You enjoy leading technical project planning using agile methodologies.   You have experience providing project management and oversight for client projects.  You excel supporting projects to ensure alignment with goals and priorities, on-time tracking and completion, scope and budget adherence, and high quality of deliverables.

WHO WE ARE 

Bitovi helps companies create better software and applications. We’re driven by the desire to provide value - to our clients, to the technology community, and to our incredible team.   

Every day, we design and build a wide variety of high-profile applications built with tests, full docs, and a deployment process in place. We discuss and design architectures, review code, and research new front-end technologies. We talk to our clients directly, guiding them through the process, identifying potential problems and unknowns, and tackling challenges.    

We help one another freely. We keep a Slack channel called ask-help and it’s used constantly. We develop new skills, build better developer tools, and work on new types of projects regularly - and take the time to present at conferences, give trainings, and run meetups. We’re huge devotees of open source, and our community of developers is second to none. 

Our fully remote team consists of about 80 developers and designers located around the US and Canada. We welcome diversity and non-traditional paths into the developer profession - we want the right person, not the right collection of tech keywords.
