Be an Innovator. Be a challenger. Be an entrepreneur.

3Shape growth has been steep for the last 15 years. 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! A third of all 3Shape staff work in R&D. Innovation is a central part of ‘our DNA’ which fosters a culture of thinking differently. Emphasising empowerment and taking ownership are key aspects of our culture. We are no longer a start-up, but we take pride in continuing to think like one – together we embrace new ways to exchange ideas and develop unprecedented innovations. All of this helps us to stay engaged with a broad canvas of technologies and applications. We simply think and work in an agile way.

Our team

R&D Management Support is newly established and growing to match the increasing need for driving changes and optimising processes in R&D. Currently we are 18 colleagues in 3 teams situated in both Denmark and Ukraine. You will report directly to the Head of R&D Management Support in Denmark and play an important role in developing the department. The working style is agile and fast paced – and with room for great fun and strong colleagueship.

The job

This position will require you to quickly take an independent role driving organisational change projects and assignments. You will have the opportunity to manage projects with minimal supervision and spar with stakeholders across the company.

We have an exciting pipeline of projects for R&D Management! These include improving transparency into market approvals, getting serious with Big Data, and reducing complexity and waste in our processes. Additional tasks include problem solving and implementing and maintaining initiatives which support all levels of leadership in R&D.

Your qualifications

You hold a Master’s degree e.g. in Economics, Business Administration, Engineering or similar with excellent results and have 2-4 years of experience as a management consultant from a top tier management consultancy or in a change management role in an international company.

You succeed by bringing structure and applying well proven problem solving skills to complex problems. You have a keen orientation towards stakeholders and the ability to communicate effectively and to navigate an agile working environment with a wide range of stakeholders across all levels and backgrounds.

As a person you are a strong executor, have an aptitude for change and feel energised by working both independently as well as in close collaboration with the rest of the Management Support team. Finally, you thrive on both giving and receiving high quality feedback.

We offer

Your development is important to us. We dedicate time and resources to pace your development into 3Shape, R&D and further your project management toolbox - doing our best to match your drive for development in a fast-paced, innovative environment with lots of room for career growth.
