Here, you will be the primary contact to the electronics production sites in Grundfos, acting as a business consultant to key stakeholders. You will be part of a highly skilled team of developers, supporters and specialists, and you will play an important role in shaping the way Production IT supports the electronics production.
Specifically, you will drive the cross-functional collaboration with our IT division as well as with the business to gain a holistic view of the electronics production and define business projects accordingly. Clarifying the needs of the business and translating requirements into new or existing solutions in the portfolio of IT applications, you strive to balance development of new functionalities with the reuse of on-the-shelf solutions. Doing so, you actively influence the strategy and direction for the electronics production.
“You will be the go-to person for applications for the electronics area. And with that responsibility comes ample opportunity to influence the area. Right now, we are in the process of replacing some of our existing systems with new ones like Microsoft Azure. You will have the opportunity to help us rethink everything,” says manager of Production IT Solutions Kristian Kragh.

To succeed in this, you work closely with the business as well as with the electronics production and your team in Production IT,” says Kristian Kragh.
Consultant with experience in electronics production
You are a natural-born consultant because you excel at stakeholder management and communicate efficiently with shop floor operators and managers alike. Moreover, you excel at giving presentations and explaining how new technology solutions add value to the business, because you motivate and convince stakeholders with ease. At the same time, your curious nature drives you to seek inspiration from outside the organization by participating in seminars and exchanging insights with similar production companies.
”In this role, it is important that you have general knowledge of app development as well as of the manufacturing environment and the business in order to translate requirements into highly functional solutions. And equally importantly, you need to be able to communicate efficiently in all three areas,” says Kristian Kragh.
