SAP EWM Senior Application Analyst

Full-time, 38 hours a week, Zwaagdijk-Oost

Do you want to play an important role in managing, developing and improving applications used within the Action supply chain? Do you want to optimise and stabilise the logistics processes in various applications used throughout the supply chain? If so, you could be the (Senior) Application Analyst we're looking for.

As an Application Specialist, you will manage and develop applications such as SAP EWM, transport applications and the voice picking solution. You will support existing and new functionalities and write functional designs for software, hardware, planning, testing, implementation, releases and roll-outs. You will also contribute to the roll-out and migrations of new distribution centres, and you will be involved in the continuous improvement and optimisations within the IT departments. 

Your daily tasks

You will be the expert in the functional understanding of the applications mentioned and how the business uses them. The main focus is on functional application management for multiple applications within the logistics domain. That means working with Technology vendors to ensure we can handle growth, translating business requirements into application requirements, and analysing problems. 

You will analyse the impact of changes and ensure the successful implementation of the change requests together with the suppliers involved. You will set priorities, determine testing and training requirements, and evaluate whether implementation in standard software is possible. 

Your team

Action provides a dynamic working environment and is made up of committed, cost-conscious, customer-oriented and culturally diverse people. We enjoy working as a team and live our corporate values with simplicity in everything we do. Our Technology department adds value with centralised teams for Enterprise Architecture, IT Project & Portfolio Management, Development & Operations and multiple Business Technology (BizTech) teams.

Within the BizTech team for Supply Chain, Buying, Merchandise and Finance, we implement the initiatives on the technology roadmap and use technology to support our business objectives.

As a Warehousing & Transport Application Specialist, you will be involved in these initiatives and consult with your team, your business counterpart, solution architects and the service delivery manager on how we ensure an optimal solution for our users.

You will report to the Supply Chain Service Delivery Manager and work at the international headquarters in Zwaagdijk. Your colleagues look forward to working with you!

What you offer

You have knowledge of retail and all business processes. You are self-confident, have good communication skills and show leadership. You are organised in your work, meet agreed deadlines and work in accordance with the following guidelines. You are results-orientated and take a pragmatic approach to your work. You handle time pressure well and you work effectively both independently and in a team. 

You also have the following:

  • You have completed higher professional education, preferably in information technology 
  • At least 5 years' relevant work experience in IT 
  • Knowledge of SAP EWM, logistics processes and transport processes
  • You are fluent in Dutch and English, both spoken and written
  • You are a team player

What we offer

Quite a lot, actually! From our bustling headquarters in the Netherlands, you'll have an impact across the whole of Europe. We're now up to more than 2,000 stores in 10 countries and millions of smiles from our customers – and we're not stopping there, with big growth ambitions for both Action and you. Because our growth means that you can always take new steps to develop as a professional, whether that's a new job, an interesting innovation project or new skills. And you can do all this in a culture where our shared values of discipline, respect, teamwork, customer focus, cost-consciousness and simplicity are lived day in, day out.

You can also count on Action for the following:

  • A 38-hour working week
  • 24 days' holiday and the option to buy 5 additional days

  • 15% staff discount on your purchases at Action 
  • A good pension scheme, collective health insurance and travel expenses allowance 

How we contribute to society

If you only know Action from the stores, a new world will open up for you when you join us. As an example, we're working hard behind the scenes to make a positive impact on society and the environment. Did you know, for example, that we sponsor more than 1,737 children worldwide who are growing up in an SOS Children's Village? Or that our team reflects the diversity of our customers, representing 124 nationalities? Or that 70% of our wood products and 86% of our cotton already comes from sustainable sources? Or that we only use energy-efficient LED lighting in more than half of our stores? Yes, that's Action, too. If you're curious about what other initiatives we're taking, join our team and see for yourself.
