Job Description

Position: IT Project Manager, Mustang

Reporting to: IT Program Manager, Mustang

The role

The IT Project Manager for Mustang is a member of a team dedicated to a multi-year journey to replace and rebuild the core platform used to administrate policies for customers through the policy lifecycle including billing and claims management. Since this is uncharted territory for us, you'll be able to heavily influence our success by generating unique ideas and solutions from your experience by applying them to our situation. It is a unique opportunity to bring all of your knowledge, experience, and skills to work every day to help us deliver this transformational program for our business. If you like a challenge, complex problems to solve, and the autonomy to act on your ideas to deliver unique solutions, submit your information today and let's get started.

What you'll be doing:

  • Deliver projects to completion through waterfall (current state) and agile (future state) methodology
  • Build strong relationships with stakeholders, BA's, end users, IT and suppliers and manage their expectations as well as ensure their accountability
  • Report regularly on status of the journey and identify, raise and resolve issues quickly and completely
  • Full project accountability: from managing the change to budgeting and building a team with the right skills to deliver the solution
  • Working with our software vendor to coordinate development between our team and theirs.

Here are some of the requirements we would ideally like to see:

  • 7+ years of current experience in project management (whether in the IT space or on the business side)
  • Fundamental understanding of IT systems and architecture (Can you describe technical solutions to the business and be able to talk to your team equally well?)
  • Experience working with a business transformation project
  • Experience working with external vendors (Our software vendor is leading the development of the platform initially)
  • Ability to travel occasionally (We may need to ask for your help by going to other offices to work with key people delivering the solution, but most all of the work is Atlanta based so this won't be frequent or common)
  • Experience working in a matrix environment (We have a lot of dependent projects that we'll connect you to)
  • Skilled communicator who can convey ideas concisely and appropriately to different audiences (Brevity and concision is an important skill)
  • Encouraged by a fast paced ambitious environment where deadlines and budgets are crucial and quality matters most

Desirable Skills:

  • PMP certified
  • Certified Scrum Master
  • Knowledge of message hub platforms like (Webmethods or similar technologies) and key messaging concepts
