In this role you can fully utilize your technical abilities, your creativity and your project management skills. No two days are alike, as there is always something to discover in the Research & Development (R&D) department. You work independently and in growing teams in Berlin and Tanzania on various development projects, always keeping in mind both the technical possibilities and the requirements of our customers. If your way of working is both outcome-oriented and team-oriented, you will feel very comfortable in our dynamic, intercultural and interdisciplinary team.
The Project Manager does not need to be an engineer or software expert, but needs to have a good understanding of what engineers/software programmers do.
This position offers you the unique opportunity to, by the means of project management and its optimization, make a real contribution to the success of the A2EI and to the provision of clean, reliable energy in developing countries. You will take on a broad range of tasks and will have the opportunity to develop yourself both professionally and personally. You will become part of a multicultural, highly motivated team that combines innovation and professional expertise with personal passion for sustainable energy supply and productive use solutions in developing countries.
