Technical Project Manager and Business Analyst (remote)

Job description

Make is seeking a full-time Technical Project Manager and Business Analyst (remote) to help define + manage large-scale, custom software experiences. Beyond problem solving and pull requests, it’s important for this person to effectively communicate and have a genuine enthusiasm for creating products and systems!


Our team is passionate about creating world-class software (like this) and we want you to make us even better. If this sounds like it might fit what you’re looking for too, read on, and get in touch.


Manager of One

We rely on everyone at Make to do a lot of self-management and take initiative. People who do this well are ‘managers of one,’ and we strive for everyone to fully embody this principle. That means setting your own direction when one isn't given. Determining what needs to be done, and doing it, without waiting for someone to tell you to. A good way to answer this is be asking which of the following helps you thrive in your work:


    • I thrive when given detailed tasks of what to do, how to do them and when to do them
    • I thrive when given requirements + priorities...and prefer to self-manage my tasks


A Passion For Solving Problems

Our clients have real businesses, real customers, real opportunities and real pain points. We quickly learn their product and internal workings. Our customers view us as trusted advisors and thought leaders. This role materially shapes the products, platforms and features that our award-winning team will produce.

We’re proud to have a portfolio of work that viewed by millions of people every week and that’s been featured 25+ times in the Apple App Store and Google Play. At the end of the day, we view this as our life’s work and not more than our work life.
