With the e-Shop, we aim to simplify that sourcing experience, empowering teams across the globe to shop POSM the same way they would shop online for their personal needs, sharing best practices across brands and markets, benchmarking POSM prices and supplier capabilities whilst driving sustainable purchase behaviours.

This e-Shop is being built in what we called an Agile manner – developing and deploying the e-Shop in incremental steps, taking into consideration the feedback from the users as we go. That process is being managed by a ‘product team’ led by a Product Owner (PO), who you will be work with.

During your internship, you will be supporting the PO with the deployment of the shop globally, engaging and collaborating with the users to understand their needs, pain points and supporting the team with enabling new functionalities of the e-Shop based on the user feedback.

More concretely you will:

  • Support deployment of the e-Shop in 16 new countries and track their progress
  • Work with the users to drive adoption of the e-Shop (through engaging communication, creating learning sharing opportunities for current users, etc.)
  • Support users with ongoing demand and questions
  • Collect user feedback and identify new features to develop within the e-Shop
  • Manage our Community of Practice and communications within a variety if channels
  • Analyse e-Shop usage and identify new opportunities

During your internship you will get the opportunity to get to know HEINEKEN as a company and work with various countries. We give you the trust and freedom, so you can work like a real entrepreneur.
