International Senior Project Manager for the defence market
You have a customer value focus and proven IT project results driven by your leadership skills. This is your opportunity to work in an international environment where you will be responsible for service deliveries to customers worldwide, and, at the same time, you will support business development in the specific area.
As our new Senior Project Manager, you will have the overall responsibility for the implementation of complex IT solutions delivered to customers in one of our six customer regions. At the same time, you and your team will support our business development activities in these regions in close coorporation with our sales department. This includes preparing proposals and any other business development activity requiring deep knowledge of the products and services we offer.
You will have the responsibility for multiple projects at the same time, being a mix between delivery and business development. You will prioritise, coordinate and optimise activities across the projects, and, in coorporation with your colleague project managers, you will do the same across the service delivery department in coorporation with your colleague project managers. It is your responsibility to deliver to agreed scope, schedule and quality and, at the same time, maintain and develop the long-term customer relationship.
As part of the job, you will be gathering knowledge about the customer’s way of doing business and bring this back into Systematic to support development of world-class products and services for the defence sector worldwide. To do this, you will need to keep up to date with Systematic’s defence offerings while also acting directly as an advisor for our customers or bring into play the right colleagues that can help our customers improve their business.
You will be people manager of your own core team of highly skilled consultants, which you will grow in capability and size as we develop our business in the Middle East region. You will also be utilizing experts from other teams and departments to ensure the best quality in specific deliveries and to help ensure load balancing of employees across teams and departments.

Our IT solutions make it simpler for the users to make critical decisions. In the defence and healthcare sectors, critical decisions often concern matters of life and death. In both the private and the public sector, our solutions must handle large amounts of data, e.g. in the library sector with more than 50 million yearly loans. To be able to continue the development of solutions that customers trust, we continuously challenge each other, our work processes and technologies. We have a highly pro-active education and training policy with defined career paths and internal pro-active Knowledge Networks.
We stay constantly focused on making everything better. Our unique combination of strong principles from CMMI and the best aspects of LEAN and Scrum enable us to develop reliable, high-quality solutions for our customers and to deliver them to the agreed price and deadline. We work in teams, and some of our teams include well-integrated insourced developers.
We prioritise a sensible balance between work and private life, and our agile approach provides you with an excellent opportunity of being able to plan your own tasks and working hours to a great extent. We value social cohesion at the workplace and have a very active staff association.
Because we also work with security classified projects, all Systematic personnel must have security clearance. Learn more at http://systematic.com/clearance.
