Would you like to take part in enabling Novo Nordisk’s digital transformation? Then we welcome you to be part of the global Data Management & Analytics team in Novo Nordisk.

The position

You’ll be a founding member of a cross-department team of specialists deployed on high level, complex use cases that precede infrastructure rollout across our platforms. You will take the role of developer, tester, tech writer, integration and deployment specialist. You will also act as trusted technical advisor on one or more projects within Data Management & Analytics for our business partners as well as your colleagues in the team. In collaboration with your colleagues, you will be responsible for leading and defining the end-to-end architecture of solutions, and you will be involved in the maturation of the platform.

This newly created position suits the cloud developer that loves data engineering, the DevOps specialist that loves automation.

You have a degree in engineering, software development or a relevant field and you have:

  • 5+ years’ experience working with contemporary cloud technologies, DevOps processes, and infrastructure engineering, including the integration of data lake solutions and advanced analytics
  • a background from roles in architecting and consulting
  • experience creating and implementing scalable data solutions on an enterprise scale; this means that you can design, construct, install, test and scale data management solutions.
  • hands-on experience deploying with CI/CD and working with modern build, test and deployment tools.

Finally, you are used to being in a position that combines a high-level overview with an ability to dig into the details to provide the best possible technical advice. Furthermore, you have experience working within a regulated industry or are eager to learn what that entails as complexity is a motivating factor for you.

We appreciate an entrepreneurial and collaborative mindset that matches ours enabling you to quickly identify new ways to do things, and eagerly share your knowledge with your team. You can communicate complex technical matters in a simple way to your stakeholders, so they can reach informed decisions based on your input. You can convince others to accept new concepts, practices and approaches. You thrive with working in teams where we work together to achieve common goals and where we rely on and trust each other.

The position is based at our site in Bagsværd, which is in greater Copenhagen, Denmark. We are recruiting internationally for this position; a relocation package will be provided where relevant. Since you will be working in a global environment, you must expect some meetings to take place outside Danish working hours and some travel activity. Fluent spoken and written English is a prerequisite.

The Data Management & Analytics team is an international, high performing team with a variety of technical and analytical backgrounds. Our responsibilities cover the entire data space from source systems to productionised analytical solutions, including the underlying infrastructure.
