The Technical Project Manager helps Engineering team to deliver our most complex, cross-functional, critical software development projects to market.


The ideal candidate will be well organized, experienced in agile project management, technically skilled, and genuinely interested in understanding the business goals and technology aspects of their projects (i.e., not satisfied with simply tracking tasks on a checklist or project plan).


On the Job



  • Partner with multiple engineering teams and product management to provide agile project management support to key product development and core engineering projects on a day-to-day basis:



    • Help product owners form and socialize program requirements, and translate them into engineering-actionable work
    • Collaborate with product owners to clearly understand and document business needs, set priorities for sprint planning, and review deliverables at sprint completion
    • Collaborate with engineering leadership to secure engineering resources, manage priorities and dependencies across teams, and resolve issues in a timely manner
    • Build and maintain end-to-end project/program schedules
    • Establish committed deliverables and measure team's success against these commitments
    • Proactively identify, track, and communicate dependencies, risks, and issues affecting projects and collaborate on finding a resolution
    • Report to stakeholders on project status and estimated delivery schedule on a regular basis
    • Ensure that projects follow a lightweight methodology and meet quality standards before being released to end users
    • Serve as Agile Coach and act as an enabler of cross functional collaboration across Engineering and Product Management teams

  • Oversee, track, and report status of a broader product category program and help Product Category Lead drive product category to its business goals
  • Participate in and help to drive the quarterly and yearly roadmap planning processes
  • Collaborate on defining and growing the Project Management organization
  • Work to continuously improve planning and project execution processes across engineering and product groups


About You



  • Have a Bachelor's Degree in CS, Engineering or a related discipline and/or commensurate work experience
  • Have 5+ years of experience working on software projects, ideally in SaaS and/or ad tech solutions
  • Experienced in managing projects using Agile methodologies; Scrum master or Product owner experience a plus
  • Experienced with project management tools such as Jira, Microsoft Project, Smartsheet, or similar
  • Possess both business and technical acumen
  • Strong communicator and consensus builder
  • Able to influence process change without direct authority
  • Have an interest in understanding the "what" and "how" aspects of your projects and willingness to be a hands-on team member beyond tracking tasks and reporting status
  • Eager to understand both the business needs behind a project and the technical solutions developed to satisfy those needs
  • Willing to work in a fast-paced environment and handle multiple projects simultaneously
