We focus on business automatization and digitization processes of banking,  payments, asset and wealth management, risk & compliance. Profound knowledge of signal processing, image recognition and artificial intelligence is the key to help improve enterprise performance and simplify administrative processes in the financial cycles of our clients.

As we have already built a team of 25+ brilliant and talented experts, it is time to step forward and get focused on delivery and execution - a reason for hiring a “Technical Project Manager” to take the full-cycle responsibility for team functionality and productiveness.

Job responsibilities

1. Implement Agile project management methodology

Both Finances and IT are rapidly changing and developing fields.

  • research and dig deep into our organizational and technical specifications to adapt best practices and the right methodology of the project management.

2. Enhance teamwork and collaboration

While each of our team-member is differently creative, communicative and inclined towards problem solution, all of them have the same type of dedication and professionalism with 10+ years’ of experience under their belts. When team is moving fast in startups like us, teamwork is the effective force which holds it together. This means your second objective is to enhance collaboration.

Typical tasks here include:

  • facilitate discussion, decision making, and conflict resolution being focused on values of openness, honesty and respect,
  • build a trusting and safe environment where problems can be raised without fear of blame or being judged,
  • provide all support to management to achieve smooth managing process.
