Ballerup - Denmark
Published: July 17, 2018
Are you excited about user centric solutions – and do you want to pioneer new ways of working with agile software development within the hearing aid industry?

Joining GN Hearing, you will contribute to more than simply creating new software solutions. You will have a say in making sure that a generation of family members get to experience life to the fullest through hearing aids and software solutions, enabling them to once again feel part of the conversation.

Transforming life through the power of sound

You will join the Global Concepting and Product Management team where we are commercially responsible for the product solutions, hearing aids, accessories and software for our ReSound, Beltone and Interton brands. With our hearing aid solutions, we aim to make people feel included, and our goal is to help people hear more, do more and be more than they thought possible.

Define and secure the implementation of solutions for our fitting software
You will be responsible for fitting software, which is the application used by hearing care professionals to fit hearing aids for end users. The fitting software is the key element in our software solution to enable a great user experience for our end users in combination with our cloud and mobile application as well as our hearing aids.
This entails securing and driving an efficient concept, development and go-to-market process in close collaboration with key stakeholders across the organisation (including Sales, Marketing and R&D) to represent the voice of our customers to secure a user-centric solution.

Ensuring alignment with our overall portfolio strategy as well as market insights, you will:
• Drive the commercial development of our fitting software
• Define the scope for new product development within fitting software and provide strong business cases
• Convert software solutions into marketing communication in close collaboration with our brand teams
• Ensure deliverables part of the new product development process
• Participate in user and market field tests to secure user-centric solutions
• Secure strong training materials with the Global Training team.

A shared passion for making a difference
As our product manager for software, you will work with a large cross-functional interface primarily located in Glenview, US, and Ballerup, Denmark, and you can expect about 20 days of travel a year in connection to external and internal meetings and conferences.

We are a part of the Global Product Management department within Global Marketing, and our team currently counts 15 talented colleagues who enjoy an informal and relaxed working environment. Moreover, we are currently undergoing an agile transformation where the goal is to deliver true value for our customers, faster to market.

Great communicator with agile product management experience
To thrive in this position, you have the ability to combine technical and commercial perspectives. That is, you can translate new software advances into clear messages that convey not only technical specifications but the added value that will benefit our end users.

Whether you have a background in audiology or software development, you understand how to drive the process to clearly define software solutions. Moreover, you have:
• 5+ years of product management or similar experience – preferably from the hearing aid or medical industry
• A commercial or technical degree at bachelor’s or master’s level
• Experience with agile software development (preferably SAFe) and user-centric development
• A strong understanding of UX principles and application software
• Great communication and presentation skills, and you speak and write English fluently – Danish is a plus but not a prerequisite
