  • Experience in managing projects in close cooperation with partners and suppliers with mechanical, electrical and large SW content.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage complex engineering projects through a defined product management process.
  • Ability to build consensus among key stakeholders that may not be under your management control.

  • Ability to manage and assign specific duties, and create a constructive and cooperative working relationship.
  • Ability to excel in a dynamic and adopting environment characterized by high innovation speed, short time to market and fast ramp-up.
