Project Manager (Intermediate-level)
Are you a junior+ to intermediate level Project Manager in a social / software environment looking for an opportunity to take your career to the next level?
Then bring your 3 - 6 years of project management experience to the largest network of social properties around the globe - Diply. We have 130M fans across Lifestyle, Entertainment, DIY and Crafts, Parenting, and more for you to unleash your talents in managing medium to large size projects to successful completion following project discipline principles and processes.
You might know us best for some of our social brands: Crafty, Mommy Needs Vodka, Delicious, Aunty Acid and Diply Facts!. As a member of our Project Management team, you will facilitate the defining and documenting of key project parameters, create and execute project work plans, and work closely with internal stakeholders and external partners to contribute to the successful outcomes of every project.
This is the right role for you if you have…
University degree in business or computing, combined with certification in project management (may be in progress) and proven experience successfully using project management tools, methodologies and frameworks on technical development projects
at least 3 years of experience in project management, assuming progressively greater levels of responsibility and leading small to medium size projects involving software or product development in a social platform environment
exceptional relationship management and customer service skills, including the ability to work collaboratively with cross-functional project groups, internal sponsors and direct team members
exceptional skills and passion for managing small to medium sized projects producing project deliverables using project management processes and disciplines (project charters, project plans, project budgets, test strategies, implementation plans, Agile) combined with the PM software skills to make it all happen
strong presentation and communication skills including verbal, written and listening as well as an innate ability to ask the right questions and influence the resolution of issues and conflicts to drive project success
solid knowledge of digital social platforms, business intelligence/analytics, application programming, database and system design
orientation towards designing, implementing and evolving project management processes, tools, standards and practices to strengthen the company’s approach (we are still maturing our approach to project management so there is opportunity here!)
demonstrated flexibility, critical thinking skills, and an ability to work independently and effectively under pressure to meet tight and shifting timelines
About this role…
This is a new role that allows us to add capacity to this critical function in our organization. Reporting to the Director, Infrastructure Operations (Project & Process), this role is responsible for delivering project management services across the organization, managing the product roadmap for the organization and working to increase the effectiveness of our ability to deliver projects on time, on target and on budget.
This is NOT a senior level role and the projects under management are NOT big scope ERP-type undertakings. The projects involve in-house software development to create business reporting tools, user interface solutions and mechanisms to facilitate content distribution across a range of social media platforms.
So, we are looking for an extremely talented junior-level+, or a strong intermediate-level, project manager who prefers working in an entrepreneurial environment on a variety of projects and is ready for a new challenge.
Diply has offices in both Toronto and London (ON), however, our product & technology team is primarily based in London so the ideal candidate will come from this region. During this time, all staff members are working from home until further notice.
If you are interested, please include both a copy of your resume and a cover letter explaining why you believe this job has your name on it.
Candidates without cover letters will not be considered.
We are committed to employment equity and encourage all people, including women, visible minorities, persons with disabilities and persons of aboriginal decent to apply. Upon your request, we provide accommodation for disabilities during the recruitment and selection process.
