Come as you are

Your gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, skin color or pink hair are part of who you are. To-Increase is an equal opportunity employer and we stand for equality and inclusion. If you’re a team player, an expert and are ready to shine, we would love to welcome you to the team.

What You'll Do

To-Increase is the recognized Global leader in Discrete Manufacturing ERP Solutions. In order for us to stay in this Leader position, we need to stay in close contact with our global customer base & work closely together with Microsoft HQ R&D organization on continuous product innovation. We see this as a team effort. To co-lead this Product innovation program we want to hire an experienced domain expert. 

We are in need of a Product Manager that has a solid background in Discrete Manufacturing software solutions. Once you are working for To-Increase, you will become responsible for several our offerings, on both Business Central, Finance and Supply Chain Management but also on Azure, CDS, Power Portals and PowerApps.

You will be able to set the future for these solutions by creating a vision for the solutions that contains a description of the future state, but also a roadmap on the transition to that state. As you go you always keep in mind the bigger purpose of To-Increase and the goals that are defined as well as the market changes and disruptions.

Using the roadmap, you will translate the 3-year roadmap to 1-year goals and down to individual Epics that will be executed within a Program Increment.

The content of the Epics is clear to everyone, has been discussed with the team, has received consensus from the team and has been estimated towards time needed to develop. You will then present these Epics for approval to our board and report back to the team to let them develop. Once an Epic is ready, you will take ownership by signing off on it and together with our Marketing Leads you will work together to inform the world what we have done and the added value we deliver.

Of course, one of your main focuses is to create, maintain and leverage direct contact with partners, customers and potentially other stakeholders, as they are part of your source. With ease and confidence, you should be able to take the stage and present our offering, process and results.

What-is situation

We have several solutions on Finance & Supply Chain Management as well as on Business Central. We have requests from partners, customer but also from Microsoft directly to add functionality (“fill white spaces”) to our existing solutions, but we also have the important move towards Micro services.

Combine these subjects and you see that we need to change the way we look at our solutions from an “ERP-solution” to a solution that fills a gap or relieves a customer pain, regardless of platform or device.

Our solutions are mature, but maturity can lead to complacency and we cannot afford that. We need to keep innovating, both functional and technical. Here also the importance of Customer Experience is growing which we need to closely follow, identify and act upon to make our solutions the best of the best in terms of customer experience.

First year forecast for the role

You start by making the solutions your own, both in terms of business value and functionality, but also in terms of future, roadmap, vision, potential and people. During that period, you will be immersed in the Program Increment process of creating Epics, estimating them, defending them to the Portfolio Management Board, prioritizing the for PI planning, involvement in PI-updates and retrospectives.

At the same time, you will reach out to existing and potential new customers to present and discuss the solution, the vision, gather ideas and feedback.

Based on all this information, you will then update your vision document and the roadmap, and you will define and discuss the Epics with the team that, once delivered, will materialize your roadmap as a tangible change in the product.

A day in the life as Product Manager at To-Increase:

No day is the same, there is no average day. You will be working on so many different things at the same time, depending on where we are in the PI and where you stand in the realization of the roadmap.

Hectic is the key, remaining calm is the objective.

Overall role goal

As a product manager you play a primary role in defining and setting the vision, strategy and roadmap and feature definition for your products within its domain and you ensure that they are aligned with the overall To-Increase strategy towards the future. You are responsible for guiding the success of your offerings and will guide the cross-functional team that is responsible for building and improving it.
