Your role at SIXT

Join us at Sixt Portugal as an Engineering Manager and immerse yourself in an exciting journey of tech innovation in the heart of Lisbon!

You will be leading two projects in the revenue management area with focus on getting the most out of our fleet.

One is an ambitious project focused on optimizing fleet planning for the future. Aims to understand, predict, and plan the perfect fleet for the upcoming year by analyzing historical and forecasted demand alongside costs, the goal is to maximize margins, enhance utilization, and secure a leading position in the market ahead of our competition.

Another one, also critical but more on tactical and immediate decisions, that seeks to manage the current fleet available for renting and take data backed decisions - past and forecasted data - regarding fleet movements across branches, ensuring the optimal margin transfers, infleet optimization to ensure right cars are delivered to right place and defleet optimization to optimize decisions related to earlier/later defleets and respective cost aspects.

These aren’t just normal projects but rather massive cross-functional initiatives that brings together engineering, data science, business intelligence, and analytics and that will for sure shape and revolutionize the future of SIXT as a leading mobility platform.

  • You understand that it is all about execution and delivery of value, even when roadmaps and priorities change often. You do not limit yourself by boundaries between IT and other departments.

Come as you are:

  • You have proven experience in managing and leading engineering teams to success.
