Project Manager, Smart Recordset
San Francisco, CA
R&D – Engineering
A great project manager for Smart Recordset will live and breathe the project schedule, status rollup, and release facilitation for the most heavily used parts of PlanGrid. You should be obsessed with measuring project health and team effectiveness in pursuit of disrupting the heart of what PlanGrid is today.
You will work within the R&D organization with the knowledge and influence to bridge the gaps between product and engineering. Working with the initiative leads and product managers, you will expose gaps in project plans and facilitate proper breakdown of work into appropriately scoped deliverables. You will commit to understanding the direction of our product and use this information to convey status within the organization.
Our project manager must take the principles we build our products by and apply them to the processes that run the team: ingesting and processing project information to make it useful and accessible to the organization.
What You'll Do:
- Coordinate the design, implementation and delivery of software to Sheets, Docs and their respective connections.
- Work with engineering managers and tech leads to build schedule automation into our issue tracking software to ensure early detection of project slippage.
- Perform weekly audits of project schedule and task accounting rolling this information up into our quarterly investment and stoplight tracking databases.
- Design process changes and propose tools that ensure the highest quality of releases.
- Facilitate weekly defect triage processes.
- Own periodic communications to the R&D organization around major product releases.
- Be a point of contact for dashboard maintenance, and software estimation best practices.
In the first 3 months you will:
- Define project tracking best practices with existing Project managers within the organization.
- Implement the best practices defined above within the Smart Recordset Group.
- Update SRS communications and process documentation to match.
- Clean up and standardize our internal JIRA triage and ticket management processes that we will build processes around.
- Roll out new team dashboards to radiate information on Schedule and other key product metrics.
