Senior Group Manager Development
As our new Senior Group Manager Development, you will head up internal development with technical insight and a strong people focus.
Do you dream of a central role as Senior Group Manager of a department set to grow significantly over the coming years? Where you combine you interest for business and technology and where you can drive development methodology, processes, tools and platforms together with your counterpart in the R&D division?
Can you show us an impressive track record of tech savvy leadership, ability to constantly improve processes and productivity and can you document at least 5-10 years’ relevant IT experience?
If yes - keep reading! You’ll join a fast-growing company with big ambitions. Our leading open platform technology, open business model and open company culture have fueled our company for 20 years and made us a global player in the video management system industry. Here, you and your colleagues work with solutions that help organizations manage risks, protect people and assets, optimize processes and reduce costs. Welcome to the open platform company.
Build and manage your own teams – and be a value adding member of the IT leadership team.
Your agile teams are the back bone of all development and application management not directly related to Milestones’ video management system. The department will initially consist of 10 employees organized in feature teams managed by two team leads and supported by product owners. We integrate external partners in peak periods, but set an honor in keeping control. You therefore know exactly how to grow passion and motivation in a team of internal and external developers. Current plans will double the size of the organization within the next 12-18 months.
We also look forward to welcoming you to IT Leadership team, where the VP of Global IT and Operation appreciates challenging sparring and dynamic dialogues with the ambition to drive the digitalization of Milestone forward.
The present pipeline has a strong focus on our digital presence, on improving and consolidating internal systems - including standardizing and extending our Navision and Business Intelligence solutions. Milestone works in a wide range of technologies including Navision, Salesforce, and EPiServer in a Microsoft environment with significant footprint in Azure.
Born out of IT development – grown into the leadership challenge
We believe that a developer background in this position – preferably in the Microsoft stack – will be part of your success in the job. You truly understand the landscape of standard systems, internal development and application management activities. Prior experience with ERP implementation in a Navision environment will be an advantage.
Leadership experience from an international organization is required and you probably have a master’s in computer science, a related degree or equivalent practical experience. Operating with scale and speed, our world-class software engineers are just getting started - and as Group Senior Manager you guide the way.
You thrive in a high pace, informal environment with an entrepreneurial spirit and know how to combine intelligence and curiosity with superior communication skills. This helps you easily explain and sell your ideas for innovation and future development. You have experience with agile and SCRUM and are not afraid to suggest better ways of structuring our work when you spot them.
As a person, you are reliable, independent and flexible, open to new ideas and other cultures and confident communicating in English on a professional level.

We call ourselves the open platform company. That stands for three things: open platform technology, an open business model and an open company culture. Our video management software (VMS) solutions are designed with an open architecture which allows for easy integration with other security and business systems. Yet open platform encompasses so much more. It also represents an open business model with an extensive technology and channel partner network, where everyone benefits from stronger innovation and value creation for our end-customers. Our open company culture is a foundation for how we collaborate internally and conduct business and share expertise and knowledge with partners and customers.
We are a fast growing company with big ambitions. The entrepreneurial spirit that founded the company can still be seen and felt, even though today we’re a global player in the surveillance industry. We’re headquartered just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark and we have offices in more than 20 countries. We offer a flexible work environment where our employees get to define their workday and have a great deal of influence over how they use their time. We work hard, set our ambitions high and celebrate our successes together. If you are change-willing, internationally-minded and interested in growing as a professional, you’ll fit in just fine.
