Swedish-speaking Technical Project Manager

Stockholm, Stockholm County, Sweden Full-time

If you enjoy programming but are looking for more varied work where you also have frequent customer contact and almost immediately are given responsibility for projects, then you are the talent we are looking for!

RELEX Solutions is Europe’s fastest growing provider of integrated retail and supply chain planning solutions. Founded in 2005, we utilize machine learning, big data, and logistics expertise to solve the toughest challenges in demand forecasting, inventory optimization, and replenishment automation. Leading retailers and suppliers around the world use RELEX systems to cut inventory and wastage costs, boost availability, and increase sales and margins. We are a group of 400 employees with offices in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Italy, in the US and our Helsinki headquarters.

We are now looking for a new Technical Project Manager to join our family of extraordinary people and help strengthen our technical presence at the Stockholm office, serving some of Sweden’s largest retailers. Here you will be part of a small and newly formed technical team, that is joining around 20 other employees that have mainly business and sales roles, as we are working on decentralizing our technical know-how from our headquarters in Helsinki. This presents the opportunity to get the structure that a larger company provides, while in Stockholm still having the feeling of a smaller and younger vibrant company. We of course have the obligatory ping pong table as well as a weekly appointment that we like to call Fika 1.6 where we face off against each other in Counterstrike 1.6.

As a technical project manager, you are responsible for building integrations between RELEX and customers’ systems and for customizing our platform to meet varying customer needs using programming languages like Java and Ruby. You will also participate in customer meetings, giving you the opportunity to develop your business and sales skills. This position is perfect for a person who enjoys both technical and business challenges. Why be forced to choose between the two when you can have both, and on top of that get the benefits of being part of a fast-growing company full of talented and driven colleagues?

We offer a young, international and relaxed work environment where everyone’s input is valued. We provide the possibility to grow in the company, and as much freedom and responsibilities as you feel comfortable with. We are serious about what we do, but don’t take ourselves too seriously. We get excited when facing new challenges where we can put our skills to the test, but make sure to have fun doing it. Now - if you accept the challenge - we give you the opportunity to experience all this and more.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Planning the technical specification of new customer implementations
  • Leading the technical implementation for new customers, for instance formatting input data, creating customer-specific measurements, and having frequent contact with the customer’s technical department
  • Leading technical workshops
  • Providing technical support to existing customers and internal support in sales cases

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • Technical and business knowledge
  • Programming skills
  • Excellent communication skills, our company language is English but fluent Swedish is mandatory in the position
  • Relevant technical or business degree with programming related studies as major or minor

What we consider an advantage:

  • IT literacy around systems such as Linux and Git
  • You master a programming language (knowing Java or Ruby is seen as an advantage)
  • Work experience from a technical position that included programming
  • Customer service experience
  • Readiness to travel inside the Nordics
