Senior Project Manager

Working from home or at the Wrocław/ Gdańsk office

As a leader of software development projects, you need to know the software development lifecycle. The more you have in common with programming, the better a fit you’ll be. Infrastructure, deployment and integration projects are good experiences to have. However, our core activity is software development for external international clients, and we will look for this in your background.

Orientation in Agile methodologies is vital as we want to work very closely with our clients. We cooperate mainly with clients based in the UK and Ireland, so fluent knowledge of English is a must for Project Managers in Objectivity. Rather than delivering systems we build relationships. Our clients remain with us for years, which is why we employ Project Managers with a people-oriented mindset and strong interpersonal skills. We are responsible for delivering value for money to our clients with maximum effectiveness, so we want people ready to take ownership and accept accountability.

Marta

Recruitment & Onboarding Specialist

Hi, I'm Marta. My strengths, according to the Gallup Institute are: Empathy, Harmony, Input, Intellection, and Futuristic. This means that, from the very first moment of meeting you during the recruitment process, I think about our future cooperation and try to deepen my knowledge of your competences. I’m perfectly aware of the tension related to looking for a job, and that’s why I pay much attention to the very atmosphere in order to make you feel comfortable.

We have a team of more than 700 experts, who know their stuff. We use common sense more often than we use the procedures. And most probably, we play the most fierce table football matches in Wrocław. We develop Enterprise-class software in the atmosphere full of the English sense of humour.
