The IT function at Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is responsible for all IT services across the business area. We provide true ownership and governance of common processes and IT systems, and ensure successful delivery aligned with business needs – always with continuous improvement on top of mind. We’re now looking for a Solution Architect for MDM to join our team of talented experts in a fast-paced and international environment. Welcome to a challenging role where you get to work close to our core business and have great opportunities to grow – both personally and professionally!

Join the exciting world of Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology
Our constantly evolving offering of equipment and tools, service and technical solutions for mining and rock excavation covers rock drilling, rock cutting, crushing and screening, loading and hauling, tunneling, quarrying and breaking and demolition. No matter the terrain, material or ground hardness – we aim to engineer solutions that make mining and rock excavation safer and more profitable. Bringing your experience and drive into the equation, you help us achieve our goals!

Your mission – transforming business needs into high quality solutions

In this role, you translate business needs into technical requirements, and you offer guidance for designs, development and implementation to ensure a best practice delivery. You propose high level solution outlines and create cost estimates for new requirements and, by creating clearly defined instructions and structured documentation, you track and control our technical project scopes. Collaborating with stakeholders, developers and architects at our different IT departments to drive and coordinate resolution of complex work items is an important part of your job, and you’re responsible for the delivery of service towards the business. By motivating, guiding and training your colleagues, you also contribute to a team that ensures high quality and on-time delivery!

The preferred location for this position is in Tampere (Finland) although Sandviken or Stockholm (Sweden) could also be considered as possible options. Some global travel is a natural part of your job.

Your character – enthusiastic problem solver with a passion for data, integration and development

We’re looking for someone with a relevant university degree or equivalent knowledge gained from work experience. You have solid understanding of MDM and data quality practices and methodologies, along with knowledge of the SAP Enterprise Information Management platform or comparable platforms. You also have good skills in data and process modelling and the ability to understand and articulate the role of various intersecting technologies such as integration, analytics, big data and cloud. As we act on the global stage, you need to be fluent in English.

The ideal candidate should have been involved in one or multiple full cycle MDM implementations and have experience in key data domains such as Customer, Supplier and Material. Furthermore, some experience in, or knowledge of the following areas is a big advantage:

  • Microsoft Azure Integration Services (Logic Apps, Service Bus, API Management, Event Grid, Functions etc.)
  • Microsoft Azure Analytics (DWH, Databricks, Data Factory, Data Lake, Analysis Services, Stream, Event Hub etc.)

Your personality excites us! You’re a confident professional and have the tenacity to move forward, even in times of organizational challenges. You have solid business acumen and an understanding of business processes and issues across multiple domains. With your excellent problem-solving skills and an analytical mind, you are also skilled in balancing theory and practical reality.

At Sandvik, we believe that diversity of experience, perspective and background will lead to a better environment for our employees, our business and, thereby, our customers.
