  • The project manager will develop the project plan together with the mechatronics projects manager.

You will set the costs and budget, and you will coordinate the activities and what capacity will be necessary for the project. You will also ensure commercial alignment with the account manager for the client.
  • You will support and guide the project employees and point out the bottlenecks within the project, and subsequently initiate and implement solutions.
