You should have demonstrated capabilities of organizing multiple workstreams to enable a team to focus on the right work, right now. You'll use your experience in using disciplined change management, project portfolio management, and risk management strategies in everyday practice.

We're also seeking experience in using a team-centric project management system, which is governed by a phase gate development framework. You enjoy bringing forward new ideas and concepts without being prompted and have the initiative and skills to adequately implement changes they see necessary. You have capability for coaching all levels of the organization, including in the adoption of the new methods and processes, and exhibit infectious leadership that inspires and creates excitement when working through challenges.

  • Monitor and assess program performance with a focus on cost, quality, schedule and risk.

  • As a team member, effectively communicate with leadership, peers, customers, suppliers, and contract manufacturers.

  • Be energized by our challenges with the ability to effectively convince others of recommendations.

What Are We Looking For?

  • B.S. degree in mechanical or electrical engineering or equivalent experience.

  • Relevant experience as a Project Manager in a matrix organization with hands-on experience in complex high-tech or electro-mechanical project management, including resource planning and budgeting.

  • Experience managing the development process from concept to high volume production of electro-mechanical systems.

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills; able to build effective team relationships and efficiently mediate teams to achieve consensus.


All members of Alert Innovation practice the following values as part of their daily responsibilities and model these values as she/he leads or supports their teams.

  • The Golden Rule: Extraordinarily powerful in its simplicity and depth: “Treat others as you would want to be treated.”

  • The Power of Person: The contribution of every single person in a company is important, and the performance of the entire company can only be maximized when every person strives to achieve his/her full potential and to contribute to the best of his/her ability.

  • The Power of Team: The Power of Person becomes amplified exponentially when a group of people working effectively as a team creates “performance synergy”, whereby the capacity to perform as a team is much greater than the sum of the individual members’ capacities.

  • The Power of Truth: We strive to see the world as it is, not as we want or imagine it to be, because only then can we make it better. This core value manifests itself through questioning, probing, testing, measuring, validating, verifying, proving, listening with an open mind, and making fact-based decisions. It also fosters transparency and honesty with others, as well as self-examination and self-honesty.
