Technical Project Manager (or Technical Project Lead) – full-time software development

freshcells systems engineering GmbH is a software agency based in Düsseldorf with a dynamic team of over 40 employees.

We do not have a hire-and-fire mentality; we prefer to kick back with cold drinks after work.

Among other vacancies, we are looking for a Technical Project Manager (full-time software development) to support our team in Düsseldorf.

Are you a developer who has outgrown programming and feels destined to coordinate projects rather than doing the coding work?

Our Technical Project Managers are an important link between the project team and the stakeholders. With their sound technological background, they supervise large-scale projects and support internal processes by assisting the entire project team with technical questions.
