Project Manager with Software Development Expertise
This is a career opportunity with the potential growth into lead for SUKAD Project Management Technology Services
SUKAD is embarking on developing a suite of applications for project management.
- The application will be online based with mobile/tablet versions.
- The application will be in English initially but with Arabic versions later.
- The initial set of applications will be for managing a project – idea to closure – based on the SUKAD Way™ Model; The Customizable and Adaptable Methodology for Managing Projects™ (CAM2P™).
The ideal candidate must be:
- Have at least five years’ experience in software/application development in addition to 2 to 5 years’ experience in leading/managing such projects.
- Have skills to deliver workshops and training on project management topics, at least foundational and certification courses.
- Some of the training is not unique to the application – or software development and is expected to be a small part of the job – like 25 to 35% of the time.
The position duties include:
- Work with the CEO on this project; the CEO is the methodology developer and subject matter expert.
- Work with the developer and liaise with them on a regular basis.
- Lead all non-development activities to get ready for operations; these include establishing the IT infrastructure for hosting the application, the website, customer support system and processes, and all other technical aspects.
- Lead the work with business development to establish the marketing and sales strategy for the products, which will be for a global audience.
- Deliver project management workshops as mentioned above (not necessarily linked to the application).
- Train clients on the use of the applications once we go live.
The position is based in Lebanon and would require some travel, at least to deliver training.
The position requires a great deal of dedication and growth opportunities. Successful delivery of this product and achieving project success in term of sales and revenue generation can lead the project manager to lead this technology division (independent company) as a unit of the SUKAD Group.
