Overview

“Surround yourself with people on the same mission as you”

 

This isn’t lip service for us. At Dealer-FX we’re focused on our mission and want to bring top talent with us to the winners circle.  We don’t just offer JOBs, we offer OPPORTUNITY, where our people grow, learn and contribute across many levels.

 

Now, we’re looking for experienced Project Managers to join our award winning team. In this role, you’ll manage end-to-end projects in our tech org, working with the best and brightest technical talent who are driven by pigheaded discipline and quality; only the best will do for us. Our project managers are accountable to manage the triple constraint and achieve quality standards in the overall delivery of projects. They draw from their expertise to apply Agile (Scrum Master), System Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and Project Management methodologies in a flexible and practical manner.

 

Wondering if this is you? Here are some key indicators that make a great Project Manager at Dealer-FX:

  • You’re accountable -- we don’t play the blame game here and leaders take responsibility
  • You can shift priorities (cost, scope, schedules) and handle full cycle for projects, from medium to large size
  • You are an exceptional communicator and are highly organized (people like working with you and your reputation for accuracy precedes you)
  • Software projects drive your natural curiosity and working with both internal and external stakeholders come naturally to you
  • You’re proud of your PMP designation (or any other letters that come after your name) but you know it’s more about the work and getting things done that designate a top performer
  • Innovation and Thinking Forward drive your success and you can instill these principles in your own and other teams.
  • You understand, enjoy working in and evangelize Agile methodologies

We work hard and fast; no joke. We are revolutionizing software for automotive dealerships and are disrupting in our space. Deloitte Fast 50TM and Fast 500TM are a few of our accolades and while we love winning awards, it’s all about our people.
