R&D Project Manager

Would you like to pioneer the next generation of sustainable Grundfos pump solutions?

As part of our global R&D organization, you will join a group of highly competent project managers and drive dedicated electronics and mechanics specialists to help tackle the world’s climate challenges.


“The difference you make here can be measured directly on Europe’s energy consumption,” says Jørgen Vest Sørensen, Senior R&D Manager.

Manage mechatronic projects from idea to market roll-out

At our R&D site in Bjerringbro, you will become part of the Electronic Development Organization and lead the development of electronics and mechanics for our highly complex pump solutions.

Depending on the level of complexity, you will either have full technical project management responsibility or be part of a team of project managers driving mechatronic projects within a larger project context. A project typically has a duration of 1-2 years, you will follow each project from idea to production and early market feedback. Doing so, you will:

  • Manage all technical aspects of the project with a high focus on completion, benefits, time, risk, cost, quality and scope
  • Act as SCRUM master
  • Make sure that you team takes ownership of the technical solutions within hardware, mechatronics and software, so that they support the product requirements and the design supports optimal implementation in the full value chain
  • Participate in the Grundfos R&D project management network to share knowledge and drive excellence of our project management capabilities
  • Travel 10-15 days a year


”We have a very solid project-based culture here in R&D where we use traditional stage gate models combined with agile approaches.  Also, we are looking to strengthen our focus on how collaboration influences great project outcomes,” Jørgen Vest Sørensen explains.

  • Have solid experience with project management – preferably, you have a project management certification
  • Have a technical background, preferably within electronics
  • Have great experience with agile as well as stage gate methodologies
  • Speak and write English at a high level and it would be a plus if you also know Danish
