Om tjänsten
INNTQ är ett innovationsföretag som utvecklar interaktiva upplevelser speciellt utformade för offentliga miljöer såsom köpcentrums, sportbarer, flygplatser på en internationell marknad. Företaget befinner sig i ett oerhört intressant skede där man har utvecklat sin första färdiga produkt, ROCO– världens första interaktiva berg- och dalbana. Intresset bland centrumägarna är mycket stort och produkterna har börjat levereras till kunder i Europa.

Vi söker dig som kan hjälpa INNTQ i sin vidare expansion. Din primära uppgift blir att bearbeta den europeiska marknaden. Företagets grundare har sin bas i Älmhult. Var du sitter är dock inte avgörande. I rollen kan du utgå från hemmet eller hitta en lokal kontorslösning som passar just dig.

Grundarna på företaget, har stora ambitioner att växa internationellt och deras strategimål är att placera ut 1000 nya maskiner i olika länder fram till år 2025.


Dina arbetsuppgifter i huvudsak
Som affärsutvecklare kommer du att etablera nya kontakter med centrumledare, centrumägare och andra relevanta beslutsfattare för offentliga miljöer med syfte att få ut våra produkter på den internationella marknaden. Du kommer att teckna centrala avtal och därefter agera spindeln i nätet för att säkerställa kundnöjdhet och en hög servicenivå.

Du kommer att vara inblandad i allt från att analysera marknaden, lägga upp en marknadsplan och givetvis själv bearbeta marknaden. Bearbetningen sker via direktkontakt, riktade och breda kampanjer på sociala medier och deltagande på mässor. Du kommer arbeta i nära samarbete med en av företagets grundare där du fokuserar på Europa och han mot den amerikanska marknaden.

INNTQ är ett litet företag med en fantastisk produkt och stora ambitioner. Detta innebär att du kommer att få en bred roll med ett stort mandat att påverka din och företagets utveckling och framgång.

Rollen innebär en del resor, främst inom Europa, men även till några av de största branschmässorna i USA.



Vem är du?
Vi söker en affärssinnad affärsutvecklare som vågar vara kreativ och testa nya idéer. Rollen är komplex och kräver förståelse för centrumägarnas behov, affärsmodell och beslutsvägar. Vi tror att du har arbetat mot retail tidigare och har du erfarenhet av lease, pop up eller events ytor mot köpcenters blir din resa kortare. Vidare är du van att driva dina egna affärer och drivs av personlig utveckling.

God datorvana är ett måste liksom en genuin nyfikenhet kring arbetssätt kopplat till digitala verktyg. Då vi är verksamma i en internationell miljö behöver du ha goda kunskaper i svenska och engelska, både i tal och skrift samt en nyfikenhet kring skillnader i affärskulturer mellan olika länder.

I denna roll lägger vi stor vikt vid dina personliga egenskaper. För att lyckas i rollen krävs att du är affärsmässig, analytisk och har ett stort eget driv. Dina nuvarande kollegor beskriver dig som påhittig, social, strukturerad samt som en mycket god kommunikatör. Du trivs i en omväxlande roll där du blandar högt och lågt. Sist men inte minst är du en positiv och engagerad medarbetare som stödjer dina kolleger med samma lust och engagemang som dina kollegor kommer att finnas till hands för dig.


Om verksamheten
Efter flera år med verksamhet utanför Sverige flyttar nu grundarna till INNTQ verksamheten till Älmhult – Sverige. Detta innebär att alla maskiner som INNTQ erbjuder utvecklas och byggs i Sverige. INNTQ använder bara den bästa tekniken och materialet – allt för att du ska känna dig trygg med att produkterna som INNTQ erbjuder håller högsta klass och klarar av en hög belastning av åkare och användning. Produkterna är alltid testade för offentlig miljö och är CE märkta och byggda för att fungera obemannade. För centrumägarna innebär produkterna ingen investering – vi placerar produkterna i offentliga miljöer kostnadsfritt och delar på intäkterna med dem.

Konceptet har även rönt ett stort intresse bland investerare och via en nyemission har man tagit in kapital för en vidare expansion, vad gäller produktion, försäljning och utveckling av nya interaktiva upplevelser.

Our ambition with Business to Business is to establish IKEA as a reliable partner for business customers. They will choose IKEA for our furnishing expertise, affordable complete offer, ability to deliver with precision and easily accessible meeting points.

Welcome to the exciting world of Business to Business. Everything we do always starts and ends with our customers – the many people. Most places need furnishing solutions, and these are procured by companies and organizations that have different needs compared to consumers. 

Almost 8% of the IKEA sales comes from Business-to-Business today. The current B2B sales are driven through our current operating model, Retail sales, and is mainly small orders from micro and small customers that have more of a consumer-behavior. To address the full potential of the B2B segment we need to add a new operating model that can meet the medium and large orders and medium and large companies, that rather purchase projects than products in stores or online.

To achieve this, we will develop a new operating model that focuses on business customers. The operating model covers both the demands for an optimal supply chain set-up as well as an optimal customer meeting (end-to-end). Where our existing solutions are incapable of fulfilling business customer demands, we will re-evaluate and re-design in all three dimensions of the operating model i.e., people, processes, and technology.

Are you interested to join a team with a lot of passion for developing IKEA? Are you a person that loves challenges and sees these as opportunities? Are you a passionate leader with an entrepreneurial mindset with the courage to break new grounds for IKEA? Do you get the energy to influence, interact and work together with all parts of IKEA? Great, then Business to Business is something for you!

Business to Business is one of the biggest growth potentials for IKEA in the future, and here is your chance to influence and build it. As a Workstream Leader, Meeting the Customer for Project Sales, you will play a key role in establishing a new operating model that caters for project sales. 

You will be a crucial part of the project team for project sales that belong to Business Area Kitchen, Bathroom and Appliances. You will lead the Meeting the Customer stream within the project and secure that the defined tasks and time plan within your area are delivered and met. You will report to the Project Manager for the Project Sales – Project.

You main assignments for this role will be:

•    Leading the Meeting the Customer initiatives within the B2B project sales project, and the connected development initiatives to it - with the task to define, test, develop and document the new IKEA operating model for medium and large residential construction and service sector projects. 
•    Leading the Meeting the Customer stream and the development initiatives connected to it, together with core stream members, subject matter experts, other relevant stakeholders.
•    You will contribute with a strong commercial knowledge, i.e., how to meet and sell to business customers in a project setup and secure that the stream development and connected initiatives are aligned according to business customers’ needs. 

The overall assignment is to develop a B2B operating model, covering the commercial scope including:
•    Direct sales - Enabled through a key account and project management setup 
•    Sales pipeline management - Targeting sales approach towards attractive projects and optimal resource allocation
•    Differentiated value proposition - Manage multiple stakeholders with specific value propositions per stakeholders
•    Total offer - Offer B2B services, pricing and key competences based on customer type

Does this sound like your next challenge?
