About the Role

This role is fully remote.

In this role you will work primarily with the Front End developers and own, drive, and improve the non-technical aspects of the Front End release cycle. You will also work with the Engineering and Product teams to help build, maintain, and track timelines, and coordinate around objectives. 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
