Senior Category Director - Flat Roof Windows, Global Product Management

At the VELUX Group, we give you the chance to grow. To shape your own career. To work in an international environment. To be part of a company that leads the market in sustainable indoor living. We offer you a world of opportunities – if you have the ability and the drive to take them.

Are you experienced within Category Management, can you develop both vision, strategy and execute, while you inspire and drive commercial initiatives? Do you know how to motivate and influence others? And would you thrive working in a dynamic and international company that is the global market leader? Then this position may be the next step in your career.

This is your opportunity to deliver an extraordinary effort, taking VELUX Flat Roof Windows to the next level, becoming the director of the newly merged category working towards both the residential and professional markets.

Your challenges
VELUX has recently merged the Flat Roof Category to contain product management for both the residential and professional market within Flat Roof Windows and Sun-tunnels, and it is pointed out by management as a focus/growth area. Together with your dedicated 5-person team of Product Managers and Commercial Product Managers, you will, based on market insights, build strategies and product road-maps which ensure that the category will be developed, prioritised and relevant for the users across our 40 sales companies globally. Your team will be part of product development from ideation to successful launch and keep a constant focus on how to increase sales and product range through commercial initiatives. 

Your team will, in close cooperation with the VELUX development departments, develop and introduce new and innovating products and provide commercial guidance, as well as product support, directly to our sales companies in order to ensure effective execution of strategy and growing the business together. 

Furthermore, your team will also participate in cross functional Global Product Management projects, securing that the full potential of new products, campaigns and ideas are implemented.

You will be based at the VELUX Head Office in Hørsholm (just north of Copenhagen) and be a part of a global organisation. You can expect to travel approximately 30 days annually – both in Denmark and internationally.

Your qualifications
You have graduated with a Master’s Degree within business, economics, any technical degree or similar combined with 10+ years of relevant experience, working with product development and category management. It is furthermore expected that you have experience managing a smaller team.

Your strong point is your international mindset, your understanding of and passion for category management, your commercial and execution mindset and your technical understanding of how products add value to the customers. 

Innovative, analytical, hardworking, practical and a natural leader is who you are. You can take ideas and turn them into successful solutions, and you can translate the technical ideas into business language, and the other way around.

Being a natural networker, you easily build up relationships within the organisation through results, credibility and trust. You are a self-starter with a ‘can do’, result-oriented attitude and a strong understanding of the many possibilities working with a category with a large unresolved potential.

As a person, you possess great drive, and you can form the new vision for this category, develop the strategy and set a clear direction for the team. It is important that you can navigate within a matrix organisation with many different stakeholders, and that you can achieve results in this type of environment.

Last, but not least, you communicate fluently in English, both spoken and in writing.

Your opportunities
In addition to operating at a highly professional level, our team is characterised by an informal tone and a healthy sense of humour. We work as one team to reach our ambitious results. We believe in empowering people, and we support this through sharing knowledge, delegating responsibility and investing in people who strive to make a difference.

The international environment in the VELUX Group is a great source of inspiration with a lot of good ideas and best practices from all across the world, and the international setting is in our DNA.

The VELUX Group offers exciting challenges, great opportunities of influencing your own development with competent and dedicated colleagues where commitment, thoroughness and mutual respect are among the core values.
