What the role is:
This is a pretty unique job. We're looking for a Swiss army knife / person who wears many hats. Cliche for a startup? Yep. But, we're a small team and scrappy, so we need someone with that mindset - someone who learns quickly, is detail-oriented, organized, and most importantly, gets things done. We don't expect you to be an expert in software project management but we are looking for smart, driven candidates ready to have responsibilities on day 1. This is an excellent entry-level opportunity for someone who has an interest in growing in a role that will have tremendous growth potential focused within the software development and project management field.
Here are examples of things you'll be doing:
- Acting as the primary or secondary point of contact for clients, from on-boarding to launch and beyond;
- Communicating and coordinating with our clients and internal teams to make sure projects are moving forward and are on schedule;
- Assisting Senior Project Managers in release planning;
- Making sure product requirements are met and helping implement project tasks;
- And a bunch of other things we haven't even thought of!
