Engagement Manager

If you like to discuss requirements and to negotiate scope with the clients, making the bridge between technical and business, this is for you.

Short version: we’re looking for Engagement Managers for remote and on-site positions.

What is an Engagement Manager?

An Engagement Manager is someone that has the ultimate ability to communicate well as well as sharp negotiation skills that will lead the project to success. A project can fail with a good Engagement Manager, but it can’t succeed with a bad one. An oversimplistic definition? If a project were the solar system, the engagement manager would be the sun.

What you’ll be mostly doing?

You’re going to be the bridge between the stakeholders and the technical team. You need to understand what the client needs and manage their expectations against what the team can deliver. Sprint planning and review, reporting, manage budgets and timelines, scopes, changes… well, that’s a lot of work.

What are we looking for?

Ideally, you will have some background in related projects – being, or not, an Engagement Manager. You should be aware of how software is built and delivered, you should know how the Agile methodology works and you need to be able to communicate – and communicate well.

Communication is especially important, because there are a lot of ways to same the same thing and, most often than not, the same thing can have several meanings. A tennis ball can be described either as a “tennis ball” or as “a round object of small size with a bouncy behavior that may release some fur into the air when hit and it is used either in a sport or just to entertain dogs”. See the difference?

Ability to properly communicate (write and speak) in English is mandatory. Ability to travel, if required, is a plus.

An overview of the process

Before going into the process: you don’t need to send both your Resume and your LinkedIn – you can send it, but we don’t require it. Just send one.

Once you apply, we will get in touch with you using the preferred contact choice. We’ll discuss the important things first: expectations, ambitions, availability and salary package.

Then, depending on the previous data and our current needs, we’ll follow up with an interview. We want to understand what you know (hard skills) and how well you fit in the team (soft skills).

If we think you’re a great fit, an offer is coming to your way.

If for the moment, we don’t have any opportunity for you, we’ll let you know either way. You’ll then have the chance to decide if you want us to keep your contact information or not.

All the data provided by you through any contact channel will only be used for the scope of this opportunity.
