JOB SUMMARY Parallon Business Performance Group is looking for an experienced and innovative project manager who can lead our business and technology project teams to deliver outstanding results on-time and on-budget. The ideal candidate has 10 years of IT experience, including 7 years managing large (8,000 hours), complex web development and/or implementation projects. Required expertise would include full project management lifecycle experience featuring business case development; cost/hours/budget tracking; coordination of interrelated projects across multiple lines of business; and oversight of both internal and vendor teams. Ideally, candidates would also have experience using both traditional and Lean/Agile/Scrum methods.
We value professionals with significant experience working directly with stakeholders/clients to produce business value. We prize leadership and business acumen in conjunction with a deep knowledge of PM best practices. We expect our project managers to have a strong understanding of the tools and technologies used within their projects. They are not developers or engineers, but they must be technically savvy enough to learn terminology quickly and work earnestly to earn the confidence and support of their teams. We need leaders who can drive the execution of the project; not simply monitor the WBS and report on progress. They must possess outstanding verbal and written communication skills. They should also be highly proficient at creating and managing business relationships.
