Project Manager

About the company

We are a Polish software development agency specializing in the newest, cutting edge technologies, working mostly with startups from USA, Poland and other European countries. As the company is growing, we are looking to hire another Project Manager.

About the position

Project Manager in Software Mansion is responsible for maintaining the processes within the projects, but as we work with start-up clients at various stages of evolution, the exact set of responsibilities vary from project to project (and you should be handling from 3 to 8 projects with 10-15 engineers in total at the same time).

Most of our projects follow Agile development process and in the majority of them you will have the following set of responsibilities:

  • coordinating the communication between the team and the client, including management of daily or weekly standups,
  • supporting the team in solving problems,
  • proactively identifying and managing project risks and issues,
  • helping to improve teamwork by suggesting, creating, and implementing new tools and adjustments of processes,
  • managing the budget and controlling project costs (hours settling, preparing hourly reports for clients),
  • reporting to the company’s management and other project managers.
  • In some projects (up to 25%) the client manages the whole process and your role will be limited to monitoring the wellbeing of the project, including the wellbeing of engineers, updating the management and, from time to time, solving process issues.

    In a small number of cases we do end-to-end development and have complete control over the product. In that case, you might be also involved in some lightweight product management.
