In this part of our business strategy we focus on innovating and growing our products for customers that we are supplying energy to. You work together with two product teams that are continuously delivering value for new services and growth of our platform. Also there is a direct link and influence to other delivery teams such as our CRM, BPM and ERP. The field of internal stakeholders, important for (cross-functional) collaboration, is very diverse and can be found in our departments of Customer Operations, Growth, Marketing, Energy Services and E-Mobility.
What are you going to do?
You create product roadmaps together with your team and make as much impact as possible by aligning the product roadmap with Vandebrons strategic ambitions, maximizing impact by influencing those strategic ambitions if needed
Your personal focus is the high level roadmap for the Marketplace domain with an outlook of at least six months. You work towards the ambition of extending that view to the minimum of a year. This will contribute to a steady focus of the more short term product roadmaps.
