Senior Technical Project Manager 

Senior Technical Project Manager for Innovation Project Management Team


Where do you see yourself in the future? Does working with new product development and innovation motivate you?


Join us to lead global research and development projects from start to finish. This is a unique chance to leave your mark on tomorrow’s medical devices and help improve the lives of people with intimate health care needs.


In this important role, you will help bring innovative products to the market and get complete project ownership while guiding your project teams to success.


Join our Innovation Project Management Department
At our HQ in Humlebæk, you will join the Project Management team along with 15 dedicated technical project managers. As part of Innovation R&D, we drive and participate in new product development projects within ostomy, continence, wound and skin care.


With an increasing number of R&D projects, we need more project managers to set the direction for the Product Development work stream – from early concepting and design to solution lock and the final launch. This involves creating a product development plan and leading your cross-functional team to develop innovative medical devices, which are optimized for manufacturing and compliant with regulatory standards. 


Set clear priorities with a high impact
You will be managing 1-2 projects at a time and lead highly skilled project teams consisting of specialists within mechanical and industrial design, process engineering, materials technology, design control and pre-clinical disciplines. Typically, projects can have anything from 5 to 40+ participants.


This means that you:

  • Drive execution of the concept and product development tasks
  • Ensure that the agreed KPIs are met, and you will apply best project management practices to lead and steer the team members safely through all stages of the project
  • Ensure the deliveries follow our stage gate model
  • Carry out stakeholder management and ensure effective communication with all the cross-functional business partners to ensure clarity and satisfaction
  • Contribute to the PM Department’s continuous improvement initiatives


Experienced project manager with a technical background
As you will collaborate with stakeholders at all levels of the organisation, it is crucial that you know how to communicate and structure information well to get your message across. In addition to your your knack for project management, you will also need strong leadership skills to motivate your team to perform their best.


As a successful candidate:

  • You will have 5+ years’ experience with technical project management within an R&D organisation
  • You will have an education within engineering, technology, or a science discipline
  • You preferably have experience from an R&D environment within the medical device industry
  • You have excellent networking skills and have a proactive approach to learning new skills and ensuring personal development
  • You communicate effortlessly in written and spoken English 


At Coloplast, we make sure that you can be you.
