|Attachments:||No File Attached|
|Application Close Date:||03-Mar-2019|
Understanding human beings is the ultimate challenge for effective human machine interaction. Our goal is to design human sensing technology to address real-world driving behaviours to make the world a safer, smarter place for drivers and the wider community.
Our project management team make this happen by leading complex projects with some of the world's biggest brands in the global automotive industry, to deliver our world-leading driver monitoring systems (DMS) which enhance safety by supporting drivers to remain engaged in the task of driving.
The DMS market is expanding rapidly as governments around the world look to improve safety on their roads and grapple with how to manage the driver transition in semi-autonomous vehicles.
Seeing Machines is engaged on a multitude of automotive programs at the forefront of innovation, being delivered by highly skilled engineers and scientists. These programs require world-class project management to deliver our technology on time, within budget and to the required quality standard.
The role of a project manager is demanding, requiring you to independently juggle multiple deadlines, resources, requests, stakeholders, and goals. At Seeing Machines, you're ultimately responsible for leading the success of our projects.
As a Project Management team, we genuinely love what we do - which allows us to stay motivated and focused. We thrive on being challenged, we have significant experience and we're seeking similar people who have:
- Tertiary level qualifications in Business, Commerce or Engineering
- Certified project management experience e.g. PMP, CSM, PRINCE2
- Experience working in a matrix organisation with multiple reporting lines and accountabilities
- A proven track record in the successful delivery of complex Programs of work including multiple Procurement, Business or ICT projects.
About you and the role
You'll be faced with unique issues which will require lateral thinking. You will need to bring more to the table than executing on time and on budget. You are an accountable, senior business partner, fully vested in organisational success.
Technology projects rarely run to plan without any unforeseen issues, but being an effective communicator, using appropriate mediums to communicate through and being open to discussion is critical. A project manager's ability to communicate with, and influence a variety of stakeholders is paramount to project success. Ultimately, it's your responsibility to maintain focus and motivation in colleagues over whom you have no management authority but are vital for project success.
Acting as a coach to the engineering team, you will draw upon your broad experience as a Project Manager to adapt to the constantly changing dynamics of a project while putting your customer's needs first.

To apply, please include an updated resume and a cover letter outlining your interest in the role, and how you could make a difference at Seeing Machines.
About Seeing Machines
Seeing Machines is a world leader in driver-machine interaction. We harness human factors science to create artificial intelligence (AI) technology that observes the driver's attention – reliably, unobtrusively, and in real time – and intervenes seamlessly when necessary.
Specialised computer vision algorithms underpin Seeing Machines' core camera-based driver monitoring technology. Algorithms allow us to precisely track eye gaze, head position and pupil size while our state-of-the-art AI technology analyses the data to quickly and accurately detect driver drowsiness, distraction and microsleep levels. We work with some of the world's leading brands to deliver this technology, helping keep drivers and operators engaged across commercial transport and logistics, automotive, aviation, rail and mining industries.
In automotive, we enable safer Automated Driving (AD) solutions and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) – including the world first camera-based hands-free driving feature, GM Super Cruise. In aviation, our advanced gaze tracking technology understands how pilots interact and monitor instruments – leading to better training and safer operations.
For commercial transport and fleet operators, the Seeing Machines retrofit driver monitoring technology provides real-time intervention for drivers to mitigate the risks associated with driver fatigue and distraction.
