  • Scientific mindset – which you may have gained as a scientist
  • Either commercial experience of project management in the software industry, or a relevant PhD with clear evidence of collaboration with companies on commercial (not academic) projects
  • Experience planning the deployment of enterprise scale software to other companies/organisations
  • Understanding of the sort of infrastructure a major application needs, from networks to servers to databases – and how that might clash with existing systems
  • Preferably, experience with CAD, CAM, PLM or related software

You’d be joining a reputable, established software company with a great culture. As well as a supportive environment they can offer a generous salary, depending on the experience you can bring, plus bonus potential and a comprehensive benefits package including an exceptional pension.
