Data Utilization Driver

Linköping, Sweden
Closing date: 7 October 2022

“Data is the new oil”, a resource that can be extracted and refined to provide a valuable asset. However, not all deposits of oil are worth our time or needs to be refined to the highest quality. The challenge is to uncover valuable data assets with minimum risk of spending time and resources – to end up with just a data swamp.

Your role

Center of Excellence (CoE) Data Utilization has the mission to act as a hub and catalyst in supporting the organization with transformation towards a Data-Driven culture. The CoE will identify and empower data-driven initiatives, assisting with e.g.

  • Data platform,
  • Information security,
  • Business cases,

while champion the long-term goal for the business.

Work will be divided between business wide tasks and close collaboration with selected initiatives. An example of a wide task could be to discuss how to handle information minimizing risk from security perspective while maximizing value for the business (e.g. value of data-driven insights or data availability). Supporting initiatives is thought to be an incubator, from the CoE, thus working together for some time to enable the team with their goal. In general it is expected that the assignment is a majority processes, strategies and business cases, while whatever remains could be actual modelling, data wrangling or coding tasks.

You will be part of a small team of champions working on tasks cross Aeronautics. Together with IT and Security functions you will be a part of forming our joint capability to become data-driven.
