The Challonge team at Logitech is looking for a Software Project Manager to help organize and facilitate its development efforts.
Challonge is a competition management website that helps organizers streamline registration, progression, and record keeping. Founded in 2009, Challonge offers more than 25 competition types as both a web-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform and an API that can be integrated into websites, games, bots, and other software applications.
The ideal candidate is highly organized and comfortable collaborating with a wide range of audiences, including product owners, external clients, and other business units within Logitech. Outside of the assigned duties of this role, someone who is self-motivated and adaptable will thrive and have the opportunity to grow into adjacent areas of interest.

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun doing it. As a company, we’re small and flexible enough for every person to take initiative and make things happen. But we’re big enough in our portfolio, and reach, for those actions to have a global impact. That’s a pretty sweet spot to be in and we’re always striving to keep it that way.
