You just might be a Bluebeam Software Project Manager if…

  • You sat with the smart kids at lunch in high school.
  • You translate “Tres Amigos” as a product owner, a developer, and a QA tester.
  • You’ve used some sort of scrum board in your personal life.
  • You’ve had serious discussions on the merits of Kirk vs. Picard or Star Wars vs. Star Trek.
  • You have a scheme for organizing your inbox, and have convinced someone else to try it.
  • You’ve gotten in trouble for being too honest.
  • You can slice up a user story six ways from Sunday.
  • You’ve ever been at work at 2am cheering on a team. (This doesn’t happen often at Bluebeam, but you’d be there to wave the flag and help if it did.)
  • Your phone is filled with pictures of whiteboards.
  • You catch a buzz from building great software.

 

Bluebeam is growing like crazy and needs a talented cat-herder to help build our software experience on the desktop platform.  As a software project manager, you’ll be an integral part of the development team, where you will provide a key leadership role in helping the team deliver the best possible product to our customers.

 

The position requires a mix of hard and soft skills: an instinct for recognizing and resolving technical issues, but also an innate desire to bring order to chaos, and a knack for working with people across all parts of the software delivery pipeline.

 

About the job:

  • Serve as a scrum master for one or more development teams.
  • Coordinate major feature development between multiple teams.
  • Champion the development process, the quality of our software, and the delivery of the product.
  • Develop roadmaps for your teams in cooperation with product, development, and QA teams.
  • Track, monitor, and report on product and development team deliverables.
  • Proactively manage changes in your software releases, identify potential hurdles, and devise contingency plans.

 

Your experience:

  • 3+ years as a software project manager or scrum master in an Agile environment.
  • You won’t write code in this role, but a technical background helps.  A degree in Software Engineering or a related field is great.  Or experience with programming languages (especially C# or C++) works too. 
  • CSM, CSPO, PMP or similar certifications – or education in these areas.  We aren’t big on certifications, but you should know this terrain.

 

If you think you are good match for the Bluebeam team, please send the following:

  • Your resume
  • Your cover letter that reflectsyour personality and addresses specifically why you are a fit for Bluebeam and this role. (No generic ones, please!!)
