We’d prefer at least a couple of years experience under your belt, but we’ll also pay attention to great attitude and relevant background. Primarily, you’ll thrive on responsibility where technology, people and commercials intersect and your passion for tech will come through as you help Kiwi organisations thrive in a digitally transforming world.

You have a pragmatic lens in applying your expertise to manage the delivery of multiple projects, ensuring a customer-first mindset. You can adopt and lead agile but also understand where other methodologies would work best.


What you'll be doing:

  • Managing expectations around scope, timelines, budget, risk and issue management, and change management
  • Communicating regularly with a wide range of audiences such as internal and external stakeholders, end users, Creatives, Technical Leads and Developers

  • Facilitating collaborative use of our project management platform.
  • Working with a community of Project Managers to continually improve our delivery methodology

What you bring:

  • Experience in managing web projects
  • A teaming mindset - you can demonstrate you work well with others
  • Ability to build relationships of trust and respect with colleagues and customers
  • Highly organised with good judgement in understanding and setting priorities
  • Knowledge and application of various methodologies such as Agile, Waterfall, Lean
  • Strong understanding of web and digital.

Things that will set you apart:

  • Experience leading workshops and provide Business Analyst expertise if required
  • Demonstrated ability to absorb and contribute to technical documentation
  • Insatiable curiosity and a desire to know the “why”
  • The drive and perseverance to help teams find a way to solve problems, get projects over the line, and to keep striving for ‘better’


What's in it for you?

  • Great work - helping customers in key industries solve interesting problems with digital technologies
  • Continuous learning in a lean and agile environment
  • Friendly, collaborative people and culture
  • A generously stocked kitchen
  • A healthy lifestyle allowance
  • An innovative leave scheme allowing you to manage your 30 days of leave in a way that suits you

If this sounds like you, even if you don’t meet 100% of the traits outlined above, we'd love to hear from you. Tell us why you’d be a great fit for this role.
