Future Nordic Marketplaces (FNM) is working to find, nail and scale entirely new sustainable marketplace concepts for FINN.no in Norway and for all Schibsted marketplaces in Sweden, Finland and Denmark. We focus on disruptive innovation, new areas or brand new ideas within current positions which involve new markets, new business or new technology. To implement our ideas, we invest in and collaborate with startups, or start internal projects to build completely new marketplaces. We work user focused towards the ultimate goal of helping people make smarter choices for themselves and society.

As a business developer in FNM you will be working closely with a small team of business developers, a designer and a developer. The cross functional team, with you as the business developer, will be responsible for exploring and testing new business areas. You will deepdive into new areas with the goal of finding the next new marketplace for Schibsted. In a deepdive you typically look into the business potential, user needs and talk with actors & startups in the area to find the best partners. After deciding which bet to take, you will make hypotheses, test prototypes and validate these through experimentation with real users. If the idea shows great potential, we form a team to develop the concept further into the next stage of building an MVP together with partners. Leading one of the initiatives further could also be your responsibility.

To succeed in the role, you should be business oriented, a good relationship builder and have the ability to prioritize your own sometimes hectic work day. We are convinced that the best ideas come from working in cross functional teams which you should like and be able to contribute to a good team spirit.

Today, a bit over twenty engaged people work in the department, in small cross functional teams and with different backgrounds and expertise (design, business developers, product managers, sales, and developers). The team is working on newly developed products like car subscription and a b2b marketplace which are live on FINN but started as an idea within the team a while ago. At the same time, we are continuously hunting for new ideas and experimenting fast to verify user needs.

The team started within FINN in Norway and is in a transition towards a wider scope of Schibsted Nordic marketplaces in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark. We strongly believe that we can achieve more and build better future marketplaces working together with colleagues all over the Nordics. Therefore candidates from all four countries will be considered. We work in a hybrid way, combining home office with working from our great offices in Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Oslo. Some traveling will be required to enable physical meetings with the team.

You will report to the Business Unit Manager for Future Nordic Marketplaces.
