As Agile Project Manager at ORTEC you build on unexplored grounds. Sounds exciting? Keep reading and apply today!
Within ORTEC Optimization Technology, our software development department, we are looking for an Agile Project Manager who is committed to deliver software solutions of high quality to our wide range of international customers.
As Agile Project Manager you will be assigned to 2 – 5 projects at any given time, with timelines ranging from 3 to 12 months per project. You will be delivering software solutions together with your project team, consisting of a lead developer, an analytics consultant, front-end and back-end developers and if need be, a UX/UI designer. Of course, the scale and skills of the team depend on the project needs.
You will make a project plan, including timeline, scope, resources and financials based on the wishes of the internal stakeholder (often a product owner), or, if you like, also with the external customer. When your project plan is final, you go into “Agile mode”, working in sprints and making sure that the team meets the agreed deadlines.
You will often be in the central position for key decision making. Your biggest challenge is to keep both your stakeholders and the team happy at the same time. To achieve that, excellent communication skills are key, as well as having a pro-active mindset. The most satisfying aspects of your job are to create something outstanding, to optimize the product in a joint team effort and to make your stakeholder a happy customer.
Your role will not be restricted to one individual team, since you will be part of several project teams: some larger than others, some international, some national. In any case, you will also be part of a team of project managers, who you can connect with. If it meets your personal ambitions, your role could be extended towards people management. In such a role, you will act as a coach, guide and evaluator of employees regarding their personal career plan.
We help you to thrive in your field of expertise. We offer development programs, tailored to your individual needs and function requirements, including opportunities to attend courses and seminars. We offer challenging practical hands-on experience, with opportunities to work abroad. We operate a flat organizational structure that keeps communication lines short. The atmosphere is open, informal, cooperative and positive. We employ over 800 people in the Netherlands (headquarters, 450 empl), Belgium, Germany, France, the U.K., Romania, Poland, Italy, the U.S., Australia, and Brazil.
