Does fostering unique and trusted relationships excite you? Do you get a kick out of winning exciting new work for your team? Is agile your way of working? If this sounds like you, please read on!
As a Futurice Key Account Manager you’ll work alongside some of the world’s best consultants and professionals across software engineering, design, agile culture and digital business. With your commercial mindset and commitment to building close, human customer relationships, you’ll deliver outstanding impact and long-term value for our clients. You will work to become the most important trusted advisory for your clients.
You’ll play a big role in developing one of the biggest accounts of Futurice by pro-actively initiating, finding and winning new and exciting projects within the client. Furthermore, you are also leading the efforts of extending the strategic engagements within the client and positioning Futurice as a more strategic partner within the client.
We work with leading international corporations across all sectors, including mobility, financial services, insurance, energy, logistics, manufacturing and publishing. We help them to find new ways to change, prosper and succeed in a rapidly changing business environment.
This role consists of proactive sales and account development work, mainly for one existing key client, as well as overseeing projects and holistic responsibility for the health of the account and the project team. The team is your biggest asset. 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.
We’re looking for someone with several years’ experience in the German market. 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. We’d be particularly interested in those with experience working with or around software development, design, data science or agile development work.
It could be none of those things – tell us why you’re the right person. We’re listening.
Here are some of the things we’d expect of a strong candidate:
One Nice-to-have would be excellent. Two would blow our minds. Three may bring us to tears. Your superpower is not on the list? Surprise and convince us!
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. The most important experience for this role is creating and closing project opportunities by listening close to the clients’ problems and goals.
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.
We are proud of our lean, flat organization and distinctive organizational culture – one that has been selected as the best place to work in Europe twice. Besides our people and our culture that has been awarded internationally, we have even more multiple benefits for you:
You think this is enough? We have even more!
