Position: Technical Project Manager
C2IT Consulting, Inc. (“C2IT”) is an Indianapolis based technology firm with over 20 years experience in helping organizations achieve more with tech. C2IT designs, builds, and supports data-driven mobile apps, websites, and software solutions. We increase efficiency and accuracy, save our clients time and money, and integrate technology platforms in ways never before imagined.
The Technical Project Manager (“Employee”) will work directly with the President, Operations Manager, and C2IT’s technical teams to ensure projects are well defined and profitable from the get-go. This employee will also create, manage, and communicate with clients and C2IT’s team about key milestones during the course of a project.
This employee will be responsible for managing C2IT’s technical capacity across projects that vary in size, scope, margin, and complexity. This will involve everything from working with the business development team to ensure new business can be brought in efficiently to ensuring that large / complicated projects are delivered on-time and on-budget.
This employee will be responsible for defining project scope, keeping projects within scope, and properly communicating with C2IT teams and clients when projects go out of scope.
This employee will also be responsible for client communication during the course of a project including but not limited to: introductory meetings, assessments and project planning, milestone planning, tracking of progress towards milestones, and a satisfactory delivery of products or services.
C2IT is a rapidly developing and growing business, and there are tremendous opportunities for this role to transition into a long term and vital role of design, management, and leadership within our organization.
As C2IT’s Technical Project Manager, you will be involved in many areas of bringing creative, intuitive, and on-target projects to life for our clients.
C2IT has been building web and desktop applications for over 13 years and is growing quickly in mobile app development as well. Many of the projects we are involved in require custom coding, a creative and responsive user interface, and an intuitive user experience. For this reason we tread carefully when it comes to keeping projects within a known scope, because part of C2IT’s value proposition lies in the flexibility we bring clients as we bring their projects to life.
C2IT provides day-to-day IT services in addition to development projects. The Technical Project Manager will be responsible for ensuring larger IT projects for our clients are on-target and delivered on-time and on-budget. This employee will work with the support team to ensure client needs are being met and that support services are being adequately provided within parameters defined by the agreements we have with clients.
It is important to note that the services C2IT provides are often highly custom. We aren’t just building someone a simple “billboard” website just to share their contact information. The first project is often the gateway to larger opportunities in the future, and your success will rely on your ability to see the bigger picture and long-term perspective of the opportunities we pursue. Sometimes, it is better to allow a small amount of scope creep at the cost of retaining and growing the relationship with a client, while at other times, care must be taken to ensure projects are kept tightly on-scope and on-budget.
At C2IT, you’ll benefit from working with a small but experienced team that will offer support that will greatly enhance your skills and knowledge. You’ll also be on the ground floor of a growing team, and opportunities to share your perspective will abound, as will advancement opportunities with our joint success.
We want to find someone who is keen to contribute ideas and who loves finding interesting and brilliant solutions to problems.
The projects we are a part of span a wide variety of platforms – web, desktop, and mobile to name a few, so a willingness and excitement to explore new ways to use what we can do to help others is paramount to all of our success.
