The stimulating and inspiring environment is ideal for the person that wants to understand the product development context to become a broader professional.

Role and responsibilities

As the EDEV Chief of Staff, you drive strategic and operational alignment between D&E central, the EDEV cluster, the supporting sectors and the Business Lines.

• Build, maintain and drive execution of the masterplan for strategic themes within the cluster

Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

• You have affinity with electronics and technology in general.
• You are a networker. You coordinate alignment between high-level stakeholders and therefore have excellent communication skills. You know how to influence without power.
• You have an all-round profile: analytical, strategic, and especially motivational. You are pro-active self-starter who can change direction quickly based on new insights.
• Leadership skills next to analytical ability with a pragmatic attitude.
