Agile Delivery Lead
Remote, Ontario, Canada

Description

We're looking for a progressive, highly organized individual who can grapple with the details without losing sight of the big picture as an Agile Delivery Lead. An individual who has experience with digital marketing projects, understands technology, and always keeps our clients' mission, goals and deadlines first and foremost. You're a leader who can set priorities, adapt to change and crunch budgets.

You build strong client relationships, communicating efficiently and elegantly to make sound decisions that make their businesses better. And you know how to manage both up and down in an organization to get the decisions, support, deliverables and results you need on time and under budget.

You'll work directly with our company's senior strategists, designers and developers as well as our diverse range of clients. Crafting proposals, mapping out projects, drafting budgets and setting timelines. You'll follow projects as they unfold, identifying and resolving bottlenecks, negotiating and working with subcontractors, maintaining ongoing contact with our clients and keeping senior staff apprised of the project's progress. You'll keep projects flowing, on course, on purpose, and know exactly where the money is being spent and why. Your comprehensive documentation of your work will be key to ensuring we learn from every project, continually improving value to clients.

Doing your job well will affect more than just deadlines and budgets. It will mean every member of the team knows their efforts are having the maximum impact and delivering value to our clients and Thrillworks.
