Universal Robots A/S

R&D Software Manager, Odense, Denmark

Would you like to lead two Software teams whose UI and software development work is at the heart of the Universal Robots product?

Taking the lead on managing and developing our two Software Development teams of 15 employees, you ensure that we deliver top quality software projects on time and help facilitate our successful growth. You get a front row seat in our R&D department, and you will drive state-of-the-art robot programming experiences to the market.

We create collaborative, easy-to-use robots for companies worldwide
Joining us in our R&D offices in Odense, Denmark, you will be part of our mission to make advanced technology available for everyone. We do so by making industrial automation easy through the simplest possible robot programming experience.

Facilitate the development of high-quality software
You will have the freedom to carry your management responsibilities as you see fit, and it will be up to you to ensure that the teams keep pushing the envelope on software quality and cutting-edge technology. To achieve this, you:

  • Lead and develop the teams, which includes recruitment activities and performance management
  • Oversee the projects of the teams, ensuring they follow processes and deliver quality work – you will also carry out certain projects yourself
  • Facilitate and monitor software processes and Scrum teams, challenging decisions if necessary
  • Prepare status reports on the teams’ projects, including risk assessments
  • Coordinate backlog with our core product software development team in Boston

A leader with knowledge of software development
Ideally, you bring experience and/or an educational background in software and experience as a people manager. We are however also interested in hearing from you if you have a background in software and simply the desire and drive to become a leader.

“You don’t necessarily need extensive leadership experience as I can coach you – but you must be motivated by leadership and facilitating processes with the goal of developing high quality software,” explains Anders Lykke-Skov, Senior Manager, R&D Software.

To succeed, we imagine that you:

  • Understand software processes and software quality and have experience from a software development environment, e.g. as a Scrum Master, software developer or software quality manager or the like
  • Are familiar with continuous integration and continuous quality principles, DevOps and test-driven development
  • Know tools such as Java, Angular and .NET Core
  • Speak and write English effortlessly
