Picture yourself in the field
As a member of one of our digital and technology teams, you’ll get to build cutting-edge technologies and help create the digitalized industry of tomorrow. Below are some examples of projects your future colleagues have been working on.
“With One Pulse, employees can help us shape a better working place”
Sometimes, even the smallest project can have a defining impact on multinational companies like Solvay. When Irene, Global Product Manager in HR Technologies at Solvay, started working on an employee sentiment survey in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, little did she know that this project would eventually help improve Solvay’s management over the long term.
“One Pulse was initially conceived as a one-off survey, to take the pulse of the organization and provide Solvay leaders with insights on how to better help employees navigate the crisis. But it has now become much more than that,” Irene explains.
Every six weeks, Irene gets to coordinate a new One Pulse survey and gathers feedback from Solvay employees across the world. Questions revolve around the likes of wellbeing, inclusion or Solvay’s sustainability commitments, and the answers are used by Solvay leaders to shape new campaigns and initiatives. “I worked with an amazing group of people and together we planted a seed that keeps flourishing to this day. This is very rewarding,” Irene enthuses.
“We’re enabling ‘augmented researchers’ thanks to digital products”
From researcher in chemistry to digital innovator, there is but one step. This is perhaps Laurianne’s main takeaway from her experience working on Solvay’s Datagrow project. “Datagrow takes 45 years of research expertise in agrochemical formulations and centralizes it into a single web application. We’re making a real difference in the acceleration of Solvay’s innovation,” she enthuses.
As Product Owner, Laurianne could lead the Datagrow development team and learn how to bridge the two worlds of chemical research and digitalization. “Chemists and digital people do not speak the same language, but we have to understand each other to develop powerful tools and advanced data science algorithms for researchers,” she explains. “With Datagrow, developing agrochemical formulations will be less time intensive, and our researchers will be able to focus on emerging markets like biocontrol.”
The Datagrow application is continuously maintained and improved through regular upgrades.
