Freelance Project Manager

Are you an experienced Project Manager and have contributed your expertise as a professional freelancer to a variety of projects? Then maybe we might be a good fit as we are looking for talented professionals to extend our network of freelancers.

Start: We currently have no vacancy, but are always interested in extending our network of freelancers. Start according to mutual agreement.

Divio offers world-class services and tools that empower agencies, developers and organisations to build highly valuable and sustainable online presences and experiences. Launched in 2001, the company is today located in Zürich and has offices in Kiev (UA), New York (USA) and Cardiff (UK).

Divio has placed Django software in the hands of thousands of users across the world, through the open-source django CMS and Aldryn Cloud platform. With over 70’000 monthly downloads, django CMS has grown to be the leading, Python based open-source Content Management System, and Aldryn Cloud is the tool of choice for many web agencies around the world working with Django.

Our company’s success is built on open-source software, and we have always contributed back to the open-source projects we rely on by supporting their inspiring communities.

Is it your dream to collaborate with a team of talented people, working on new ideas and approaches for cloud-based services and web products, in a fast-paced environment? Wonderful!

Meaningful, satisfying work

You are the important link between our clients and the development team and you’ll be in contact with our clients and team everyday. As a freelance project manager you coordinate the project team, determine cost estimates and project plans, you take care of the entire communication with all involved parties and you control and monitor progress vis-à-vis our clients and internally. Same as for any project manager you’ll also have to meet timelines and budgets. We like to engage in a long-term work relationship with our freelancers which can lead to several shorter assignments or to assignments for a longer period of time. Of course, this always depends on the projects we need additional resources for and the skills required. Therefore, you might be asked to work on a complex web application, on a tailor built solution or even to work with us on our own software products. Together with our team you’ll be involved in concept, development and the release of cutting edge web projects and you’ll help our team in achieving the goals.

What you'll need to join us

Above all, you need to be strongly motivated and to care about what we do. You’ll need to be able to be a part of our resourceful and fast-working team, and able to contribute to our ambitious aims. Further we require:

  • Proven experience as a project manager in the development of web services and applications
  • Great organisational and planning skills (experience and certifications IPMA or SCRUM a plus), very accurate and structured approach to problem solving
  • The ability to adapt to the in-house reporting, budgeting and task tracking standards
  • Technical and conceptual understanding of Internet technologies and a passion for the benefits they bring
  • The ability to solve complex customer concerns and issues, and a high degree of empathy to assess the needs of stakeholders and their situation correctly and quickly.
  • The ability to keep track of many subjects at the same time, work independently, and remain calm and collected under pressure
  • Confident, clear and engaging written and oral communication and presentation skills.
  • Being a motivator, able to deliver great results in a deadline driven environment and a team player with extremely high demands regarding the quality of the work delivered
  • Proactive communication as well as experience in working in intercultural and geographically dispersed teams
  • Discreet and professional in every situation
  • Strong verbal and written skills in English (negotiation level). Good verbal and written skills in German are a plus.
