Job Description

We're looking for a Technical Project Manager with a proven background delivering software development projects to join a London based company that are creating a groundbreaking SaaS product.

Joining at a time of sustained growth, in a brand new position within the business, you will be integral to the success of the company as you will ensure the delivery of a diverse portfolio of complex technical projects. This is a great opportunity for an ambitious and influential project manager to play a key role within a company that is going from strength to strength.

The core focus of this role will be to manage the delivery of multiple projects simultaneously. The projects, and the technology involved, is complex and business critical. The projects themselves will be heavily software development focused, including product and feature releases, upgrades, and client implementations. You will be working closely with multiple teams including development, infrastructure engineering, product, QA and customer services, and you will be the glue that holds everything together. You will be heavily involved in the planning stage, and will then ensure that deadlines are hit, and stakeholder expectations are managed at all times.

Critical to the success of this role will be the ability to understand the complexity of the product and the infrastructure, and then to use your project management experience to influence how projects are delivered. This will mean establishing processes, assessing risks, planning releases and building effective working relationships with your colleagues. This is a fast-paced, innovative environment which will be challenging but rewarding in equal measure, and you will become a key part of a team with a real passion for building the best products they possibly can.

To be considered for this role you must have a proven track record working as a Technical Project Manager. In addition, we are looking for evidence of the following;

  • A strong technical background with a track record in delivering complex software development projects, preferably of large scale SaaS systems.
  • A solid understanding of the software development lifecycle, including technology and methodologies, preferably Agile and Continuous Delivery.
  • The ability to manage the output from development teams, including challenging estimations, and supporting them through technical problems.
  • Excellent communication skills, including stakeholder and relationship management, leadership and influencing.
  • Strong organisational skills, including tracking progress, managing risks and issues, and the ability to prioritise effectively.

In addition, a background working in software development (or a technical degree) would be highly beneficial, as would an interest in the arts and entertainment sector, and a formal project management qualification. We are looking for someone who is passionate about what they do, enthusiastic in their approach, and able to lead and inspire those around them. If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you. Please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
