(Senior) business designer, Munich

What you will be doing

MING Labs is looking for a (Senior) Business Designer to coordinate the strategic offering in our Berlin or Munich office. If you have a knack for blending left and right brain, entrepreneurial mindset and boardroom polish, and guiding clients through transformation journeys - awesome, we’d definitely like to hear from you! 

As our new (Senior) Business Designer, you’ll identify the most promising opportunities for new value creation and capture, and translate them into new digital businesses, products or services. And you’ll help our clients develop internal capabilities to drive and implement innovation.

You’ll be working closely with our customers, our international team of business designers and with the local teams of experience designers, software engineers and project managers. We believe that small teams of dedicated experts can bring off more than huge hierarchical delivery organizations, and are more fun to work with, too!

Within our interdisciplinary team you’ll play a key role in these areas:

Business design and strategic consultancy to our clients.

Analysis of consumer, market, competitive and financial data to derive actionable insights.

Development of business concepts, models and cases.

Creation of organizational frameworks and operating models to help drive innovation.

Frameworking personas, customer journeys, etc.

Workshop facilitation with stakeholders.

Client leadership, representing MING in a credible and accountable way, being an active player with clients and communicating through powerful storytelling.

Cultivate client relationships to promote related work.

Lead project teams and work-streams to tackle business problems through innovative approaches.

Contribute to the Business Development activities of the company.

What we are looking for

3+ years of experience as a Business Designer or in a related role, ideally at a top-level digital/design agency or an innovation consulting company, where you’ve worked with the client directly.

You have a track record of leading strategic projects from inception to delivery.

You have a deep understanding of how to conduct business analysis and synthesize multiple sources of data to derive actionable insights.

You have experience working with Design Thinking and Lean/Agile methodologies.

You’re a team player and experienced in collaborating with multidisciplinary teams, including designers and developers.

Excellent (business fluent) communication and negotiation skills in English and ideally, German.

You’re willing to travel and work on site with our clients when needed.

Our team is full of smart and dedicated folks who excel in their professions (and are fun to work with, too).

With our diverse projects and clients, there’s always something new to learn - our clients are keeping us busy!

We have regular design exchange activities, team events (remote now as needed) and much more (with a glass of wine or two sometimes).
