Software Program Manager


Change how we ride bikes and perceive urban mobility.

As Software Program Manager, you'll be at the core of creating the next generation of connected e-bikes, by designing game-changing products that revolutionize city mobility. As part of a growing team of engineers and designers in Amsterdam and Taipei, you’ll be reporting to the Head of R&D – Hardware and Embedded Software, and you’ll work with the entire R&D team. You'll need to have hands-on experience in managing programs covering the development of high-volume complex consumer electronics products, and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment.

What you’ll do:

  • You’ll help our Embedded Software team achieve even greater results.
  • You’ll drive the prioritization of activities, and make sure all developers can work effectively to meet their scheduled deliverables.
  • You’ll help define software engineering methodology, processes, and good practices.
  • You’ll make sure the Embedded Software Engineering teams in both Amsterdam and Taipei are collaborating successfully with each other – as well as with the teams of our third party suppliers.
  • You’ll keep the other teams within R&D and the Apps Software teams aligned with each other, and all feature implementation and timelines.
  • You’ll ensure proper testing, validation, and certification of the overall system takes place.
  • You’ll actively inform all stakeholders on the status of projects and technical challenges.
  • You’ll take ownership of the deliverables, schedules, and make sure you interlock with the other PMs working on the product (e.g. covering electronics, mechanics, and manufacturing).
  • You’ll ensure issues identified in the field have a complete review and are successfully addressed in a timely manner – here it’ll be important to link with the Manufacturing and Quality teams in Taipei.
  • You’ll help build a culture of accountability, measurability, and success – while giving room for people to learn from mistakes when things don’t go to plan.

What you'll bring:

  • A Computer Science or Electrical Engineering Degree (BS, MS preferred)
  • Excellent knowledge of agile software development processes, DevOps, and tools (e.g. Jira, Git, Jenkins, and Gerrit)
  • 3+ years of experience in developing and bringing to market complex, consumer electronics products (e.g. battery powered connected mobile devices)
  • Experience in shipping high-volume consumer products in a program manager or product owner role
  • Hands-on experience and know-how in every step of the process required to bring electronic products to production
  • Understanding of most technologies used in modern consumer electronic products (e.g. embedded OS, RTOS, complex SOCs, Android and iOS, middleware and frameworks, sensors, wireless interfaces, and UI)
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills

Extremely nice to have:

  • Experience managing projects internationally
  • Experience working with Asian design manufacturers and suppliers

What you'll get

  • 26 paid holidays for you to unwind
  • Pension Plan by BrandNewDay
