SUMMARY OF PURPOSE
The Sr. Project Manager will have responsibility for delivering results on the projects assigned within schedule and budget. These projects are highly strategic and cross-functional, requiring collaboration with Product, IT, Development, Data, Operations, and Support teams.
 
As projects are assigned, it will be the Project Manager’s responsibility to scope out the project, meet with stakeholders, develop the charter and schedule, report regularly on budget, resources, and timeline, and hold everyone accountable to delivering on the desired results of the project.
 
The Project Manager will receive day-to-day direction, oversight, and feedback from the Program Manager for enterprise projects, and will sit with the team members that act as resources on his or her projects.
 
These teams often tackle multiple projects simultaneously, utilizing the same resources. The Project Manager must be able to present resourcing needs, alternatives, and trade-offs clearly to leadership, to facilitate timely prioritization and decision-making.
 
As an experienced Project Manager, this person will be expected to constantly seek areas for improvement – within the overall processes followed and/or the tools used – and should work with other stakeholders to implement those improvements in a timely manner.
