Meeting the need for smart mobility solutions 

Siemens Mobility, Inc., is the leading provider of intelligent mobility solutions that offer guaranteed availability, optimized capacity and enhanced passenger experience. The company’s business includes rail rolling stock, rail automation, intelligent traffic systems, traffic telematics systems and rail electrification. The portfolio also covers turnkey mobility projects and tailored financing solutions. We are in a unique position to create value add for our Customers not only for Siemens products and solutions. We call it Ingenuity for Life and we are setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s mobility – today.

Siemens Mobility Customer Services is a fast-growing business with a backlog of > $1 Billion. To execute this backlog on highest performance levels and to ensure constant growth, Siemens is looking for highly motivated and competent individuals.   

The Project Manager for complex Rail Solutions will be located in the Mobility Customer Services HQ in McClellan, CA. However, our Projects are across North America. This means you will cooperate with the central functions like Engineering, Procurement, etc. in Sacramento but might be in charge for a team which is working at the customers location. Your Project scope is typically centered around complete refurbishments, accident repairs, modernizations and overhauls on either Vehicle or System level.   

To ensure customer and organizational success, Siemens is interested in adding a highly motivated, entrepreneurial and self-driven Project Manager which has managed projects in the same or similar industries. The successful candidate is capable of leading a cross functional team, which is not reporting to the Project Manager, and to interact in a professional way with our customers.

This successful Project Manager will be responsible for Service Solutions projects in the Business Unit Customer Service (CS), which can be refurbishment, repair, maintenance, overhaul, or modernization of our customers’ and 3rd party’s rolling stock equipment. Refurbishment / Overhaul projects are usually longer term (3-7 years), while repair projects are short-term (1- 12 months). Maintenance projects can be up to 30 years duration. Our ultimate goal is to engage into long term partnership with Customers in which we jointly work on improving the overall operational performance.
