Job Description

Are you the link between Business and IT? Do you want to be at the helm for one of the most crucial business processes? Prove to us you can do it by translating business demand to functionality.

You are the linking pin between the business and the development team. You are facilitating your team of 4-5 persons. It is complicated: you need to be commercial and at the same time you need to be able to keep your development process neat and clean.

You have affinity with payroll and customer services. In a rapidly changing company, you can quickly define what is key and what is a secondary functionality request. Words like spec, estimate, sprint and retro mean something to you. You will be challenged; the scope is large! You need to provide a steady and clear backlog for your team, so they can work as efficiently as possible.

In this role you will also be seen as a ‘first contact’ when things go wrong. You are able to determine if an issue is an error or a major –business stopping- error and take action accordingly.

Skills & Requirements

  • You have an IT background (experience with SCRUM would help!)
  • You are a senior professional, a team player, solution oriented and strongly client service oriented
  • Your English and Dutch are fluent, you have excellent communications skills
  • You have proven to be able to handle change and high pressure in earlier job(s)
  • You have an entrepreneurial attitude, you are able to keep deadlines no matter what, you are curious and steadfast, if you keep asking questions
  • You can explain complex IT issues in a way professionals of the operations team understand
  • You have a bachelor or masters degree
