As Head of IT Development, your role is to strengthen the IT development process and extend the team to cater for the increasing demand for deliverables whilst maintaining high service and product quality.

You will become a key player in the company’s journey towards fulfilling business goals through the increased use of IT as a differentiator. We are about to embark on the next set of significant initiatives that will extend our platform into the public cloud and gear up on internal application development, to use IT even more actively to support and develop the business.

As Head of IT Development, you will be part of the Saxo Payments IT management team, and you will report to the Head of IT & Projects.

You will be based in Copenhagen, but since we also have offices in Luxembourg and London, you should expect some travel.
