Project Manager

As Project Manager your daily struggle will be making things happen on time, on schedule and on quality. You may have to oversee multiple projects at the same time, which range from big endeavors in scope and duration -such as the development of a new product- to small, one-off initiatives. Your colleagues will trust you to keep an oversight of all project-related activities and will need your support and decision when a schedule conflict arises. You are the orchestrator, interfacing with cross-functional teams of engineers and other stakeholders. The perfect Project Manager will be able to gracefully balance the demands of all stakeholders, while keeping a productive and harmonious work rhythm leading to a successful project delivery.
