Project Manager

Location: Bellevue, WA
Are you a mid/senior PM, looking for the next project to be excited about?  Good.

Honestly, we’re always hiring.  We’ve been growing since we started and that requires a constant stream of really talented people across the experience spectrum—and we’ve been fortunate to be able to retain that talent year over year.  This year we’re growing even faster and we need to bring in some experienced, talented project managers into a few of our established projects.  It’s a great team and one that you’ll want you to be a part of.

What we want are very smart, hungry project managers who are excited to expand their knowledge base.  People who are brazen enough to work with brand new technologies, shake off old ideas, and really contribute not just by making sure milestones are hit and communications pushed out, but also to participate in the vision—we’re a close team here and all the voices matter.
 

QUALIFICATIONS 

We're looking for the smartest, hardest working people we can possibly find rather than someone who only fits the static qualifications listed here.  But, with that said, here are some of the skills we are on the lookout for. Great documentation is key – especially of project requirements, commitments and timelines. Managing expectations with project stakeholders and tracking these closely while working with our dev and analyst teams is job #1. Complete, detailed and clear meeting notes, status reporting, project plans, and meeting management is the path to get you there. You’ll need to be able to understand the conversation, so here are the technologies our developers work with: JavaScript, C#, Azure Cloud, T-SQL and some HTML5.  If you’re familiar with those and think you can translate to folks who aren’t, you might be perfect.  We do have a strong preference for someone with previous Microsoft experience, but if you’ve worked at another large corporation, as either an FTE or consultant, or you have your MBA or PMI, don’t count yourself out. The important thing is that you are comfortable assuming top level accountability for a project with the client and driving the process to get us there.
 
PM’s generally like lists, so here’s a list of what we’re looking for:
 
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Highly organized with a great attention to detail
  • Experience with Agile methodology
  • Experience managing a technical project (SharePoint, SQL, etc.)
  • MBA preferred
  • MSFT experience preferred
  • Consulting experience preferred
