Senior Project Manager

Can you set a clear direction for large global projects from start to finish? Do you want to interact directly with top management teams at the world's most prominent newspapers and broadcasters?

Then grab this chance to put your commercial savvy into play as you place our platforms in editorial rooms around the world.

Moreover, you will join a global company offering various opportunities, a hybrid work environment, and internal mobility – all while you get to impact our project management.

Welcome to an international and collaborative team

Joining our Professional Services department at either Copenhagen, Aarhus or Hamburg, you will become part of an international team and company. We are responsible for handling our many projects implementing editorial platforms for large media houses across the globe.

We welcome you to an organization with a shared, palpable passion for the media world, as well as a tight-knit team spirit and a “family-like” vibe. Collaborating with colleagues from all areas of our organization, we work cross-functionally in an international setting – with sales, product, and development departments as close partners.

Manage complex IT projects with many stakeholders

You will be joining us at an exciting time, as we have started implementing new strategies across our organization. A part of this endeavor is to implement a more commercial mindset into our project management, and this is where you come in.

As Senior Project Manager, you will typically be heading a couple of projects at a time, setting a clear direction and ensuring that the commercial aspects of our strategies are always top-of-mind.

You will be handling all aspects of the project lifecycle from project start to delivery.

This includes:

  • Handling scope, work-break-down, estimation/budget, timeline, staffing and risk management
  • Driving customer meetings at project management level as well as at steering committee level
  • Coordinating with both internal and external stakeholders
  • Working closely with our consultancy departments to set the right team for your projects
  • Collaborating with other departments who also contribute to the project delivery

Experienced Senior IT project manager with a commercial mindset

You are known for your straightforward manner as well as your ability to set a clear direction, always thinking and planning ahead. You also know how to navigate an ever-changing environment, and with your solid communication skills, you navigate between stakeholders at all levels of the organization without difficulty.

Also, you are not afraid to take the lead, but at the same time, you are responsive to your team and see value in sharing knowledge with your colleagues.

Moreover, we expect you to:

  • Have 5+ years of project management experience, having delivered successful large IT projects
  • Master the project management discipline in all facets, ideally having a certification such as PRINCE2, IPMA or PMI
