£60k - £80k DoE + options

Higher level planning role where Agile is used at the coal face

This start-up has grown now to the point where the project management activities need to be undertaken by their first dedicated Project Manager. Hence they seek a Project Manager who is used to light weight processes typically used by smaller companies. By all means bring your own approaches to this role, but they need to be appropriate for the team size increasing from 20 developers today.

This is a software only company so it is very likely your background at some point was hands-on software development. Ideally you will have a proven track record of a strong interest in audio technology. Although smart phone or similar consumer technology may be of interest to them.

You will be working alongside talented and bright software engineers who are developing in C++ using an Agile style approach and continuous integration. You will be expected to be able to stand your ground within the team, though you may not have programmed for some time.

A key aspect of the role is the client facing side, where you will be involved with the sales team covering the planning activities.

In summary you will have the following skills and attributes:

  • Good technical understanding of software development
  • Commercial exposure in the sales process
  • Degree in a STEM subject
  • Understanding of the Agile development process
  • Skilled with standard project management tools
  • Well organised and with a meticulous eye for detail

You will join a small company who work with trust and respect of each other in a welcoming environment just to the edge of Cambridge city. Home working is proving effective for this company hence long term they expect to retain a proportion of remote working within R&D. All the time you will have the backing of a friendly and very cooperative bunch of talented engineers happy to assist. Their product will be of major benefit to many people's lives.
