Fuel Business Systems Analyst – Portland, OR

The Role of Fuel Business Systems Analyst

We have invested heavily within the Transportation and Production arms of our business within recent months. With a steadfast goal of building a strong vertically-integrated supply chain that can source our biodiesel plant with a sufficient feedstock of used cooking oil (UCO), we have significantly grown our collection business—both organically and through a number of acquisitions. Our growth efforts have taken us from a point just a year ago at which we collected UCO from a few thousand customers to a point now at which we collect from over 18,000 customers. Given our rapid growth we are now at a point where we need to expand our IT team.
