In Novo Nordisk we drive our business to the benefit of patients. To bring innovative treatments to as many patients worldwide as possible, we consider expanding our API manufacturing capacities to support the company portfolio of future oral and injectable pharmaceuticals. We investigate how to establish new, ground-breaking biotech facilities based on modern technology with fully automated operations and digitalised processes.

The position
As a Master Data Engineer, you will support the creation of basic data and master data in the different systems. This is not a typical Master Data position, you will start at the design phase as part of the logistics team, which means that you will collaborate with users and team members to obtain the information to create basic data. Your goal is to ensure standardization in the logistics system structure.

We work in a big project, so we need your best cross-functional skills to interact with the different stakeholders from different functions like Logistics, IT, Automation, Robotics, Processes and Raw Material Professionals. We also need to have continuous coordination with your other colleagues in the logistics team that will be working in similar topics in the same project. It is key that you are curious and have a high attention to details and quality.

The position will be transitioning from basic data creation to master data creation according to the project stages.


To be successful in this role, we are looking for a candidate with the following qualifications:

  • Some years of experience working with ERP or Warehouse Management systems, with a preference for experience with SAP EWM. Other relevant systems could be SAP, D365, Oracle, IFS, AX, SAP 4HANNA.
  • Strong expertise in master data creation.
  • Bachelor's degree in a relevant field.
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to collaborate effectively with stakeholders.
  • Fluent in English.

Furthermore, you can work collaboratively with users and logistics professionals to gather information and create data. You have a clear understanding of warehouse structures and logistics tasks are able to create basic data for different warehouses and logistics systems. It is important that you have a good understanding of the systems infrastructure where data is created.

Collaboration is key in this role, and you will work with cross-functional teams, including internal consultants, other professionals, and project managers.

On a personal level, you enjoy close teamwork and working in a big project. You thrive in a multicultural environment that demands independence to make critical decisions. Building structure comes naturally to you and you enjoy simplifying wherever simplicity can benefit reaching the right goals faster.
