Sr. IT Project Manager

Company: Ascent
Location: Englewood
Posted on: November 9, 2018

Job Description:

Job ID: 18-08695
Title: Technical Project Manager
Location: Englewood, CO
Type: Contract-to-hire

Job Description:

MUST HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH AGILE AND WATERFALL

This Project Manager need is going to support our client's OTT product launch abroad. Their OTT (Over the Top media services) product project has been in flight for 3-4 years.

Candidates who have OTT experience are preferred. Candidates who have implemented and distributed content internationally are wanted. Someone who has experience with other content distribution platforms are what they want (sling, viper, etc) Others would be Netflix, amazon, hulu, apple, etc.

Personality - Need someone who is extremely proper and polished. Candidates need to be very detail oriented but also need to have the awareness of when to dive in or pull back. When answering questions they need people who sit comfortably between being too vague and being over the top. They need to know when a situation calls to just touch on the high points or dig into the details.

This client really needs to see longevity. Experience working with streaming content is ideal. The biggest miss has been finding people who have a "solid executive presence". This position will require people to make executive presentations so having that skill is a must and then knowing what info to share and what not is huge too.

QUALIFICATIONS:


  • Minimum 4 years related I.T., Technology, Media or Broadcast project management experience and/or training; or equivalent combination of education and experience
  • Minimum of 4-5+ years' experience as a Project Manager
  • Proficiency in project/program management methodologies and practices required (PMBOK, EVM, etc.) Knowledge of and competency in project management processes, including planning tasks and allocating resources, risk management, issues management, time management, financial management, team management, working in teams, quality management, monitoring and reporting, documentation and information management.



    • Proven team leadership experience and leading diverse teams
    • Demonstrates accountability, responsibility, and a passion for project management with a drive to improve
    • Self-motivated, motivating, and has a positive attitude
    • Detail-oriented and extremely organized
