Candela Stockholm Full time

Project Manager

About the job

Candela’s ultimate purpose is to speed up the transition to fossil fuel-free lakes and oceans. We strive to re-think efficiency in marine transportation and radically push the performance boundaries of electric boats and ships.

By combining sensors, computers and advanced submerged hydrofoils, our electric craft fly above the water, reaching speeds and range previously attained only by fossil fuel powerboats.

Thanks to their remarkable performance, Candela’s craft are the best-selling electric boats on the market. Our first model, Candela C-7, quickly became Europe’s best-selling electric boat after its introduction in 2019. Its successor, the bigger C-8 day cruiser, outsold the C-7 just 3 months after launch. We are also venturing into professional watercraft with the revolutionary foiling P-12 Shuttle/Business/Voyager edition.

We are now looking for a highly motivated Project Manager to join our project management team.

Core responsibilities

As Project Manager you will work to further evolve and make customer adaptations on our existing boats, projects of various size and complexity. You will work closely with multi-disciplinary teams of highly skilled experts from R&D, Operations & Suppliers, making sure everyone is involved and engaged towards the main objectives of the project. It contains many parallel design changes to track and coordinate from incoming request to implementation on production line.

You will:

  • Plan and manage the projects from requirements to industrialization, with an agile approach  
  • Ensure communication, flow of information and documentation within the projects
  • Be closely involved with the production planning and supply to secure fast implementation with low disturbance on product line

Profile to be successful in the role

  • 2+ years of experience in leading product development projects

  • Be agile and able to work under pressure to achieve short-term targets without compromising long-term objectives 
  • Experience from product development projects including HW (Electronics and/or Mechanics), embedded systems and/or Software
  • Experience of production in terms of industrialization, supply, and production planning
  • Able to work independently and take a logical and orderly approach to analyzing problems, organizing work and planning actions 
  • Be a kind and curious problem solver

Our internal motto is “with a revolutionary spirit and kindness”, which translates into an open and honest work environment – we have a lot of fun while working hard to achieve our goals.

We are a 200-strong, multinational team of experts within dynamic modelling, hardware design, hydrodynamics, control theory, machine learning, structural engineering work and production to build the next generation of waterborne transport. This is a full-time position at our office in Frihamnen, Stockholm. Working language is English, if you also know Swedish it will be a benefit for yourself, but it is not a prerequisite for the role.
