The Campaigner team at J2 Martech is looking for an experienced Technical Project Manager (TPM) to plan, coordinate, and facilitate development projects for multiple teams from start to delivery. The TPM works with Product Managers and subject matter experts to understand business requirements, translates these requirements into technical or functional specifications where needed, and shepherds them through the software development lifecycle. The TPM owns the progress of the project from the point of scheduling to the point of release to production, clearly communicates the project progress, resolves unknowns, and removes any impediments that keep the teams from completing their assigned work. Campaigner is a leading email marketing automation platform used by over 120,000 businesses to send billions of emails each month.
