Project Manager
Cape Town

We are lucky enough to be home to some of the smartest, most gracious people building a unique, best-in-class, not-super-huge technology firm consisting of senior people working closely with our founders to invent radically capable things for global clients.

We are looking for an experienced Project Manager to join us and help to drive the successful execution of SPAN custom software development initiatives. You will work collaboratively with software engineers, product managers, and client stakeholders to coordinate the successful delivery of goal-oriented software projects.

Seems pretty great–right!? You’ll want to be sure that the stuff below sounds good too.

You are excited by, and excel at:

Leading distributed teams and inspiring your teammates to do their best work

Agile development processes AND estimation, planning, and risk management

Making tough business calls necessary to achieve our objectives

Facilitating and guiding collaboration to create the best solutions

Delivering projects on time and budget, with the required scope and quality

Reasoning with limited information and assumptions to solve problems

Adapting best practices and procedures to meet the needs of the current project.

You’ll love it here if:

You are allergic to hierarchical, bureaucratic, business-card cultures

You believe project delivery is a team sport more like rugby than archery

You want to work with very smart people from radically different backgrounds

You are a voracious learner & an eager teacher of others

You want to be led from the front, not commanded from the rear

You don’t tolerate intra-office posturing or other douchebaggery

You’re excited to work on a broader array of interesting, challenging projects than you can anywhere else.

What we offer:

Flexible & generous work & leave schedule

Learning organization based on a reverence for expertise & excellence (Meetups, mentorship & coaching, Lunch & Learning Fridays, conferences, e-learning platform access, tertiary education)

An exceptional hybrid-remote working culture

Pet-friendly office, onsite haircuts, industrial office space…home away from home

Macbook Pro Retina’s, noise-canceling headphones, dual monitors, ergonomic chairs, the usual startup perks.
