Are you up for the challenge of building and leading a software development team in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?
Over the next couple of years, the Diagnostics division within Demant has an ambition to build a team of 100 employees in Kuala Lumpur. And we are looking for the right person to establish the software team and forge collaborations with our software development organization, based in Denmark and Poland.
You will report to the VP of R&D in Denmark, alongside a local host manager. Moreover, you will be part of the R&D leadership team together with four colleagues.
Establish new software department in Kuala Lumpur
Your primary task is to get the new software department up and running. Our ambition is to build a top performing organization in a very short timeframe. To achieve this, you will take part in branding activities, and work with local universities and recruitment agencies to attract new talent. We expect to recruit 50 new employees to the software department within the next 12 months.
Once you have built up your organization of team leads, developers and supporters, you will be instrumental in creating the best possible software solutions in close collaboration with our developers in Poland and in Denmark. Thus, you can look forward to an exciting journey with many challenges and possibilities to grow.
Leading diverse cultural teams
To succeed in the position, you must have a proven track record of leading multi-cultural software development teams. Ideally, you have acquired this experience from a multi-site setup, involving different countries and nationalities.
While your technical skills will enable you to plan the direction of our software solutions and technologies, people leadership should be your main motivation. It is important that you foster a culture of empowerment in your team, and one that is aligned with the rest of our organization.
The R&D leadership team are looking forward to welcoming you to the team and receiving your input on how we should set the strategy for building a new SW department in Kuala Lumpur.
In joining us, you will get the opportunity to work with life-changing hearing healthcare solutions. We always strive to improve ourselves, and this has led us to a point where we have the best employees and the best products. This is how we win as individuals, as teams and as a company. And we want you to win as well!
