Technical Project Manager – Everyday Health

  • Remote – United States

Overview:

MedPage Today is hiring! We are looking for a Mid-level Agile/Scrum Project Manager who is passionate about leading a cross-functional team of technology professionals to get things done. This position is working with our primarily New York-based tech/product team. However, we seamlessly made the transition to a fully remote workforce due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so remote applicants will be seriously considered.

Qualifications:

  • Experience leading an Agile/Scrum team of developers and QA engineers, building web applications in any technology stack (3-5 years)
  • Experience working with Jira or equivalent SDLC management suite (2-3 years)
  • Strong analytical skills, proficient in deriving metrics and creating helpful reports to manage scope and projects
  • Ability to manage multiple product initiatives, address impediments as they arise, and push to get things done
  • Experience with both employee-facing web applications (internal tools) and public-facing web platforms is a plus
  • Effective as a conduit or concept-translator between technical groups and non-technical stakeholders
  • Experience leading projects with a distributed team is a plus
  • SAFe Agilist, PMP, CSM, or equivalent certifications desired

Responsibilities:

  • Help Product Team to prioritize stories in backlog and coordinate commitment in the upcoming sprints.
  • Analyze backlog to project delivery dates based on engineering team capacity, sprint schedule and dependencies on other work and teams.
  • Coordinate with others on the Project Management team to ensure that projects and individual tasks are assigned according to their priority or deadline
  • Identify external dependencies on work owned by other teams (data, reporting, marketing) and third-party systems (e.g. CRM system such as SalesForce, communications platforms like SailThru)
  • Facilitate stand ups, sprint planning, bug scrubbing, retrospectives, and other Scrum/Agile ceremonies
  • Mitigate risks to an active Sprint or feature-set by maintaining a reasonable scope and addressing any process bottlenecks that may arise
  • Ensure that communication and collaboration between all groups and individuals is productive and timely, regardless of geographic location

Opportunities:

  • Join a mature, established team that understands the value of process and those that uphold it
  • Work in an organization that has the stability and support of a large conglomerate, but the agility, freedom, and pragmatism of a smaller company
  • Brainstorm and innovate new process improvements with the Project Management team and the cross-functional tech team
  • Use dynamic plugins, the Atlassian suite, and cloud-based software to construct useful automated reports
  • Collaborate with management to establish a plan for your long-term professional growth
