You’ll have an immediate impact in a critical role in helping advance this Frankfurt-based company’s digital strategy. As an external specialist, you’ll bring key skills and experience that the team currently lacks and use these to move the project forward.

The company’s transformation programme unit is integral to its digital strategy. Using specific software, both basic and value-adding use cases are developed and implemented in this unit.

  • Creating and storing monthly project reports in P360 (project management tool)
  • Organising, implementing and planning weekly project meetings based on a fixed list of participants
  • Reviewing existing Digital Maturity Assessment (DMA) documents based on the project meetings.


To enable the above, you’ll have skills in the following areas:

  • Excellent (C1 or above) English communication skills.
  • Excellent German communication skills.
  • Skilled in platform delivery, team-building, influencing and networking.
  • Strong and proactive leadership skills, whereby you can demonstrate you’re effective at decision-making, time management, conflict resolution/intervention and precise project management.
  • Strong business insight, analytical and problem-solving skills alongside the ability to look at the ‘bigger picture’ with an attention to detail.


You’ll also bring:

  • Bachelors or Master’s degrees in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering (or similar fields).
  • At least five years of project management experience (certifications preferred).
  • Experience in multiple, concurrent agile deployment projects in major global companies and multicultural environments.
  • Knowledge of agile methodologies and tools (SCRUM and Kanban).
  • Understanding system integration technologies.
  • Experience with automation engineering technology preferred.
  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholders in a highly regulated environment.
  • Record of accomplishment in implementing technologies.

You’ll be calm, confident and comfortable engaging with junior and senior colleagues.
