We are looking for experienced Software Development Project Managers

We are looking for an experienced Software Development Project Manager to manage mid-sized to large projects in a self-reliant way. We are looking for someone with a proven track record of leading digital products and services liaising directly with clients to turn their requirements into a reality.

We are not just looking for a project manager. We need someone who knows the difference between a back-end, full-stack, and front-end development; someone who isn't shy to put pen to paper to visualize systems or a wire-frame when needed and is confident in advising clients of alternate directions for their product. We need an individual that excels at delivering projects on time within budget and scope. Furthermore, the candidate should provide professional experience of managing a team to achieve project objectives.

This role is central to the success of a project, so high emotional intelligence, communication, and organizational skills are an absolute must.
