A DAY IN YOUR LIFE WITH US

On a day to day basis you will be creating a world class shopping experience for millions of our customers by focusing on expanding delivery & services choices that are convenient, speedy, sustainable and affordable, all the while keeping IKEA’s fulfilment costs low. You will support in defining the vision, strategy & roadmap for digital products within order fulfilment domain. By working with a dedicated team of engineers, designers & specialists you will provide a convenient and delightful fulfilment experience for our customers. By testing and explorations, you will constantly identify opportunities to grow and deliver value to our customers & IKEA.

As an Associate Product Manager with IKEA’s Fulfilment space you will:

• Support Senior Product Managers & Product Managers in developing end to end global product vision and strategy in collaboration with key stakeholders for products within e-commerce fulfilment space
• Support the product teams in delivering business outcomes (growth & cost savings) by experimenting and continuous development of products and making trade-off decisions as needed.
• Actively manage the product backlog including clearly expressing product backlog items with metrics and prioritizing based on business goals
• Be a subject matter expert for product teams, providing insight, context and additional information as needed to help understanding of what is required.

In this role you will report to head of products for a domain within Fulfilment. This role is based in Amsterdam

Good to know: hierarchy at IKEA is so flat that even our “Chief Digital Officer”’s official title is Digital Manager. So although we are looking for Associate Product Managers, your official internal title in IKEA would be Product Specialist. But not to worry, that is just internal lingo, we need true product folks in the team.

TOGETHER AS A TEAM

At IKEA we believe in people and that we are always better together. Within Group Digital we set the digital agenda to keep IKEA leading in an uncertain and fast-moving environment.

Within Fulfilment product space, we develop products that will provide our customers with the choices in delivery and services, at the speed and cost they need and at a competitive price while providing the level of order visibility they require.

We drive the development, provision and operation of our digital products and services using new and existing technology and agile delivery methods to deliver at pace. At the same time, we provide a home for digital skills to both develop and extend the technical, people and business skills needed to ensure continuous development and growth of our digital capability.
