Technical Project Manager

Job role: Technical Project Manager

Main Function

Our Technical Services team provides day-to-day service to over 100+ international finance clients who are all utilising our software to run their financing business. They provide a hosted managed service for approximately one third of our clients, as well as supporting all our clients’ technical teams, running large commercial lending portfolios.

The success of the team is not simply dependent on the speed and quality of our advice and support but also on our ability to implement change / upgrade projects directly with our clients.

As Project Manager you will be the face of the company to our clients as the key HPD representative for their project. You must be prepared to operate a portfolio of technical projects end-to-end which includes assisting the Commercial team to evaluate new opportunities in a timely manner.

For upgrade projects you will also be teaming up with our Business Consultants to assist with the functional aspects required to deliver a successful upgrade as well as our Engineering team providing development support for any required changes to our software alongside the upgrade.

Whilst this is a new role within the Technical Services team we have an established set of project management processes and tooling via our existing Delivery team who are typically responsible for new implementations and business change projects. You will work closely with Delivery to ensure we adopt common project management approaches across the business.
