We are looking for a Project Manager to join an amazing group of technologists, industry experts and thought leaders who will bring high quality project delivery expertise and discipline to R3. As part of the Project Management Office reporting into the Head of PMO you will apply best practices, continuously think about how we can improve our technical and engineering project delivery and work closely with our internal technical teams to ensure that we are delivering software to the expected time, quality and budget. You are knowledgeable in mainstream project management approaches with a particularly specialisation in Agile delivery. You are comfortable working autonomously within these approaches.

You will have extensive software development project management experience and exhibit a natural passion for getting the most out of the teams you work with. This will complement your strong organisational skills and attention to detail. You will have a strong sense of foresight for potential challenges and risks and devise plans to address and mitigate these, both around the implemented engineering processes and the delivery ‘machinery’. You will contribute to the success of our software products by choreographing scheduled and adhoc meetings and retrospectives, maintaining documentation relating to project delivery processes and contributing to the day-to-day positivity within R3. You will have a methodical and fastidious attitude to software delivery by capturing, tracking and driving actions across the delivery teams to a successful conclusion, keeping fast-moving situations under control and using the right combination of project delivery techniques to suit.

You will have experience working in firms where releases, software development lifecycles and speed-to-market are the back-bone of your work. You will want to delight your colleagues by helping provide them with a high quality project delivery experience. The majority of your project delivery experience will be from working in Agile environments where project managers, product managers and engineers work closely together

Responsibilities:

  • Take ownership of local, regional and global project deliveries applying appropriate project control techniques.
  • Apply robust and appropriate project planning to capture and track activities so technical project teams can work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
  • Contribute to improving the maturity of R3’s project delivery.
  • Communicate to internal and external stakeholders using a variety of techniques appropriately tailored to the audience.
  • Produce, validate and publish accurate project reports on a regular and timely basis.
  • Display flexibility under changing priorities and actively collaborate with R3 teams to achieve common objectives.
  • Identify opportunities for efficiency and development process improvements including but not limited to the use of off-the-shelf tooling and the adoption of best practices.

Competencies:

  • A deep understanding of project management principles, particularly Agile methodologies, most likely obtained through a combination of academic study and professional experience.
  • 5+ years experience delivering enterprise software to external clients.
  • Jira experience is an advantage.
  • Comfortable and able to work under pressure.

 

How We’re Handling Covid-19

We are extremely grateful to continue to grow as a company during these unprecedented times. Our #1 priority is the health, safety, and wellbeing of our current and future R3’ers. We want to share with you what we’re doing and what you can expect throughout our interview and on-boarding processes.

Since March, most R3’ers have been working remotely, although we have opened some key office locations global, with limited capacity for those that cannot work from home or need to come into the office.

As you go through the virtual interview process with us, please don’t worry if children or pets make a guest appearance. We understand these things happen- it’s real life after all! If we are fortunate enough to welcome you to the team, we’ll get a laptop couriered to you and get you set up virtually on your first day.  We also provide you with a “Work From Home” allowance to enable you to purchase some equipment to be more comfortable and productive.

We Have And Will Continue To Take Steps To Ease Some Of The Burden For Our R3’ers

We understand that Work From Home (WFH) life can be challenging in many ways, so some of the additional support measures we have in place include;

  • New Starter WFH allowance (as mentioned above) to get you setup to work productively at home
  • Additional access to wellbeing resources (as well as the support provided as part of your Vitality Private Medical) including a year’s free subscription to the Headspace app and modules on our Lessonly training platform from MindGym (including Goal getting, Stress Busters and Virtual Work)
  • We also have additional health and wellbeing resources available on our wiki pages when you join.

In particular, R3 will use the personal data provided for the purposes of processing your application for the role you have applied for, to assess your suitability for the role as well as to enter into a contract with you if you are successfully brought onto the R3 team.
