Job Description
  • Location: United States, Michigan

Make your mark. Plante Moran's technology services team has been awarded Insider Pro and Computerworld's "100 Best Places to Work in IT" for five consecutive years. We are also previous recipients of the InformationWeek IT Excellence award and the CIO 100 award. If you're seeking professional growth, like being innovative and challenged, and have a desire to work on impactful business technology solutions, we want to hear from you!

What does diversity, equity, and inclusion mean to Plante Moran? It means that all staff members have equitable and fair opportunities to succeed, in an inclusive environment, with their individual, unique identities.

Plante Moran enjoys a "Workplace for Your Day" model which, simply put, means no one knows the best place for you to physically work better than you. Our staff choose their work location based on their individual day's needs, and gives them the flexibility they need when they need it. If staff need to go into the office to collaborate, the space is there, and if they have a day where they need to focus alone, then staying home works just fine, too.

Do you love leading agile teams of application developers, analysts, and business and technology experts to design and build modern cloud based, innovative solutions? Does the idea of doing this in an award-winning culture of caring and collaboration excite you? As a natural leader, your ability in agile project management and innovative solution delivery will help us leverage cutting edge platforms and technology in order to build the future of the firm.

  • Project manage strategic solution delivery initiatives, to include agile planning, scheduling, scope management, risk management, issue management, financial and resource management, and change management.
  • Lead agile technology and business teams through early formation and project definition phases, through design, build, and implementation.
  • Contribute to evolving our agile project management methodologies, and DevOps operating models across the firm.
  • Build and manage relationships at various levels across the firm; to gather consensus, to drive alignment, to influence outcomes, and to resolve competing priorities.

The qualifications.

  • Bachelor's degree in Business, Information Systems, Finance/Accounting, or related degree required.
  • 5-6 years experience and demonstrated success in Project Management required; PMI or similar certification is a plus.
  • Experience in Product Management a plus.
  • A self-starter who owns the outcomes of work; follows through on commitments; and sees things through to completion.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects and project team size, and other responsibilities simultaneously.
  • Background in Software Engineering, Agile SDLC, or Data Analytics/BI solution delivery
  • Ensure appropriate standards (i.e. project methodology, SDLC, solution delivery, and operational norms) are followed, as well as follow and improve standard PMO processes.
  • Ability to manage projects of moderate to high complexity.
  • Experience in implementing solutions with resources spread across geographically, including onshore/nearshore/offshore.
  • Effective presentation skills and stakeholder management.
  • Proven analytical and problem-solving abilities.
  • Strong interpersonal and oral communication skills.
  • Skilled at working within a team-oriented, collaborative environment.
  • Ability to present ideas and solutions in business-friendly and user-friendly language
  • This position may require some local, national, and occasional international travel.
