SP supports a range of teams across the business including Engineering (e.g., hardware, software, communication); Logistics and WH (e.g., plant and machinery, packaging, supplies); Marketing, Algorithms & Analytics and Merchandising; Talent (e.g., contingent labor, recruiting, systems); Facilities; Finance; and, Legal.
