As a Futurice Sales Director you’ll work alongside some of the world’s best professionals across data & analytics, software, design, agile culture and digital business. With your business mindset and commitment in building close, human and trusted relationships with customers you will help them to succeed in delivering outstanding impact for our clients whose standards are high. You aim to become the most important trusted advisor for your clients.
Our clients are leading Finnish and international companies in e.g. retail, logistics, communications, manufacturing, forestry and media industries. We help them to find new ways to prosper and succeed in the digital era, in an ever more rapidly changing business environment.
You will complement our existing sales team by a specific focus on data, analytics & AI topics.
Data, analytics & AI domain a key investment target at Futurice and our projects range from strategic level to overall technical data platform implementations.
In this role you will work hands-on with our data, analytics & AI sales focusing on new and existing client companies. Your core mission and target is to open new discussions and create sales leads with business, IT and financial leaders of Finnish and international companies. At the beginning your primary area of operation is Finland, but you will be part of a team building international strategy and sales action plan as well.
You are backed by our most capable data, analytics & AI experts who will co-drive leads forward with you and turn them into strategic business relationships.
We’re looking for a person with a minimum of five years of relevant experience. Maybe you’ve got a Master’s Degree in Business, Management, Software Production or IT. Or perhaps you’ve acquired equivalent skills elsewhere or in other ways.
Here are some of the things we’d expect of a strong candidate. We don’t expect you to master them all, but hopefully this guides you closer to our thoughts and needs:
- Experience in business development and account management
- Domain knowledge in building measurable business outcomes with data, analytics and AI
- Experience in working with organization's IT departments and analytics related stakeholders
- Experience in the consultancy business
- Understanding of the tech landscape and what it takes to build digital platforms, products and services for demanding clients
- Genuine curiosity towards continuous learning
- Fluent and confident with Finnish and English as primary working languages. Swedish is considered an additional asset.
Finally, it is very important that your mindset fits with Futurice’s culture and organization. That doesn’t mean we’re all the same. In fact it’s the opposite. You’ll need to be comfortable as an excellent team player in our highly social, silo-free and transparent organization. We’ve removed – or never had – many boxes, constraints or restrictive functional roles and we’d like someone who is ready to thrive in a work culture that values freedom and mutual trust.
