Job Summary:

We are seeking a Project Manager to manage the end-to-end software development lifecycle for a project focused on integrating APIs with third-party services. The ideal candidate will have a robust background in software development projects, excellent organizational and leadership skills, and the ability to manage complex stakeholder relationships.

Key Responsibilities:

In this role, you will define project scope, objectives, and deliverables in collaboration with senior management and stakeholders. You will develop detailed project plans, timelines, and milestones to ensure alignment with business goals. Coordinating and leading project meetings, setting agendas, documenting decisions, and tracking action items are essential duties.

As the primary point of contact for internal teams, third-party vendors, and external clients, you will facilitate communication and collaboration between developers, business teams, and other project stakeholders. You will manage expectations and maintain positive relationships with all stakeholders, ensuring timely and effective resolution of issues.

You will lead a cross-functional team of developers, testers, and business subject matter experts. Fostering a collaborative and productive team environment, promoting continuous improvement and innovation, and conducting regular review meetings while mentoring teams to achieve project milestones are key aspects of this role.

You will identify, assess, and mitigate project risks, develop contingency plans as necessary, and monitor project progress to make adjustments as needed, ensuring successful delivery. Compliance with company policies, standards, and regulatory requirements is also crucial.

Overseeing the design, development, and implementation of API integrations with third-party services is a key part of your responsibilities. You will ensure robust testing and quality assurance processes are in place for all integrations and coordinate with external parties to manage dependencies.

Additionally, you will prepare and present regular project status reports to senior management and stakeholders. Maintaining comprehensive project documentation, including requirements, design specifications, and user guides, is a critical part of this role.
