ABOUT THE APPLIEDAI INITIATIVE
The appliedAI Initiative is Germany’s largest initiative for fostering the application of AI technology in the German industrial landscape. We shape Europe’s innovative power in AI together with leading companies and tech players. We do this through close sparring and interaction with our partners on neutral ground based on delivering a unique set of assets and individual services. We build on deep technical expertise while focusing on applicability of the solutions. We create visions in the age of AI for Germany as a society, for us in a world of climate change as well as in our economy. We guide our partners to achieve their ambition in a world we want to live in.
One aspect of this is to deliver assets to our partners that help them advance in AI maturity. Those assets can be as large as our globally recognized maturity assessment tool or our learning management platform with thousands of learners or as specific as an interactive use case library.
The technical product team’s role is to collaborate with the product owner of the asset teams and manage the development and delivery of these different products. Being the leading AI initiative, we have the aim to also embed AI powered tools in our own asset creation or delivery.

Demonstrated ownership over a product in a previous role, including responsibilities for backlog prioritisation, goal-setting and go to market strategy setting.
