Digital Project Manager (f/m)

Digital Project Manager (f/m)

Schacht One is the dedicated pioneer for digital innovation within the Haniel Group. We identify, validate, and incubate digital opportunities to generate revenue and establish new sources of income. With this we enable Haniel to stay “enkelfähig”.

We are a subsidiary of “Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH” located at the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage Site. Schacht One stands for innovation, perseverance, and authenticity! Some 165 years ago, Franz Haniel laid the foundation for the industrialization of the Ruhr by mass-mining coveted fat coal at Pit 1 of the Zollverein mine. At Schacht One, we now mine the fuel for growth in the future: digital ideas.

As Digital Project Manager (m/w), you will work in digital projects together with your teammates, our customers, and external partners. Your goal is to identify and drive digital opportunities in the digital journeys of Haniel’s business units. 

At Schacht One, we employ design thinking and lean-startup methods.  It’s in our DNA to always act as a partner of our customers, not external consultants. Depending on your prior professional expertise, you will be able to lead your own digital projects early on.

Just like our customers, your tasks and projects will be extremely diverse. Moreover, many projects have high visibility within the customers’ management boards and even the Haniel board. 

When working at Schacht One, you will have to keep up with both worlds: startup-like and ultra-short decision-making, as well as corporate management routines.

It’s up to you to make our team not only bigger, but better!

When we think about you, we believe you should... 

  • ... have gained initial experience in fueling digital opportunities during your studies and prior working history 
  • … like to work in a dynamic environment in which constant learning and the watercooler chat with your teammates are more important than the 5-star cantina
  • … bring along a good understanding of technology’s impact on business models 
  • … have an entrepreneurial spirit, but don't get too frustrated with corporate complexity
  • … be fluent in German and English 
  • … stand out from the crowd with regards to your innovation and project management skills. Experience in online marketing and/or UX design could help our digital projects, but are not a prerequisite

Workplace & Culture

 Schacht One feels like a startup with corporate DNA. Of course, we have table-tennis and foosball tables. Of course, we don't wear suits and ties. And yes, our offices look really cool. However, we still care a great deal about "corporate challenges".

 We believe teamwork is key, making personal fit the most crucial job requirement. Aside from our professional passion for change and innovation, we still want to have a lot of fun together.
