Technical Project Manager

Madison, WI

At Fetch Rewards, we have two sayings that sum up the ethos of our organization launched in 2013:

Defeat the Odds!

What's next?

Our vision is to leverage technology to transform shopping into an engaging, rewarding, and delightful experience, ultimately propelling the time-worn grocery shopping experience into the 21st century. Our technology platform, based around a free smartphone app, ensures that users have the best shopping experience possible. Headquartered in Madison, WI with offices in Chicago, Denver and New York, we pride ourselves on two things -- the caliber of our work and the scope of our ambition.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Create and manage the plan for moving technical solutions to final client hand-off (using the appropriate tools, processes, and techniques)
  • Facilitate key meetings (kickoff, status, retrospective), track open issues, provide notes and action items from meetings, and monitor progress to ensure projects meet deadlines
  • Develop a basic understanding of our applications and systems so you can guide and challenge the tech team appropriately when issues arise
  • Assemble and coordinate the internal and external teams to gain consensus on deliverables from each team
  • Collaborate with the team to adapt as variables change and escalate to management as needed

SKILLS WE BELIEVE YOU NEED FOR THIS POSITION:

  • 3-5 years managing software development projects
  • Highly organized and detail oriented
  • Excellent leadership and people skills
  • Fire extinguisher (or ability to handle your hair being on fire while maintaining a calm disposition). We operate in a very fast paced, dynamic environment
  • Love of Dogs! . . . Or just tolerance. We're a very canine friendly workplace.

SKILLS WE BELIEVE WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR THIS POSITION:

  • Software development experience
  • Experience with agile software development frameworks
  • PMP Certification or other project management training/education
  • Experience using the Atlassian suite (JIRA, Confluence, etc.)

PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENTS:

We know we're both succeeding when:

  • Projects are being completed on time with a reasonable feature set and low technical debt.
  • The project stakeholders and leadership team are completely up to speed on the status of our projects.
  • You have strong working relationships with our technical and business teams, as well as third-party vendors
  • Our documentation repository is well organized and up-to-date.
  • You find yourself excited to tell people about what we're building here at Fetch. You wake up truly excited because you know what you do today will directly impact a young growing company.
