Xebia is a Global Digital and IT consultancy that came to the market 20 years ago, far ahead of the curve on the Digital Transformation. Being so long on the market has allowed Xebia build a profound expertise across the board, from software development, IT architecture, DevOps, Cloud and Cybersecurity, to building Data Driven and Agile organizations with the sole purpose of helping organizations make most of the value promised by technology. As the digital ambitions of our clients grow, so is Xebia looking to scale and use its experience to create ever more value, moving the needle on the success of Digital and Agile Transformations at the prime companies in the Netherlands like ING, Unilever, Philips, Bol.com, Ahold, Schiphol, Elsevier, Heineken, Grandvision, Keylane, NXP, KPN and Shell.
Xebia is looking for experienced and hands-on, pragmatic and no-nonsense Digital Transformation & Business Agility consultants with a strong track record in delivering large scale Digital & Agile Transformations at companies mentioned above or similar, who can align strategy, operating model, and IT architecture with execution – from Diagnosing and Designing, to Executing Digital Transformations with a strong focus on upskilling the workforce to stay relevant in a fast paced and ever changing market and improving (Leadership) Agility to make a profound and lasting change.
As Xebia Digital & Agile Transformation consultant, you will be involved in working on client challenges related to, e.g.:
Digital & Agile Maturity Assessments
Designing Digital Strategy (Data, IT, Cloud, Agile)
Fixing the organizational eco-system (Environment, culture & behaviour)
We believe each Xebia Digital & Agile Transformation Consultant should be able to have sufficient experience to do the majority of the above. We also believe they should have one strong core set of skills in which they can add most value.
One such set of skills is combined in the role we are currently looking for: Data & Cloud Transformation Consultant.
It is becoming commonly accepted that data is important and public cloud can deliver much value. Our clients are embracing data and cloud but often have difficulties defining a good strategy (data strategy and/or cloud strategy) and/or effectively executing on the strategy while developing the required new capabilities. We are looking for experienced consultants that can help answer our clients’ key questions:
Key Questions for Data & AI strategy
What is the value of data and AI in my industry and for my organization?
How do I identify and unlock the value of data?
What organizational capabilities do I need to deliver value with data?
How do I enhance operations, products, services or decision making with data and AI?
What Cloud strategy fits
Key Questions for Cloud Transformation
What is my Cloud strategy and how do I govern and manage costs?
What delivery model fits with my strategy and do I go single or multi-cloud?
What does my Cloud roadmap look like? What workloads will I move, when and how?
And on top of these questions clients ask us to help them implement data, AI and cloud strategies. We do this by working closely together with our data engineers and scientists and cloud engineers from the Xebia-labels GoDataDriven and Binx.
