Skills & Requirements

Does fostering unique and trusted relationships with great people excite you? Do you get a kick out of acquiring exciting new work for your team? Are you willing to deliver more than just projects? Is agile your way of working? If this sounds like you, please read on!

As a Futurice Business Director you’ll work alongside some of the world’s best consultants and professionals across software engineering, 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 corporations 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.

This role consists of proactive sales and account development work for existing and new clients, as well as overseeing projects and taking holistic responsibility for the health and well-being of entire customer accounts. The team is always your biggest asset and there to support you in developing customer relationships. You might also work as a project lead for agile development work and/or advisory/design assignments. When there’s an opportunity, you’ll enjoy getting involved as a hands-on consultant yourself too.

We’re looking for a person with at least some years of relevant experience. Maybe you’ve got a Master’s Degree in IT, Management, Software Production or Business. 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:

  • Experience in business development and account management

  • Preferably some experience within industrial domain / companies

  • Domain knowledge in building digital services

  • Experience in the consultancy business

  • Experience in running and coaching teams

  • Genuine curiosity towards continuous learning

  • Fluent and confident with Finnish and English as primary working languages

We expect you to understand the tech landscape and what it takes to build digital platforms, products and services for demanding clients. Experience in leading projects is beneficial too, either as a project lead/scrum master or as a product owner.

Finally, it is very important that your mindset fits with Futurice’s culture and organisation. 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 organisation. 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.
