  • Project manage a full-stack team of passionate, dedicated engineers to ensure efficient delivery of projects in a timely fashion and at quality
  • Work closely with the Engineering and Go-to-Market teams to develop plans and goals and refine processes to improve collaboration
  • Drive process improvements to increase engineering velocity while raising the bar for quality and operational excellence


Qualifications, Skills, & Abilities

  • You have a pragmatic approach to developing the right-sized processes that help teams operate effectively
  • You work very well cross-functionally and can make hard decisions and trade-offs while incorporating a diversity of perspectives
  • You’re an empathetic listener with strong verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to communicate technical concepts to non-technical audiences 
  • You encourage a healthy work environment that is both supportive and challenging 
  • You thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • Master’s degree in project management or related technical field is preferred, or at least five years of relevant experience in industry software consulting or implementation
