You will work in close cooperation with software developers, testers and release train engineers, however also with colleagues in other departments e.g. consultancy, hosting and support, playing a key role in driving the transition process that will turn Philips VitalHealth into a SAFe oriented company. We invite you to be part of a challenging and innovative environment.
