You will work to map out all interdependencies, resolve daily conflicts, and establish best practices. In a world where the speed of change is forever increasing and competing priorities are common place, being able to adapt, manage through influence rather than authority, and bring a team first attitude will be essential.

  • Analyze and report-out sprint metrics and provide retrospective feedback to drive continuous feedback
  • Facilitate transparency across Kalderos and the senior management team by providing regular updates through the creation and ownership of a visual management tool - reporting on progress and escalating issues as appropriate
  • Manage all internal and external interdependencies and engage all necessary stakeholders to effectively manage all risks to time, scope and budget
  • Establish and maintain close collaboration between all commercial and technical team members
  • As we continue you will be responsible for scaling the PMO in a smart and timely fashion

  • 5+ years of experience working in project management delivering technology solutions to market
  • Expertise in agile software development and the use of scrum as a project management tool
  • Personality profile to fit into a high-growth, entrepreneurial culture that requires teamwork and significant interaction with employees at all levels. You must be willing to do real work, and don’t need a big staff to get it done!
  • Be able to work effectively in a highly collaborative environment where industry expertise, technology, and design share equal importance in the development of Kalderos’ solutions 
  • Inspires commitment, high energy and positive attitudes
  • Lead in a manner consistent with Kalderos’ culture that fosters open communication, personal initiative, hard work, and gratitude.
  • Analytical mindset with a demonstrated ability using data to influence decision making.
  • Executive-level communicator with a strong ability to influence without requiring authority
