Support Project Manager

We're seeking a full-time Support Project Manager who will thrive as part of the innovative and supportive Support & Maintenance team. We're looking for someone with a combination of technical acumen and the ability to lead multiple teams, make decisions, and get things done. To be successful, you need an understanding of the technical intricacies of large-scale Drupal web projects and the ability to see the big picture, translate business goals into requirements, specs into estimates, and manage tickets for multiple projects. You should have experience managing enterprise web projects, be highly organized, excel at context switching, and be able to have frank yet friendly conversations about scope, deadlines, and deliverables.

To work well in our 100% remote environment, you'll need strong self-management skills and possess excellent communication habits. Equally important is that you will aspire to embody our Core Values and are aligned with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We not only believe this is an essential part of our Be Human core value; it’s crucial to our Engineering Values as well.

Bonus Points

We've found that some of the most successful PMs are those people who thoroughly understand and have done the work involved.
