You will be their representative at our headquarters and work as so, being the go-between person for dialogue with all departments.

- Be project manager for pilot tests of our products internationally
- Create and update processes and routines for pilots
- Coordinate internal resources from development, operations, sales and training
- Pre-sales support for potential customers
