Description

"Global Business Analytics" co-creates and delivers innovative data-driven solutions for better business decisions through mathematical modeling (operations research, statistical analysis, and data science), the development of sustainable programs, as well as IT solutions (process and visualization of results and "Big Data").

This function acts as the center of expertise for "Big Data" within the organization and plays an important role in the implementation of projects coming from Tailored Solutions and Sustainable Programs which are developed and delivered in collaboration with all business and functional units within the Group (including Procurement, Production, Supply Chain, Planning & Controlling, Marketing & Sales, and Finance).

As a member of a leading edge team with expertise in Operations Research, Statistics, and Data Science responsible for leveraging mathematics to propel paradigm shifts across the entire company, the incumbent will be responsible for supporting the initiation, execution, and completion of projects in the area of "Big Data", Predictive Analytics, and Business Optimization to increase business profitability and reduce costs. In this role, s/he will work within multidisciplinary teams and work in collaboration with members from various business and corporate units, to complete deliverables as defined by the requirements of projects and initiatives.

You will be 'hands-on' and work on projects, to execute deliverables during all phases of an analytics project, starting from project definition to completion. Deliverables will include the development of the appropriate mathematical models using internal tools and commercial software, collaborate with members from other functions to gather and validate the necessary data, and present the project results and benefits to the stake holders and internal clients.

Communicating the ideas and solutions of advanced business analytics to a broad community of non-mathematicians and acting as a driving force in international and interdisciplinary project teams will be a key success-factor. In addition, you will work autonomously in the completion of deliverables and will participate in all relevant project and team meetings as required.
