As Software Project Manager for multi-product engagements, you will be part of the Project Management Office (PMO), which is a centralized team of Project Managers supporting the product groups composing the Security Center (SC) ecosystem. The PMO orchestrates the releases of SC and ensures all software components are well aligned for a unified product launch.
You will be key in securing proper scope, quality, timeline and very influential in the unification of processes and key performance indicators. As such you will interact with all the leadership levels of the organization but more closely with project managers from different product groups, development managers, and other services, such as customer support, marketing, technical documentation, and training.
The main purpose of this role is to secure intergroup dependencies in complex and special projects outside of the normal release cycle. This is a highly collaborative environment enabling creativity and teamwork.
You will be given coaching and guidance to succeed and excel at your work by a team of project managers that are very familiar with the Genetec ecosystem and ways of working. Onboarding is well organized, offering training about our vast array of products as well as training on processes used such as Kanban. This is a highly supportive group that thrives on everyone's success.
