Project Manager

Amman, Jordan

Software Project Manager will be required to operate Vardot projects from inception, to go-live and beyond. That said, as a Project Manager at Vardot, with a role built around creating the web, you'll be handling a number of responsibilities including client management, team management, business analysis, quality assurance, and cost management towards successful completion of projects in excellent quality and high customer satisfaction.

Responsibilities:
  • You will certainly spend plenty of time tracking budgets and schedules, managing scope, creating project plans, scrubbing ticket queues, calling out risk, and managing a development team to successful project completion. You'll need to master the delicate balance of too much process and not enough process. We're all about flexibility, so we're not an agile shop or a waterfall shop either. We fall somewhere in-between, and we customize our process to fit the needs of any given project.

  • You are the front lines for client contact. Some clients are a dream to work with. Others can be a nightmare. Your job is to keep them all happy, even in the face of delivering bad news. You have to know how to steer projects while always keeping the client's needs in mind. You'll need to be strategic about when you can handle issues cropping up, and when it's time to escalate before it's too late.

  • Occasionally you'll find a client who has crystal clear vision for their project and a perfect list of requirements and implementation suggestions. However, in the vast majority of cases, you're going to be hand-holding the client through the discovery and design process to arrive at a business/technical specification that developers can execute upon. Developers will generally have your back on the technical side, but from a marketing standpoint, the more strategic and knowledgeable you are around web architecture, user experience, design, content, SEO/search, social media, and analytics, the better. The client knows what they want, but asking the right questions to get all the answers is crucial to the planning process. And improper planning will always set you up for failure on the project management side of things.

  • As the person most connected to the client's marketing goals and the project status, you'll be in a position where you can naturally act as a non-salesy salesperson. You'll manage the project backlog/phase 2 wishlist as phase 1 progresses and be in the hot seat to have conversations about future phases of the project with the client. You won't be on your own on the sales front, but your input is invaluable when it comes to knowledge about the client's needs and whether clients are a good fit for your agency from the profitability and mutual client/agency happiness standpoint.

  • QA engineers can test and test again, but you're the person who owns the client's vision for the end deliverable. Is it up to quality standards? Does it look good? Has thought been given to the client's ease of use when entering content? Are all edge cases covered or knowingly not in scope? You're the person who makes the last call on when a site is ready for client demos and client review.
