Job Content

We are looking for an enthusiastic senior IT Project Manager to structure, improve and promote our Logistic processes throughout our EMEA company. We make use of a centralized SAP ERP system that is migrated to S/4HANA in August 2022.


After a training period accompanied by the company value guidelines, you will:

    In doing so, you take our “project management methodology” into account to deliver high-quality IT solutions towards business. This also includes the presence of clear documentation and a proper hand-over to our IT Operations Team (RUN).
  • You will coordinate, analyse & implement improvement requests in your area of expertise in close cooperation with your business peers, internal IT colleagues and our offshore team.

  • You will explore the future evolutions within the Logistics domain (Eg. AI, Big Data, API, Fiori,…). You are keen to think about the next years strategy and translate this into a roadmap. During this process, you will need to study, plan and drive innovation, collaborate with experts, find business cases and bring our strategy into reality.


Together with your colleagues, we see you as a main driver to digitalize and improve our Logistic processes within an EMEA context.


  • You have a master degree as economist, engineer, computer scientist or equal.
  • You have 3+ relevant experience.
  • You have an analytical & innovative spirit and interest in our company’s need to grow & accelerate.

  • You have the necessary self-discipline to make and follow-up a planning.
  • You are a team player and try to establish and keep a good relationship with both your IT and business colleagues.
  • You have good communication skills and are not afraid to present to groups.
  • You are prepared to occasionally travel to Daikin group companies in EMEA.
  • You have a very good knowledge of English and Dutch.
