3Shape growth has been steep for the last 19 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 1,500 employees. No venture capital. No external investments. Just hard work, talent, and grit! Almost 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 two 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. We work hard to balance our agile way of working and modern leadership philosophy with the activities needed to scale our organisation, processes and systems.

Our team:

R&D Management Support is an international team of 15 employees dedicated to drive changes and optimise processes in R&D. We are situated in both Denmark and Ukraine partnering up with management and employees on all levels of the R&D function. The working style is agile and fast paced, with room for good fun and great colleagueship, driven by an ambition to consistently challenge the status quo.

The job:

This position will require you to take an independent role in facilitating and driving planning and cost reporting processes in R&D. You will quickly be exposed to senior management in both R&D and other functions.

Specifically, your job will include:

  • Develop and maintain data models and reporting tools in Excel and PowerBI
  • Develop and drive financial planning and reporting processes in R&D – incl. unit budgets, cost reporting, inventory management and depreciations
  • Drive improvement initiatives to ensure clear financial processes in R&D
  • Partner with good colleagues in our central finance function to ensure R&D contribution to financial processes and systems across 3Shape
  • Build automated data processes wherever possible – integrating data across existing 3Shape and R&D systems
  • Further develop project estimation and cost follow-up models for R&D portfolio of development projects
  • Deliver ad hoc reporting and analytics for R&D Management

Your qualifications:

You hold a master’s degree e.g. in Economics, Business Administration or similar with excellent results. You may have just recently finished your studies but have a couple of years of experience working with financial management, controlling, accounting or data analytics in an international company.

You have strong analytical skills and an aptitude for numbers. You are excellent with Excel, preferably experience in working with PowerBi, SQL databases and/or VBA. Your English is fluent.

As a person you are a strong executor and feel energised by working both independently as well as in close collaboration with the rest of the Management Support team. You thrive with data and set pride in understanding the details without losing sight of the big picture. You have a keen eye for stakeholder needs and concerns. 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 and R&D - doing our best to match your drive for development in a fast-paced, innovative environment with lots of room for career growth. Working for 3Shape also means an attractive work location in downtown Copenhagen, fresh lunch cooked by our resident chef in our new canteen, an international atmosphere and competitive packages to keep you feeling valued.
