This company is dedicated to quality software engineering, building new and exciting software for their clients and themselves.

Due to their continued growth, they have a brand new opportunity for a Software Project Manager to join their team based in the Media Centre in Huddersfield City Centre.

This is a great opportunity for a talented Project Manager who is looking for a genuinely rewarding career helping them to build the next generation of software systems.

Responsibilities:
- Oversee multiple software development projects with 3-4 teams of developers
- Collaborate with software developers, clients and software architects to plan, design and test, and maintain existing and new applications.
- Ensure that all projects are delivered on-time, within scope and within budget
- Translate customer requirements and user stories into a set of clear objectives for the development team.
- Create and maintain project documentation - requirements documents, project plans, software and release roadmaps.
- Maintain high standards of software quality within the team by establishing good practices and habits.
- Backlog management and reporting to both client and development team
- Conduct regular internal meetings (discovery, implementation and closure, stand-ups, release planning, sprint planning).

- A competitive salary, with regular reviews
- Pension
- Pizza Tuesdays (free lunch and a get together every week)
- Breakfast Fridays (Free breakfast every week)

Essential Skills
- You're a bit of a geek who loves new tech. You love to dig around software and consider yourself a "super-user", always trying to figure out how to make it best work for you.
- You're incredibly organised and detail orientated. When you see two people emailing documents back and forth you can't help yourself from offering an online solution.

You don't need to have a degree in computer science, or years managing expensive enterprise software rollouts.

They are not looking for a Project Manager who wears a suit to work.

They are looking for somebody who is smart, quick, hard-working and determined to get the job done.

Desirable Skills
- 3+ years' experience managing software development projects.
- Proven experience of delivering business and technical projects
- MSP, PMP, PRINCE II or Agile certification is a plus
