Sales is a primary process for any public transportation company. The complexity of the sales process is increasing due to increasing competition and growing consumer expectations. Innovation, revenue management, personalisation and multi-channel are all important factors to operate successfully. Sqills has completed several implementations with international customers, a selection of these include BlaBlaBus, OUIGO, Eurostar, the Rail Delivery Group, and Irish Rail.
In 2019 Sqills opened a new office in Paris to serve our (future) customers in France and nearby regions. Business consultants and customer support engineers in the Paris office will work closely with the product owners and DevOps teams in Enschede in the Netherlands.
We attribute our success to the involvement of our more than 160 employees. We want you to join Sqills and be a part of our journey to become the global number one company for inventory, sales and distribution systems for public transport companies.
We are actively looking for an international business consultant with experience as a (product/implementation) consultant within complex IT projects (with a turnaround of 6–24 months). In your role as business consultant you guide the customer in configuring the business processes within our product, S3 Passenger.
Oftentimes the system that S3 Passenger replaces is almost completely bespoke. As a consultant, you play an important role in helping the organisation understand and fully utilise the capabilities of the S3 Passenger software suite.
Customisation within a project of this scope is unavoidable. One such example is the connection between the accounting, inventory, CRM and revenue management systems. You are also responsible for the functional connectivity of these systems. You will also occasionally deal with other components, these may include online stores or other front-end applications.
Part of the job (giving workshops, discussing requirements etc.) takes place at the location of the customer, both inside and outside of France. You will also spend time at our new headquarters in Enschede to work alongside our DevOps teams.
We are looking for someone who has demonstrative experience and success as a consultant. You offer advice related to crucial business insights for our customer, which means that they expect a sparring partner who has proven themselves. You can interpret the current trends of the transport sector and understand how Sqills offers added value.
You remain critical but always think in solutions. We would prefer a colleague who has a background as a Software Developer or Information Analyst. This experience allows you to go more in-depth into the subject matter.
Bachelor’s or master’s degree;
Excellent communication skills in both French (C2 Level) and English.
Willingness to travel to customers worldwide.
International experience is a benefit;
You can read situations and communicate in a tactful manner;
Experience within an IT or Public transport environment is a benefit;
Demonstrable experience in translating business objectives into IT needs (infrastructure, systems);
A minimum of 3 years relevant work experience as a consultant on the supplier side;
Our software is complex enough, applying for a job shouldn’t be. That's why we'll only ask for a name, a phone number or email adres.
Having our microservices running on AWS makes us scalable for any customer anywhere in the world.
Spend more time on code, less with debugging.
Writing less code is always good - less is more.
Version management...what else would you use?
Runs all of our code in many containers in a microservice landscape
