Hello, my company, Scout, is looking for a part-time Project Manager that can help us get our product on track.
When you start a company, especially with little to no manpower other than yourself, you discover a lot about what you're good and not good at. For me, I discovered that my project and time management skills need work. With so many things going on, I decided that having a project manager to help organize and keep things on track would be a smart move.
All that said, I'm in the market for an experienced project manager, particularly one that has experience managing software projects. If you have experience in a startup, that's even better. I'm not looking for a PM that's going to come in and automatically say we should use a particular methodology because that's what everyone else is doing. Rather, I'm looking for a project manager that can understand our product, available resources and strengths and weaknesses to develop a project plan and a corresponding methodology (or none) to maximize our efficiency in order to get our product out the door sooner rather than later. I'd imagine that this would be a part-time engagement that would last for the length of the project, but could go longer depending on how things work out.
A little bit about the company: we're a software as a service product focused on the pet industry. In particular, we're developing business management for pet services companies, with an initial focus on the dog walking and pet sitting industry. Dog walker and pet sitters play an important role in the care of our animals -- the goal of our software is to automate the day to day, so they can get back to spending more time with the animals.
If you're interested in working with a startup, have great organization and management skills, and are a great communicator, I'd love to hear from you. If you happen to be an animal lover, even better :)
