Job Description

Job Description:

The strategic ambition is to serve 35m pets and generate $7b NSV by 2025. These ambitions call for capabilities enabling sustainable omni channel growth, inventory turnover ratio improvement, real time analytics and visibility driven by data, channel expansion seamlessly integrated and confirmed customer satisfaction in line with the quality and passion we put in our products.

In 2021, we acknowledged the need for Enterprise Architecture changes based on an analysis looking at our business needs, our current pain points, our technical gaps, and our strategic vision.

The current application systems architecture supporting order to cash, produce to deliver and record to record business capabilities is not adapted to the business growth and evolution beyond 2026.

To enable Vision 2025, several transformation programs have already started and other must be launched.

These programs are not just systems upgrades or changes, they will also focus on standardization of the business processes. To create value, they are business transformations needing a specific organizational design to ensure quality, efficiency, governance, visibility, and transparency. They must be business led from the top of the organization down to every unit.
