KIXEYE is currently seeking a Project Manager to work with our shared infrastructure and engineering teams to manage the development of new services, cross-departmental projects, daily operations and external integrations. This is a highly collaborative role that requires multi-discipline communication, organization, and direction to achieve business objectives. You are responsible for coordinating schedules, prioritizing tasks, mitigating risks, communicating progress, and improving processes.

As the ideal candidate, you will have some technical comprehension so you do not get lost in the details. While this is not a technical role in terms of software engineering proficiency, you are not intimidated by acronyms or confused by jargon. In fact, you can take these details and translate for others around you. You can manage a vendor relationship, present to an executive, laugh with a developer, and play games with a designer, all while managing deadlines and deliverables.

  • Motivate, coordinate, and manage the activities of personnel to achieve project goals

  • Project planning and resource allocation weekly, monthly, and long-term

  • Communicate status of the project, risks, and opportunities to senior management

  • Provide input on continual improvement of our processes and project management office

  • Manage, coordinate and organize the daily tasks of the team utilizing tools like JIRA and Confluence, while communicating priorities and requirements with everyone involved.

Skills

  • Minimum 3 years of project management experience

  • Minimum 2-3 years of technology background necessary 

  • Minimum 2-3 years experience managing 3rd party developers and publishing partners

  • Experience working with Atlassian tools (Jira, Confluence, etc)
