Hitachi Energy’s Transformer division generates approximately 60% of all Hitachi Energy revenue and is the global leader in industrial transformer engineering and manufacturing. Our transformers are sold in over 100 countries and are used for a variety of applications including power generation, transmission and distribution, metals and mining, oil and gas, commercial and infrastructure projects, and mobility. With the increasing complexity in the grid as we move through the energy transition to more sustainable, renewable sources, our transformers are also increasingly used for improving power quality and network management.

As part of our growth strategy, Hitachi Energy is currently engaged in a multi-year project (Reiwa) to upgrade our core ERP systems to SAP S/4HANA, standardize our IT application landscape and digitize our business processes to meet the needs of our expanding business.

In this role, you will use your deep knowledge of the SAP platform and best practices, as well as your IT project management skills, to drive strategic initiatives in the Hitachi Energy transformers factories to improve productivity and implement standard processes across our factory and service network.

Contribute to and execute the technology vision for the SAP Platform and work with business partners to propose enhancements to support overall business strategy.
  • Lead cross-functional project teams in the delivery of critical projects which require end to end process and technical expertise based on best practices, business process and SAP expertise.
  • Provide oversight and guidance to the SAP user community through ongoing training, support and development of SAP training materials; guiding and partnering with SAP user community to ensure ongoing and effective use of the application and supporting tools.
