This position gives us an incredible responsibility, which inspires us every day: making possible the massive adoption of technological innovations while considerably limiting their environmental impact, in a logic of responsible innovation and sustainable development.
What does the job consist?
In this innovative environment, we are looking for an Incubator project manager to take charge of a new strategic program from A to Z with the cross-functional support of a multidisciplinary project team.
Reporting hierarchically to the Senior EVP Innovation CTO and functionally to the SVP Strategy & Investors Relations, your role as Incubator project Manager is to ensure the development of this new technology, define the product roadmap and accelerate the execution until the industrialization phase.
To achieve this, your first objective will be to understand the customer’s needs and requirements in order to propose a new range of products and demonstrate the product value.
Therefore, you’ll interface with the “champion customer”, in coordination with the customer group.
In this phase, you’ll pay attention to define technological development priorities and Design To Cost options.
This will also require building and managing the product line roadmap, coordinating Go To Market and the life cycle of products in order to create a new business entity. You will need to ensure the definition of market size and price adoption.
Then you will enter the accelerator phase and execution of the product roadmap and we will expect you to drive incubator contributors while structuring and anticipating the manufacturing phase and coordinating the supply chain implementation, before finalizing the transfer of technology to the division.
Throughout the process, you guarantee a balanced budget of the program and define relevant financial models with the Finance department in a profitable long term business perspective.
You will regularly establish follow-up with the CTO, the Strategic Office SVP as well as with the ExCom members but will be a key interface at many levels and various departments of the organization (innovation department, industrial operations, global supply, finance , …).
Requirements & qualifications
You have an engineering background with significant experience (minimum 15 years) in the semiconductor sector which enables you to understand our technology and materials know-how in order to drive the product development and adoption.
You have been successful in driving major projects/programs that allow you to understand industrial, supply chain and financial constraints of such a program where we target to grow a product at a very fast pace from innovation phase to a high volume production target.
You are used to working in project mode in a matrix environment and this position, which is very transversal and rich in terms of relationships, requires real qualities of leadership and cross-functional multidisciplinary team management.
You are comfortable and agile with high-level international players on innovative technical subjects and you enjoy reaching out to our customer. You know how to transform a customer request into a lasting partnership where each party will be convinced of the technological and economic interest in traveling together.
The necessary skills:
– Very good communication skills (with partners, customer’s suppliers, team).

– A hands-on mentality combined with a sense of responsibility.
– Well organized, innovative and ethical.
