We are looking for a detail oriented Project Manager to manage organization of key client projects and accomplishes project objectives by planning and evaluating project activities.
At Form.io, we build the world’s best combined form platform anywhere. But we’re even prouder of the fact that we’re a platform that serves developers, and we’re helping them build their own complex business process applications that require extensive forms and APIs to support them. No other platform provides developers the tools that we provide them with the ability to customize them the way they want.
We are growing rapidly, and have more work and opportunities than we have people to accomplish them. That’s where you come in!
If you’re the one we’re looking for, you have extensive experience with managing projects and have delivered projects on time, on budget and to the satisfaction of clients. You can walk the delicate tightrope of clients vs developers and cultivate the maximum output from both. This isn’t your first rodeo. You’ve got 5 or more years of experience, and can point to multiple projects that you’ve managed that have successfully shipped and are still in use.
That’s a really quick intro of what we are looking for but first you need to know what it is like working for us.
We’re a rapidly growing company that provides our customers a powerful and unique form platform designed specifically for developers! We have something that no-one else has, and we’ve achieved significant traction in the market and adoption by enterprises and governments all over the world, ranging from startups, SMBs, to large enterprises, who operate in a wide range of business verticals including healthcare, education, government agencies, insurance, banking and financial services, legal, and many others. We have been cash flow positive for years, and are continuing to grow our MRR revenue without needing to search for new investment capital.
We love building tools that make data collection and management easier for developers building web apps. As part of that we’ve developed tons of front end and back end components and tools in many frameworks and technologies.
We’re a group of dedicated and talented people - the kind you’d be excited to work with. Here’s what that looks like.
Live where you want - We’re mostly located in the Dallas area but we do have very productive members of our team elsewhere. We all work from home a portion of the time, so we’re very good at using tools that enable remote work.
No crazy hours - We’re a startup but we realize that overworking our developers doesn’t make the process faster or better. We’re more interested in you developing great code and solving problems than working crazy hours.
We’re all adults - There’s no need to punch a clock, or ask for permission to take off early one afternoon to go see the doctor. We look at what you’re accomplishing, not how long you sit in front of a computer.
World class tools - We want you firing on all cylinders so we’ll set you up with a shiny new computer (probably a mac) and replace it every three years.
Solve important problems - We’re constantly doing hard things that are fun and helping companies work. We spend a lot of time designing new systems and solutioning problems for our customers.
Learn new things - We’re built on latest generation technology and are always on the lookout for what’s new. Be prepared to constantly be learning promising new technologies and figuring out how they can make our company better.
Testing is not a dirty word - We believe in automated testing. Bug fixes as well as new features should come with automated tests to ensure they work and make sure they don’t break in the future.
