Job Description

Our IT team operates as a business partner proposing ideas and innovative solutions that enable new organizational capabilities. We collaborate internationally to deliver the services and solutions that help everyone to be more productive and enable innovation.

In the advancement of our Company's digital strategy, the supply chain management (SCM) organization plays a critical role at the intersection of our Company's Manufacturing and Commercial organizations and our customers. To balance its compliance, supply, service, and cost objectives, SCM has embarked on a multi-year journey which includes deployment of many digital capabilities, including innovations using advanced technologies such as blockchain, internet-of-things (IoT), robotic process automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence (AI).

This role will be responsible for technical delivery of advanced solutions as part of the SCM digital strategy. This role will undertake the ambiguous task of advancing the digital agenda through its lifecycle, from experimentation to the development to final implementation.

Execution of programs, particularly IT delivery, is expected to be accomplished through a network of platform and product owners, the IT hubs in Prague, Singapore, and the United States, as well as through an ecosystem of technology service providers.

Candidate needs to have strong technical, communication, and networking skills. The ability to take complex technical concepts and explain how they solve complex business problems to both technical and non-technical audiences is critical. Candidate should possess a strong passion for innovative technology but match that passion with a strong desire to realize value through application of these innovations to solve real problems. Candidates who have experience with blockchain preferred. Supply chain familiarity is preferred but not required.
