Your tasks

​​​​​​​As Head of Krones Operating Platform (KOP), you are part of the six-member management team within Krones.digital Development. Your area of the Krones Operating Platform (KOP) is divided into two teams - the "Technical Ownership" team, where the requirements of product management are received, and the "Development Team", where the development of our digital products takes place.

And that's not all! Since the teams are spread across different legal entities and even different countries such as Germany, India and the Czech Republic, you are the central control point in the middle of a diverse matrix structure. You will lead your teams partly professionally and partly also disciplinarily - depending on which legal unit they are assigned to.

  • You are responsible for the "Krones Operating Platform" area around our KRONES line control, which includes our on-premise MES product portfolio as well as an edge device and network technology components.
  • You will lead the department both professionally and disciplinarily - with the primary goal of establishing, shaping and developing the KRONES line control organization.
  • You are responsible for product development, including the transfer of individual products to a new, overarching Krones line control.
  • You will manage the national and international teams in your areas across the board and also drive the further national and international development.
  • You are responsible for strategic and operational (customer) issues and thus form an important interface between the Development, Delivery and Operations departments.
  • You are responsible for the budget and cost center for your area and control it using appropriate KPIs. 
  • You work together with suppliers and partners, support the technology selection for the area and thus contribute to the further/new development of the platform architecture.
  • As an experienced leader, you are always responsible for the personal and professional development of the managers and employees in your area.

Your profile

  • You already have relevant experience in leading agile development teams and the software product development process.
  • You are able to lead a global development team in the matrix and manage the development projects in a time and cost efficient way.
  • You manage to inspire talents and bring them on board for your team nationally and internationally.
  • You have the ability to develop a vision and strategy and, above all, to consider and harmonize different interests.
  • With your strong social skills and your agile mindset, it is easy for you to bring your teams along on a personal level and to inspire them for the strategic and operational digitization goals.
  • You have very good written and spoken German and English skills.
