About the Role

This role is fully remote.

This individual will work with the engineering and product team to help coordinate around objectives, follow up on tasks and timelines, and organize information within Jira and confluence.  Projects to manage could require an agile or waterfall or combination approach depending upon their nature. With many moving objectives it’s easy to lose track of small, but important, tasks. A project manager working with the engineering team will have a narrow focus, managing the timeline and requirements of projects, especially across functional areas.

What you'll do:

    • Work with the Product Team to break up larger epics and stories into smaller consumable units of development

    • Work with the Product Team, Engineering Team and major stakeholders to coordinate work and follow up on deliverables

    • Identify task blockers in advance

    • Groom tickets and boards, looking for duplicates, invalid, or undefined tickets to help ensure everything in the queue is ready to be worked on

    • Developing road maps through accurate estimates based on the momentum of the Engineering Team

    • 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

    • Two or more years experience with Kanban project management or light Scrum, and the openness to experiment with process

    • Excellent communications 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

    • A resilient determination to push projects through to completion, regardless of how often priorities and deadlines may shift with little notice

We’re powered by people from around the world with their own unique backgrounds and experiences. We value all Krakenites and their talents, contributions, and perspectives.
