We need excellent Project Managers to give our customers great value.
For the GTeam FZ LLC Project Manager position, we pay $25/hour ($1000 fixed-price payment for a trial job if that trial leads us to hire you). We work with you through one of several approved staffing and payment platforms which will charge a percentage fee on your gross earnings, but you understand how those are. For United States citizens and permanent residents, we pay $20/hour because we have to cover W-2 processing.
As a Project Manager, you would plan, schedule, and track enterprise software customer deliverables, report status regularly, make risks less risky, keep the project recognizable, keep customers and vendors happy (reasonable expectations greatly promote happiness!), and manage your team.
You would need to be strong in both technical skills and customer skills. You would have an overall responsibility to make sure we deliver what we promised, when we promised it.
Your day-to-day job would be to:
Become an expert on your products
Schedule and communicate
Track the project, juggling multiple customers, schedules, issues, and risks, without dropping anything
Report how the juggling act is going
Watch for approaching problems, and tell management while we can still do something
Track team performance
Talk to customers, keep them from expecting too much (instant perfection, for example)
Guide the project to success
Resolve day-to-day issues as they come up
Keep teams communicating, nicely
Watch for approaching threats to the schedule. Figure out what to do about each threat and make it happen.
Prevent scope creep and other problems; keep the project from becoming a monstrosity by following the change control process
Work smoothly with people
Keep the customer and vendors happy
Work with others around the world (remembering before you call, who’s awake and who’s asleep)
Have a high-speed camera and Internet connection you can use for meetings
Keep regular work hours until 1PM CDT, but be prepared to meet with customers after that if necessary
Here are the skills you’ll need:
Able to see to see what’s traded off with each design option
Understand different ways to reach the goal.
Project management experience
6-8 years overall experience, including 1-2 years of project management
Background in enterprise product consulting, development, or support
Experience with Software Development Life Cycle
Know how to plan, schedule, and track customer deliverables
Have developed and executed project plans, without having had to execute any people
Know how to prioritize and solve problems
Know how to talk to customers, and everybody else too
Over 6 months of experience directly communicating with customers
Good presenter and facilitator
Care about quality and results
Adapt to change without kicking and screaming
Take criticism well, but dish it out only constructively
Good team player
