This type of information is pivotal in creating transparency; what kind of customers we are serving, in which segments we are active, which product groups we are selling and how the customers are using our products. This insight is very valuable to many stakeholders in our business, and to our growth agenda. 


This role will organize and ensure that this global standard is embedded in the business and is actively being maintained, as well as design and implement future reporting solutions.

Developing strong knowledge of the data and the growth agenda is a critical requirement to drive this full implementation. The Business Analyst needs to demonstrate a proactive mindset, be willing to take on challenges, and be ready to influence process and organizational change. 


Additional responsibility for this role includes becoming a subject matter expert on Bunge’s commercial data, while demonstrating the technical expertise to ensure the accuracy and quality of the data. This role will work with the business to understand needs for actionable insights and provides analysis to help make business decision.
