We are looking for an experienced Project or Programme Manager to join our team.

We provide a dynamic environment, leading technically skilled teams through the full product lifecycle, innovating on a variety of technologies applied to different market sectors.

We work across the entire wireless landscape - from high volume consumer applications such as portable internet-based devices, to professional high-performance systems such as the air traffic control radios used to govern US airspace. This breadth of wireless activity provides tremendous variety to our team members. 

What we can offer

A collaborative, supportive working environment, fast paced and challenging. A position offering you responsibility, influence and recognition.

The Programme Manager role offers a high level of diversity and interest and includes working closely with other seniors within the Wireless and Digital Services (WDS) division to develop relationships with prospective clients and identify new business opportunities.

You will Programme Manage complex product development projects, typically consisting of multidisciplinary teams (including software, digital signal processing, RF, hardware, mechanics and production engineering). Your specific responsibilities will include tracking progress, monitoring spend, motivating the team, keeping the client informed and ensuring that risks, issues and client expectations are managed along the way

What you can bring

You will ideally have a good degree in Engineering or Science, and have substantial experience managing projects covering the full product development lifecycle. 

You will understand the product development process and have the ability to lead teams of intelligent and technically capable engineers on complex, multi-disciplinary projects. To do so will require excellent communication and presentation skills. You will exhibit strong financial control – both in estimating costs, and in tracking spend against plan, and cash flow.

It would also be great if you had experience listed below, but it’s not essential:

  • Direct client facing experience, especially during early definition phases
  • Awareness of Project Management best practices (e.g. APM)
  • Experience in managing projects involving both software and hardware
  • Experience in managing products into manufacture
  • Experience of the wireless regulatory and type approval environment
