For our Data team we’re looking for a Data Project Manager. Helping us to effectively use the capacity of our teams, and guide some of the projects on a process level. Simply said, we are with many, and need you to make sure we do the right thing at the right time!

Our Data teams are growing at a high pace. And although we have very talented people on board, they are better in data than process. Besides that, we have a lot of questions coming in, some small, some enormous. So we need your help to remain efficient.

In this role you are the right hand of the leads of our 5 data teams (Insights, Analytics, BI, Engineering and Science). We also closely collaborate with data teams in the other Dept countries, and our office in Macedonia, with a Dept Data team of its own to support us. And then there is what we call the “flex layer”; several freelancers helping us out if we don’t have the capacity ourselves.

Your work will consist out of mainly 4 things:

  1. Service requests. Small questions for mainly our analytics people, with it’s own service desk application to keep a clear overview.
  2. Project team assembly. With new projects coming in, who should we onboard from each discipline. Together with the team leads you will match client questions, specialist skills and the team planning. For both the NL but also MK side of the team.
  3. Flex layer management. The linking pin between the gaps in the planning and the known (or new) freelancers. Check availability and support on administration of projects
  4. Be the Project Manager for a couple of data only projects, or the 2nd pm in a project focussing on data, next to an overall PM focussing on marketing or platform development.
