SAP Basis Solution Architect


LEO Pharma has embarked on a very ambitious journey to become the world’s preferred dermatology care partner – and that is why they need you.

The journey will encompass increased digitalization, acquisitions and planned transformations which all require strong architectural involvement and direction-setting.

To be able to support the above in a professional manner and to work on LEO Pharma’s existing and future huge project portfolio, they are strengthening their Technology, Architecture and Innovation department (TAI) in Global IT. In this connection, they have great focus on data and on increasing their overall capabilities.

Now and in the years to come they are designing, developing and implementing SAP across all business and productions units globally.

If you can bring solid experience within handling SAP Basis in Hybrid landscapes with on-premise and Cloud solutions where cloud is expected to play an even larger role in the future, and you are looking for a Solution Architect opportunity in which you will be responsible for defining, controlling and handling basis-tasks in an outsourced set-up, here’s a unique opportunity. Responsibility, exciting challenges, on-going development and massive impact are guaranteed.

Architect for LEO Pharma SAP Basis
Based in their Application Architecture team your focus is to be part of running, designing and building the basis-architecture of SAP across LEO Pharma.

The day to day handling of SAP Basis is outsourced to an external partner. As such, you will work on a higher level and bridge the Leo SAP Basis architecture needs by guiding the vendor. You will be responsible for a stable and documented process for running SAP Basis and related tasks in Leo, and for guiding Architects and Projects in how to include Basis issues in changes and projects

Across all of your tasks it is vital that you ensure consistent compliance with the overall solution architecture of their SAP solution.

Solid experience with SAP Basis
You have at least five years of experience from working with SAP Basis solutions, optimally in hybrid landscapes with integrated on-premise and cloud solutions. Experience with running SAP on Windows will also be an advantage, as it would be to have experience with HANA platform (as Leo is running SAP BI and SAP ECC on HANA) and SAP Cloud Platform. You have a good understanding of infrastructure set-up and have been working with Batch Job control, System refresh’s etc.

Founded within your business acumen you can identify needs and improvements, conceptualize and communicate proposals for changes – and coordinate development and implementation with external consultants.

As Solution Architect and gatekeeper you will need a certain level of authority including the ability to back your decisions with solid and easy-understandable arguments. In combination with your understanding of the mechanisms in a large organization you know when to stand your ground and when to compromise (in dialogue with very strong stakeholder personalities in high level positions). As you will work in an organization in rapid development you must thrive in an environment where the only constant is change. This require stamina and energy.
