Senior Licence Manager (f/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. 

Do you want to be part of this transformation and create new opportunities?

  • You will be the regional contact for Global Software Asset Management and Software Procurement, thus implementing the SW procurement strategy for SW licenses and SW services by jointly negotiating with Procurement and managing global agreements.
  • In doing so, you will ensure that the software procurement strategies are properly communicated and implemented, such as distribution of information and training or through webinars.
