Project Manager

Join the Growth Story at Envitia

We’re a software and services company on a growth trajectory with 20+ years of experience in delivering world-class location and data software and expertise to customers in the public and private sector.

Following a re-organisation last year, the company had a hugely successful 2018 – all down to an amazing group of people.  We’re now looking to grow and build a team that are hungry for success. We’re creating a culture that is fun, supportive yet challenging, and we’re looking for talented like-minded people to join us on this journey.  We’re also looking for people who are comfortable in challenging the norm so we can get truly diverse thinking when solving problems and not just senior management making decisions – we really believe in empowerment.

What do we do? In short, we solve complex data problems to help our customers make better and faster decisions. We do this through our team of data consultants who undertake cutting edge R&D projects or work with customers to find the best data modelling approach, architecture and standards so they’re able to make use of their data.  Or, through our software products where we enable customers to search for, and then visualise, data so they have great situational awareness and can make better decisions.

About You

You’re not looking for a standard 9-5 role.  You want the best of both worlds: a start-up mentality with disruptive thinking, but with the security of a profitable, larger company, with a solid customer base.

You believe you have the potential to succeed.  You want to push your boundaries but acknowledge that success comes through hard work, a positive attitude, and being surrounded by a great team that refuses to sit back and wait for opportunities to come to them.

You have a software engineering background and have moved into Project Management.  You have excellent customer and communication skills and are invigorated by a fast-paced and “start up” style mentality and culture.

The Role

Our PMs work on a variety of projects across multiple clients.  It’s a varied and fast-paced role that will offer you every opportunity to demonstrate your software engineering expertise, super client and communication skills and pragmatic PM talents.

Whilst you won’t be developing software in this role, you will be working very closely with our inhouse development team:  helping to translate customer expectations and challenging where needed.

Project Management here at Envitia is customer focused.  We’re not wedded to every element of Prince 2 but rather tend to take a flexible and pragmatic approach with enough rigour to ensure that: risks are identified and addressed early; resourcing and budget planning is effective, monitored and managed; and key milestones or CR are well documented and where possible, anticipated.  One thing we’re absolutely committed to is transparency – we never leave our customer in the dark.  Ever.

Key Skills:

  • Experience of software development lifecycle / software engineering background
  • Experience of delivering software projects balancing time, cost and quality
  • Experience project managing teams and motivating teams of engineers and consultants
  • Ability to monitor, analyse and report on performance of all allocated projects
  • Ability to manage, report and identify project risks
  • Ability to manage small and large project budgets to agreed limits
  • Ability to work directly with customers to ensure delivery and identify new opportunities
  • Experience in both waterfall and agile environments

Desirable Skills:

  • Delivery of geospatial or data focused projects
  • Understanding of defence and local government sectors
  • A track record in sub-contractor management
  • Ability to monitor financial health of a project and programme and forecasting
  • APM-P certification or Scrum Master certification
  • Familiarity with the Atlassian suite (Jira, Confluence, BitBucket)
  • Strong familiarity with Microsoft Project and Microsoft Office
  • Encourage and support continuous process improvement and effective change management
  • Whole project lifecycle exposure from bid support through to business benefit realisation

You will also have:

  • Really great communication skills both in spoken and written English
  • Know how to talk to both technical and non-technical people (and translate between both)
  • The ability to work at customer sites around the UK as well as our offices in Horsham

Security Clearance Requirements

Many of our public sector customers require UK Security Clearance as a mandated requirement. You’ll need to provide proof of identity, employment history and right to work in the UK, along with proof of UK residency, for at least five years.

The Benefits:

  • Competitive Pay
  • A great benefits package including medical & life insurance, attractive company pension
  • 25 days holidays, company bonus scheme, & subsidised gym membership
  • Casual work environment with flexible hours – you tell us how you work best including the ability to work from home.

Our culture

Envitia has a valuable mix of people and backgrounds, from the brightest mathematicians and data technologists, to pragmatic program managers and energetic customer partners. Across this group there is a common thread – the need to create a defined outcome with measurable business value combined with a world class experience for our customers.

If you’re looking for a place where you can explore, learn, grow, and experiment in an environment that values you for what you bring, then come and have a chat. Our engineers and data scientists excel at what they do and are at the heart of who we are.

As a company, we’re big enough to make a real difference to our customers but small enough to know each other well, have fun, be flexible, and appreciate what each other brings to the company.
