With rapid growth plans underway across Europe, we have German offices in Frankfurt and Berlin, and a third opening in Munich this year.

We are actively recruiting a team of professional, driven experts to join Linesight and help us deliver outstanding projects for our clients.

  • Support an OFCI vendor managed inventory program and administer call-off contracts for new projects or phases
  • Coordinate technical submissions from the supply chain and ensure they are compliant with the DC specifications
  • Partner with the supply chain to identify project risks and proactively manage these risks throughout the project

  • Coordinate with the Data Centre team, consultant team, equipment vendors and general contractor on all closeout activities, including the schedule and partner engagement
  • Assist in completing the handover plan, ensuring documentation is completed and expectations are met on time and with quality
  • Establish a supplier relationship management system and drive KPIs and quarterly performance reviews

We would love to hear from you if you:

  • Are an excellent communicator verbally and in writing, German language would be desirable
  • Have an understanding of German construction contract law
