3Shape is a world leading technology company headquartered in Copenhagen which offers unique career opportunities in the fields of Software, Mechanical Engineering, Optics, and Electrical Engineering.

Our aim is to lead digital dentistry in the global market creating value for our customers and improving the lives of patients like you and me.

In 3Shape R&D we are proud of our empowered, team-centric working culture where you can be sure to meet highly skilled, educated, and diverse teammates (we have R&D sites in Copenhagen, Kiev, Skopje, and Szczecin – and in our HQ alone we are 30 different nationalities).

In the early days of the new year, we are setting up a team charged with developing Medical Software targeting a high-value customer segment. The team’s mission comes directly from the company’s Board of Directors and therefore has a high degree of Top Management attention.

The position

We are looking for a Project Manager that can fulfill the following three goals:

  • Lead the project through planning, development, testing, and releases.

The team runs agile, and there is a SCRUM Master assigned to assist in facilitation of this process, but the final responsibility for deliverables lies with the Project Manager.

Since the end-product is considered a Medical Device, documentation requirements (ISO13485) must be fulfilled by the Project Manager together with the team. 

  • Facilitate and engage in strategic planning of the roadmap with top level stakeholders.

The product roadmap is evolving continuously and is negotiated between a strong trio consisting of a Technical Product Owner, a customer segment representative, and the R&D Project Manager (you!)

  • People Management of the Danish part of the development team.

Currently the Danish side of the development team is 3 people strong (including the Project Manager). Since we believe in project ownership of mission and resources, ideally, the Project Manager is also a People Manager / Team Lead.

Five team members are in Kiev, Ukraine with a local people manager, but the Project Manager has a shared responsibility for the proper functioning and well-being of the entire team.


We are looking for a person matching most or all of the following:

  • Experienced Project Management profile with Software background and/or knowledge
  • Experience with SCRUM or other agile methodologies
  • Experience with regulatory documentation is a plus, but on-the-job training is offered
  • Comfortable working in an organization where ownership of the product and resources is centered around independent project teams
  • Comfortable with English as a working language
  • An educational background in Computer Science, Engineering, or similar
  • Ability to negotiate with top-level stakeholders across the organization
  • Prior experience with or the desire to take on people management

We offer

Join one of the most exiting tech companies in the medical device industry and make a real impact. With us you will be able to work on solutions used by thousands of dental professionals worldwide! Moreover, we offer:

  • An attractive, international workplace in the center of Copenhagen, with highly skilled and committed colleagues in an informal work environment
