Hi, you finally found us! 

Why work at Blue Coding? 

At Blue Coding we specialize in hiring excellent developers and amazing people from all over Latin America and other parts of the world. For the past 9 years, we’ve helped cutting-edge companies in the United States and Canada -both large and small, build great development teams and develop great products. Online shops, digital agencies, SaaS providers, and software consulting firms are a few of our clients. Our team of over 100 engineers is distributed in more than 10 countries across the Americas. We are a fully remote company working with a wide array of technologies and have expertise in every stage of the software development process.  

Our team is highly connected, united, and culturally diverse, and our collaborators are involved in many initiatives around the world, from wildlife preservation to volunteering at local charities. We also participate in group activities like movie nights, trivia, and meme competitions. We stand for honesty, fairness, respect, efficiency, hard work, and cooperation.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a Technical Project Manager to support our client's Technology Organization. Our client drives cross-functional alignment, creates process efficiencies, and delivers large-scale strategic initiatives in a rapidly growing Legal Technology space.
 
The ideal candidate will join a team of technical project and program managers who focus on driving business-critical initiatives across the product development organization. You will be a strong self-starter and, therefore, able to drill into business data and technical trade-offs to identify clear direction and focus for your tasks, projects, and programs. You know how to continue to move forward in the face of ambiguity and imperfect knowledge. 
You will have experience working with multiple partners across an organization and are skilled at building and maintaining relationships. You’ll demonstrate a successful track record leading medium to large projects using agile methodologies. You’ll be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. You show good judgment, making trade-offs between immediate and long-term business needs.
