Job Description

In the Demo Platform team, we help people be heroes, which also makes us heroes! We develop the platform and capabilities that presales across the whole IFS eco system use to demonstrate the value of IFS Cloud to customers. Joining our team is a unique opportunity to get exposure to the selling side of IFS, whilst still being part of a great RnD organization with ample career opportunities. We are a small but growing team with a startup feeling.

We are looking for a dynamic, self-driven individual who is committed to delivering an excellent product all while challenging the status quo to bridge the gap between business and technology. Business value, usability and solution consistency are key aspects of your work.

As a product specialist in the Demo Platform team, you will play a key role in building out the standard demo data set for IFS’s solutions. This includes working closely with our customers (presales) to understand their demo requirements and translating them into user stories, some of which you will complete yourself by completing documentation, data and data loading scripts in a low-code environment. You will actively contribute to the design, validation, development, and enablement of this solution, ensuring our software is showcased in the best light. If you are someone who enjoys working with different stakeholders, you will appreciate that we work across all IFS’s solutions and focused industries, collaborating with product experts from R&D as well.

To be effective in job you need to be a good communicator, be a fast study (we work across all solution areas, remember), already know or have the enthusiasm to learn the capabilities of the IFS Cloud and the business—you can’t work with the demo platform unless you have the eagerness to understand what we’re trying to sell. You also need to have that drive for excellence, to always do better for our users.
