Project Manager

Job Req ID: 281 - amaysim Australia - New South Wales

What's it about?

amaysim is transforming.. and we need your help! We're no longer the start-up we once were. We've become an award-winning, listed telco, servicing well over 1,000,000 customers. To allow us to continue growing and delivering an amazingly simple experience for our customers, we're changing the way we build and deliver software. We're making the transition from projects to products, legacy to new, balls of mud to greenfield(s), manual to automation, datacenter to cloud. We're well underway on this journey, and we've made huge strides, but we need your help to maintain the momentum we've already achieved.

 

If delivering high-quality solutions to interesting problems, surrounded by like-minded people within an amazing workplace culture is what you're seeking then look no further. As a project manager at amaysim, you will be working in a mixed discipline environment. Our internal software development is built using Agile methodologies, but this does not extend to all our projects, especially ones that involve 3rd Parties. At amaysim, you will work on a large variety of projects and must be comfortable with both Agile and Waterfall. As a company, we value our core principles of reliability, simplicity, agility and empathy above all else, and unlike some, we genuinely live and breathe these values. Everything we do, we do with these at the forefront of our minds, and we truly believe that this help set us apart from other employers and help inspire us to make amazing products for our customers.

Who we are looking for?

You! No seriously, if you think you have some or all of the below skills or experience we'd love to hear from you:

 

  • Experience managing projects from varying technologies

  • Coordination of technology and business people

  • Creating and managing detailed, high-quality project plans

  • Managing third-party vendors and service providers

  • Building and driving mature project management methodologies

  • Experience building lean processes

  • Promoting agile methodologies across the business

  • Contribute to the prioritisation process with the broader amaysim team 

  • Strategic contributions to establishing a project management office in a maturing technology environment
     

In addition to the above, we are looking for someone that can help drive us forward in terms of project management maturity. You will have experience introducing new processes and optimising existing processes. You are someone who understands that processes are a double edged sword and is always balancing freedom and efficiency with reliability. You will be just as proud of the processes you have removed as the ones you have added.

What else?

As a PM we don't expect you to be the master of all, but to give you an idea, here are the technology's we use to build our platforms:

  • Languages: GoLang, Java, Cold Fusion and Ruby on Rails
  • Developer Tools: JIRA & Confluence
  • Automation: We go by DevOps practices, that means our devs and operations teams work hand in hand throughout the process. It also means the first question you should always ask is 'can it be automated?'
  • Infrastructure: We love the cloud and run everything in Amazon Web Services. We are also in the process of building our next generation dockerised platform.
  • Platform types: High volume systems, Billing/account and e-commerce systems

 

It is not mandatory, but desirable that you would have any of the certificates below:

  • PMP, Prince2 or similar
  • Scrum Master Certificate or similar

 

We're less concerned about 'seniority' through years of experience and much more interested your actual accomplishments, your high levels of motivation, your sense of ambition and desire to innovate as well as your collaborative and team-focused attitude. We'd love to hear about some of the other projects where you've displayed these traits and more. If you have examples of your work projects or presentations you've done, even better!

What's in it for you?

You'll get the chance to work in an environment that has an enormous appetite for change; a place that truly values and fosters the innovation you can bring to the teams you work with. We try to be as lean as we can, avoiding red tape and bureaucracy. We do our best to maintain the 'startup' look and feel, but without the constraints and overheads usually associated with less well-established organisations.

We're small enough that your voice will be heard loud and clear, and your (excellent) ideas and innovations will be championed and rapidly adopted. And we're large enough that we can execute on these ideas at scale and your work will be used by hundreds of thousands of (happy) customers.

 

But wait, there's more. As well as being an awesome place to innovate, drive change and make a difference, amaysim also tries to be a place that keeps you excited to come in on a Monday morning through all kinds of fun extras, including:

  • an amaysim phone plan (what else??) and a generous subsidy towards a new phone/tablet to use it on
  • an extra day of annual leave on your birthday
  • covering the costs of your attendance to any and all meetup groups (taxis and time-in-lieu)
  • 'amaysim ideas' sessions several times a month with many external speakers (Facebook, Dropbox and much more)
  • swish offices, with even swisher ones beginning construction soon and rolling out in August
  • join the entire company on 'Culture days' at least twice a year (normally at a harbour-side location - Taronga Zoo most recently), to discuss and shape how the company is run (and to see the Penguins)
  • a thriving social life, with events happening most months  
  • subsidised gym membership & free F45 training at lunchtimes

and many, many others...
