In this key role you will be part of a team of experts, project managing the deployment of innovative scientific software to “big name” companies. If you’ve the interest and some relevant commercial experience plus good qualifications, this could be the job for you.

These deployments are intricate and require diligent stewardship from smart people.

  • 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
  • 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
