You should be familiar with agile and waterfall planning and comfortable with a combination approach. Overall, we are looking for someone with a methodical, analytical, and flexible approach to release and project management who will coordinate and collaborate within and without the Front End team to alleviate the non-technical burden of shipping well and often.

    What you'll do:

    • Own non-technical aspects of ongoing release process including coordination, documentation, and process improvement
    • Work with the Product Team to break up larger epics and stories into smaller consumable units of development
    • Work with the Product Team, Frontend team, other Engineering Teams, and major stakeholders to coordinate work and follow up on deliverables
    • Identify task blockers in advance
    • Manage project workflows, groom tickets and boards, and look for duplicates, invalid, or undefined tickets to help ensure everything in the queue is ready to be worked on
    • Develop road maps through accurate estimates based on Jira metrics you will collect and analyze
    • Maintain, coordinate, and communicate project timelines
    • Create executive dashboards and reports that would show the status of major projects, resource utilization, gaps and roadmap

    Who you are:

    • Minimum of 10+ years experience working as a project manager or similar role
    • Jira expert with two or more years experience with Kanban project management or light Scrum, and the openness to experiment with process
    • Spreadsheet expert (Google Sheets, Excel) comfortable with pivot tables and statistical analysis
    • Excellent communication skills and eagerness to ask questions and understand business and product objectives
    • The energy and patience to work in a rapidly growing industry, and the ability to recognize and pursue objectives independently
    • Superb organizational skills and an analytical view on maximizing productivity, with a focus on value and not getting caught up on process
    • Resilient determination to push projects through to completion, regardless of how often priorities and deadlines may shift with little notice


    Must haves:

    • Experience with Tableau, Looker, Metabase, or other BI tools
    • Experience managing projects in Jira, Trello, and Wrike
    • Must be comfortable working with simple command-line tools to export data from internal systems
    • Strong understanding of basic statistics
    • You have worked with software teams in the role of project manager – you know how to talk tech-lingo to engineers of various disciplines and understand what their jobs entail: the tasks, challenges, and costs of each position on a team are something you can appreciate


    Nice to haves:

    • Experience with scripting in Python, R, NodeJS or other statistical modeling languages
    • Understanding of advanced statistical hypothesis testing
