Knowledge for the world of tomorrow.

Here at Digital Industries, one of the main pillars of Siemens, we are the market leader in industrial automation. Our products and services are used in factories across the world, from car production to pharmaceutical plants.

We know that future operation will be different than today. And we want to be the inspiring leader, building the future jointly with customers and partners. Delivering real value fast, in collaboration, solving fundamental problems, growing sustainability, optimizing systems, and living the change, this is what drives us in our daily operations.

For this, we have created the Future of Industrial Operations, as part of Digital Industries. Our goal is to do nothing less than transforming the industry and ourselves, Siemens.

We are crafting a portfolio for tomorrow, iterating fast over new ideas and being in close touch with our customers to integrate their feedback back to the products we built.
With this approach, we are building the bridge into a sustainable world of tomorrow. Fast, agile and purpose driven, for us and the next generations to come.

What part will you play?

Partner Management: You will be working with the most exciting IT and tech companies to help us build two significant new offerings, in the space of OT Automation, specifically "SW-defined Control". You deal, on a day-to-day basis with firms like AWS, Microsoft, and more specific technology companies with expert know-how in IT and OT asset management.
Business Development: You like to bridge technology and business, and you have experience in doing so in a B2B context, ideally in and outside Siemens. You will steer the impact of novel business models, how ecosystems function and are monetized, and how platforms can generate value. You negotiate these values also with partners
Strategic Partner Universe: You understand and work with different partner types and their incentives to create win/wins, be it technologically, or G2M related.
Project Management in Partnering: You will run joint programs, or initiatives, and track the implementation of milestones or KPIs with the partners
Getting things done with the products teams: You work with the team and build and use a network within DI to actively develop those new offerings. Your hands-on mentality asks for how you can create value - in partnering, but if needed also for other tasks.
Industrial Automation: You have a high understanding of the Industrial Automation ecosystem, its major players, their strategies and you will use this knowledge to support the product project teams in their partnering strategies. You know Siemens major competitors and many of their important partner activities
IT proficiency: You will use your understanding of cloud / on-prem / hybrid solutions, to support the product project teams in their partnering strategies. You understand the value of such deployment methods, and can communicate this to partners and to end-customers, if needed
Siemens Future of Industrial Operations: You understand our Siemens program for the future of industrial operations, its mission and function, and the associated Partnering universe. You also understand how this prestige program supports the product projects but can also support the partners.
Communicate across boundaries: You will communicate across different levels - from developers to sales, but also senior executives of Siemens, Partners and if needed Customers.

What you need to make real what matters.

Your background is a combination of IT, technology, business, and strategy and you gained professional experience as a consultant, service/product owner and project manager in different organizations.

Very good University degree in technology and/or business administration
Many years of practical experience in Partnering, with focus on Industrial Automation use cases and technology spaces, preference for experience in Manufacturing, Product Design, Product and Process implementation
Experience in multiple SW-based companies, from a range of industries, would be beneficial
Understanding of the Siemens Future of industrial operations platform would be advantageous, ideally you also have a network across Siemens and the partner organization associated with this program
You have proven to work in and coordinate mixed team setups (culture, location, cross BU/function, internal/external).
You have worked directly, strategically and operationally, with significant partners in the Industrial Automation space and you know how to derive value from those interactions
Experience in realizing clear business benefits from organic and partnering activities, including partner-based G2M activities (based on financial and non-financial KPIs).
Background of a business consultant and strategy expert roles; work experience also outside Siemens is seen beneficial.
Multiple years of experience with B2B SW or IT or IoT topics - especially covering the interface between technology and business
