How will the companies be split among IT Project managers, based on the industry/size/…? What types of companies will I be working with?
As an IT Project manager, you will be working with a set of software companies, but we do no clear splits based on Companies or verticals. Typically we do clear split based on processes. That's one of the things that makes our company different than most companies, where you get a region, or you get a customer, or you get vertical. In this role, your primary responsibility will be a process, and you will own that whole process that will also cover companies typically across multiple regions, multiple languages, various verticals. So, there won't be a clear split, to get a company or a set of companies; but a clear objective of continuously improving a process or a set of professional services processes.
Why are you not hiring internally? Are there any internal issues (cultural, political, etc.)?
We are hiring internally. If we have top performers of professional services qualified for the position, we would have them apply on Crossover and go through the interviewing process. When we recruit for the IT Project Manager, we are comparing all candidates. It's an equal opportunity: external people can apply, as well as, internal candidates. We are making merit-based objective decisions about whom we think is going to be the best fit for this role.
Is there any travel required for the position?
There is some, but minor, once or maximum twice a year. So, compared to typical companies, you can say it is zero travel. Mainly, because we’re the first fully remote organization and we travel for customer visits, but we do not travel or relocate for internal purposes.
Why is there so much growth so fast, what does this involve?
It involves the owner's appetite for growth. These Companies also believe that the organizational model which is in place allows for economies of scale the bigger they grow. Therefore with growth, the cost per unit of output will decrease.
What challenges will you face as an IT Project Manager?
You must be flexible to handle challenges with a company that is facing an incredible growth and several internal changes. You will do this by collaborating with different PS teams and gather qualified information for the GAP analysis.
