Ap­pli­ca­tion Manager for Business-Critical Ap­pli­ca­tions


Job Req Number:  55992 
Time Type: Full Time

Do you want to work in an IT organisation constantly aiming for improvement, where we prioritise the necessary investments to create the solutions of tomorrow? And would you like to be a trusted business partner in a successful company in growth as you link IT and business?

Then join us and be responsible for a portfolio of applications and for the service ownership of these applications. Here, you will enter a position with a strong development focus and the resources to excel, as we strive to become a market leader within the digitised transport sector. 

If you also want to collaborate with enthusiastic colleagues as you manage the development as well as the maintenance and support of a continuously growing portfolio of applications, then please read on.

Join a vibrant development team of dedicated specialists

You will join a team of application managers, project managers, IT specialists and business analysts. Together, we follow the applications all the way from vendor selection, implementation, and onboarding until they are an integrated part of our development, maintenance and second-level support. 

Because of our growth strategy, our application portfolio will only continue to grow. So, you will enter a highly dynamic work environment, which is only enhanced by our excitement about new tools and continuous development.  

Ensure that our application deliveries reach their goals

We are responsible for applications to business areas within PPM, Compliance, Insurance and Customs. Compliance alone is a big area, spanning both QMS, Legal, Financial, Customs and IT.

Acting as a link between business and IT, you will plan deliveries – including clarifying aims and objectives and advising on direction for the applications – and ensure their timely execution.

This means that you will:

  • Manage and prioritise the time and tasks of our application teams
  • Be responsible for contract and vendor management
  • Collaborate with business owners and various specialists from our different business areas when coordinating the continuous development processes and general maintenance
  • Ensure that service and change requests are handled – and step in to help with the practical tasks if needed
  • Be responsible for our SLA

A qualified application manager who runs IT deliveries smoothly

With your great overview and coordination skills, you will soon know how to prioritise the different parts of a delivery, and you have the drive to follow things through. So, being the person leading the delivery from beginning to end does not scare you.

Moreover, you keep all relevant stakeholders well-informed, and you can see yourself enjoying being a mediator between people with different professional backgrounds. This also means that you communicate proactively to preserve effective working relationships.

Finally, taking on responsibility comes naturally to you, and navigating in a fast-changing environment fits your proactive and structured approach well. 

We also imagine that you:

  • Have solid experience with management and coordination of IT delivery and application management – experience with project management in general would also be an advantage
  • Have an education within IT or experience working in an IT delivery organisation – either way, you enjoy taking the lead on IT deliveries
  • Might have some knowledge of working with PPM, Compliance or experience from a regulated industry
