What is your role?

Lely has set a goal to undergo a digital transformation and to work as data-driven as possible. This applies to all parts of the company: from Finance, Product Development, HR, to our international departments.

As a Coordinating Data Steward, you will contribute to laying a data foundation to ensure that more value is extracted from data organization-wide. Additionally, you will oversee the overall process.

In addition to being an ambassador, you are also the knowledge bearer to increase maturity around data usage. Therefore, you will act as a sounding board for the data domain owner, data product owners, and the business data stewards. It's a particularly dynamic and diverse role!

The challenge lies in providing tailored advice, as each client has different needs and different data available to them. It's your task to advise clients on how to elevate their data to a higher level, aiming to realize more business value.

Within the Data Governance Team, you will collaborate with other Coordinating Data Stewards, each with their own specialization and ambassadorship. You will specialize in data quality. You will be the one helping the organization understand data quality so that everyone can determine if the data is 'fit for purpose' and know how to improve it.

In the background, you can rely on the knowledge of the Data Governance team, the technical expertise of data engineers, analysts, architects, and integration specialists throughout the organization.

Do you want to be one of the driving forces behind our digital transformation, with the ultimate goal of furthering both the farmer and the cow? Then, respond quickly!

What is your experience?

As a Coordinating Data Steward specializing in Data Quality, you excel as a Digital Transformation ambassador through diplomacy, along with possessing strong interpersonal and technical skills. You enjoy reaching out to colleagues from other departments and can swiftly piece together a data puzzle. Moreover, you have the ability to clearly articulate the best strategy in your own way. Additionally, you contribute to shaping, improving, and implementing our data quality strategy.


  • Completed Bachelor's degree.
  • Five years of relevant work experience.
  • Proficient in English (speaking, reading, writing).
  • Experience with data analysis, dashboarding, and data quality measurements.
  • Knowledge and experience with SQL and Python.

We offer..
