In the position of IT Project Manager within EDIA you can really impact teaching and learning through our innovative software. EDIA has built very strong long-term relationships over time, with significant parties within higher education, publishers, governments and e-healthcare. We work to improve their learning management systems, provide for text analysis tools, content management and delivery systems. Therefore, in this role our clients are your most important stakeholders.
Currently, we will need to distinguish a project-driven process compared to a product-driven process within EDIA. We have the ambition to shift all of our work towards product-driven development over time.
ABOUT THE JOB
You will have a strong liaising role between our (internal) clients, our sales department, your fellow project managers and currently four software development teams. Our development process is based on Agile/Scrum, which means you will be responsible for backlog refinement of every two-weeks’ sprint. You empower our development teams and motivate them to bring their A-game when it comes down to our customer’s products.
Your work and responsibilities contain:
- Project Management
- Product Management and Product Ownership
- Account Management
- Delivery Management
- Business Analysis
As the significant part of our current customers are of Dutch origin and operate on the local market, it is highly desirable that your proficiency of the Dutch language, is at native or bilingual level. In addition, a highly professional level of English is a big plus, as our business is growing more and more internationally. Depending on the level of expertise and experience you bring along, this position is indicated between €45k - €58k on annual base. On top of that, we have a generous pension plan, educational assistance program and we provide for a fresh and healthy lunch every day!
What is it like to work at EDIA
We are a flat and lively organization, a growing scale-up with over thirteen years of experience, but with a start-up mentality. Our philosophy is ‘Finding simple solutions to complex problems’. We offer a great place to work, in a beautiful historic mansion with a large green garden in the backyard. Our office is located in the Vondelpark area, near the Rijksmuseum and just a 2 minute walk from Leidseplein, Amsterdam.
There is a personal atmosphere at EDIA - relaxation and sociability are found to be just as important as hard work. Every day we enjoy lunch together in the cozy basement. During summer, we regularly hangout after work, light the barbecue and kick back over a beer or a glass of wine. You will get to work with the latest technologies and experience a very open culture where we are really proud of what we do.
At EDIA we encourage our employers to proactively present their own ideas and initiatives. We love to see our employees grow, and therefore always invest in growth, either by intensive training on the job, or by giving room for (online) courses and training, attending relevant meetups, anything that suits you well. By doing so, we believe we offer many opportunities for growth, in order for you to take following steps in your career.
