Do you get a kick out of getting things done? Are you comfortable being the glue that binds disparate teams together, whilst simultaneously being the lube that keeps everything moving smoothly?
We’ve just completed a significant round of investment and are growing fast, kicking-off numerous initiatives across every facet of the business and we’re looking for a passionate, super-organised project manager to help make it happen. Now is the perfect time to carve out a dream career in a fast-paced SaaS company about to go global.
This role is not for the faint of heart. It’s a sleeves-up, hands-on, plate-spinning rollercoaster of a position, working with a world-class team of talented engineers, designers, marketers and commercial visionaries, to wrestle projects through to completion on-time and on-budget.
It’ll flex all of your project management muscles, from the Agile methodologies of our engineering and quality assurance teams to the more traditional systems practiced by an enviable roster of enterprise clients. Ultimately, you’ll oversee all individual team priorities and choreograph the whole show to ensure delivery on commercial imperatives.

Tracking, managing and reporting on several streams of work across multiple disciplines, including Product Development, Quality Assurance, Customer Success, Sales and Marketing

- Working closely with the Customer Success team to fully understand and document client requirements
Ensuring that all project work is on-track, on-time and on-budget
Ensuring that internal processes and protocols are being followed and adopted
Leading regular reviews of those processes/protocols with a focus on constant, iterative improvement
Ensuring Customer Service SLAs are being met
Keeping Senior Management up-to-date with progress and providing early warning of any potential issues
Reporting to the board on various initiatives

- A minimum of 5+ years experience in project management
Experience in an Agile/Scrum software development environment
Some experience with other project/process management methodologies (e.g. PRINCE2, CCPM, IPM, Sigma 6 etc)
The ability to speak several languages (e.g. tech/dev, creative, commercial, client)
The drive to take responsibility/accountability for delivery
Impeccable time-management and organisation skills
The ability to build relationships with both internal and external stakeholders, remove barriers and resolve problems
