You are a business service developer by heart and have a proven experience in developing attractive clean energy services and offers for end customers.
We are working with partners who are experts in, and provide the technology of solar, storage, heat pumps, EV or energy tariffs for the residential segment. What you should focus on is how we best utilize and package offers and services within the solar (PV) into great customer centric value propositions. You get energized by questions like: How can Ingka leapfrog the conventional way of buying clean energy services and be relevant to many more of the many people? How can Ingka utilize our expertise and knowledge about life at home in this area? How can Ingka offer clean energy services that are affordable, simple, and available for the many people? And how can Ingka do this with a holistic view on the needs of the customer? We are well on our way with our Solar offer available in many markets, but we are only in the beginning of our journey and are looking to further build and improve our offer and services.
We need you to have proven experience in developing and designing clean energy service offers to end-customers. To support you in this mission you will work closely with the rest of the dedicated clean energy business team, our partners in each of the markets, our local market teams as well as across the Ingka organization.
You have deep insight into the residential solar PV technology area and can act as a subject matter expert towards the rest of the team. You are mastering design thinking of services, have a positive mindset and good processes to support your business development work. You know how to lead a development project with co-creation across the organization where you are the business owner scoping and receiving requests. When working you have a clear structure, pay attention to detail, and have a strong finish-and-follow-up-mentality. At Ingka we are working in a changing environment where we develop as we run – so you need to be comfortable and feel motivated in such an environment.
You know how to work in a big global company, taking care of global and local needs and stakeholders. You are good at building trust and strong relationships – both internally but also externally. Big thinking is your thing – but you know how to start small and are pragmatic and patient in your approach and always pay attention to get to get the full team with you on the development journey. You are not afraid of rolling up your sleeves to get things done.
Last, but not least – you are a true ambassador of the IKEA Culture & Values and always take them into consideration when taking action and decisions.
