Would you like to develop and take ownership of SaaS products that will improve sustainability and efficiency for hundreds of food and agricultural companies across the world? 

The increased demand and pressure on providing food of high quality in sustainable ways requires new thinking and smarter ways of operating. FOSS has therefore recently established a new business division focusing entirely on new software solutions to strengthen the digitalization across the supply chain of the thousands of food companies that FOSS already work closely with.

FOSS is a family-driven company that has been in the business for many years, but you will be part of establishing a new business area and hub in Copenhagen full of entrepreneurs and developers. We have high ambitions, and you will play an important role in building future services.

  • Being responsible for the prioritization of the validated roadmap that is aligned and communicated to relevant stakeholders.
  • Working with other product managers to ensure a coherent set of services is ready for an overall launch, and that we can execute on the go-to market strategy.

On a long-term basis, you will lead the growth of this service area, both in the breadth of services and in supporting the approach to the market

You will work with customers to identify new opportunities to make us live up to our vision of being an ‘insights provider’. It could be new ways of creating intelligent systems through machine learning or new ways of providing data visualization.

  • 1-3 years experience with product management or related role.

  • You should possess the ability to mix innovation with strategic thinking and demonstrate strong cross-functional collaboration, planning, and prioritization skills.
  • Good business understanding, ensuring transparency across the value chain, and pulling towards a common goal.
  • Ability to learn quickly and understand complex solutions, so you quickly can get up to speed on the subject and business we are operating in.
  • You get things done, but also enjoy having fun with colleagues.

Why you belong here

  • With approx. 1,500 employees, FOSS has a solid record of continued business growth and a strong business strategy for an exciting future journey.
  • Our new division FSS is expected to count 100 employees before the end of 2023 and will be based at FOSS Innovation Centre in Hillerød, Denmark and in Warsaw, Poland. We will, in addition to these established locations, add a dedicated hub in central Copenhagen.
  • We anticipate increased digital business development so there are plenty of opportunities for personal and professional growth!
  • Our work is based on trust and working in teams, and you can expect to enter a great working place where you can bring your ideas to the table, take ownership, and make a real difference.
