Our client is an early stage startup with frank and honest people running the show. They are looking for new team members who are flexible, comfortable wearing multiple hats, and have the ability to be trusted when in a room with clients. Everyone on the team is big on new ideas and ways to improve the process or the code. Despite being an early stage startup, the manager understands that 70+ hours every week is not a sustainable model. Yes, you’ll have deadlines that you’ll have to meet, but this strict agile environment is based in realistic deliverables and timelines. Equity will likely be a part of the offer.
You will be asked to actively manage the expectations and timelines given to clients, based on their requests. This person should be calm in the face of deadlines, adversity, and stress. All client requests and changes will go through you and you will communicate with the dev team as you negotiate the fixes into the schedule. A firm grasp on project management, Gantt style planning, and deliverables in a consulting company are all very important.
- Ability to communicate clearly with clients as well as developers
- Experience scheduling a complex project using Gantt
- Experience with Pivotal Tracker
- Grasp of scheduling 1 week sprints with a dev team and communicating this to clients
