ALTEN Accelerate | Technical Project lead | Technical Software

The function

As an experienced technical professional, are you ready for the next step? Do you have the ambition and potential to grow towards the role of Technical Project Leader and does your current environment offer insufficient opportunities and guidance? Then the ALTEN Accelerate program is ideal for realizing your ambition!

The ALTEN Accelerate Program is specifically composed for experienced (software) engineers who have 3-5 years of experience. During three years you follow a training program and at the same time gain relevant experience within our innovative software projects. You also play an important role in coaching and supervising graduates. We also challenge you to further develop yourself in other areas, for example by giving guest lecture(s), speaking at conferences, organizing/supervising a knowledge evening or writing a professional article. You will be guided throughout the program by an experienced coach, so that you can optimally develop into your new role.

As an upcoming Technical Project Leader, you learn to combine and use your technical and leadership skills. During the process, all facets and phases of a project are discussed. You learn to use your technical background to define the project approach and to manage matters such as budget, time, scope, quality and communication towards stakeholders. In addition, you learn to let go of technology in time and to use your leadership qualities to achieve an optimal division of tasks and to manage project progress.
Within the team you are the one who takes the lead when joint actions are taken. Communicating with the various stakeholders is in your blood and you are not afraid to give your opinion. Standing in front of a group is completely in your comfort zone. You see software development as a means rather than an end in itself.
You become especially enthusiastic about the elements that ensure that your project runs smoothly and you are aware of the time and budget aspects that are conditional for a successful delivery.
