We have already laid the foundation by launching >10 interactive reports, based on 15> sources, used by >200 users daily on our Azure cloud data platform. We now want to get to the maximum potential in terms of business value.  Because of the strategic importance we chose to insource the platform and strongly improve and expand our inhouse capabilities.

You will own the PowerBI platform of Enza. The team you will work with consists of Power BI specialists and data engineers who provide you with the required information. You will enable secure and easy-to-access, high-performance and intuitive dashboards, templates and self-service. To reach the eventual goal of self-service analytics, you will need to think about how you can scale Power BI best practices and you will oversee the education of new business users through Power BI training. You report to the Manager Smart Data platform. Your team reports to our Global Manager Data Insights & Data Innovations with whom you are on the mission to make Enza Zaden the most data savvy and data driven Breeding company in the world.
