What is your role?

As a Junior Application Expert, you play a crucial role in the team of application experts, closely collaborating with solution architects. Together, you are responsible for problem-solving, maintaining, and implementing new processes across our ERP system and integrated systems. You are proactive and capable of quickly analyzing urgent issues to arrive at effective solutions. Additionally, you provide well-considered advice on daily financial processes or during project participation. You share responsibility for configuring, building, and maintaining financial business processes in our ERP application Infor M3 and various financial applications, all aimed at ensuring the financial flows within Lely run as effectively and efficiently as possible.

You will work alongside experienced colleagues who will guide and train you as needed until you can independently perform your tasks. In addition to ongoing development and maintenance of the application, you maintain close contact with Finance key-users. You partially provide training and assist them when they encounter difficulties. Questions come in via the Topdesk ticketing system, which you or the team address.

Through comprehensive onboarding and with the help of colleagues, you will increasingly be able to perform these tasks independently. Opportunities for internal and external training to fulfill your current role or pursue further ambitions within Lely and continue your personal development are available. Initially, this is a junior role with significant growth potential; in the long term, you may also progress to other areas within the organization. This, of course, depends on your performance, experience, and ambitions.
