Project Manager

Project Manager

Boston | Massachusetts | United States

Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We're a company ready for change and that's who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that's why we hire individuals. So we're speaking the same language.

Technology

We Need Someone Who Speaks Computer

Computers have their own language. Which most of us don't speak. But you do. And we need your fluency. Let's face it. The modern world is shackled to computers so we need experts like yourself to keep us running. So come join our crew. You don't have to call yourself The Computer Whisperer but we might.
Description

Converse serves the daring spirit of youth.  We embrace that as an organization in everything we do.  We are a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries, and push out the edges of what can be. We're looking for people who can grow, think, dream and create. We thrive in a culture that embraces diversity and rewards imagination. We seek achievers, leaders and visionaries.

We bring together technology and process expertise to deliver one-stop solutions that enable Converse, products and services. We are responsible for creating, developing and deploying seamless, tailored and inherently social experiences to its all consumers and customers - internal and external.

As a Project Manager, your role on the team will include working with product owners and product teams across many functions.  In this role you will coordinate, lead, plan and execute delivery of strategic initiatives.  Leveraging your experience in project and program management, agile and scrum, you will bring organization, governance and collaboration to project and programs that cut across Converse team, Nike Teams and external vendors.

What we are looking for:
  • Strong strategic and business case development expertise working alongside program and project sponsors and experience leads.
  • Contract and vendor management success with demonstrated ability to build partnerships across organizational, department, and geographical boundaries.
  • Successful management experience with strategy, risk, issue, communications, and other supporting plans such as training, resource planning and trade-off analysis.
  • Coaching and mentoring of project team members including less seasoned project managers in an inspirational and effective manner is critical.
  • Experience driving product teams, product owners, and scrum teams into a coordinated plan and delivery.
  • Practical experience with project and program budget tracking.


Qualifications
  • Bachelors' degree in Business, Computer Science or a related field, with 6 years' professional experience.
  • 2 years' additional relevant professional experience in lieu of a degree
  • 5 years' project/program management experience
  • Experience using Agile delivery tools and Scrum
  • Relevant certification preferred


Converse is more than a company; it's a worldwide advocate for self-expression. This belief motivates our employees, permeates our working environment and inspires our products. No two of us look or think exactly alike. We are each one-of-a-kind. Individually and as a culture, we have the freedom to create and grow professionally. Generous benefits packages only sweeten the experience. From Boston to Shanghai, from Brand Design to Finance, Converse is a brand that celebrates the unique and creative people of the world. Together, we're different.
