To succeed in this role, you will need to draw on your strong technical leadership and communication skills, enabling you to motivate, guide and influence your stakeholders both inside and outside the organisation.
You know how to meet and successfully manage stakeholder expectations while working in an agile and dynamic environment with deadlines, budgets and resources. It is vital that you enjoy a customer-facing role, and you are strong at
building organisational relationships and networking.


In addition, we are also looking for:

  • A candidate with a relevant technical degree at Bachelor’s or Master’s level
  • Hands-on experience and experience from own former development activities with technologies such as Java, C# and .NET

Working at Systematic
At Systematic, we set out to make the world a better place. We are passionate about developing the best solutions for our customers. This is why we challenge each other, our work processes and our technologies so that we are always at the forefront of developments and can deliver the best possible solutions.

You can look forward to an exciting working day, and close collaboration is key to ensuring that we make a difference in the world in which we operate.

You will become part of a professional and strong community where making a difference is central to our work. Together with talented colleagues from various professional disciplines, you will be able to discuss the latest developments to ensure that Systematic and Defence are at the forefront technologically.
