remote contract-based project manager (Long Beach)

compensation: $25-$35/hr
employment type: contract

Job Description: Wanted, project manager to oversee web and mobile app projects. Tasks include, ownership of project requirements, coordinating and stewarding teams through project processes including: Jira, Basecamp, Skype, Dropbox and Confluence. This will include ensuring all team members, from executives to QA, are maintaining best practices in those processes. Manage sprints, communicate with clients, verification of resolved tickets, and generally moving projects along to meet deadlines. Identify weak links in the teams and coordinate with technical leads and management to support that team member through communication, rehabilitation, and as a last resort, termination. Identify exceptional team members and coordinate with technical leads and management to support and encourage their advancement in the company.

Occasional team and client meetings and note taking/dissemination of those meetings. Onsite client meeting for a local LA candidate is also an occasional need. (Location in the Los Angeles area is a plus, but not a requirement)

This is a remote position, so a provable record of being able to self-motivate and meet requirements while under little direct daily oversight is a must. While hours are flexible, there is some requirements for daily late (or early) crossover with overseas teams and some hours that crossover with domestic teams and management.

While this is a full time entry level PM position, we are looking for someone who can grow into a senior position. The ideal candidate will have enough technical understanding of each project to be able to coordinate decision making around technical issues as well as being able to verify requirements as they are resolved. This candidate will also have exceptional skills in identifying visual deficiencies in UI/UX and CMS implementation of designs, and excellent communication skills.
