Want to bring better thinking to people world wide?

reMarkable is a Norwegian tech company on a mission to help people think better in a distracted world. In what feels like no time at all, we've gone from a small startup to one of the fastest-growing tech scaleups in Norway.
Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME’s top 100 inventions, and our new subscription service, Connect, in 2021, we've set exciting growth and expansion goals for the coming years. To help us get there, we need new colleagues ready to make a real difference through their work.

About the role:
reMarkable has embarked on the journey of becoming a global tech company, with an ambition to help and delight customers worldwide. To reach this goal we need to be able to reach customers and users that are not English speaking. For this, localization to local language, culture and norms is needed. Localization is one of our most important growth initiatives in the upcoming period. The Senior Strategy Manager Localization will be key in realizing this potential.

The localization initiative is a cross functional and complex market expansion initiative. It needs to be managed carefully to make right strategic decisions, and to optimize value and cost along the way. We need a dedicated senior strategy manager to drive strategic decision making related to the initiative, manage the initiative from day to day, and take the initiative from its current planning stage to successful realization.

The Senior Strategy Manager Localization will take a holistic view to define and drive reMarkable’s localization initiative across products, services, value chain, branding, sales, channels and local presence. The role will move between different areas of the organization, and will lead a team of dedicated people from the various functional areas.

Tasks and responsibilities:

Evaluate the business potential of localization, and assess market opportunities to understand value, cost and complexity of various options. Align localization efforts with geographical market expansion
  • Prepare the roadmap of what to localize, how and when. Develop the overall realization plan for the localization initiative. Coordinate and follow up localization efforts across reMarkable
  • Utilize external research, people and insights to inform the appropriate localization strategy and tactical actions
  • Work together with the management team as well as functional leaders and subject matter experts to implement, operationalize and develop localization in the optimal way for reMarkable. Work across the organization to inform and support strategic and tactical decision making related to localization. Provide regular reports to leadership on localization progress and business realization
  • Responsible for the processes of content localization in newly launched markets until they are handed over to daily operations
  • Responsible for tools, processes and capabilities related to localization. Track performance in order for us to continuously improve. Build a system to systematically gather insights and data from different markets to understand how we should move on with our localization efforts
