  • Schedule and facilitate all project meetings and agile ceremonies (Scrum and Kanban).
  • Participate in scoping sessions, and prioritise delivery with clients.
  • Work closely with the Technical Lead to create and maintain a backlog, ensuring milestones are planned and features are broken down into actionable pieces of work.

  • Facilitate communication between the client and the Deimos team to resolve any dependencies and impediments.
  • Identify and manage project risks and ensure any concerns are escalated to appropriate channels.
  • Establish, gather, analyse and report on key KPIs to measure the overall success of the project delivery, as well as the team’s effectiveness.
  • Be responsible for project resource scheduling and forecasting, working closely with the DevOps team managers and director.

What you must have:

  • 3 or more years of experience in Project Management and Project Ownership, with a good understanding of the SDLC and DevSecOps workflow.

  • Experience with resource scheduling and forecasting.
  • The ability to take ownership and manage several projects concurrently.
  • Exceptional organisational, time-management and multi-tasking skills.
  • Accurate reporting skills and proven risk identification and resolution abilities.
  • Confidence to build, grow and manage client relationships.

Not a deal-breaker, and would be a plus

  • Qualification or certification in Project Management / Scrum Master / Agile Project Management/ Agile Product Owner.
  • Remote working experience (managing remote teams and clients, working asynchronously).
  • Thriving on improving processes and inspiring teams to to their best work, while delivering client value.
