Chief Strategist for Digital Ecosystems & Partnerships

Would you like to utilise the opportunities offered by digital ecosystems to strengthen Grundfos’ capabilities in a world of digital transformation and make real positive impact on sustainability?  

Keeping us ahead in a world of digital transformation

You will join a specialised team of 4 who support the business by driving global strategic digital partnerships. We are a key contributor in establishing water and energy-efficient solutions as a new growth platform with the goal of transforming Grundfos into a truly digital solutions and service provider.


Together, we provide the strategies, business models, tools, processes and services that enable mutual value creation between Grundfos, our customers and our external stakeholders.


“We’re working in a changeable environment, and our target today might not be the same in a year. We need to deliver continuous results, implement multi-speed strategies and be proactive – there is no rule book to what we do,” explains Head of Digital Ecosystems & Partnerships Søren Bro.

Developing solutions for the world’s water and climate challenges

As our new chief strategist, you will work to establish Grundfos’ position as a global ecosystem partner.

To help us succeed in a competitive market, you will work on identifying and building the right quality partnerships with both agile start-ups, scale-ups and large corporate enterprises.


For instance, we have recently joined forces with Siemens to create digital and energy-efficient solutions that will benefit our customers and make a true positive impact on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.


With this unique opportunity to influence the future of our organization, you will:

  • Identify and recommend potential valuable partnerships in the digital transformation process and lead the partnership process, from LOI to agreement
  • Build relevant multidisciplinary project teams and lead the initial contact process at decision maker level
  • Support your team in building business cases and secure strategic anchoring
  • Formalise and maintain the ecosystem for our digital platform – which includes working with AI partners, data analytics partners, connectivity partners and subscription management partners
  • Develop a process to rapidly execute on partner engagement projects


Our office is at the global HQ in Bjerringbro; however, we are very flexible in finding a set-up that works for both you and Grundfos. You should expect approximately 30 days of travel per year to visit stakeholders worldwide.

Result-driven with business development skills

Your strong business acumen makes you confident in initiating action and thinking critically about our goals and processes. You understand business needs and can develop our strategies and models to achieve innovation and business value. Additionally, your interpersonal skills enable you to engage effectively with stakeholders at all levels. Finally, we imagine that you:


  • Hold a relevant master’s degree, for instance in business
  • Have several years’ experience with strategic work, preferably from IT/tech companies with a business perspective
  • Have extensive experience with relationship management from executive level to tactical level in global organizations
  • Have a strong background in executing complex and specialised programme management
  • Have extensive experience with operating and leading a project team or complex processes, preferably within business development
  • Are fluent in spoken and written English
