Premium car subscription services are not just revolutionising the automotive industry in terms of marketing to c-suite level clients. They are changing the face of automotive technology and IT jobs.

IT Recruitment Consultant Matthew Morris manages two of Crimson’s global automotive clients and has a passion for technological innovations and disruptions affecting this sector. He recently penned two articles on LinkedIn on this topic.

In the first, Matt shared his thoughts on how subscription models were changing the way that consumers view car ownership (click here to find out more). In the second article he interviewed Karima Haji, Advisory Board Member at car subscription provider Wagonex and former Group CIO at Mercedes Benz UK, about why car manufacturers believe that subscription services are the future (click here to read).

Karima-HajiWhen speaking with Karima regarding the technology behind the business model, Matt discovered that major automotive organisations want the platforms, through which customers choose and manage vehicles, to be extremely user-friendly to make the customer journey as streamlined as possible. This requirement has increased the need for self-motivated user experience (UX) professionals and business analysts with customer facing skills, who are needed to ensure the highest standards of functionality (click here to see more of their conversation).

As an IT recruitment agency, Crimson recruit into FTSE, BlueChip, and start-up organisations. We expect to see car subscription companies rapidly hiring IT talent to ensure their product is underpinned with the best technology, and they have the right people driving their solution.
