We are looking for Project Managers for two different departments in our organisations, to our expanding Product Unit Fighter Radar at Saab. Our mission is to develop and deliver world-class technology to our customers, mainly in the areas of Fighter Radar and Missile Electronics. We are a part of the Business Unit Fighter Core Capabilities, whos main responsibility is delivering sensor and Electronic Warfare products for Fighter Applications with Saab Gripen as our main platform.

Our products are used in very demanding environments, and our customers are Swedish and international governments and major companies with challenging requirements and urgent need of the products we develop.

Your role

As a project manager, you will work in one of our departments; Subsystem Design or Program & Bid Office.

In the Subsystem Design, we are responsible for the development and service of the high-performance sub systems that together create our system solutions. Here you will be more focused on a technical level, being an important player in our challenging development programs.

In the Program & Bid office, we manage all the contracts and projects within our fighter radar and missile area. Being a Project Manager at the Program Office means cooperation with all parts of our organisation, and often with external parties, such as customers and partners.

We cover all product phases from development to production and aftermarket services, as well as research and study projects. Our customers span from Saab internal, inside and outside of Sweden, to companies and governments spread over the world.

We are a key contributor to our offerings and negotiations of new contracts, being responsible for project planning, costing and scope management.
