About the role CODE University of Applied Sciences follows a project-based philosophy of learning, in which students of all study programs (Software Engineering, Interaction Design, and Product Management) work together on the development of digital products. We are looking for a Senior Lecturer in the Product Management study program. Teaching at CODE is not like teaching at a traditional university.
We coach our students in their development and their curiosity-driven journey through the fields of knowledge required to become wholehearted product managers. We are looking for an experienced professional with a passion for enabling future generations of product managers in their development. As Senior Lecturer, your tasks and responsibilities will be: Teaching highly interactive sessions, with a focus on product discovery and data-informed product management.
Mentoring students one-on-one. Consulting student project teams in various stages of product maturity, up to student-run start-ups. Supporting the faculty team in tasks of academic self-governance.
Contributing to curriculum development in areas you are passionate about. Job Qualifications Candidates must have at least 3 years of significant professional experience in managing digital products in a startup environment or in the early stages of product development. Mentoring experience is preferable.
Relevant teaching experience in the academic or professional education sector is a big plus. Additional selection criteria include: Graduated with at least a Bachelor-level degree in Business Administration, Business Informatics, Management, Software Engineering, or a related field. Experienced in working with agile product development teams and an excellent understanding of agile working methods.
Experience in a role directly accountable for product success. A passion for teaching how to build products that bring value to customers and are successful in the market, with a special focus on product discovery. An analytical mindset and experience in data-informed decision making.
The ability to understand complex business processes and needs in different cultures and markets. Motivation for interdisciplinary collaboration. A sense of urgency, pragmatism and a solution-oriented approach to problem-solving.
Experience in attracting research funding is a big plus. Working experience in different cultural environments is highly appreciated. Fluency in English (speaking and writing), with attention to detail.
CODE is a 100% English-speaking environment. German is a plus, but not required. What We Offer You will become part of a diverse group of professors, lecturers, students, and network partners, where everyone seeks to learn something new every day and is looking for ways to support other members of the community on their individual learning journeys.
Since spring 2020, CODE is working in a hybrid setup. All academic events are held in remote formats. While we plan to retain some of the benefits of remote work and teaching, we do see great value in an on-campus study experience.
Going forward, we expect to combine flexibility in working times and locations with a dependable presence on campus. This is a part-time position with working times either limited to specific days of the week or specific hours of the day. Your preferred start date is December 1, 2020.
