Join Our Growing Remote Team!

At Green River, Project Managers are critical team members who collaborate with our clients to facilitate information-sharing and decision-making. They excel in eliciting and defining technical requirements, and guide projects through scope, timeline, and budget constraints. They love to create and sustain structure, yet are thoughtful, adaptable, and non-dogmatic in approach. And they deeply understand the processes behind creating and maintaining software solutions.

Green River is a 42 person remote company with a genuine focus on creating "software and analytics for a better world." Founded in 2000, we provide technology solutions to government, nonprofits, and corporations worldwide.

  • Document the scope, effort, and priority of each deliverable for clients.

  • Create development plans and review them with clients.

  • Organize deliverables into releases that align with the development plan.

  • Enter each deliverable in our issue tracking system with sufficient detail for assignment to the development team, including clarity of scope and effort.

  • Track and communicate progress on releases with the client in a manner that reinforces project vision and strategies.

  • Notify clients when deliverables in the development plan cannot meet schedule, scope, or cost constraints, and propose necessary adjustments. 

  • Participate in the testing of all releases to ensure client expectations are met with respect to designs and specifications.

  • Gather and document client feedback on deliverables and collaborate on how best to incorporate feedback into the development plan.

  • Generate reports and present results to both internal and external stakeholders.

  • Foster an effective working environment that seeks to maximize team performance through goal setting and feedback.

 

Requirements (Skills and experience):

  • 3-5 years project management or analyst experience in agile-ish software development environment

  • Strong understanding of web application development 

  • Ability to effectively communicate with both technical and non-technical people

  • Strong organizational, interpersonal, problem-solving, presentation, facilitation, and follow-through skills

  • Demonstrated proficiency in project management techniques, tools, and software

  • Establish clear expectations for teams and provide constructive feedback on contributions

  • Comfort with embracing change and fostering innovation

  • Discretion and ability to handle confidential data appropriately

  • Proficiency in G-Suite, GitHub Projects, Jira, Asana, or Figma is a plus

 

We provide a competitive salary; health, dental, and vision insurance; paid holidays, sick leave, and paid time off. We also offer paid family leave, retirement benefits, remote work allowances, and a variety of additional benefits and services.
