This is an exciting opportunity for someone with 1-3 years of experience coordinating projects. Someone who is interested in jump-starting their career at a rapidly scaling analytics consulting company.</p> <p><strong>What&rsquo;s in it for you:</strong></p> <ul> <li><em>Career growth.</em> You will start off supporting Senior Project Managers on the end-to-end project management cycle. You will rapidly gain hands-on enterprise project experience - without being part of an enterprise company. You will quickly move on to managing 1-2 internal projects and continue to develop your skills and gain knowledge about our business, our clients and the solutions we implement.</li> <li><em>Mentorship.</em> You will work side-by-side with senior project team members who will guide your work and coach you. We foster a positive culture that encourages professional growth and development as-you-work. You will be given every opportunity to move up to a client-facing Project Manager and then Senior Project Manager.</li> <li><em>Challenges and exposure.</em> As you move from project to project and gain additional responsibilities, you will be learning continuously. You will gain exposure to various technologies and a range of complex problems that need your insights for solving. Every day at Project X is different. Every problem you solve with us has a different approach.</li> </ul>
Responsibilities: <p><strong>As a Project X Project Coordinator you will be responsible for:</strong></p> <ul> <li>End-to-end ownership and accountability of internal projects.</li> <li>Coordination of key resources and contributors ensuring everyone is aligned. You will be involved in the full SDLC and work across all teams to ensure we add value to the customer.</li> <li>Supporting the Senior Project Manager on all the key project management deliverables and processes. This includes: <ul> <li>Gant charts.</li> <li>Detailed project plans.</li> <li>Documentation and reporting.</li> <li>Communication and meeting coordination.</li> <li>Budgets, forecasts and costs.</li> <li>Relationship management with third-party vendors, clients and internal teams.</li> <li>Scheduling Sprint activities. Many of our clients run Waterfall with Agile influences. Project deliverables need to be broken down, assigned and deployed by the Project Manager.</li> </ul> </li> </ul>
Requirements: <p><strong>And how do we know that&rsquo;s you? You have:</strong></p> <ul> <li>The right combination of experience and education. At least 1+year of full SDLC project experience including time as a Project Coordinator or Junior Project Manager. A university degree in Business Administration or Computer Science/Engineering is an asset.</li> <li>A sense of ownership. You understand that project coordination and management is a rewarding but challenging field. You are level-headed and detail oriented, striving to solve issues before they arise, to avoid problems before they occur.</li> <li>The technical skills. You have hands-on expertise with MS Project and Agile Project Management tools such as Jira and Slack. You have an understanding of databases, data warehouses, analytics and reporting as well as experience using visualization tools such as Tableau and Click. Exposure to SAP is beneficial.</li> <li>Outstanding communication skills. You know how to speak to stakeholders and team members of all levels. You excel at making presentations, negotiating timelines and providing updates. The written materials you produce are equally impressive and effective.</li> <li>Impressive leadership skills. You understand how to deal with people and political sensitivities. You can: <ul> <li>Effectively motivate people who report to you - and those that don&rsquo;t.</li> <li>Facilitate coordination and cooperation across multiple functional teams both onsite and virtually.</li> <li>Influence customers, clarify ambiguities and present information in a way that is structured and makes sense.</li> </ul> </li> <li>A consulting state-of-mind. It&rsquo;s a thing. You&rsquo;ll know if you have it. So will we. You have the ability to work autonomously and away from headquarters for long periods of time. And still find your way back &ldquo;home&rdquo; and into the comfortable, open and sharing mental and physical space of our office on a regular basis.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Why join Project X</strong></p> <p>At Project X, we reward hard work with recognition, opportunity to advance your career and a competitive salary. We offer a comprehensive Health and Dental Benefits Package, gym membership discount, casual dress code, fun working environment and more.
