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

We are looking for a Senior Business Development Director with several years of relevant experience in a software engineering company to join our team in Helsinki or Tampere!

Our clients are leading Finnish and international corporations in retail, energy, logistics, manufacturing, forestry, healthcare, media, and public sector organisations. We help our clients to find new ways to prosper and succeed in the digital transformation in an ever more rapidly changing operating environment.

You advise and lead client engagements and drive company sales activities in this role. Your days consist of business development and proactive sales work for existing and new clients, overseeing projects, and taking holistic responsibility for the health and well-being of our clients. The team is always your biggest asset and supports you in developing customer relationships.

As a key team member, 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.

Here are some things we expect of a strong candidate:

  • Several years of experience in advising and leading client engagements and driving company sales activities in a software engineering company

  • Several years of experience in business development, account management, and selling consultative business in a software engineering company

  • Experience within industrial domain/companies OR public sector and healthcare sector

  • Domain knowledge in building digital services

  • Experience in running and coaching teams

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

Finally, it is essential that your mindset fits with Futurice’s culture and organization and that you have a genuine curiosity about continuous learning and improvement. That doesn’t mean we’re all the same. 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 ready to thrive in a work culture that values freedom and mutual trust.

We are a people-first company and believe that happy people are the key to great software and satisfied clients. With us, you get the opportunity to work with the most motivated and multi-talented forces in technology, design, and strategy.
