Is it your ambition to create an impact towards a responsible food chain for future generations? Are you experienced in creating digital solutions on a global scale? Agritech, artificial intelligence, IoT, big data and technology all play a global part in the transition to a sustainable food system. This organization is committed to helping to solve the global food challenge; one of the biggest challenges facing humankind.
The organization was founded in the Netherlands about 120 years ago and is now a leading agricultural cooperative with an international network of subsidiaries based in 16 countries in Europe, South America and Asia and a worldwide distribution network. The head office is located in Apeldoorn and with more than 3,000 employees involved, they work every day to create a healthy future for farmers and society.
By globally combining years of scientific research with local, specific know-how in the arable and livestock feed sector, they offer their customers worldwide the best solutions for the challenges they face every day. With high quality animal feeds, premixes, concentrates, mineral mixes, additives for the animal feed industry, crop cultivation products, animal and crop specific digital solutions and professional advice, their group of subsidiaries offers arable and nutritional solutions for enterprising livestock farmers, integrators, feed mills, distributors and growers. The organization strives to be the preferred knowledge and solution-driven partner for our customers in animal nutrition, crop cultivation and animal, plant and soil health.
The Digital team works on the challenges of the global food chain every day, using cloud technology. Increasing yield without increasing, or even decreasing the environmental footprint is the way forward. All with a sharp view on the orchestration of value to farm, field and industry via personalised, actionable intelligence solutions used within a seamless digital experience. In this way ordering and creating value from their products, optimizing the nutrient life cycle from a total-farm perspective, closing the loop from advice to result, will be fully digitally enabled over the next years. Integration across multi-vendor functionalities and multiple data sources is a key differentiator. Applying Information Technology in this way is essential to the success of the organization and its customers.

An outside-in perspective is applied for the Digital Data Model, to look at the world through the eye of the customer (“World of the farmer”). The diversity of farms should be translated to a universal blueprint model. Maintaining, extending and assuring the proper implementation of this “World of the farmer” data model is a key accountability for the Digital Solution Data Architect.
The architect contributes to maintaining and executing the digital data strategy. This strategy uses the Farmer Data Integration Model and Data Science to implement decision-driven data analytics, selecting the best course of action, finding and using data for clear business purposes
Data Architecture ensures that the business value of Digital applications and data is maximized by applying knowledge of the business needs and opportunities, the business processes, the existing portfolio of IT applications, and the current and emerging technology and IT service capabilities, but most of all, the actual data used by all of these. The Digital Solution Data Architect ensures that projects and products deliver cost effective, sustainable data solutions that align with the organizations strategic direction. The Solution Data Architect will be expected to develop data models and other artefacts plus influence design decisions throughout the software development lifecycle.
Key deliverables include the Solution Architecture High Level Design (“Famer Data Integration Model”) covering all necessary data models, matrices, diagrams, controls, and architectural guidance to detail the solution’s data design and enable its physical implementation.
This role ensures the business outcomes and business values are delivered by ensuring right data focused solutions are designed, delivered and implemented. This role leverages knowledge of existing portfolio and the current and emerging technologies. The role should be fully “Data Fluent”, using data consistently to generate intelligent insights and inform opportunity development and decision-making. Seeks opportunity to upskill in relevant visualisation and analytics tools.
The architect will support the activities as managed by the Global Digital Delivery manager, to maintain and implement the digital technology strategy and the digital technology architecture. The architect will work with the Technology team to ensure data availability across all applications for Data Science exploration, implementing the ‘world of the farmer’ data model for integration.
