Careers: Project Manager

Summary

We're looking for a project manager with experience owning small to mid-size projects, and guiding them to completion, from handling client meetings, organizing issues, milestones, and working with the engineering team on implementation.

This is our first position for this kind of role, so it helps being a bit of a generalist, or having had experience in different environments and companies. We'd like someone who has experience with different processes, what works and what doesn't, and can help us refine our project development workflows.
