Over the years we’ve built a solid continuous services business in Finland, called Futucare. Futucare focuses on continuous services and small feature development of the services we have built for our clients. We’ve also accompanied it with SRE & Cloud infrastructure team as well as Service Desk capability. At the moment Futucare is a team of around 30 professionals.
Going forward we see Futucare evolving towards more holistic product management offering combining product management, continuous business value exploration, continuous services, cloud management as well as small feature development type of work.
Now we are looking for a person to make this evolution reality and lead Futurice’s continuous product management offering globally!
Your role and responsibilities

In some years time we expect this to be one of our major global offering/business areas!
The Global Head of Continuous Services will work together with the core team, our global product team and local country businesses, account teams and delivery teams.
This is what we believe are key things in the future in the field of managed services, and hope you see and supplement our vision too:
Focus should be on the long-term business value, high level of automation and transparency, not just people behind tickets
When done right, managed services build long-term business value and maximize ROI for made investments
Success and value creation in continuous services happen in the intersection of business and IT
A wide range of expertise is needed from Product Management & Business Design to Service Desk, SRE, cloud/infra and small feature development

Most importantly, you have the vision on what it takes to deliver continuous services in a modern way, and ability to turn this vision into offering and go-to-market strategy as part of Futurice’s whole offering framework!
In addition, we appreciate:
Experience from global working environment & how to get results in network organization
Experience from working with IT departments and collaborating CIOs
Experience form continuous services business models and contracts
Willingness to do hands-on sales / go-to-market work together with local account teams
Understanding of public cloud, infra, information security as well as SRE (site reliably engineering) foundations is definitely a plus
Prior experience from building own IPR to support / complement consultancy services is a plus
