Technical Project Manager


Qarik Overview 

 

Qarik Group, LLC is a technology consulting firm focused on combining senior-level expertise and experience to help clients see further and go faster, solving big business problems.


We have a saying at Qarik that sums up our culture: ‘Greatness grows greatness.’ It reflects how we support each other by sharing expertise, experience and opportunity. One person’s insight smooths the way for another to succeed. And it’s not just about supporting each other. It’s as much about how we help our client's businesses thrive. By using what we collectively know and mashing ideas together, breathtaking things happen. Not least of which is how your career’s journey can go further and faster than you ever imagined possible. So, if you have greatness to give, we've got the perfect place to help it grow.

 

About Our Work

 

We work “with” our clients, not "for" them. We embrace agile instead of deliverables and milestones - establish a vision, create theme based roadmap and then execute. We work in the trenches with client's engineers to learn from each other's experiences and capabilities.  We frequently have a stake in their success, ensuring that everyone is aiming towards the same goals.


We check badges and egos at the door and bring incredible people together to achieve great outcomes. This allows people to bring their whole person to contribute to, and be part of the team. You should never feel like you have to be somebody else.

 

Overview of the Role

 

The Technical Project Manager (TPM) is a client-facing role that holds the team together, ensuring everybody understands the direction we are heading and the work we need to complete.


The TPM works closely with lead partners, product managers and engineering leads to understand the vision and roadmap and helps translate and track the execution in epics and stories. During the execution, the TPM is helping drive the agile ceremonies from standups to retros and planning, helping everybody stay accountable.


While we follow Agile processes, we look to you to bring your expertise and creativity to modify the process to meet the needs of the team to best achieve outcomes for our customers.


We work a lot with cloud, data and ML, so having working knowledge of these technologies is helpful.

  • Facilitate design thinking and ideation sessions to extract specific actions and tasks required to achieve strategic outcomes
