Description

Does watching slow moving construction projects drive you nuts? Does the premise of waterfall software development give you a nails on the chalkboard sensation? Do you often think about faster / iterative ways to deliver client satisfaction? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we want to talk to YOU!

Big Astronaut is looking for a full-time Agile Project Manager / Scrum Master / XP Coach with great organizational and interpersonal skills that is an experienced multi-tasker. Project Managers are responsible for the overall direction, implementation, execution, and completion of Client deliverables.

  • Lead the planning and implementation of projects; define project tasks and resource requirements.

  • Holds daily and weekly scrum meetings/IPMs, stand ups, sprint planning, demo, and retrospective meetings.
  • Facilitates scope definition process, and ensures requirements are specified.
  • Communicates daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly project plans and requirements clearly to entire team.
  • Measure and monitor project progress to ensure releases are delivered on time, within budget, and that they consistently exceed Client expectations.

To qualify for consideration you have:

  • 2+ years of previous release and/or project management experience with a solid understanding of project management principles.

  • Demonstrated ability to coordinate and lead cross-functional work teams.
