Software Project Manager (Agile/scrum experience preferred)
You just might be a Bluebeam Software Project Manager if…
- You sat with the smart kids at lunch in high school.
- You translate "Tres Amigos" as a product owner, a developer, and a QA tester.
- You've used some sort of scrum board in your personal life.
- You've had serious discussions on the merits of Kirk vs. Picard or Star Wars vs. Star Trek.
- You have a scheme for organizing your inbox, and have convinced someone else to try it.
- You've gotten in trouble for being too honest.
- You can slice up a user story six ways from Sunday.
- You've ever been at work at 2am cheering on a team. (This doesn't happen often at Bluebeam, but you'd be there to wave the flag and help if it did.)
- Your phone is filled with pictures of whiteboards.
- You catch a buzz from building great software.
Bluebeam is growing like crazy and needs a talented cat-herder to help build our software experience on the desktop platform. As a software project manager, you'll be an integral part of the development team, where you will provide a key leadership role in helping the team deliver the best possible product to our customers.
The position requires a mix of hard and soft skills: an instinct for recognizing and resolving technical issues, but also an innate desire to bring order to chaos, and a knack for working with people across all parts of the software delivery pipeline.
About the job:
- Serve as a scrum master for one or more development teams.
- Coordinate major feature development between multiple teams.
- Champion the development process, the quality of our software, and the delivery of the product.
- Develop roadmaps for your teams in cooperation with product, development, and QA teams.
- Track, monitor, and report on product and development team deliverables.
- Proactively manage changes in your software releases, identify potential hurdles, and devise contingency plans.
- 3+ years as a software project manager or scrum master in an Agile environment.
- You won't write code in this role, but a technical background helps. A degree in Software Engineering or a related field is great. Or experience with programming languages (especially C# or C++) works too.
- CSM, CSPO, PMP or similar certifications – or education in these areas. We aren't big on certifications, but you should know this terrain.
- We're especially interested if you have thick-client experience; building and shipping huge, feature-rich products with lots of deliverables. It would give you an advantage if you had previously managed projects on an application that has a main yearly release coupled with some minor ones across multiple platforms. Heavy stuff.
- It would also be helpful if you had some experience managing web projects. Shorter, faster sprints with more incremental releases.
