I am working with a growing software product company in Glasgow who are looking to recruit an experienced Software Project Manager to the team.

The company:

The company are 30 years old and have recently grown to around 150 staff, with steady growth across the business. They operate within the Financial Services sector and create a specific type of platform and product. Their software helps to automate a process and saves the client valuable time – as well as cutting operating costs in half.

The company are based in central Glasgow and are continuing to grow their tech team. They have an experienced and healthy software development team inhouse, and you will work closely alongside them.

This is a Software Project Manager role, looking for an individual with a strong software background (ideally SaaS). You will be a key part of the team that helps to implement the software, and will have a key understanding of the implementation lifecycle. You will be responsible for managing end-to-end technical delivery projects through effective estimation and planning, management of resources, budget management and risk mitigation strategies.

You will work closely with the Software, Customer Success, Marketing and Delivery teams to provide a complete service and be able to identify potential opportunities. On top of this, you will be working alongside those teams to facilitate the resolution of issues, managing queries and coming to a positive outcome. As this is a senior role, the expectation is also to be comfortable with presenting and liaising at ‘C’ level, both internally and externally.

Your background:

Strong software delivery experience across project management

Software Implementation background (ideally SaaS also)

Strong collaborator who can work across all areas of the business from pre-sales through to Delivery and onto Customer Success
