Data Test Specialist - Gdansk

Join our Product Lifecycle Management team and help us build the future of product management in Arla

To enable our growth, we are creating a new IT hub in Gdansk, Poland. That is why we are looking for you to join about 70 other IT specialists, including SAP consultants, project managers, agile coaches and developers, to deliver great results within e.g. SAP, web and mobile.  

As a Scandinavian company, we value mutual trust, collaboration and initiative. Thus, you will have every opportunity to share your ideas, learn and try new things on your own initiative. Join us to help create a centre of expertise and collaborate across cultures and borders.

Building the future of product lifecycle management in Arla
We are building common processes and a common platform across all Arla to manage the lifecycle of all our products. This includes handling all the data around products such as ingredients, recipes, packaging specifications etc. We are looking for a structured and ambitious tester who is eager to learn and will help us in the journey of moving all our existing product data from the scattered system landscape of today into one coherent PLM system of the future. During 2019 we plan to migrate 50-60 sites and all relevant product related data for products produced at these sites. We are looking for a fast learning data tester that can help define and conduct tests to ensure that the migrated data is correct according to specifications and migrating rules. Your main tasks will be together with our data migration team to:

  • Understand the complexity in the data structures and the migration rules of our product data
  • Define and build test specifications to ensure high data quality in the migrated data
  • Conduct scripted and manual tests and report potential errors and deviations
  • Work closely together with the business and the data migration team
  • Participate in an agile team structure and agile ceremonies to ensure highly committed and empowered teams

“We already have a Shared Services Centre in Gdansk, so you will join a major, well-established and modern workplace and you will get a first-hand impression of exciting and complex tools and processes,” says Hans Grønnebæk Hansen, Senior Manager, Agile Transformation.

Your Gdansk possibility
We are insourcing IT competences and establishing a new IT hub in Gdansk to supplement our headquarter in Viby, Denmark and international presence in Europe. Joining IT Solutions and Arla, you become part of a company that is known for our use of agile processes, our internal collaboration and our ability to deliver IT solutions that add value to our end-users. 

As a team, we support Europe’s largest Dairy, a wide range of products and the farmers who own Arla Foods through great IT solutions. Helping us to create these, you can be sure to make a real difference for the entire organisation, and your colleagues near and far. Join us to help us create the future of dairy.

Skills and mindset
You should have analytic skills and know the pitfalls when testing huge amount of data being migrated. You should be able to work in a highly structured way and keep the overview and ensure high quality of our product data. You should be able quickly to learn and manoeuvre in IT systems. You should be able to define tests and conduct manual and scripted tests. You should be willing to learn and develop and see an opportunity to make a career in Arla going forward.
