Are we a match for you?

We are a dedicated and witty product management team that presently consists of eight colleagues in charge of four key areas: communication, semiconductors, sensor to cloud and product administration. With a clear focus on business, we're currently in the process of making Hilscher’s product management future proof, and have already taken great strides over the past few months. The work we do on a daily basis is both exciting and varied. A flat hierarchy lets us make quick decisions, and gives us freedom to be innovative and think creatively.

Due to our continuous growth and cutting-edge technologies like TSN, OPCUA FLC, SPE, and end-to-end IoT solutions, we're looking for a new team member to continue expanding the Technology & Tools product range and and someone who is eager to contribute to shaping the future of Hilscher. As part of our product management team, you will be responsible for the software solutions for our communication product division as Product Manager for Technology & Tools. In addition to protocol stacks for fieldbus and Real-Time Ethernet solutions, this also includes the associated landscape of configuration tools and device drivers for real-time operating systems. You will work closely in a team with other product managers to evaluate market requirements and create innovative solutions to our customers' challenges.


Are you right for the job?

You are...

  • An Organizer and driving force: Responsible for the entire product lifecycle, from the stage of defining product requirements and features, including the handover to the development team, to the market launch and the technical and market-side maintenance of the supported products. Your proactive and structured method of working will assist you in the process, along with your propen-sity to want to take responsibility for your work results.
  • A pioneer and entrepreneur: When drawing up the product vision and roadmaps, as well as specific requirement profiles for the next few product generations, e.g., for Single-Pair-Ethernet, TSN Gi-gabit, OPC UA pub/sub and security technologies, you always keep an eye on the market and have a good feeling for the wishes and needs of our users.
  • A trend setter and analyst: You evaluate innovative technological trends and product ideas from all angles, and allow technical, as well as commercial and marketing, aspects to flow into your in-depth analyses and business cases. Ideally, you are assisted by your experience in the fields of industry, automation technology and (real-time) communication protocols.
  • A key contact: Your role includes many interfaces to other corporate departments. Along with the colleagues from the Marketing and Sales Departments, you work on product-related marketing activities, as well as those from Development and Support, on technical solutions and features. Transparency and strong verbal and written communication form an important part of your work for us.
  • A representative and expert: As a representative of the Technology & Tools product group, you actively cooperate in trade fairs and get involved in industry events, assisting the Sales Department as an expert, with your product expertise. Your important responsibilities also include internal and external product seminars and events.
