Job description

We are seeking an ambitious Technical Project Manager / Software Project Manager to join a growing software company.

You will show a passion for agile software development and experience using Jira, Excel and other project management tools. Previous experience within a fast-growing scale-up is highly desirable.

The role offers the opportunity to grow and develop your skills into new areas while working in an open, creative and collaborative environment — interacting with various talented teams of people who love what they do.

Key responsibilities:

  • Managing resources across cross-functional teams, understanding requests and issues, and communicating these effectively across relevant stakeholders to ensure each team is able to achieve its goals.
  • Working through difficult scenarios; mediating between competing interests and personalities to gain alignment and achieve an accurate prioritisation of projects.
  • Working in close collaboration with developers, compliance officers, and product-owners to distil technical requirements into easily actionable specifications and user stories.
  • Thinking critically to properly assess risk and scope, eliminate blockers and achieve on-time deliveries.
  • Introducing new processes and enhancing existing ones to maximise efficiency and collaboration across our teams and help cultivate an innovative and supporting working environment.
  • Working with the senior leadership team to ensure the delivery of the product roadmap and establish a culture of quality.

About you

  • You will ideally have 3-5 years’ experience as a technical project manager or program manager in a highly technical environment.
  • You are passionate about agile software development and have a good understanding of lean product development.
  • You have a methodical, thorough and detail-oriented approach to your work.
  • You are a self-starter and know how to get things done.
  • You have solid technical acumen and the ability to learn technical concepts quickly.
  • You demonstrate very strong organisational skills and have the ability to multitask and prioritise effectively under pressure.
  • You are an analytical thinker, using data and metrics when approaching and resolving issues.
  • You are able to collaborate with different stakeholders and develop productive working relationships with a wide variety of teams and at all levels.
  • You are assertive and strong-willed, but diplomatic; you have good negotiation skills.
  • You have experience using Jira, Excel and other project management tools.

Benefits

  • £50,000 - £60,000 + Benefits
  • Working in a multicultural environment
  • A positive and collaborative working culture
  • 30 days of holidays including UK Bank Holidays
