\"Possibly the greatest city on Earth...\"

... Ok, well that's a quote from Ron Burgundy which has nothing to do with Sheffield, but in my eyes you certainly wouldn't be too far off.

This exciting Indie developer are right in the heart of one of the UK's friendliest and fastest growing cities and are working Exclusively with Aardvark Swift.

Having recently begun working on an uber-cool cloud based, multi-platform project with an educational slant, they are looking to recruit an experienced Project Manager with a \"can do\" attitude to lead their team.

Client liaison at a high level will be required, so the successful candidate will need to document and specify client requirements, turn them into a functional specification and ensure delivery.

What you'll need to be considered for the gig:
? A proven track record of leading multi-discipline teams of 20+ on fast delivery projects
? A focus on delivery and the ability to demonstrate a history of very effective prioritisation, organisation, and process improvement.
? Great stakeholder management and communication skills with the ability & gravitas to act as the studio ambassador to 3rd-party clients and business partners.
? A \"can-do\" attitude towards product delivery
? The ability to work fast and absorb pressure whilst still delivering and maintaining a tactful style
? Proficiency in the use of PM tools like MS Project, JIRA, Hansoft or Greenhopper

Added bonuses are...
? Its not essential that candidates have games industry experience but some knowledge of 3d animation pipelines and the mobile delivery platforms is required.
? Certified Scrum Master / PRINCE 2 accreditation
? An understanding of cloud based application infrastructure would be also be helpful
