Senior Solution Consultant for MES solutions, Viby, Denmark - Aarhus

Can you take our global MES solutions even higher? We are eager to delegate a large part of the responsibility to you, if you are up for it and capable of taking our solutions to the next level. We are on a journey to implement MES solutions at a global scale, and look forward to welcoming you onboard. “Dairy” is the department covering Manufacturing Execution & Automation across the global Arla organisation. We define and maintain a corporate standard toolbox within MES & Automation, and collaborate with stakeholders across our sites. The toolbox is applied by a large number of trusted suppliers into specific solutions at our manufacturing sites around the globe.

The job

To be a success, you will play a big part in setting the overall direction for the next generation of MES solutions. You join our team in developing the architecture and will handle complexity in the processes both at the strategic and operational level. You will get the opportunity to work with extremely complex projects and bring your MES domain knowledge into our corporate solutions, and be responsible for a designated functional area within your area of expertise. The job will offer variation between head quarter-based developing and designing solutions and working closely together with colleagues at the dairy sites across the world when implementing solutions. You should expect 30-50 travelling days per year.

You question our processes in search for opportunities for continuous improvement and deliver knowledge into projects that will have major impact on our functional success. All in all, you ensure that our MES solutions are mature, well-documented and live up to the needs of our customers, the Arla Foods Supply Chain.

Driving standardisation of the area includes cost-optimal migration of the current production database and development of tomorrow’s best practice methods, applications and interfaces. Another important part of your job will be to ensure proper documentation and education material for our suppliers and other stakeholders.

You are

You probably hold a Master’s degree within Engineering or IT, and you have in-depth experience with MES solutions preferably from the food or other related industry. If you are not already one of the top 10 within your field, you have a huge appetite for becoming one of the top MES Consultants within Food.

You have profound analytical skills and the ability to handle intricate processes and data models in a complex system landscape. You are thus well-versed within applications, data structures and solutions, and you have the capacity to create the foundation for an efficient and stable master data environment. You have previously been working with standardisation in large-scale organisations and have successfully headed implementation of international standards as e.g. ISA-88. As we work agile in Arla IT, it would be great if you are familiar with Scrum processes, however if you are not, we will definitely teach you.

As we operate in a global organisation, it is important that you communicate effortlessly in English in writing as well as spoken.
