We design and deliver world-class custom software products and solutions for our clients. We are looking for self-driven innovative thinkers who can mentor and lead a team of software product/ project managers. This is NOT a managerial role only. The ideal candidate will be very hands-on and ‘own’ the clients’ projects. This includes listening to the client, doing white-boarding and brainstorming sessions with them, and finally architecting, wire-framing and documenting the most optimal solutions.

8-12 years of work experience required - specifically related to software product design, systems design, business requirements gathering/ documentation and project management - startup experience will be a huge plus. A professional with hands-on experience of ERP/ CRM implementations will also be a good fit. What you need to bring to the table is process and systems oriented thinking and a willingness to roll up your sleeves.
