Apply

As part of our solid growth journey in Sweden, we are looking for a Project Manager / People Lead to join our Cloud & Connectivity team in Stockholm. In this role, you would have the opportunity to combine your passion for coaching with a role as Project Manager. 

In the role of Project Manager, you will work in customer assignments typically leading a delivery team from Solita. It can be traditional project management, or in a role as scrum master, or in a role as an assignment lead for our assignment. You would be ensuring customer satisfaction and value of cloud and integration projects by working closely with experts in technology, account management and key stakeholders on the customer side. The projects span a range of industries and also vary in terms of size and duration. Our range of technologies in use is extensive and we always seek to stay on top of emerging technologies in all our projects.

What it means to be a People Lead at Solita

In the role of People Lead which covers the other part of this position, you would be coaching a group of 5-12 consultants with the aim to empower them and serve as a sounding board in their professional development and well-being at Solita. The role comprises creating professional development plans in line with the consultant’s competencies and career aspirations, providing the means for them to grow in the role as consultant, and offering continuous support and empowerment in challenging situations. You will also take an active role in recruitment and onboarding of new colleagues, as well as have the opportunity to contribute to the development of our unit’s business, processes and culture. We don’t work in traditional “teams” but rather organize ourselves in a way that supports each consultant's preferences and self-leadership.

What you'll need to succeed

  • Solid experience in IT project management, preferably in the area of cloud & integration;
  • Knowledge of agile/scrum methodologies;
  • A proactive approach and a genuine desire to help both the team and the client to succeed;
  • Perseverance in long-term customer relationships, and understanding and insight into project management toward the goal state. You identify challenges, risks, and moments of additional sales in a timely manner;
  • A genuine interest and drive to coach and lead individuals, providing the means for them to grow and feel supported;
  • Strong communication skills in Swedish and English – you have the courage to challenge and steer the customer in the right direction when needed.

We don't expect you to be ready when you join Solita – our community will be happy to offer peer-support whenever needed. 

What we offer you

At Solita, we strongly value providing a space and work culture where our people can feel at home. We strive to always balance our passion for our work with time for rest and recharge, and pride ourselves on our highly skilled community of friendly and caring Solitans. We truly believe in a work environment that’s low on hierarchy and high on autonomy, trust, and self-leadership. 

You can expect to be working on truly interesting and challenging projects from a wide range of industries. We strive to work with projects that create a lasting impact to the customer and society. You will have the opportunity to closely contribute to an exciting growth journey within our C&C unit, and work with a variety of projects, technologies and approaches!

We strongly believe in lifelong learning and want to offer you the possibility to grow and widen your knowledge in areas that support your aspirations through our knowledge platform.

In short, our people are all we have. We want to provide the support you need to shine, and aim to always serve as a pillar for our employees both at work and when life happens.
