About Byte9

We specialise in feature-rich content management and ecommerce products and bespoke systems development in LAMP and Ruby on Rails.  Currently we are producing a unique, powerful set of content semantic analysis, media monitoring and editorial assistance tools.  

Our clients range from start-ups to blue chips but our focus is on providing excellent solutions that fulfil our clients’ and system stakeholders’ evolving business requirements 

We use a test driven, iterative approach to development and have mature systems and agile methodology in place.

 

Position summary

With several exciting projects lined up and an exiting product roadmap we need a commercially experienced project manager with a minimum of two years experience of agile web (application) development.

As an agile project manager your goal will be to balance the demands of budget, time and resource, while keeping both clients and the development team happy. You will be the conduit between the business requirements that we receive and the systems that the developers build.

You will help guide the further development and implementation of the road-map for our leading  Blaze development framework and the content management, ecommerce and bespoke tools that we develop within that. You will be working with a smart and experienced  development, UI design and system administration team within a robust testing and deployment setup.  A keen, analytic mind is a must as well as the ability to challenge the status quo and push the team and our products forward.

Diligence in testing and a good eye for the usability and ergonomics of a system will be an advantage. We will also expect you to actively input ideas on the enhancement of our process and methodologies, and on our existing technologies.

In return, we offer a leading salary, the chance to work on a variety of innovative projects, using advanced process, tools and techniques within a strong, innovative team.
