Job Description/Requirements


Do you want to work for a leading and international company where you have room for input and a good working atmosphere is a priority? Then we have the job for you at Florensis! 

Within the ornamental horticulture industry, Florensis is a market leader in breeding and supplying high-quality starting material for professional growers. Florensis operates internationally, with most of the sales taking place in Europe. Moreover, we are continuously looking for new markets. The organization has, in addition to its head office in The Netherlands, various sales and production locations in Africa and Europe. Worldwide Florensis has 2,500 employees. 

IT plays a crucial role in realizing our growth ambitions. That is why we are looking for a new IT colleague to support the East-African locations and will be based at our Kenyan location. Would you like to use your knowledge in a fast, dynamic environment and are you the customer-oriented and flexible Business Process Engineer we are looking for? Then we see a match!


What will you do?

Hierarchically you will report to the General manager of Florensis Kenya, functionally you are reporting to our manager IM&ICT in the Netherlands. You will be responsible for IT related process optimisation for all our African production locations (1 in Kenya and 3 in Ethiopia). You will optimize processes within the ERP system PAT, focusing on topics such as mother-stock/production planning, production registration and quality management.

In the next years PAT will be migrated from old software code to new software code (.NET). You will have an important role in testing this modernized application and training/helping users in using it. Production automation such as scanners, tablets, and printers are increasingly being used at our locations. You have an important role in the management and further implementation of this production automation.

For processes and software requests which cannot be handled in our standard ERP system you will write functional and technical designs for the development of tailor-made software.

These projects will be integrated in the overall IT roadmap and will be prioritized based on the business case (cost/benefits) which must be part of the functional design.

You are the first point of contact for end-users in case of problems with applications and ensure that these problems are resolved. 

For all tasks described above you will work in close collaboration with the end users on our production locations in Kenya and Ethiopia and the central IT team in the Netherlands 

In short, we are looking for a flexible and stress-resistant professional who enjoys these varied tasks.
