IT Project Manager
steer projects safely to success
Project experts and facilitators pay attention. As (Senior) IT Project Manager you will support our customers in successfully completing challenging technology projects. You will take on different roles depending on the situation: project manager, product owner, IT expert, crisis solver, communications professional or a mixture of these. In any case, you will develop into a Trusted Advisor who will win the trust of our customers, thus creating the valuable basis for our sustainable business relationships.
Agile methods such as Scrum and Kanban are just as relevant as classic project management. In order to accompany our customers on the agile change, you are therefore proficient in both predictive and agile project methods and apply them optimally depending on the requirements. In short: You will contribute your strengths and experience to our “Delivery Leadership” team and thus help our customers to achieve their project goals.
Depending on your experience and project setup, you manage and represent other employees, your team or the whole project. As a Servant Leader you take care of the professional and personal development of the team members. In doing so, you are an important part of our management team, take on responsibility in the company and live our values in order to actively contribute to the community and the common success.
What should I bring?
distinct experience in the implementation of complex IT and software development projects
experience in agile and classic project methods (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, PMI, IPMA, Prince2)
motivation to make a difference with us
5 questions to Philipp – IT project manager from Munich
Who are you? Please introduce yourself.
Hello, I am Philipp, Senior Manager at our Munich location.
How did you come to it-economics?
After my studies of computer science I worked for many years at a large consulting firm. In terms of projects and clients, I had a lot of variety, but internally I wanted to see something new and at the same time stay true to the consulting business. it-economics was exactly what I was looking for: a medium-sized consulting firm, large enough for networking and variety, yet small enough to take on more responsibility internally and to make use of room for maneuver.
What do you like best about your job?
I like variety and like to think about new topics. When I come across a new project, especially with a client who is new to me, it is always a leap in the dark. I then have to quickly understand the problem and framework conditions, build networks and absorb the customer culture. I often think back to my time as a backpacker travelling to distant countries – the challenges were quite similar.
What are you working on?
At the moment I am involved in a project that is being implemented mainly in Singapore. I like the complexity of the tasks and the international flair. I already know Singapore from my studies abroad, which of course helps.
What don’t you like?
Due to the time difference, direct communication is only possible in the early morning. I’m not really an early riser, but sometimes this is necessary for effective cooperation.
What do you appreciate most about it-economics?
I have many opportunities to get involved internally. I can assume responsibility and enjoy the trust and freedom to develop topics that are important for our employees and our customers. For example, as Product Owner of our “Software Delivery Management” Value Team, I am responsible for developing the service portfolio for customers and offering our employees appropriate training. My motivation, which brought me to it-economics almost five years ago, has been confirmed to this day.
Your career as a consultant in IT project management
No matter on which level you join us, you are always a valuable team member with a high impact in your project. In addition, you can expect an environment with a strong focus on personal development. For this purpose, you will be provided with a personal training budget every year. You can individually choose from a wide range of topics from internal and external trainers. This not only allows you to further develop your expertise, but also gives you the opportunity to pursue interests beyond your own nose. Your career advisor and your mentor will also be available for your development.
From the executive level on, you will take on an important role within the management of the company in addition to project work. In this way, you will play an active role in shaping it-economics and are also responsible for the well-being of your team and your customers. You will become a trusted advisor to your customers and control the economic success of your projects.
“With us, no day is like the other, I like the variety because every day offers the chance to develop. I especially like the exchange with my colleagues – a smart, humorous group that pulls together and on which I can build.”
“I like working at it-economics because we are a cool team with friendly and helpful colleagues. I appreciate our flat hierarchies with superiors who listen and appreciate. In addition, we are strongly encouraged in terms of further development, whether through further training or learning from colleagues, which makes us fit for interdisciplinary work”.
“I love my job as a Project Lead, because it is very diverse due to the people, the scope of the project and the new challenges I have to face. This gives me the opportunity to constantly develop myself and learn new things. Together with my team I work out the best possible solutions for our customers, with the focus on making processes and procedures efficient. As a manager, I actively promote open communication within the team, as I believe this is essential for successful project implementation.
