Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
We are a new media company in North London providing industry-leading solutions in mobile communications and billing. We work with some of the biggest brands in the world to deliver exciting interactive services and marketing across the mobile phone channel. We have an ethos based on innovation, reliable technology engineering and excellent customer service. The scope of our activities is global. Although we are a small company, we work with large partners. As a result, the expectations for delivery are correspondingly high. We seek qualified individuals to assist us in contributing to continued growth of the company.

At the moment, we seek a Technical Project Manager for a contract role.

Key skills:
* Technical project management skills.

* Very good record keeping and communication skills including excellent writing skills.

Many of our project have a connectivity element that requires a good understanding of TCP/IP networks. The projects are often across national boundaries and technical teams have vastly different time zones and technical cultures. Therefore understanding how to work with diverse technical teams, tact and sensitivity are extremely important. Certification and training in one of the recognised project management methodologies or standards (PRINCE, etc.) is potentially helpful but is not a requirement.

Responsibilities:
* Attending technical planning meetings, possibly internationally
* Identifying, tracking and managing project goals and deliverables
* Disseminating project information to project stakeholders
* Identifying, managing and mitigating project risk
* Proactively managing project scope to ensure we are aligned with the commercially agreed deliverables
* Managing the overall schedule to ensure work is assigned and completed on time and within budget

Qualities we are seeking:
* Excellent grasp of technical issues
* Highly organised
* Ability to work under stress
* Large project, large company experience
* Understanding of and sensibility for the complexity of multi-party projects and consequent requirement to deal with diverse individuals and groups
