The Opportunity:

MedPage Today is hiring! We are looking for a Junior level Agile/Scrum Project Manager who is passionate about leading a cross-functional team of technology professionals to get things done. This position will work with two distinct teams of technologists: our New York-based tech/product team, and our Business Intelligence/Data Science team. Both of those teams seamlessly made the transition to a fully remote workforce due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so remote applicants will be seriously considered for this role.

Responsibilities:

  • Help Product Team to prioritize stories in backlog and coordinate commitment in the upcoming sprints
  • Analyze backlog to project delivery dates based on engineering team capacity, sprint schedule and dependencies on other work and teams
  • Coordinate with others on the Project and Product Management teams to ensure that projects and individual stories are Sprinted according to their priority or deadline
  • Be the front line of support for incoming BI requests to ensure prioritized tasks are routed to the appropriate team for execution
  • Identify external dependencies on work owned by other teams (data, reporting, marketing) and third-party systems (e.g. CRM system such as SalesForce, communications platforms like SailThru)
  • Facilitate stand ups, sprint planning, bug scrubbing, retrospectives, and other Scrum/Agile ceremonies
  • Mitigate risks to an active Sprint or feature-set by maintaining a reasonable scope and addressing any process bottlenecks that may arise
  • Ensure that communication and collaboration between all groups and individuals is productive and timely, regardless of geographic location

Qualifications:

  • Experience leading an Agile/Scrum team of developers and QA engineers through the Software Development Life Cycle, building technical systems in any tech stack (1-3 years)
  • Experience administering or curating Atlassian Jira (or equivalent SDLC management suite)
  • SAFe Agilist, PMP, CSM, or equivalent certifications are a must
  • Strong analytical skills, proficient in deriving metrics and creating helpful reports to manage scope and projects
  • Ability to manage multiple product initiatives, address impediments as they arise, and push to get things done
  • Experience with both public-facing web platforms and purely internal data systems is a plus
  • Understanding of how large volumes of data can be harnessed to improve business outcomes
  • Familiarity with basic database architecture and how those systems are utilized
  • Effective as a conduit or concept-translator between technical groups and non-technical stakeholders
  • Experience leading projects with a distributed team is a plus

Opportunities:

  • Join a mature, established team that understands the value of process and those that uphold it
  • Apply traditional SDLC Agile principles to a Data Science team whose output is fundamental to organizational success
  • Work in an organization that has the stability and support of a large conglomerate, but the agility, freedom, and pragmatism of a smaller company
  • Brainstorm and innovate new process improvements with the Project Management team and the cross-functional tech team
  • Use dynamic plugins, the Atlassian suite, and cloud-based software to construct useful automated reports
  • Collaborate with management to establish a plan for your long-term professional growth
