Job Summary

Beacon Technologies is looking to hire a Project Facilitator for a remote based role.

Job Description

We are looking for an energetic, outgoing person to help execute software projects - sometimes Fortune 500s, sometimes small local nonprofits, and often folks in-between to create custom designed web and mobile applications. We work in a "lowercase A" agile development process that usually runs two-week iterations. Your day to day is spent working with devs, clients, and stakeholders to help capture & clarify requirements, break down development tasks, lead recurring meetings, test & demo software, and have fun doing it. 

Responsibilities:

 
  • Coordinating with developers throughout project iteration to ensure work is being completed each day, any blockers are removed, and deliverables are completed on-time
  • Administering the project-tracking software, ensuring that it is accurate and up-to-date 
  • Organizing multiple projects in an agile environment
  • Gathering and prioritizing client and project requirements, including writing user stories and acceptance criteria
  • Working with developers to reliably and consistently estimate user stories, finalize tasks, and coordinate changes
  • Protecting the team from over-committing and scope creep
  • Translating high-level product information into actionable tasks for the development team
  • Leading meetings (including retros, planning and review)
  • Performing quality assurance and testing
  • Compiling and reporting on delivery metrics
  • Enthusiastically working with clients and colleagues from disparate backgrounds - and with disparate goals - to create comprehensive custom software solutions
Some other attributes:
  • You're open-minded and accepting, and enjoy working with a diverse group of professionals from varied backgrounds.
  • You have enough experience to have developed opinions about things like documentation, scope creep, and client communication.
  • You don't feel challenged working with the same client or project day in and day out, and want fresh problems to explore.
  • You pay attention to details, and rarely need to be told anything twice. 
  • You love learning new things but you don't automatically assume new == better.
  • You have strong prioritization skills, and rarely miss the forest because you're too focused on the trees. 
  • You focus on solutions, not problems, and approach problem-solving from a creative, detail-focused position.
  • You're motivated to help create the best software you can!
