Senior Concept Project Manager

Application Deadline: 
Location: 

Bjerringbro, DK, 8850

Contract Type:  Full-Time
Working Hours:  37
Employment Type:  Regular

Are you passionate about technology and by creating new innovations?

 

We are looking for a strong personality, who has proven to be a talented project manager and who would be excited to lead small teams of world-class specialists developing new technical concepts for future Grundfos solutions.

 

“Technology Innovation” is a part of the innovation frontend in Grundfos, and a part of our role is to pioneer new technical concepts that help Grundfos reinvent our core business. You will be part of a unit with world class expertise within many technical disciplines and with a focus on solving real problems for our customers.

 

What is the job about?

  • Your role will be, together with your team, to push new ideas forward from hypothesis to demonstration and – if a solid potential is demonstrated – then to push it through conceptualization and incubation until it’s ready to hand over for product development and commercialization.
  • You will be heading projects with a high degree of uncertainty and the task is to evaluate both the market desirability, the business viability and the technical feasibility.
  • Impact, flow and leadership are key words for innovation projects and through an agile mindset your job is to maximize the output on all three parameters.
  • Your role is to lead and coach a team of (technical) experts – not being the expert yourself.
  • You will work in close collaboration with internal specialists, universities and other external partners.
  • You will present and communicate learning and results to management and key stakeholders.

 

“In Technology Innovation you will be part of a super inspiring environment, working together with world class specialists and great colleagues. Even I have been here for many years it still excites me to see the very unique solutions we are capable of creating together“
… says Flemming Hedegaard.

 

What do you need to apply? 

  • You are passionate about technology and ambitious about creating novel and unique solutions that make a real difference for the customer
  • You have a strong background within technical innovation and know how to lead a team of technical specialists
  • You have proven to be a talented project manager and you are motivated by leading people and creating concrete results through others
  • You first priority is not to follow the project manager’s cook-book, but you have an entrepreneurial mindset and love to experiment to create results
  • You thrive by tasks with a high level of uncertainty and you see chaos as a positive challenge
  • You are persistent and you keep on pushing and fighting for innovations you believe in
  • You are an outgoing person and can easily partner up with both internal colleagues and external partners or suppliers
  • You are good at building relations and bringing key stakeholders close to the project
