UX Specialist (w/m/d)

Job Description

We accelerate and secure the energy transition sustainably and profitably. 
Siemens Smart Infrastructure Grid Software enables grid operators as well as industrial and infrastructure companies to accelerate the energy transition sustainably and profitably. We connect the physical and digital worlds with an integrated OT and IT landscape along the entire value chain from planning to operation and maintenance. In doing so, we follow the design principles of modularity, openness, user-centricity, interoperability and resilience.  

The "Net Zero" challenge is leading to a fundamental shift in energy generation and consumption. A seven-fold increase in DER-installations is projected by 2030. This disruptive transformation of the energy sector, characterized by a bi-directional flow of power from intermittent renewable energy sources and new consumption patterns, introduces tremendous complexity. This is where we come in. 

Our big goal? We believe software is the key to turning these challenges into opportunities.

  • You enjoy moderating workshops and presenting results both within the company and to our customers as much as working on creative solutions to problems.
  • Ideally, you are familiar with the topic of digitalization of power grids.
