Our Project Management Organization (PMO) is growing and we are looking for a collaborative, tenacious, experienced Program Manager (PM) to run our new Implementation and Hypercare Program as we roll out enterprise software to a number of client locations. As a successful PM at Levvel, you will take an open, people first approach to leadership. You must be highly motivated in your work and be driven by a strong desire to serve and help others. Our PM’s are proactive in identifying gaps, suggesting improvements, and taking the initiative to make them happen. As a PM at Levvel you operate as a natural storyteller, understanding the context of decision making and explaining it to others. You are not afraid to give candid and constructive feedback with empathy, and know how to adapt your communication style for different seniorities and audiences. As a successful PM at Levvel, you have the discipline to weather difficult deadlines and shifts in team morale, as well as track down action items, decisions and impediments until they are resolved. You know how to build trust in your team and know how to transparently raise blockers, risks, and dependencies both inside and outside your team.
As a PM you will work closely with Account Management, Tech Leads, and BAs to help add context to work items and dependencies and/or risks. You will work with Project Managers to communicate escalations, if appropriate, and collaborate on client facing reports and presentations. In addition, you will work with other PMs across teams and client stakeholders. A successful PM at Levvel has a strong sense of awareness of what others are doing, has a genuine interest in enabling people to perform at their best, and constantly works through obstacles to persevere with honesty and integrity.
Within the first 3 months as a PM you will be familiar with your project teams and the client, you will have established and be following a number of program standards, and can speak with confidence to client stakeholders about the overall program status. You will have established plans for the implementation and hypercare of our enterprise software into the first wave of locations, which you will be responsible for. 
Within the first year as a Levvel PM you will have a high performing program team, with strong team morale, that is regularly delivering good quality deliverables for the client, as contracted. The Implementation and Hypercare Program will have increased its velocity to match both Levvel and client expectations. You will have a strong relationship with the client and can identify other areas of their business where Levvel may be able to help. You will be participating in one or more Levvel internal initiatives and sharing any learnings from your client work with other PMs. 
Here at Levvel, we truly empower people to define their own career path and support you in your development. You are never pigeon-holed into a role at Levvel. We want you to be the best consultant possible, so will stretch you to build on existing skills, learn new ones, and share those across the organization.
