Sounds good? Then read on to find out if this could be your next career move.
As Senior Manager, six competent specialists will report directly to you, and you will play an integral role in product change management related to new products and non-standard requests. This requires you to communicate and engage with stakeholders on all levels to make sure goals are met and tasks carried out.
Furthermore, it will be up to you to anchor the commitment in your team, so the team as a whole will meet expectations and make the most of opportunities that arise.
As a part of the management team in VMS, you will work closely with R&D, production, technical market support, sales, operations, and supply, and you will be the natural go-to technical person in relation to the standard product program.
Everything in the job leads to the ultimate goal of VELUX Modular Skylights: To improve buildings across the world. This applies when you work with technical product management, documentation, bill of materials, master data and packaging configurators.
Among other relevant tasks you will find:

Perhaps you even have experience from a similar position as senior manager, technical product manager or specifications manager.
Your skillset includes e.g. construction, master data, configurators or bill of materials. But most of all, you understand the factors that influence a market driven organisation, and you never lose sight of the actual usage of the products and the way they contribute to the lives of our customers.
On a more personal level, your initiative, drive and sense of perspective is shown in the way you manage your team. You run it as a small business, and you are not afraid of bringing new ideas and processes to the table to challenge status quo when you see opportunities for creating better results.
You take pride in your communication skills and your proficiency in Excel, PowerPoint, SAP and other relevant tools. You are fully proficient in English.
