Head of Realization – Bringing New Initiatives to Life

Are you energized by concept development? Is your ambition to help Norwegian and international organizations build new products and services that push the agenda on sustainability? Do you think business should be a force for good?

You have a business- or design school background, and master business development with design driven processes and tools.

You are good with numbers and have experience with risk mitigation and evaluating market traction.

You have strong strategic and commercial skills with a proven record of innovation concepts developed and launched in the market.

You have hands-on experience with sustainability in business, and passion for using business to solve environmental and societal challenges.

You will be responsible for building and scaling this service area for Æra, together with our lead service designer.

Our team consists of engineers, economists, service designers, industrial designers, graphic designers, industrial ecologists, social anthropologist and business developers, all with the passion to make sustainability the entry point for all innovation.

Beyond sustainability Æra is a leading strategic innovation studio working from Oslo with the ambition to be best in the world by being best for the world. We believe the companies that will thrive going forward are the ones that define a relevant and commercial role to play in the biggest challenges of our time. This is the ambition we set for ourselves, and this is what we help other businesses do.

In just six years we have built a team of 20 business architects, developed strong sustainable innovation portfolios and strategies for leading national, and international companies, and pushed the agenda with over 100 organizations through our own initiative Floke by Æra. We’ve spun out four circular start-ups, with the fifth on its way, and been nominated for the Nordic Councils Environment Award ++

Our expertise is unlocking new growth through strategic and sustainable innovation, with a cooperative mindset, a design driven process and cross-functional team.
