Wat ga je doen?

You will join the IT department of Parcels and Logistics where all our logistics software data processes, models and algorithms run. The goal of the department is to support improved forecasting, insight and decisions so that we can achieve excellent logistics and maximum customer satisfaction.
Within PostNL, we want to optimally plan and control our supply chain. Here, chain-wide control of all planning in the process chain (collection, sorting, transshipment and distribution) is of great importance. The e-commerce packages we deliver are placed for delivery until late in the evening. This means that the exact input for our operational process chain is not available until our manpower, sorting and trip schedules have long been made.
This is why we pay a lot of attention to prediction models, but our planning models are also crucial. They have to lead to efficient results, but also have to be robust to deviations in the package supply and remain usable during operational disruptions.
As Lead Developer Supply Chain Planning, you will develop the best plan models for our chain with a multidisciplinary team of business and data specialists. 


Your tasks will include: 

  • Provide direction to the DevOps team, taking substantive technical decisions and acting as a mentor/coach to the Developers; 
  • You take on various use cases and seek answers to complex issues relating to customer solutions and the architecture;
  • Co-building technical solutions made in, among others, Python, PySpark on AWS-native, serverless services; 
  • Working closely with Product Owners, Architects, Data Specialists and stakeholders in implementing data solutions according to the CI/CD method. 
  • Ensuring optimal scalability using AWS Cloud technology; 
  • Expanding and advancing our engineering culture;  
  • Working closely with different Scrum teams, platforms, stakeholders, supply chain partners, and suppliers; 
  • Ensuring close interaction with team members and key business users. 

Onze ambitie

  • Higher education or University background;

  • Experience in various programming languages such as Java and Python (preference). Knowledge and experience with IOT within an AWS Cloud Native environment is a plus.
  • Stakeholder management has no secrets for you.
