Job Description

Senior Project Manager to oversee the conception, implementation, and analysis of product-related projects. The successful candidate will have a background in collaborating across multiple departments, meeting deadlines, driving projects and will have an extensive understanding of the software development lifecycle. The candidate will serve as liaison between business and technical aspects of projects. She or he will plan project stages and assess business implications for each stage and monitor progress to assure deadlines and standards are met. We’re looking for a responsible, articulate and motivated Senior Project Manager who can quickly identify vulnerabilities and obstacles and create innovative solutions to any problems. This role reports to the VP of Product, and is an essential part of our nimble and fierce Chute Product team.

Our product team uses software and tools including: Pivotal, Basecamp, Smartsheets, and random scraps of paper to organize our work. This Senior Project manager should be competent across a wide variety of organization tools not just limited to the ones we’re using now, but bringing new perspectives and organizational mastery to our team.
