In a large project you may team up with a Project manager from Nexus or a Nexus partner who will have overall budget responsibility but often you are expected to take overall responsibility for the project implementation.

The work is varied and conducted in project form. As a Technical Project Manager you will lead various projects and have full responsibility regarding budget, resource and time planning. You will lead different kinds of projects within the IT Security area, often run in parallel and in various stages, from start-up to production launch. The projects are related to the Nordic market, varying in size and will in some cases run for a few weeks and in other several months, and in rare cases, years. It may be a question of a system development project, establishment project for a new Managed Service customer, or an on-premises installation of a security solution involving one or more of Nexus’s products.
