We are in search of an experienced Project Manager that is looking for an opportunity to combine this role with being a Team Lead for our development team. This role is an exciting, yet challenging combination of organisational and operational tasks and supporting the team where needed. For us it is important that you know and understand the dynamics of working for a project organisation in the digital world and that you have a passion for people.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
You have a proven background in the digital work as Project Manager, preferably technical, combined with fantastic communication, leadership and teamwork skills and a natural ability to empower the team to become better at what they do.
The team is self-organised, which means that we are not looking for a “boss”. You would coach and develop your team and create an environment that supports this. You love giving constructive feedback just as much as receiving it and know what is essential to help your fellow team members improve their skills. You take your work seriously, but never shy away from a good joke ;-).
You are an enthusiastic front-runner and inspire others by your exemplary behaviour. You contribute with dedication to the organisation-wide quality assurance and way of working by proposing and implementing improvements together with your team. You are able to get out of your comfort-zone, always keeping the greater goal in mind: delivering excellent work in time with happy and motivated colleagues.
