Contract Project Manager - Software Development | 6 Month Contract
Southampton | Competitive Salary Rate + Benefits

Due to the growth of the business we need a brilliant Software Development Project Manager to successfully deliver and implement a specific, bespoke and business critical piece of software which is used throughout the agency. You’ll have proven experience identifying and resolving project issues as well as a good experience of UAT to ensure all software requirements are tested and functioning correctly before deployment. This role will provide the consistency and experience needed to ensure successful implementation of the software development process.

Working with a number of clients, the successful candidate will need to be very experienced and skilled at leading the project team to deliver the project within time, resource and budget constraints. They will need to ensure the final software product fulfils all the project objectives and integrate the software within a customer facing environment ensuring minimal downtime and disruption.

You’ll have a strong knowledge and understanding of business needs with the ability to establish/maintain high level of customer trust and confidence.

Applicants will also need to be familiar with project management methodologies and experienced at applying them. They will need to have worked in an agency, be detailed, delivery focussed and skilled at juggling priorities. A formal project management qualification would definitely be an advantage although a client focussed; flexible approach will be just as important.

The agency

Five By Five is a Launch Marketing agency – which simply means we help brands launch and re-launch more successfully than the business-as-usual approach traditionally taken. We understand that launches are more challenging projects that require a more aligned, more focused process, because, sadly 61% of launches fail in the first two years!

We’re an independent agency with a huge ambition (one that is made credible by the fact that the people who run the agency, own it too). Our mission is to become the UK’s No.1 Independent Agency.

With offices in LA, Sydney and London we are still enviously centred in Southampton - which may disappoint anyone who is still naïve to the real power of being an authentic agency outside the London bubble. We’re really excited to invite self-motivated and passionate marketers like you to join us!

Our values:

+ Go big
+ Always learning
+ Pull together

If you have an exceptional eye for detail and a passion for delivering quality work, you'll fit right into the team here. The quality bar is high, very high - but why would you want to work somewhere it isn't?
