Project Manager

Tuesday January 29, 2013

308 Congress Street
Boston, MA 02210


Are you a Project Manager well-versed in the ancient art of “greasing the wheels”? Do you spot potential roadblocks from a mile away and then blast them with your Project Management Rocket LauncherTM? Can you facilitate a software development cycle like no other? Are the Agile Manifesto Principles tattooed somewhere on your body? Then we want you on our team.

Our future Project Manager will be the shining beacon of calm under pressure; efficiency incarnate; a go-to person; chief facilitator/influencer on premises; and the knower of all things. You will shield our dispersed team from the minutiae of the project and allow them to focus on doing a great job on their specific responsibilities. With team members members in India and Europe, and on both coasts of the U.S., this won’t be a 9-to-5 kind of gig. We need someone with a little flexibility to check in briefly with all teams to keep things moving.

We’ve got a lot to offer. Smart, awesome people in a highly collaborative environment. Cutting-edge technologies. Great downtown location. It doesn’t hurt that we’re a BBJ Best Place to Work, or that we’re on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies. We’re getting bigger and we need the right people for the job.
