You will work closely with the product manager, business director, sales, analysts & engineering teams in order to achieve your goals.

Your Profile

You are an enthusiast: you love to present and explain what you do. You do that externally when meeting customers, but also for the DetACT team to explain the architectural solution to support the product roadmap and to make sure we are offering the right solutions in the right way to help our customers. Of course you are not alone and work with the best team containing UX/UI designer, Product Manager, Data visualisation expert, technical experts and developers.

You are able to translate the roadmap and functional requirements into a technical solution architecture and are able to understand the problems encountered by our customers and translate those into simple, cost effective solutions. You have in-depth understanding of solution architecture and have sufficient understanding of hardware and networking to create a targeted solution into the most optimal solution.

  • Take responsibility for reviewing the technical product stands with regards to market developments, competition, and technical innovations.
  • Assist the development team in finding the right solutions without over engineering.
