With speed and agility we ensure HEINEKEN has the technological competitive advantages it needs to deliver on its ambition. This includes strategically important S&OP activities as driven via a multiyear program.


Technology Specialists act as a key player to enable business processes by technology. Thorough understanding of the business processes is key in this role, technology is there to enable. Usually the configuration/setup of the solutions is outsourced, hence the role isn’t hands on in terms of solution configuration. Soft skills and functional knowledge are deemed more important than in depth technical knowledge.

The role consists of mix changes, extensions and support to the existing IT solutions as well as deploying these solutions globally. The current solutions used in the S&OP domain are:


  • JDA: demand, supply incl. IO, S&OP, and flow casting
  • Infor Advanced Scheduling
  • FuturMaster: demand and supply
  • Power BI for reporting purposes, as supported by a separate team


The solutions integrate with SAP ERP and in some cases JD Edwards and Navision/Microsoft Dynamics; experience and knowledge on such integrations is required including the data related aspects of such integrations.


For Heineken the agile mind-set is centred on four principles; focus on customer value, power to the teams, start quick and smart and learn relentlessly. As a Technology Specialist you own these principles and integrate them in the daily life. Self-reflection, adaptability, collaboration and resilience come natural to you and make you thrive in an Agile environment. Engaging with these characteristics and become more self-aware of personal strengths and weaknesses, makes majors strides in development of yourself and others.
