The Project Manager will be responsible for the planning of these projects, monitoring the budget and the internal and external communications.

The ideal candidate has a strong background in project management (5-10 years) and broad experience in project management, customer interaction, engineering management and NPI development cycles. A MSc or higher is required for this position.

The Project Manager (Customer Projects) will:

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities

We are looking for a self-starting manager with excellent talent for planning, tracking and project coordination.  You have demonstrated the ability to maintain a helicopter view of the multi-million, multi-year project with the customer to ensure decisions are made timely and adequately. The short-term planning spans over several days or weeks and over multiple sites and multiple fields of advanced technology. In semiconductor technologies, the daily activities over the course of two weeks, such as a chip tape-out, impact the long-term course of the project significantly. The Project Manager is responsible, and therefore you need to have affinity with the detailed planning and how it impacts the long-term goals to ensure the long-term plan remains on target.

To be able to communicate and manage effectively, you need to possess general knowledge of electrical engineering, semiconductor engineering and telecommunications. As this function requires you to communicate with people outside the organisation. Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English are therefore of great importance.
