Head of Team in the Development Centre for Smart Transport Systems – Brno

Job Description

Who are we, and what do we do?
Our everyday life at Siemens Mobility is all about cars, intersections, smart cities, and technical solutions. We develop solutions for traffic control for the new generation of intelligent towns and cities. Our mission is to make life in big cities easier and healthier through more seamless traffic and lower production of CO2. Our solutions are based on analysis of the current traffic situation, adaptive and dynamic operation, green waves and setting of priorities for public transport.

What is the R&D centre in Brno like?
Our team in Brno comprises about 80 specialised developers, testers, and traffic engineers. We also cooperate with our colleagues from Germany, the United Kingdom, and India. We pursue the agile way of working. We daily learn the product domain (transport and traffic systems) together with our traffic engineers. We focus on clean-code, architecture, automatic testing, and UX. Our workdays are full of brainstorming, code-reviews, and pair programming. Besides industrial standards, we are not bound by any other requirements. That is why we have a free hand in the way we develop. 

What skills and qualifications do you need to be a part of our team?

  • Courage to assume responsibility for your people – to choose the right people, develop them and care for them
  • Strategic thinking and ability to think a few steps ahead
  • You can navigate your people when they are at a loss, and you always have multiple solutions up in your sleeve
  • You can speak English (participation in calls, emails, your work's inputs, and outputs are in English)
  • It might be a cliche, but the never-ending desire to self-development is an important asset
What other extras will we appreciate? 
  • Ideally, at least a six-month business stay abroad from where you can bring new experience and elements of another corporate culture
What will be your job duties?
  • You should not be afraid to ask questions, confront the existing solutions, and change the deep-rooted schemes
  • You should be a part of the team, have an ability to listen, discuss, and understand the issues we are addressing
  • Ability to deal with various types of personalities in teams and help them step outside of their comfort zone
  • Ability to seek solutions across teams and follow through
  • Ability to feel and develop corporate culture (to work with people's motivation and their identification with the company)
  • Ability to reinforce and develop customer relationships 
  • Ability to support innovations on the business and technical level 
What do we offer you?
  • Hiring bonus in the amount of CZK 100,000
  • 25 days of vacation
  • Flexible working hours with a fixed core from 10am to 2pm
  • Possibility of working from home to better combine your work and private life
  • Corporate kindergarten close to the workplace in Prague
  • Contribution towards meals in the form of e-meal vouchers
  • Opportunity to buy Siemens shares
  • Multisport card or ActivePass
  • Advantageous mobile plan for private purposes
  • Advantageous offers for employees (e.g. a discount on a car or on a holiday resort stay)
  • Workplace situated not far from the Brno city centre, Škrobárenská Street, with parking options
IN ADDITION, you will have your own individual benefit budget (an amount of CZK 24,000 or 48,000, depending on seniority) that according to your needs and consideration can be converted into: 
  • Up to 8 extra days of paid leave beyond the standard 5 weeks
  • Contribution towards leisure-time activities in the Benefit plus cafeteria (can be used for culture, health, travelling, sports and education, including language courses)
  • contributions towards pension and life insurance
