Time is money.
And wasted time means wasted money. We hate that. If you do too, you might be just who we are looking for: 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 is not hyperbole. We are 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 do not know our name -- we keep things hush, hush so our clients can shine -- but you have 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.
With this pivotal project management job, you’ll help ICS manage the 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 software development and UX design moves you to the head of the line!
Here’s what you can expect to do:
Are you up to the challenge? Here is what you need to be considered for this important
- Act as a liaison between technical staff and a customer’s program manager

- Work closely with customer and project team to manage stakeholder expectations
- Develop the resource-loaded project schedule in MS Project in accordance with the customer or other constraints; establish milestones and a cost basis for the estimate.

- Manage the project close-out process
- Contribute to the development of PMO assets and processes
- Establish credibility at all levels in the client organization to ensure project continuity and to enhance future business opportunities

- Experience in new product development, sustaining engineering, or manufacturing
- Flexibility to handle demands of a rapidly growing and changing workplace
- Adequate discipline and professionalism to work diligently within published FDA device regulatory guidelines and rigorously follow internal Standard Operating Procedures.
