As NPD Project manager in R&D Programs you will be responsible for NPD projects that develop new instruments and solutions for food analysis that are fast, dedicated and easy-to-use.

We expect that you have:

  • Project manager (3+ years) experience in larger complex organizations and projects
  • Strong technical/scientific background as Engineer, MSc. or PhD.
  • Business acumen
  • Strong facilitator skills and a desire to nurture good collaborations

Who are you?
As a person you are curios and willing to dig deeply into our customers’ businesses to find new ways to improve their food analysis work. You identify problems and optimization areas and create holistic solutions with clear business impact.

We expect you to be self-driven and a structured team player and a “get the job done” attitude. You are confident communicator and talented at building strong relationships, as you will be working with several stakeholders.

Working at FOSS
We offer a challenging job in an international and innovative company that is world leader in its field. You will get the opportunity to collaborate with many talented professionals across different field of expertise, and you will be working with developing advanced technologies to make a real difference for our customers.
