Would you like to grow professionally in a company that develops highly complex, mission critical systems for a global market? Then take this opportunity to create something that matters.
Join us to apply your expertise within large software development projects and take on this exciting and demanding leadership challenge to help us deliver vital infrastructure solutions.
Join a software centre of excellence
You join BEUMER Group to manage a portfolio of technically complex software projects for automated baggage handling systems. These mission critical systems are installed across international airports as a completely essential part of daily operations 24/7. We have the leading product on the market, and the office in Aarhus, Denmark, is an international centre of excellence within the BEUMER organisation.
Set the direction
Specifically, you become a member of the software leadership team in Aarhus, where you assume the overall responsibility for a software department of 35 project managers, architects and developers. Also, you oversee our collaboration with a number of sub-contractors and our office in Singapore. Here, you set the direction, as you contribute to and review proposals – and do capacity planning for current and future activities.
Take on budget and project responsibility
You become accountable for the budget and project execution of all new software contracts, overseeing 10-13 projects of 2-3 years duration. Each project can take up to 25-30 man-years to complete, and it is your job to guide, support and coach the responsible software project manager, so we can deliver on-time and within agreed budget, scope and quality.
Facilitate great collaborations
As you do so, you monitor the progress of the project portfolio, implement corrective actions when needed, and provide your support by attending meetings with customers, partners and suppliers. But just as important, you collaborate with your peers in other engineering departments to facilitate the multidisciplinary solutions that make software and electromechanics come together as an integrated system.
Skilled portfolio manager
As a Head of Softwaree Airport Projects, your task is to enable your organisation, so it can deliver the high quality software projects needed for mission critical systems. To do so, we believe you:
- Have a master’s degree and have worked in a similar role, as department or portfolio manager, where you have managed complex software development projects, including budget management
- Thrive in an fast-paced international project environment, where making decisions, handling several projects at once and keeping good relations to stakeholders is the key to your success
- Are an experienced leader of leaders and know how to develop and support employees, creating buy-in and setting a direction
- Have knowledge about software development processes CMMI or similar
- Can travel minimum 40 days a year to major airports all over the world, and you are able to conduct negotiations in spoken and written English
To lead a department of committed and highly skilled specialists, you will need drive, energy and people skills. Also, having the overall responsibility for mission critical systems, and working in a project culture, you need a heightened sense of urgency, and the ability to apply corrective actions in case of potential project risks. And you have the experience to facilitate improvement initiatives, so we stay a preferred partner.
