Location: Waltham, MA

Time is money.
 
And wasted time means wasted money. We hate that. If you do too, you might be just who we’re looking for: Sr. Technical Project Manager who thrives on delivering every project on time, within budget and scope.
 
Who are we? Integrated Computer Solutions (ICS) is a Boston-area software development and UX design firm dedicated to inventing the future. This isn’t hyperbole. We’re working on some of the most exciting and innovative tech projects in development today. Think flying taxis. Operating-room control systems. Self-driving cars. Miniature x-rays. Next-gen restaurant equipment. Interactive experiences for scientific labs.
 
No, you probably don’t not know our name -- we keep things hush, hush so our clients can shine -- but you’ve likely seen our work. If you’re high energy, calm under pressure, and flexible enough to handle multiple projects at one, you might be perfect for this high-visibility role.
 
Here’s the scoop.
 
JOB OVERVIEW
 
With this pivotal project management job, you’ll help ICS manage execution of both product-driven assignments featuring a heavy engineering component, as well as experience-driven assignments that encompass a large visual design component.
 
A background in both engineering/software development and UX/visual design moves you to the head of the line!
 
Here’s what you can expect to do:
  • Act as a liaison between development staff and technical manager
  • Facilitate/participate in meetings throughout the project lifecycle on topics including project planning, UX, system design, Joint Application Development, and User Acceptance Testing
  • Work closely with customer and project team to develop and manage a balanced project plan
  • Develop the project Work Breakdown Structure at a level of detail appropriate to the project
  • Develop the resource-loaded project schedule in MS Project in accordance with customer or other constraints; establish milestones and a cost basis for estimate.
  • Actively manage project control and execution
  • Update project schedule regularly with actual cost and schedule status
  • Analyze and manage cost and schedule variance against baseline
  • Conduct assessments and evaluations of project performance and quality through the independent analysis and interpretation of objective and subjective evidence (including project status reports, quality assurance, and configuration management audit results), and through direct discussion with project team members
  • Manage the project close-out process
  • Establish credibility at all levels in the client organization to ensure project continuity and to enhance future business opportunities
Are you up to the challenge? Here’s what you need to be considered for this important role: 
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent combination of education and experience. (Degree degree in business, mathematics, engineering, management information systems, computer science preferred, as well as familiarity with UX design.)
  • 5+ years of experience in quality assurance, engineering or management information systems
  • Experience working with project management methodology, including project planning, budget development and estimation, and control and assurance; expertise using project management software; and general finance and accounting knowledge
  • Experience with Agile methodologies, including Scrum
  • Experience executing project management policies and procedures
  • Experience with Earned Value Management (EVM)
If you’ve checked those boxes, your star will rise if you have these additional qualifications:
  • PMI PMP (Project Management Professional) certification
  • 5-7 years direct experience as Project Manager in an IT capacity
And, of course we expect you to have strong communication skills (you need to be comfortable interfacing with customers on a regular basis), the ability to adapt to and successfully lead an existing team, and a sense of humor.
