Come and join Swedbank’s CIO team as Technology Evangelist and take the driving seat for leading the introduction of new technologies at Swedbank.

About the job

Do you love the impact of cloud based services, or use Amazon Alexa at home? Have you thought about getting a chip implant to your arm or did you buy some Bitcoins just for fun? If you have an eye for technology trends and their potential impact and if you are also good at convening the message and influencing others, then one of the most interesting jobs in Financial Technology might be available for you!
Your responsibility will be to act as a catalyst for introducing new technologies at Swedbank operations. You will work with teams across the whole organization in order to bring alive new tools, new ways of working, new sourcing models etc.

In the role of Technology Evangelist you will be both outward and inward looking. You’ll look after the trends and suppliers, synthesize and communicate the potential impact for Swedbank. At the same time you will be in tight contact with teams in IT Development and Infrastructure and Operations – listen their thoughts, support in change management etc. You will continuously develop your competence for keeping the edge in your expertise and know-how.

What you need to succeed

To really excel as an Technology Evangelist with us, you need:

  • University degree in Information Technology
  • At least 3 years of experience in working with introduction of new technologies in organizations in international company
  • Proven track-record in change management 
  • Excellent skills in communication, ability to adjust your message depending the audience
  • Proven experience in leading change, even without a formal mandate
  • Fluency in English

In this recruitment we are evaluating as much your experience/knowledge as your personality. We expect you to speak up your mind, drive change, establish credibility. We also hope that you enjoy a good dare, know how to find your way in complicated situations and that you do not have problem to second-guess and influence the decisions of higher management . Networking should be your middle name – and you should live it with a smile.
