To further strengthen our team, we are looking for a new Team Lead Business Design. An experienced foreman / woman who can lead complex strategic processes. And who is at the same time a mentor who gives further direction to our strategic skills and builds on our business design team.

What we mean by 'Business Design'

Business Designers are responsible for the business viability of the innovations that they devise together with their team. It is the role of the Business Designer to understand the context of the customer, turn data into insights, discover and define business models, to determine the strategy and to communicate the vision. And - last but not least - to help our customers bring new propositions to market.

What Business Designers do

  • They analyze the market, the company, the target group and the strategic objectives of our customers and help them to determine their short and long term objectives.
  • They facilitate the process to arrive at distinctive innovations together with team members, through a well-considered synthesis based on business insights, research into (latent) user needs and a technical analysis.
  • They design new, customer-focused business models that enable our customers to stand out from their competition.
  • They work together with designers, developers and user experience researchers to develop new and strategically distinctive (digital) products.
  • Together with our Team Designers, they help our clients to build the capabilities needed to support and expand the new business proposition.
  • They use scenario planning and business case development to calculate the expected return on innovations.

What we mean by ‘Tribe Lead’

Jungle Minds does not have team managers, but Tribe Leads: assisting foreman / woman with a real mandate to shape their own area of ​​expertise and associated team. And make a substantial contribution to the strategic direction and development of our agency. As a Tribe Lead Business Design you are responsible for the development of the business design discipline and you are the mentor of the other business designers. You ensure that:

  • Your tribe has a clear direction in which it wants to develop it’s skills and methods. And you ensure that this goal is in line with the overall strategic direction of Jungle Minds as a whole.
  • You translate this direction into concrete job profiles, ensure that your tribe members formulate a clear personal development direction and you are responsible for assessing how your Tribe members develop themselves as experts.
  • You represent the Business Design Tribe in the strategic consultation structure within Jungle Minds and are the first point of contact for hiring new tribe members.

Our ideal candidate

  • 10+ years of experience in a role as Business Designer, Business Consultant or Strategist or comparable role within the digital domain. Agency experience is a requirement, whether or not in combination with experience on client-side.
  • You are fast thinker and modest and energetic personality, with a naturally forward looking mentality and the ability to perfectly represent our agency with both new and existing clients.
  • You have proven to be able to coach and expand a team, you are a natural and empathetic leader and an exemplary professional.

What Jungle Minds has to offer

Jungle Minds is an established agency with a serious track record and network that opens doors to new opportunities. But we have also maintained our independence, in both ownership and energy, which gives you as a Tribe Lead the space and possibilities to further develop yourself and the way the agency is heading. We have great ambitions and a culture in which strategy, research, design and development constantly work together to achieve valuable results. Meaning that at Jungle Minds you will find 40 smart, skilled and fun colleagues who enjoy coming to work every day.

Oh, and all other -hard and soft- conditions are also quite excellent. Amongst them: the view. But you would just have to come over to see that for yourself.
