Senior Project Manager

“What we're seeing is a transition, the beginning of an S curve of growth for the data center industry. Unlike the internet bubble around 2000 – which involved ideas that had yet to generate any revenue – the cloud, with upward of $4 trillion in market cap, is a real business with real opportunities. This isn't a bubble.” – Dave Crowley, Microsoft

With a statement like this, who wouldn't want to ride the wave of datacenter expansion? And we have just the right opportunity for you – don't blink and don't think twice before it disappears! Oh right, we should do the responsible thing and give you details first. Alright, here we go:

Our client provides enterprise-class managed data center services, and they're looking for an experienced Project Manager for their team. They have around 70 datacenters servicing 29 different markets, and we can't disclose their clients – but think about any major industry player from hyperscalers, banks, healthcare and social media platforms, and they're likely in their CRM. It's safe to say it's a very impactful project that you'll have the chance to work on.

You'll be managing projects for internal processes that are tied to other departments and functions, and you'll be a part of the PM Office along with 2 other PMs and a junior PM. Everyone reports to the PMO Director. You will be the main contact for company stakeholders for change initiatives and responsible for aiding the staff throughout the projects.

  • Work with cross-functional teams and build solid business relationships across the organization.
  • Manage conflict that arises from competing priorities across different teams to deliver solutions in a timely manner.
