Senior Project Manager – Electrical & Automation Projects (PtX)

Take your next career step at ABB with a global team that is energizing the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future.

At ABB, we have the clear goal of driving diversity and inclusion across all dimensions: gender, LGBTQ+, abilities, ethnicity, and generations. Together, we are embarking on a journey where each one of us, individually and collectively, welcomes and celebrates individual differences.

If you are motivated by project managing greenfield PtX projects, we have just the right job for you. At least if you find PtX and the transition towards a carbon free future as exciting as we do. The project manager is involved all the way from initial needs dialogue to overall and specific design with subsequent engineering and final commissioning. The projects will include colleagues from both Denmark and ABB’s international organization.

When joining ABB, you can look forward to being part of a rather unique work environment characterized by a very positive tone of voice, respect for the individual and helpfulness. We believe this to be one of the most important reasons for colleagues returning after having pursued career opportunities elsewhere. ABB is also a company that invests in you as an employee. Our project management certification programme is just one example – a version will be tailored to you on arrival.

You will be based at our office in Esbjerg or Middelfart depending on your location. Here where you will be close to other project managers in the PMO as well as colleagues in our engineering department. Flexibility related to working from home is naturally a part of everyday life in ABB.
