Senior Digital Project Manager

How things look today

Recently established in Geneva, Valtech Switzerland is a young and entrepreneurial organization servicing prominent brands across Switzerland already. We’re part of the Valtech Group spanning 5 continents with 40+ offices and 2.500+ digital natives around the world – Paris, Munich, New York, Singapore, Buenos Aires - just to name a few. We are now looking for new talents to support the growth of our Swiss organization, and to enable the acquisition and nurturing of new clients.

To this end, we are looking for an experienced project manager.

The candidate

As a project manager, you are responsible – along with your multidisciplinary team – for managing projects successfully. You are the contact person for the client and you supervise your team. You communicate with developers, marketers, designers and business analysts about process as well as content. You are naturally accurate and communicate clearly. You safeguard quality, budget and planning. You ensure everyone does what has been agreed, while also being able to respond flexibly to the unexpected. You take account of differing interests, but never lose sight of the desired result.

What will you be doing as a Senior Digital Project Manager?

  • You are responsible for the daily operational management of scrum teams at the office, at partners and/ or at the client
  • You monitor, administer and report on the project and manage the budget for the client
  • You create the project plan and ensure the availability of people and resources
  • You make and monitor agreements with third parties to safeguard the planning or adjust it if necessary
  • You facilitate the team so that they can do their work optimally, and you keep an eye on the team dynamics

What are we looking for in a Senior Digital Project Manager?

Obviously, you need to know how to prepare and manage a project plan. The same goes for safeguarding and adjusting budgets. You have 5+ year experience with commercial projects involving external clients working on both a fixed price and actual-cost basis. You have excellent written and verbal communication skills in German and English. French is a plus.

In addition, we are also looking for the following:

  • You have an affinity for technology and creation
  • You have experience with Agile/scrum projects and are familiar with other methodologies
  • You are motivated to contribute to the growth of a small locally established organization working with international colleagues based in Europe and near shore locations

At Valtech, we believe in an integrated working partnership with our clients. We usually do this at our office, but occasionally we work at the client’s place or at one of our other locations. This requires flexibility and gives you the opportunity to broaden your network.

How we work

We’re consultants…

with an agency mindset. We believe in working together, and that the best results come when we pool our knowledge and brainstorm the right solution for our customers.

We’re passionate…

about all things digital. Our ambition is to be the leading provider of digital solutions. Our customers look to us to help them succeed in the digital landscape. We deliver work that makes them the digital leaders in their industries, based on a thorough understanding of their business and a close collaboration with their employees.

We talk to each other.

We don’t believe in silos. We work across disciplines, with account managers, developers and creatives sitting side-by-side, pooling their collective wisdom in order to come up with the best solution for our clients.

We’re agile...

As in we follow the methodology in our projects and in the way we work with each other and our clients. 

We’re international.

We’re local and global. We’re part of the global Valtech Group, spanning 5 continents with 40+ offices around the world – London, New York, Singapore, Buenos Aires - just to name a few. We are innovators, design thinkers, marketers, creatives and developers, who all create unprecedented success for our Global 500 clients while optimizing time-to-market and return on investment.

As part of a global organization we have multi-cultural local environments that are both open and collaborative, offering unmatched opportunities for personal and professional development – locally as well as globally.

We interact across countries, disciplines, trades, roles and teams. We are consultants before anything else and take ownership of our own work, clients and careers.

We provide everyone with freedom and sky-high opportunities - in return, we expect an equally high degree of accountability and dedication.

As part of our general transparent approach, we like to deal with salary upfront. So when you apply, let us know what you expect.
