As the Team Manager of Eco-Runner Team you will hold the final responsibility over the project and the state of the team. You oversee the team by keeping an overview of the entire project, overseeing the short-term and long-term planning and by being in close contact with every team member. You will be the face of Eco-Runner, representing the team at presentations and to the press. You will keep a helicopter view of every aspect of the project to make the right decisions.
Your core responsibility is to keep the team motivated and provide a good cooperation between team members. To do so you need good people management and skills.
As the Project & Finance Manager you will have 2 separate roles within the team.
The Project Manager has the sole responsibility of ensuring that the car is finished in time. He/she creates and upholds the planning for each department/engineer. The Project Manager sets the deadlines and makes sure that these deadlines are met.
The main task of the project manager is to keep an overview of the technical and non-technical parts of the project. It is important to keep track of the progress of the different departments and to intervene when necessary. The planning of these departments must be merged, adjusted and updated constantly to prevent interference between different departments. Together with the chief engineer, you are responsible for all difficult decisions regarding the project. Being project manager of Eco-Runner Team Delft is a great opportunity to improve your planning and managing skills.
The Finance Manager is responsible for keeping the project within budget. He/she creates the budget for every department and keeps track of the money flow within the team. This consists of budgeting, accounting, making financial decisions and being responsible for all orders. With the different departments you set a budget and keep track of it throughout the year.
The Chief Engineer is directly responsible for the quality of the car and makes sure that it functions. You will have the final say in every technical decision and therefore must be completely up-to-date on the developments of the technical departments. You will oversee testing days and you are in direct contact with the driver during the race.
As the chief engineer of Eco-Runner Team Delft you must have broad technical knowledge. You will deal with different technical problems with the department Chiefs who are the experts in that field. You must be critical regarding every design that is created within the technical departments.
As Operations Manager you will be responsible for the non-technical aspect of the project, which consists of six big parts: marketing, sponsoring, events, public relations, design and scalability. All of these aspects are worked out by the Operations Department.
You will be responsible for making sure enough money is raised to build the vehicle, fulfil promises made with partners and organise presentations to promote the project. You will also oversee the press releases in the case of a big event.
You will play a big role in Eco-Runner publicity and will be responsible for our website and social media content. In addition, recruiting a new succeeding team and bringing the Eco-Runner to the attention of students in Delft in the second semester will be an important task. Your job is successful when everybody across the world knows about the Eco-Runner Team Delft. Are you ready to contribute to Eco-Runner’s growth and success? Apply now!
