At Clay we’re building the future of access control. Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to a large scale, complex product and see real-time impact of your work on hundreds of thousands of users worldwide? Do you want to join a fast-growing company serving globally? Then look no further, because we’re looking for you! 


At Clay, the team behind SALTO KS, we’re building the future of access control and we need you to oversee our projects from inception to completion.

The Salto KS platform is the pioneer in cloud-based access control: From the start in 2013 we have been battling in the war against mechanical keys which has brought us to become one of the global market leaders in our core verticals: Co-working, Co-Living, PBSA (Purpose Build Student Housing) and Retail.

To make the integration projects run as smooth and seamless as possible we need a bridge between our products, businesses and external customers in the form of a talented, tech savvy and self-declared Technical Project Manager. Bringing structure to complex technical projects, guarding deadlines and budgets comes natural to you and interacting with people across different organizations and countries fuels your motivation to get things done.

Does the above make your heart beat faster? Then read on and join us in the battle against mechanical keys!

What you'll do

Part of our offering are two API gates to the platform: Our KS Connect and KS Core API. Industry leading customers of Salto KS are using these API’s to integrate their own back- and front-end applications to our product. These integrations and collaborations are impactful, important and can be complex: Here’s where you come in!

During your first weeks you will become an expert on the products and their organization by gathering as much knowledge possible and interacting with the members of Salto (KS) being the Technical Project Manager and therefor point of reference for all kinds of integration queries.

When you eased in a bit more you will take over the big existing accounts like the IWG and BBVA projects you will work on new projects according to commercial developments and internal projects on an ad-hoc basis.

Long story short: You make sure that what gets promised gets delivered at the end of the day by being assertive and catch and flag risks to stakeholders in a timely manner.
