Lesaffre Digital & Data ambitions 

Lesaffre’s Digital & Data journey started some years’ ago with a strong push to encourage and cross-fertilize initiatives across the organization. Business impact of some of these first actions (Sales efficiency tools, My Lesaffre App for Bakers, digitalization of key operations etc…) have confirmed the importance of accelerating this journey.

Digital & Data are to become a fundamental transformative force for Lesaffre growth. On one hand, as a lever to increase customer centricity and user experience. On the other, to bring operational excellence across the company.

More concretely, some of these opportunities are: 

  • Further empower salesforce & leverage digital marketing to capture, convert and keep our future and current clients and consumers  
  • Leverage omnichannel strategies to sell, serve and delight our customers
  • Turn our industrial operations even more intelligent and efficient (digitalization of processes, automatization of low added value tasks, industrial productivity, supply chain performance …)
  • Contribute to unlocking further value and efficiency on R&D processes
  • Empowering transversal functions to deliver better user experiences

To accelerate this journey, a substantial additional effort is being put in place. The recent arrival of a Chief Digital & Data Officer (ExCom member) has marked the beginning of this acceleration. With a more structured and results oriented journey, CD&D officer is creating a new organisation. Data and Tech is at the heart of the transformation. A Data and Tech Factory has been created to valorise Lesaffre’s data assets, and deliver use cases, governance capacities, and innovation. Both embedded in the Business and at a Global level, digital & data talents will be crucial to this transformative journey both in the impact to business as well as the development of D&D capabilities.

In this context, Lesaffre is recruiting a Cloud Ops Data Engineer
