XORE is hiring for a project manager with a client-centric focus to handle international logistics and occasional sales support.
Xore is an international supplier of analysis equipment for the mining industry. We’re a growing company with a foundational product technology that’s long been established in its sector. Our work environment is one where all opinions and ideas are welcome. Here, close collaboration with our clients is one of our greatest strengths, and it’s how we help them improve their operations along with our products. Together, we develop, optimize, and enhance instruments that increase efficiency.

To keep pace with increasing business, we are looking for a project manager to mainly coordinate with suppliers and clients around the world, as well as provide some support to our sales staff.
