In short

Integrated Business Planning

The Data Science team is positioned within the CoE IBP (Center of Excellence for Integrated Business Planning). IBP is the management process through which we run the company. It is a process of structured collaboration which aligns all layers and functions around one set of data, one plan, and joint decisions. In the CoE IBP, we standardize and optimize the planning cycle and E2E supply chain, as an end goal to optimize service level, cost, and inventory. This enables the company to achieve the best possible performance for our customers, employees, and shareholders. 
The Data Science team serves as the brain of the CoE IBP where insights are generated, processes are automated, and solutions are built. We are looking for (senior) data engineers to join our high performing team. We aim to attract and further develop the best Data Science & Supply Chain talent.
