Suitable candidates are likely to have at least 4 years’ experience in a similar role, as the successful applicant will be responsible for a range of high profile retail IT projects, implementing their highly configurable and integrated sales platform, which manages collaborative planning, customer plans, trade promotions, pricing policies, field worker productivity, customers claims, advanced analytics, modelling and forecasting.
The selected candidate will also be responsible for assuring technical consistence of the configuration and customisation, as well as being the technical point of reference for the client and the project team.

• Thorough knowledge and understanding of software applications architecture and infrastructure
• Advanced SQL and RDBMS architecture knowledge
• SQL performance tuning
• ETL and data integration skills
• Experience in system testing and support to user acceptance testing (UAT)

These roles will require considerable travel to clients’ sites, often across Europe, although in return the company offers excellent work life balance and outstanding career development prospects, in a fast growing and very well-funded global organisation.
