Project/Programme Manager

When you join ThoughtWorks you join a wonderful community of people who are passionate about learning, and about sharing what they learn. A community that includes the people who write the books on software excellence and innovation, who write the tools that we all use. A community that is passionate about doing great work for interesting clients, and bringing those clients on a journey of change. A community that is determined to use software to improve lives.

Do you bring out the best in the teams you lead? Do you innovate on the best way to deliver business value through software? Are you frustrated with the old ways of building software? Do you get what it takes to delivery truly exceptional software? Are you willing to go where the action is to manage high value projects? 

We are looking for someone who not only knows how to bring together a team to deliver great software to our clients, but can help us build our footprint in a growing location. We need someone who sees technology, process and organizational problems, and is driven to fix them, and along the way influence the industry to move in a better direction.

When some people think of leaders they see them working in corner offices at the top of the building. That’s not how it works here. Yes, you’ll be one of our experienced people and with that will come significant responsibility for how we manage and deliver business-critical software solutions. But we don’t do heavy management or big company politics.
We are collaborators, which mean you’ll sit around the same table as developers, architects, testers and analysts, coming up with creative ways to translate concepts and ideas into practical and tactical solutions, foster innovation and maximize customer ROI.

You won’t be handed a one size fits all, traditional big consultancy methodology and be asked to enforce it. You will be asked to leverage cutting edge Agile and Lean practices to lead self-organizing teams to deliver software that does exactly what is needed.

You’ll also need to be an experienced consultant, someone who has worked for a technology consultancy before and understands that while we’re growing in Barcelona, you might not be based there all the time.

Here's what you can do as a Project/Programme Manager at ThoughtWorks:

  • Manage and guide delivery of multiple projects in an account through all phases of project delivery to ensure successful delivery of exceptional technical solutions.
  • Ensure the experience of engaging ThoughtWorks for delivery exceeds client expectations.
  • Delivering high value consulting and other related service offerings to clients as needed.
  • Maintain and guide ThoughtWorkers and clients on delivery practices that ensure success.
  • Take the needs and challenges of a client and partner with them to formulate the delivery road map and project plans to support business strategies and goals.
  • Partner with a client in product visioning and development through the lifecycle of the programme
  • Work with our clients to manage and/or participate in the implementation of organizational change
  • Execute TW account strategy and orchestrate the creation and sale of successful value propositions at the company and individual level.
  • Be an inspiration for innovation to the client.
  • Become a trusted and valued partner of the client executives: CIO, CTO, PMO and gain the confidence of the client's business stakeholders.
  • Maintain, and deepen where possible, existing client relationships that yield continuing opportunities for ThoughtWorks.
  • Capture innovations, lessons learned and successes on projects and share them with the wider organization.
  • Build positive team dynamics and relationships with client staff; remedying dysfunction to maintain healthy and productive ThoughtWorks communities at the Client
  • Maintaining strong expertise and knowledge of current and emerging technologies and products


As a Project/Programme Manager at ThoughtWorks, here is what you'll bring: 

 

  • Experienced project and/or programme management experience
  • Experience running multiple IT delivery and consulting projects with multiple stakeholder involvement
  • Solid experience of leading software development teams in an agile environment.
  • Experience working directly with business executives: CIO, CTO, PMO in an advisory role
  • Experience planning and managing human, financial, material, and information resources
  • Account development experience; creating, maintaining and/or enhancing customer relationships that have yielded business opportunity.
  • Fluent in Spanish and English

Ready? Then reach out to Harry - he is looking forward to getting to know you!
