Technical Project Manager for TrainIT

Have you ever travelled on a high-speed train like the German ICE or the Prague metro, wondering how sometimes your smartphone has an internet connection and sometimes not? How the screens in the train show next stop?
Modern trains are full of information technology - IP based networks, modern protocols like video streaming, voice applications and many others. This software is built with modern engineering tools, object-oriented, and based on the Linux open source software stack.

Our system is called RDA and it comes with custom hardware suitable for running in harsher conditions of the train (where it sometimes gets cold, wet and bumpy on the rails). RDA also comes with set of applications like CCTV, passenger counting, passenger information, integration with train control systems (imagine CAN bus in cars, but for train).
We are looking for a technical product owner who would help our Train IT team with communication to our customers and organization. If you have strong technical background, have experience with leading a small team and want to develop your organization and communication skills, please, read on.
