Project Manager at Piksel

We are looking for a Senior Technical Project Manager who is as deeply interested in the technology as they are in the art of delivering solutions to high quality on time and to budget.

We are looking for someone who will have had recent significant experience of project managing the software development of complex web based systems throughout the project.

  • Estimate costs, timescales and resource requirements for the successful delivery of the project(s) to agreed terms of reference.
  • Prepare and maintain realistic project schedules and quality plans. Track activities against them, providing regular and accurate reports to senior management, and client/user management as appropriate.
  • Identify, assess and manage risks to the success of the project.
  • Monitor costs, timescales and resources used, and take action where these deviate from agreed tolerances.
  • Manage the change control procedure, gaining authorisation for revisions to the project(s) from project sponsors.
  • Provide effective leadership to the project team ensuring that team members are motivated and developing their skills and experience.
  • Actively represent the project team, ensuring that effective relationships are built and maintained with the business.
