Do you want to help a very ambitious startup move even faster by clearing obstacles for our development team?
Likvido is a (very) fast-growing startup. We are 25 employees now, and we have just raised a seed round to realize our huge ambitions for the coming years.
We’re now looking for a project manager, who is responsible for running our sprints, test features, coordinate releases and be the go-to person for our developers. We will also pay for SCRUM courses, so you can implement that in Likvido!
At Likvido we’re working with bi-weekly development sprints. We already have a product-owner, who is responsible for preparing a backlog of tasks.
Your job is to make sure as many items from the backlog get solved! If we break that down, that means you will be responsible for:
Be responsible for the sprint-plannings, daily standup format, and other recurring developers meetings
Be the go-to person for the developers with any questions. Your job is to find the answer (typically coordinating with the rest of the company).
Help test features from a business perspective, to verify tasks are ready for a release
Follow-up on all the tasks in the current sprint, update our issue system and push all features forward
Be the constant force for getting features released. Make sure no tasks get stuck, but always moved forward until they’re done
Today, the role is basically filled by our CTO (who is also writing this job ad..). I need to get out of everything day-to-day, and you’re a success in this job if I don’t have to worry about any day-to-day in the IT department. Our product owner will deliver the prioritized roadmap, you will be responsible for getting as many tasks solved every sprint as possible.
Practically, I would expect the role will be something like:
25 % testing / releasing
25 % meetings (developers or stakeholders)
25 % coordinating and answering questions
25 % planning sprints / process / improving whole flow
But, hey, being honest - I never hired for this role before. So I guess we will see.
We’re very open to different backgrounds for this role. If you come from a non-tech background, coding background, testing background or even a product background - doesn’t matter.
However, the following things are very important:
Fluent in English
You should LOVE structure and loves to make project plans (and follow up on them)
You’re social and outgoing. You need to coordinate with many people in a company while being remote
You’re above average IT-savvy. You should be able to: 1) download development programs & run applications from your computer 2) use many different systems & programs
It’s a huge plus if you’ve worked with SaaS (software-as-a-service) before, or has worked in accounting systems.
This job comes with several perks and benefits
Time is precious. Make it count. Morning person or night owl, this job is for you.
Get your caffeine fix to get you started and keep you going.
Easy access and treehugger friendly workplace.
Social gatherings and games; hang out with your colleagues.
Peckish after lunch? We got your back with soft drinks, treats and fruit.
