Product Manager Cloud Systeme

Welcome to one of the most successful solution providers and technology suppliers for communication solutions in industrial automation.

Our more than 300 employees in Germany, Europe, the US and Asia work professionally and with enjoyment to ensure that our PC cards, gateways, OEM plug-in modules or ASICs are used by leading companies across the globe to communicate between automation devices and controls. Our many years’ experience and considerable innovation, combined with the team spirit of all our colleagues, have made us a world leader with our portfolio of solutions for field buses and Real-Time Ethernet.

And it doesn’t stop there... We offer unique solutions for IoT communication from the sensor up to the cloud thanks to our new Industry 4.0 / Industrial Internet product range.

To further develop our business and to strengthen our netFIELD Cloud platform and applications, for the earliest possible start date at our site in Hattersheim am Main, we are looking for a Product Manager (m/f/d).

What will your job involve?
  • You will be part of our Product Management Team and be responsible for Cloud Services, Device Management, and our Hilscher App Store.
  • In this role, you will be responsible for the entire product life cycle, the necessary measures and handling of the influences from relevant areas (e.g. UX, legal, marketing, technology and business).
  • You will create the product vision (product definition incl. requirement profile, product roadmap), form the interface with users and define MVP or MLP, and the priorities of the product backlog with the product owner and stakeholders for the development.
  • To evaluate the product proposals, you will create a business plan (including product market analysis with competitive comparison, sales analyses, target group definition, price definition, cost/profit calculation and risk assessment).
  • Classic product management tasks, such as market launch planning, product marketing activities and product maintenance are just as much a part of this as the implementation of training courses (internal/external), participation in trade fairs and events and sales support.
  • The role includes many interfaces with sales and marketing and other functions within the company, so transparency and good communication are an important part of your work.
What will be expected of me?
  • You will have successfully completed a degree in industrial engineering with a focus on software / digital business, or comparable course.
  • 3-5 years of experience in software product management and agile working, previous experience in the industrial environment desirable
  • Independent, structured, and responsible working methodology
  • Agile thinker who is able to assimilate complex and technically demanding subject matter quickly
  • Team player with very good communication skills
  • Office environment, agile methods, and tools
  • Very good written and spoken business German and English
What’s on offer?
  • 0% boredom: exciting tasks in a young, technically focused company
  • 100% planning reliability: an open-ended employment contract with attractive terms and conditions
  • Team spirit: a motivated team, with experienced, open-minded and helpful co-workers
  • Continuing education: available (and desired!) at any time by way of training days, library, webinars etc., as well as by learning from experienced colleagues and passing on your own knowledge
  • Many benefits: flexitime, adequate parking spaces, good public transport links, various shopping facilities nearby, coffee, tea and water free of charge, a range of sports on offer, flu jab, a subsidized midday meal, casual week, and lots more
  • And it is important not to underestimate that Hilscher is a family business through and through. We place value on personal contact, and promote an open-minded, performance-orientated and employee-focused management culture.

Are you on the lookout for a company at the forefront of technology and innovation that will push you to new heights and promote you in the long term? Then apply now and become part of our team! We are not looking for career types, who prefer to work with their elbows, rather than their head, but colleagues who enjoy challenges, like to have a laugh from time to time, and join in with commitment.


Do you have any question? Contact us, we are happy to help you!
