About you

You are not afraid of projects worth several tons and prefer to work with large organizations. Together with your team you will set up complex projects in SCRUM processes but you also have ownership over what is delivered and the ongoing development. Collaborating with all kinds of disciplines around you. You like that, even if their interests differ from yours.

You don't just work for a customer but enjoy building long-term relationships with them. From your position you not only facilitate the projects but you also see sales opportunities and act on them together with our Commercial Director. At Lab Digital, the role of project manager is from A to Z, from opportunity to bid, to project, billing and ongoing development.

In addition, it is great if you have a well-founded opinion about (digital) design, if you understand that Java is something essentially different than Javascript, and if you can empathise with the strategic ambitions of a client.

What will your day look like?

Every day is different and far from boring, but here is an outline of what a day can look like.

🕘 8:30 - Stand-up
Daily standup with the team via MS Teams. You ensure that the team is focused, can start the day well and also keep an eye on the end of the sprint. You agree in advance who will prepare which parts of the demo presentation.

🕚 11:00 - Working on Pitch
Together with our Commercial Director, you work on an RFP that has to be delivered the same week. You have a strong vision in the right approach for this project and have worked this out in a phasing with corresponding milestones and underlying budget. In doing so, you make a substantive contribution to the proposal for the client and you also know how to articulate this well in the rehearsal presentation.

🕐 13:00 - Progress meeting
You and your team are in the final phase of a project and, together with the customer and other suppliers involved, you are working towards the go-live. Together with the architect and lead developer, you have taken control and drawn up a go-live plan, which is now being coordinated with all the parties involved to ensure a flawless go-live. The focus can then quickly shift to celebrating success, instead of extinguishing fires.

🕝 14:30 - Invoicing
The end of the month is approaching, so you prepare the hour reports and invoices. Thanks to your tight control of the budget and planning, there are no special circumstances. However, you do start the discussion with the customer about the support agreement after go-live and how you envisage this.

🕓 16:00 - Day's closing.
You get a last-minute call from the Product Owner but because of your long-standing relationship, he knows his questions are in good hands with you. You think about the update you're going to give in the project management meeting tomorrow and at 5pm you open a glass of wine (or beer) 🍷
