Senior Product Development Consultant Software and Electronics

Modular Management Sweden


Do you want to transform the industry? Modular Management is a consulting firm that works with international companies to create and deploy market-driven product platforms, built on modular principles. In this role you will work with some of the greatest companies in the world, in industries as varied as home appliances, robotics, telecom, and construction.

What You Will Do

You will be a part of a team delivering cross-functional programs at major industrial/product companies that range from a few months to several years. Together with your colleagues you will support the customers’ transformation journey based on Modular Management’s leading insight in how modularization, configuration, and composable product platforms are fundamental for improved business profitability.

In this role, you will work as a consultant to guide our customers to structure and design software and/or electronics architecture to fulfil system requirements on reusability, scalability, and performance, considering interactions between mechanics, electronics and software. You will be working with a team of consultants from Modular Management as well as with teams of our customers. The main task is not to code or to design, but to coach clients, take part in method development and facilitate cross-functional collaboration.

Typical tasks:

  • Drive, follow up and report workstreams together with customer to ensure plans and targets are met.
  • Lead, support and document customer workshops
  • Gather and analyse relevant information from different stakeholders at customer.
  • Suggest improvements based on findings and create action plans.
  • Document product architecture data in our unique platform management software, PALMA.

You will also contribute to Modular Management's method development, continuously seek new knowledge, build networks, and take part in business development. Additionally, you will serve as a mentor to more junior colleagues.

What We Offer

If you enjoy working with top colleagues in a global setting, we can offer great development opportunities. The position is based at our head office in central Stockholm, but to a great extent the job can be performed remotely with the flexibility to manage your own time. Travelling to clients occurs on a regular basis.

In a smaller, niche consultancy you will get to learn all parts of the business. We all work as consultants in a non-hierarchical organization, where even the most experienced consultants share similar tasks with new employees. Staff turnover is low, the company prioritizes work-life balance, and you get to learn something new every day. We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package.

Skills and Experience

For this position we think you have a solid background in software engineering and or/electronics design. We see that you have a minimum of 5 years of experience in one of these two areas. Several areas could be relevant for this position for example product development, product engineering, product management or project management within a major industrial company. Another possible background is that you work at a technology consultancy, want a strategic role in the projects, and to see the entire value chain.

Specifically, we see that you have:

  • University degree in a relevant field such as: Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Industrial Engineering with focus on software or electronics or other similar programs.
  • More than 5 years work experience from product development in the fields of Software and/or Electronics
  • Fluency in English, both verbally and in writing
  • Great people skills to be able to work with people in different roles and cultures

It is meriting if you:

  • Speak Swedish, German or other languages
  • Have product or project management experience
  • Have experience from working with product architectures/product platforms/complex product portfolios
  • Have consulting experience
