Senior Director for Road IT
Are you ready to maintain and drive IT and digitalisation forward for DSV Road, ensuring we meet our 2025 strategic goals? And do you want to be responsible for a division which currently counts 80 colleagues and that will only grow as we continue our merger and acquisition strategy?
“The Road IT division along with partners and contractors are busy integrating the latest acquisition, building and rolling out the new divisional transportation management system and building Road IT’s first product platform and teams, and we only expect things to grow from here! So, if you are motivated by constantly reaching new goals and being surrounded by sharp and dedicated minds like your own, DSV is truly the place to be right now,” says Rune Fleron Qvant, Head of Business IT Applications.
Welcome to DSV Road IT
You will be working at our Corporate HQ in Hedehusene, just west of Copenhagen, leading a global distributed organisation with main teams located in Denmark and Poland. Our division is accountable for the entire stack of IT services connected to DSV Road, covering new developments, change, support and operation.
The IT organisation has more than 2000 colleagues, of which 300 is located at the Corporate Campus in Hedehusene. We drive IT and digitalisation with a mix of modern technologies in a truly fast-paced environment. IT and digitalisation is a key element of our growth strategy, and as you join us, you will soon feel that the area is highly prioritised.
“Our ambitions are high, but so is our level of competence. We are excited about facing challenges together, and our collaboration is characterised by honest communication,” Rune continues.
Step into a CIO-like position and take the lead
You will take on a very significant operational and strategic responsibility as you lead Road IT and make sure that the strategy is executed. A part of this is carrying out the “Road Way Forward” initiative, implementing a new transport management system that will become the new standard for our current business.
Apart from the staff in your own division, you will also manage external partners and consultants as well as matrixed delivery from colleagues in other parts of IT that delivers services to the Road division.
Moreover, you will:
- Contribute with your leadership and insights as a part of the extended management of both the board of DSV Road and DSV IT
- Ensure the operational stability and evolution of our existing applications – making it possible for our 15,000 users to deliver 100,000 road shipments every day!
- Take development and application/product ownership on existing and new products and applications in the Road IT portfolio
You can expect to travel at least 25 days a year, mainly to Poland, Germany, South Africa and North America to meet up with the directors and senior managers under your management. The number of travel days will be higher when we integrate new acquisitions into the DSV eco system.
An experienced and strategical IT manager who is thirsty for success
You are driven by being a part of our growth adventure and ready to put in the effort to make us succeed.
When communicating strategic decisions, you stand your ground (within reason), because you have a high level of integrity. Furthermore, you can easily navigate the complexities that follows from being the highest point of escalation within Road IT.
We also imagine that you:
- Have some years of progressive leadership experience within tech, IT or digital, which has made you familiar with leading leaders – perhaps you have experience as a programme director in a matrix organisation or from a line organisation
- Know how to execute strategic decisions within an IT development context
- Are a confident and strong leader
- Could currently be working as a CIO or be ready to take on a similar role as the next step in your career
- Have some knowledge of the transportation and logistics industry, perhaps in an industrial setting
