What you are going to do

In less than three years, Mileway has grown into Europe’s leader in last mile real estate, with a 380 strong team and over twenty offices in ten countries. Currently, there are approximately 200 contractors helping Mileway grow, with just over half of them working in the IT department.

Technology is key in order to steer Mileway’s stormy growth in the right direction, and to accelerate it even further. The new Head of IT Office will be a senior member of the IT leadership team. He or she will act as the right hand of the Head of IT and provides principles, capabilities and practices the Value Streams should adhere to. The Head of IT Office connects Value Stream Owners by defining strategic and substantive frameworks (the “what”) and using his or her excellent interpersonal skills (the “how”).
