With a solid focus on scalability, we lay the essential groundwork for sustainable energy solutions, contributing to the demands of a carbon-neutral future.


Responsibilities

As Software Lifecycle Lead, you have an important role in designing and shaping the solutions and systems for overseeing the software lifecycle, or both internally developed software, 3rd party software, and software for devices and appliances in the entire renewable power plant. You will design the solutions and define the principles that ensure the software deployed to the control systems, devices, and other digital elements of our power plants can be kept up to date with patches and appropriate configuration. Your daily tasks will include stakeholder engagement, requirement gathering, understanding end-user issues, and interaction with development teams.

You serve as the primary advocate for automation within the software- and configuration deployment. This role entails bringing all teams developing or procuring software for deployment in our power plants on the same page regarding software patch management and defining the roadmaps for the ecosystems necessary to succeed:

  • Serve as business architect on the software solution used for planning and orchestrating patching and configuration.

  • Guide the design of software deployment and patch solutions for 3rd party systems and components that are integrated into the power plant product.

  • Collaborate closely with software architects and design teams to ensure that software solutions are designed with patch-ability in mind and in alignment with defined strategies for software lifecycle management.

To excel in this role, you should bring a blend of technical expertise, leadership, and solid collaboration skills. Your contributions will not only optimize the performance of our power plants and reduce operating costs but also elevate Vestas reputation as a forward-thinking leader in the digital era.
