Software Project Manager

When a business grows almost exponentially the demand for talented and ambitious leaders grows with it.
3Shape has expanded by an average of 35% for 15 years straight – head count, revenue, and profit. From two guys with a business plan and a master’s thesis prototype to Denmark’s most successful medical device company with more than 1500 employees.

No venture capital. No external investments. Just hard work, talent, and grit.

We are now looking for a Software Project Manager in one of our core software departments where we pursue our dream: building the best CAD/CAM products for the Dental industry and improve the lives of millions of people in the process.

The development projects are run using agile Scrum teams consisting of highly gifted specialists - most of our employees are M.Sc.’s or Ph.D.’s. In R&D we have a high focus on Trust and Empowerment. Our agile teams take independent decisions without use of steering committees or control boards. At the same time, projects are run across departments and country borders. Therefore, stakeholder management is of very high importance and a project manager is expected to be self-driven and engage actively in communication with all parts of the organization.

You will lead a project responsible for developing the scanning workflow support for our state-of-the-art 3D dental scanners. As a Project Manager, you will be responsible for reaching targets for software component and product releases. This include high-level project planning, alignment of milestones with stakeholders as well as sprint planning with the agile teams. Projects are run according to a project model often include several planned releases. You will work in close collaboration with the Software Architect, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Program Manager and peer Project Managers. You will be responsible for the technical overview of the project while ensuring project documentation in accordance with relevant standards.

As many of our teams are self-contained, the option to combine the role with people management is open.

Your qualifications:

  • The job entails leading complex software projects with many stakeholders. It is important that you have at least a few years of project management experience - preferably from development projects using agile development approaches
  • You have an Engineering degree or a Master’s in Computer Science – or similar relevant education
  • Cross-culture leadership experience is a definite plus – our team members are located in Denmark, Macedonia, and Ukraine
  • It will count in your favor if you have experience in people management
  • A good cultural fit for our agile and informal work style is paramount.  Ideas win on merit, unnecessary bureaucracy is avoided, Trust is valued over Control. If you can live and breathe these values, then you’ll fit in perfectly.


We offer:

  • An exciting project management job in a fast-growing, international tech company
  • An attractive work location in downtown Copenhagen
  • An international atmosphere (we are more than 30 nationalities in our HQ alone)
  • A competitive compensation package
  • A fast paced, vibrant and – above all - innovative work environment where you get to work with the best people!

Please apply as soon as possible as we will be reviewing candidates continuously. We do look forward to reading your application!
