Project Manager

| Marina Del Rey & Playa Vista

We are looking for a versatile & out of box innovator who will be at the forefront of cutting AI technology that is disrupting a combined $800 billion (and growing) industry for software build and operate services, selling into both the B2C and B2B markets. The Project Manager will take a project from Design to Delivery. These experts play the role of the product to the customer.

Why We Need This Role

As a Project Manager you should be able to plan, implement, and track specific short-term deliverables. You should be comfortable in laying out highly detailed product requirements, strategizing product roadmap, and implementing competitive insights and growth hacks.

Why You Should Join

Our culture is a cross between serious business and quirky startup; as we’ve grown from $0.5m to $45m in less than 4 years. We want team players who roll up their sleeves, are open to being challenged and also understand the importance of respect, integrity and can that balance that with irreverence, cheekiness and a brand that aspires to do away with the taboo of being a “boring” software company. Most importantly, any role in Engineer.ai is like joining our family.

First Six Month Deliverables

  • Project/Product Ownership: You should make project goals your own and use your skills and expertise to inspire a sense of shared purpose within the project team.
  • Responsibility and Accountability for the Project/Product: Responsible for using best practice PMO methodology to create a project plan to fit the stakeholders / customers’ needs and deliver with-in budget on desired outcomes within the stipulated timeline.
  • Define Project/Product Roles and Responsibilities: Work closely with the Customer Experience Lead, Sales Team, Engineering, Design and QA to define the project scope and objectives.
  • Makes Things Happen: Have the knowledge, skills and experience to be able to recognize when problems surface or potential problems are looming. He/she should be capable of taking on different challenges and making things possible even though they seem impossible at first.
  • Promotes Customer Involvement: The Project Manager recognizes that project success is directly related to satisfying the customer; therefore, customer involvement is essential to ensure that the right product is built.
  • Promotes Good Working Relationships: The Project Manager serves as a role model in promoting good working relationships across a project/product. Project Managers cultivate the people skills needed to develop trust and communication among all of a project's stakeholders: its sponsors, those who will make use of the project's results, those who command the resources needed, and the project team members.

  • Knowledge of project/product metrics, including gathering, reporting, trend analysis, creation, and metrics.
  • Ability to identify issues and problems, generate solutions and choose appropriate alternatives using basic root cause analysis.
  • Manage project scope by assessing requirements changes, determining and conveying impact on budget, time and risk.
  • Manage client expectations, anticipates operational and tactical risks and tracks them.
  • Clarify, identify, and track requirements and issues, remove barriers, resolve minor project issues and escalate to immediate manager where required.

An Insider's view of Engineer.ai

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Engineer.ai LA is a bunch of hardworking people in open and fun atmosphere. We're playful - we bond over our favorite food trucks and spar over who controls the office playlist. Calling us a family may be cliche, but it's pretty accurate.

Customer Product Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Through our Builder product, we’re making software accessible to everyone. It’s cool because software engineering has been disrupting industries since the 1980s but never evolving its own and I’m excited to be a part of the team that’s doing just that.

Alex

Global Vice President of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown leaps and bounds since being at Engineer.ai. When I first started, my focus was primarily on lead generation and business development. My role since then has transformed into much more as I've had the opportunity to dabble in sales, partnership related initiatives and product management to some extent.

We look for people who are passionate about loosely held beliefs. We have a culture which encourages our people to be curious, experiment, and use their experienced points of view to challenge the status quo. We start with why in everything we do, it's part of our core DNA. We want everyone to be entrepreneurial.
