• Engaging with stakeholders concerning the establishment of Service Level Agreements, as well as ensuring that agreed SLAs are met for incidents and service requests.
• Driving continuous improvement/automation concerning the technical platform tasks.
• Driving continuous improvement when it concerns security and disaster recovery.

The offer - Electrolux offers an exciting and challenging job opportunity in an international environment, with a high degree of independence and entrepreneurship. 
The Electrolux Group provides career opportunities within a global, fast moving, growing yet lean organization. This role will have several touch points within the company.
