  • Use appropriate processes and tools to generate project plans, track project performance, manage changes in scope or schedule, oversee risk management, and execute postmortem analyses

  • Identify potential problems, road blocks, and scope creep; escalate issues to management as required

  • Lead project status meetings

Skills and competencies (the ideal candidate will have):

  • 2+ years of professional experience working on small- to large-scale technical projects with inter-group dependencies and intermediate deliverables

  • Rigorous insistence on detail, analytical thinking, and problem-solving

  • Knowledge of all phases of the SDLC and a familiarity with common methodologies, as well as a flexibility to adapt to what works best for the current project

  • Experience defining technical and functional requirements

  • Ability to work independently in a fast-paced environment, managing several projects concurrently

  • Desire to learn new technologies, tackle new challenges, and grow professionally
