Functie omschrijving

Our client is one of the global players in mobile entertainment services. Headquartered in Dubai, active in more than 50 countries. Active as a publisher and online (mobile) marketing specialist of mobile entertainment content (i.e. gaming, video and eSports). The content is acquired as “ready product” (3rd party content), or thru licensing (and then created and designed to localized products, always translated to local languages). The content is then marketed to consumers by a dedicated and professional international team of digital marketing experts, who are specialized in conversion rate optimization for each territory.

And important pillar of success of the company until now has been the focus on subscription-models through DCB (Direct Carrier Billing), therewith offering their customers a simple and seamless payment method.

Our client is now looking to expand its business by setting up (and expanding) an alternative business line, focused on direct consumer payments using creditcards. Therefore we are looking for a Business Unit Head that will be the key responsible for the development, implementation and management of this new business line / new payment-system, in addition to the current DCB-payment business-line.

The right person must have extensive experience in the payment’s ecosystem either from a Merchant or Payment Gateway perspective. The candidate should have a robust background in high-risk merchants or high-risk payment gateways.

This role requires Dubai-based working. Since this is a new business-line, the role could be on a (temporary) project-base, as well as a non-temporary position. Reporting directly to the CEO.


  • Develop new business: design strategic as well as operational implementation plans

  • Be an expert in translating all requirements to functional product specifications

  • Build relationships with business partners (internal and external) and act as a liaison to identify opportunities and challenges and to implement solutions

  • Liaise with different teams to ensure timely completion of agreed deliverables

  • Develop innovation mindset within the team with heavy emphasis on Return on Investment.

  • Measure the overall business KPIs through different metrics in order to achieve a high level of business profitability

  • Demonstrate technical leadership skills in day-to-day work; take ownership of critical issues where appropriate, drive work efforts to resolution in a timely manner

  • Effectively communicate and work with stakeholders to improve business success

  • Review and identify common problem areas that require focus and assign tasks accordingly

  • Work independently with guidance in only the most complex situations.
