are in the process of rolling out SAP and our MES System (Hydra) to our factories throughout the United States. Right now it is a five year plan.

You will need to document these and translate those needs to our functional team who will develop those specialized templates and send them back for you to deliver to the end user. You will be responsible for testing the functionality of the templates and how they integrate with our ERP and then deliver training to the end users.
