Subject Matter Expert, SAP Data Governance
You know SAP. You know data. But do you know about this great new job at Winshuttle?
By now, regular readers are well aware of Winshuttle, the SAP-solutions company that’ s growing, growing, growing.
I’ ve just learned they’ re looking for an Enterprise Solutions Manager for Data Governance. This new role will report to the VP of Solutions Marketing, and will be based at company HQ in Bothell – though with a LOT of travel. The company estimates that the position will be on the road 50 percent of the time, including several overseas trips.
There’ s a very good reason why Winshuttle would want this to be a highly mobile role: SAP is at the heart of its operations, and the person chosen for this position is going to do a lot of presenting and selling to SAP users who rely on the efficient management of vast troves of data.
As a matter of fact, this position will be part of Winshuttle’ s growing Solutions Marketing team, which is responsible for positioning the company as a thought leader in the sector. That means a lot of time presenting and writing about SAP for audiences of current customers, potential customers, industry analysts, and Winshuttle’ s own internal workforce.
Unsurprisingly, this role requires substantial experience (8+ years) with data-governance programs and initiatives, specifically in the context of companies running on SAP.
The company would like to see a bachelor’ s degree in business, and ideally an MBA. Strong skills in written and verbal communication are an absolute must.
If this very intriguing position looks like a potential match for you or someone you know, give me a shout.
PS From PSP: Let’ s talk for a moment about the subject that has seemingly been everywhere over the last several weeks – sexual harassment.
As we’ ve seen from the many revelations that have been coming out, a lot of harassment occurs in the workplace context. As a human-relations professional – and as a woman – I think it’ s important that we all be far more mindful of the potential for harassment and abuse in hiring practices and in everyday office life.
Above all, it’ s vital that companies send an unambiguously clear message that such behaviors cannot and will not be tolerated. I’ ve built my career on the idea that everyone deserves a workplace that brings out the best in them. At the very least, that includes a workplace where all employees – and, for that matter, all prospective employees – can feel that their physical safety and autonomy is respected at all times.
To be honest, it’ s amazing that we even have to be having this conversation in 2017. But clearly, we do. And until every woman and man can work without fear of abuse, it’ s a conversation that will continue. ###
