We’re looking for an experienced Project Manager to join our growing UK team.

Have you seen street performers? Watched them eat flames AND keep the crowd safe and entertained. All the time you were thinking: "Fire? You should try Project Management in a tech company - now that’s tricky!"

Then, we would love to meet you and introduce you to our projects! Join us and lead technical teams to meet our deadlines. Help deliver some of the best software services in our industry and build our company reputation through your work. Handle tricky stake holder relationships and expectations for the team. Develop your interest in line management. Red is already known for our great tech skills - join us as we forge our reputation with management skills too.

What you’ll need to bring:

  • Experience running a number of software projects in all stages of life-cycle. In order to be able to satisfy the following requirements, we anticipate the candidate is likely to have at least 3 years' such experience already
  • Experience of handling external clients or internal stakeholders when delivering projects
  • Experience with using modern techniques for software project management (Kanban, backlog, retrospectives, agile, SCRUM, daily stand-ups etc.)
  • Be proficient using technical terminology to communicate high level technical information with your team and external stakeholders - even if you don't understand the lower-level detail
  • Proven ability to navigate tricky waters and lead a team to success in your project.
  • An interest in leading others and taking on formal line management responsibilities.

What we'll give you in return:

  • A competitive salary that grows with your career
  • A twice-yearly company bonus scheme
  • Opportunities to train, develop and grow your career
  • 25 days' holiday as standard, rising an extra day every year
  • Personal medical cover, with the option to upgrade and cover your family
  • A flexible and risk-averse approach to remote work
  • Access to the "Headspace" mindfulness app

Our recruitment process:

We believe in moving fast and keeping things simple.

Once you submit your CV, we'll send you a short online form asking you to confirm a couple of details. Your application then goes directly to the Hiring Manager to review. We'll always try to come back to you within a few days.

We'll usually do a short first stage telephone interview. If that goes well, we'll want to set up a longer conversation to find out more. Where possible, we'll do a face-to-face interview in our offices, so that you can get a better feel for the company and your team. However, we understand the challenges of COVID19 and have adapted our business to be completely flexible around the current situation. This means that we may do some, or all, of the interview process over video using Microsoft Teams, Skype, or GoToMeeting.

However we do it, we want you to leave us with a real feel for the role and a sense of what it's like to work with us, so we're happy to spend some quality time to answer all of your questions.

So what are you waiting for? If this sounds like the challenge you’ve been looking for, just click apply to send us your details and we’ll be in touch really soon.
