    • Collecting project requirements and coordinating the assembly of technical specifications necessary to meet the requirements
    • Identifying resource requirements, judging the technical skills and depth of experience required for various project tasks, and agreeing assignments with functional managers
    • Ensuring that projects deliver the expected outcomes and benefits
    • Managing day-to-day aspects of projects from initial development and feasibility, through implementation and up to delivery, including risk identification and management, milestone attainment and action closure
    • Co-ordinating work done by various technical experts and external contributors, smoothing the interface between technical teams
    • Overseeing material purchases and external service providers required by a project
    • Ensuring project documents are complete, current, and appropriately stored
    • Working closely with relevant stake holders, both internal and external, to ensure effective and efficient delivery of projects.
    • Regularly reporting project status to internal and external stakeholders
    • Understanding how the company’s needs and timelines will impact project priorities and act on them accordingly
    • Helping to identify and implement process flow improvements
  • Exceptional analytical and organisational skills, coupled with attention to detail
  • Excellent spoken and written English, with clear communication skills and an understanding of good documentation practices

And some beneficial skills (not essential) may involve:

  • At least ten years of relevant work experience
  • Experience with piezoelectric devices and/or touch screen technology
  • Experience with Cadence and Mentor ASIC design tools
  • Agile approach to project management

The candidate must be prepared to get hands-on and work in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment with a passionate team of engineers.
