9d ago

We are looking for a Project Manager to help plan and coordinate the implementation of Internet technology, manage technology related projects, coordinate service requests with other development staff and partners, manage internal projects within the organization and generally do everything necessary to ensure our clients succeed with their web-

based GIS initiatives. Our clients are located all over North America, so occasional travel may be required.

You need to feel comfortable facilitating meetings and leading initiatives with little or no guidance (and occasionally incomplete information).

This position involves constant attention to the big picture of the client or business partner relationship, the client’s project, and ensuring successful execution.

You will be involved in the preparation and delivery of proposals and other presentations.

Please note that we are filling this role to cover a parental leave but there is a very real possibility that it will be converted into a permanent position.
