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.

The current application systems architecture supporting order to cash, make to deliver and record to report business capabilities is not adapted to the business growth and evolution beyond 2026, so the EOS business transformation has been initiated. The technical CoE is responsible for developing the solutions for Royal Canin's EOS transformation, which must also be suitable for the future needs of Mars Pet Nutrition.

This role in the CoE is responsible for the SAP S/4 integrations required for the global Make to Deliver template. The role will design integration between S/4 and Royal Canin's MES application, and later with other Mars Petcare MES systems. It will also involve designing a range of other master-data and transactional integrations to S/4 such as Bills of Material, Production Plans, Production Goods Receipts and Actual Material Consumption. It requires a blend of functional and integration knowledge.

This role will also manage any requirements to provide Make to Deliver data to analytic solutions.

What are we looking for?

  • Experience as a business analyst, particularly in defining interfaces for Supply Chain functionalities within SAP ECC or S/4 (PP/MM) systems and integrating them with target systems such as MES and WMS.
  • Sufficient integration experience to challenge proposed integration solutions proposed by specialist integration architects.
  • Able to coordinate across multiple technical teams (source, middleware, destination) to undertake the development and testing phases of the integrations.
  • Knowledge of the data and master-data for Supply Chain functions.
  • Experience with Supply Chain operational reporting, ideally S/4 embedded analytics.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Good communication, especially in English, and interpersonal skills.

What will be your key responsibilities?

  • Define and specify transactional and master-data integrations to align with the Make to Deliver template. Bring a mix of interface design and manufacturing industry knowledge to ensure the greatest possible reusability.
  • Collaborate with the owners of relevant source and destination systems, including Factory Engineering, R&D, master-data & analytics teams. Also, with the DT teams responsible for support and enhancement of applications that are not replaced by the transformation but will interface with SAP.
  • Provide the system integrator and Mars DT integration team with interface specifications, ensuring the deliverables progress as expected and are scalable.
  • Define interface test plans and ensure they are executed robustly.
  • Support deployment teams implementing the template interfaces
  • Undertake other design work when required, under guidance from the solution architect.
