    Sr. IT/Software Development (Project) Management

    Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

    - Sr. QA Engineer - Sr. Project / Program Manager / Scrum Master - Sr. Business Consultant After years of experience in Management in both the Software Development and IT industry, I want to expand my horizon at my level of expertise. I'm more geared towards management of technical staff and/or projects. In this setting I have experience in a lot of different specialties (QA, Customer Support, Web Development, Development, IT, Production, Client Management, and others). I'm comfortable in a lot of environments, but I like to be able to use my own management style that is more aimed in managing through positive experiences, openness and coaching and training. I'm definitely not a supporter/believer of managing with an iron fist. My main aim is always to create a positive and productive environment in which people can feel happy and flourish, as opposed to being stressed and strained. I learn quickly and I'm flexible and precise in my work. I have experience with multiple cultures and am a good communicator.
