Senior Consultant MES/ Automation Test and Development - Gdansk

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 40 other IT specialists, including SAP consultants, project managers, agile coaches and developers, to deliver great results within e.g. SAP, web and mobile.  

Together, 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.

Become a key resource in testing Arla MES & Automation Platform and applications.
Arla IT prepares an update of the MES platform on all sites as a strategic step to meet the digitalization agenda in Arla. The MES Team aims to be in control with the area to support all sites with strong standards for PLC systems, SCADA and DCS software. The Roll Out requires a strong setup.

The MES Platform standards consist of a couple of applications and integration building blocks and systems based on SAP MII, SQL servers and Wonderware. The MES Platform communicates with SAP ERP level and the PLC environment consisting of Siemens, Rockwell and ABB 800xA.

You will be a part of building up test system and describe and document test scenarios. We will be using at least two test systems (Tosca and TestRail for manually test). We aim to further develop automated test based on Tosca.

You will be part of the MES Platform team joining our dairy program and you will be a part of the IT Solutions team with more than 90 colleagues using agile methods as the way of working. You will be located in Gdansk. However, you should expect approx. 20 days of travel per year primarily to our locations in Denmark. You will in your daily work cooperate closely with our MES team, located in Denmark.

Your main tasks will be:

  • Running tests.
  • Assisting the development team doing bug fixing and making new features.
  • Develop new test scenarios as well as automatic tests.
  • Making user guides and other documentations.

“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 some exciting and complex tools and processes,” says Hans Grønnebæk Hansen, Senior Manager, Agile Transformation.

Your Gdansk possibility

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 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 us create a centre of expertise and collaborate across cultures and borders.
