Director and platform owner of DSV Solution's core applications
Job Req Number: 53457
We are taking giant leaps, going from traditional IT deliveries to flexible, scalable, and fast-paced deliveries to keep up with a fast-changing world.
In all of this, a brand-new IT function is seeing the light of day – and you can be at the helm of it. Defining it, building it, revolutionising it. Are you ready to take on the challenge?
Join the evolution
At DSV Solutions, we partner with our customers to design and deliver logistics solutions that enable efficient operations and increase cost efficiency for hundreds of logistics facilities across the world.
We cover 4 vital delivery areas, including warehouse management systems, automations solutions and – your new area of responsibility – core applications.
The core application product platform focuses on all freight and delivery management systems enabling freight invoicing and settlement, customs and duty management, package, and label scanning and much, much more.
With new demands, legislations and world challenges being a constant for us, we are continuously working to improve our IT so it can keep up and keep ahead. And therefore, we are looking to streamline the portfolio as well as reengineer many of our individual technologies, our roadmap, and our life cycle management.
Global IT, of which DSV Solutions IT is part, is a growing and integral part of the operations of DSV, one of the world’s largest logistics providers. Together, we are around 2000 employees spread across various countries and regions all over the world, giving us a truly global presence.
At DSV, we play a significant role in global logistics operations as one of the world’s largest transport and logistics providers. Looking forward, we are on a mission to become a technological leader within our field, setting the standard for the rest of the industry.
Define, create, lead
In order to modernise and expand the portfolio, you will need a team – one that does not exist yet. While we already have excellent programmers, product owners and other brilliant minds at DSV working on core applications, it will be up to you to gather them all into a brand-new team, hire even more and lead them towards success.
What the team will look like, how they will work, and much more will depend on your leadership style and vision for our core applications. You will, however, have very clear goals, which include building and leading a team with end-to-end delivery capabilities, from support to security, architecture and governance.
More specifically, you will:
- Define the structure and set-up of the team and drive the build-up over the next year
- Continue leading and developing the team
- Foster a culture of proactivity, innovation and modern approaches to IT within the team
- Explore and develop new business opportunities for the core application product platform
- Establish, maintain and ensure delivery of the overall products roadmap and strategy of the core application product platform
Do you have the skills to lead?
With our constant focus on performance and optimisation, it is important that you are highly curious, that you never stop wanting to learn more and that you are always driven to take action when opportunities present themselves. Fast action is the key to success here. Not that you need to be working 24/7/365, but in the sense of never leaving a good opportunity laying idle.
“We pride ourselves in our ability to act fast when new opportunities arise. So, this is a great position if you are the highly responsive type. Someone who really wants to get things going and isn’t afraid of taking big leaps if a great business opportunity presents itself” – Kenneth Svendsen, Head of DSV Solutions IT.
Apart from that, we are very open in terms of what your background may be – no specific titles or degrees are necessary, as long as you have:
- Solid Leadership experience and the ability to lead others through encouragement, feedback, and performance development
- Sound technological knowledge, not at coding level, but enough to understand our systems and analyse them to identify key issues and formulate conclusions
- Excellent communication skills in English, as you will often collaborate with colleagues across borders and even travel approx. 25 days per year
Want to know more and apply?
We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the position and about your options in DSV. You are welcome to call Head of DSV Solutions IT Kenneth Svendsen at +45 30 93 13 71.
