Digital / Software Project Manager – VizSweet (CLOSED)

Remote working, freelance day-rate £neg

We’re very excited to be close to beta-launching our high-end, highly-original data-visualisation software, VizSweet after two years of development.

It’s sweet!

We’re looking for an experienced, passionate and hyper-organised project manager with experience of bringing digital or software projects to life.

That person will help us streamline our development process as we move towards release. And liaise with our intimate group of clients and beta-testers as we slowly grow our userbase.

You will work directly with creative director David McCandless and a small, agile remote development team in a GMT timezone.

We’re looking for someone imaginative and energetic to dive straight into our collaborative team, suggesting ideas and features, be a hands-on ‘player-coach’, testing, directing, polishing.

In return, you get to be part of shaping an amazing, innovative tool at its inception and be part of a small but growing international creative business.
