That's exactly what it means.

It simply suggests: expect no handholding and concrete directions. Very non-german like

In general if you can handle it, they tend to be the best kind of jobs but also rather demanding.

I almost always take it as a positive sign when it's mentioned in a higher level job. For a low to midlevel job it's actually a big minus: company doesn't have itself together, and you get more to handle than you will be paid for.

.. so what does ambiguity mean for you? It depends

Update: I did not get invited for an interview, apparently because of limited experience in one area. Three candidates were shortlisted, and most likely they will decide for one of them, but if not, I might still be in the race. But probably not. We'll see.

That seems pretty unambiguous. Better luck next time!

Heh, yeah. Seems they are able to communicate quite clearly, after all.
