Project Manager

About the Role 

Yes, we want you to lead an agile team of experts here, and we’re definitely interested in your expertise, however, we’re most interested in the way you do what you do.

You’re who we’re looking for, if:

  • You’re not too cool to care – you show up for your colleagues, clients and the community
  • You understand that you’re only as good as your word – so you do what you say you will. If something happens to prevent that, you determine a new course and communicate it quickly
  • You’re open, you act with integrity and you work to build trust and respect. This means doing the right thing, even when no one is looking
  • You understand that no single person is bigger than the team and that collaboration leads to better outcomes for better days
  • You’re curious. This means being willing to go to new places and be open to testing, learning and iterating as you go.

If you’re interested in working with us, please apply even if you’re not 100% certain you fit all of our criteria. We’re looking for smart people with similar values and a drive to keep learning.

  • Estimate, identify and engage the required resources needed to achieve project goals and track resource hours expended on the project through our time tracking tool
  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of our processes and documentation, specifically our ways of working
  • Work closely with cross-functional teams to make sure that each project is a success.


Qualifications & Experience

  • Minimum of 2 years’ experience as a Project Manager
  • Demonstrated experience facilitating healthy teams
  • Experience managing and delivering client-facing projects, across scope and contract management as well as commercials
  • Dealing with managing operational level stakeholders in client organisations (such as product managers or owners)
  • Reporting against timelines, features, priorities and budgets
