Business Unit Lead

  • Full Time

Plat4mation

Plat4mation’s German entity is rapidly expanding in order to keep up with market demand. Therefore we are looking to hire a Business Unit Lead, spearheading our German delivery teams. If you are a delivery-oriented senior professional seasoned in project delivery and team development, looking for a chance to develop (yourself with) a fast growing organization, this is the chance you were waiting for!

What will you do?

You will be responsible for the Business Unit “Delivery Germany” in the DACH (aka “Central”) entity of Plat4mation. The BU Delivery Germany consists of multiple delivery teams, each spearheaded by a Team Lead. While the Team Leads are responsible for managing a team of professionals with a particular role dedicated to one or a few client accounts, the Business United Lead is responsible for making sure that all delivery teams are operating according to the company´s objectives, quality delivery standards, and are staffed effectively and efficiently.

As an organizational leader in Plat4mation you actively help in developing and implementing Plat4mation wide (delivery) standards, also supporting the overall company. We expect from our leaders to be on top of what is happening and actively stay involved in our core business. You lead by example, are a role model for our Core Values and are not hesitant to step in where needed. You will have an active role in supporting and collaborate with sales to find the right approach to the German market; e.g. you will support in creating the right strategies and product offerings. You will report into DACH leadership and your direct reports are the country’s team leads.
