At Aware Group, we have a team of awesome people who deliver AI services and solutions to some of the largest businesses across New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region.
Our team are highly intelligent and extremely passionate about delivering projects that hold high value to our customers. We’re an oddly mixed bunch of conservative and out-there personalities that gel really well, while supporting each other to deliver well-thought-out solutions. We have cool partners that bring us awesome projects, meaning that every day is different.
We’re growing so much at the office that we’re opening a new office in Wellington! You’d be joining our newly established Wellington team, and you’d start your journey at Aware with a 2-week long induction in Hamilton to get to meet our team and learn about how we work.
We’re expecting to have this team start on the 4th of October, in time to be inducted and start in our brand-spanking-new office when it opens on Monday 18 October 2021.
Although physically separate, this role will work as a part of our Project Services team alongside other Project Managers predominantly based in Hamilton. We’re also looking to have 4 Engineers and a member of our Commercial (sales) team based from the Wellington Office to start with.
This opportunity is specifically for an experienced Project Manager to join the team who has strong experience managing software projects (especially in emerging technology). This person will take on a leadership role of the Wellington office, ensuring our Engineers are well integrated with the wider Development Services team and working closely with the Director of Project Services to proactively identify and overcome any people or project challenges that arise through this exciting growth.
Your project team will vary from project to project and may include any member of the Development Services team (regardless of whether they’re located in Hamilton or Wellington). As such, in this role you’ll need to be comfortable working remotely with team members to set expectations and ensure that project deliverables and deadlines are met.
At Aware Group, being a Senior Project Manager means being comfortable thinking on your feet, leading technical team members to success while working directly with clients and internal team members to ensure expectations are aligned. You’ll have enough experience to overcome complex project challenges in a proactive and solution focused manner as well as effectively prioritising workload across the wider development team.
We have a focus on providing quality to our clients, so the ability to proactively identify and manage project risks, as well as to escalate to the Director of Project Services the flow on implications of project risks is imperative.
Aware has a close partnership with Microsoft in delivering demonstrations both for existing and upcoming technologies; in this role you will learn new frameworks and communicate on a technical level with Microsoft product teams.
As this role will involve consulting directly with customers and partners, some international and domestic travel may be requested from time to time (once it’s safe to again).
Note that the successful applicant will be required to undergo background checks (reference & criminal record) prior to commencement of employment.
