Project Manager

Fortitude Valley
Max Kelsen

Apply for this job

What does our team need you to do?

We need a Project Manager to lead multiple project teams in the successful delivery of machine learning and software development solutions, that once delivered will have a significant positive impact for our customers and provide them with a competitive advantage.

Made up of between 2 to 8 of our machine learning and software engineers, a typical project adopts more of a Prince 2 style project management approach, combined with an agile development and delivery methodology. It will be up to you to ensure that our customers provide glowing feedback on our communication and project delivery; coordinating and managing your project team to bring the project in on schedule and on budget.

Who do we feel this role will suit?

We are looking for a Project Manager that has at least 2 years experience successfully delivering multi-discipline IT projects, or a Senior Project Coordinator with at least 5 years experience working on IT projects with a software development component. As we are a rapidly growing team, we find there are times that we all need to pitch in and fill other roles, so it is important that on occasion you will still enjoy engaging in some business analyst activities.

We do not feel this role is suited to a Senior Project Manager or Project Director, but rather a project manager that is kicking goals and wants to work with an organisation that is going places and will enable them to develop into a Senior Project Manager.

What experience, education and skills should this person have?

A strong candidate will have experience in both project management and business analyst roles within organisations that move quickly. Below are some other criteria we will be looking for:

  • Agile Certification - at least Agile Scrum Master OR Tertiary Project Management (IT) degree
  • Prince 2 experience, or better still a certification or qualification
  • Experience using MoSCoW framework for prioritisation
  • Excellent verbal and written communication, problem-solving ability and interpersonal skills
  • A track record of delivering impactful projects on time and on budget
  • Experience in organising and facilitating requirement gathering workshops with clients
  • Strong understanding of a BA’s responsibilities to a development team
  • Previous experience working with Jira and flow chart software such as LucidChart
  • Previous experience documenting both ‘As-Is’ and ‘To-Be’ processes and user flows
  • Previous experience working on web/mobile applications (Machine Learning is a plus, not essential)
  • Ability to analyse complex information and document it in a way that is easily understandable and digestible
  • Minimum of 2 years experience as a Project Manager or 5 years as a Senior Project Coordinator within the IT sector
  • A propensity to move quick and make it happen
  • Constantly curious and looking to learn or explore the possibilities

Any applicant wishing to apply for this role needs to write a one page briefing explaining how their skills, experience and future aspirations align with this opportunity with Max Kelsen. In addition please provide a copy of your resume.
