M&A and Business Model Strategist (f/m/d)


We accelerate and secure the energy transition sustainably and profitably. 
Siemens Smart Infrastructure Grid Software enables grid operators and industrial and infrastructure companies to accelerate the energy transition sustainably and profitably. We connect the physical and digital worlds with an integrated OT and IT landscape along the entire value chain, from planning to operation and maintenance. In doing so, we follow the design principles of modularity, openness, user-centricity, interoperability and reliability.  
The “Net Zero” challenge is leading to a fundamental change in energy generation and energy consumption. A seven-fold increase in DER installations is forecast by 2030. This ground-breaking transformation of the energy sector, characterised by a bi-directional flow of electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources and new consumption patterns, leads to enormous complexity. This is where we come in. 
Our big goal? We believe that software is the key to turning these challenges into opportunities.
