About Promptworks

Promptworks builds ingenious software that lasts for innovative companies with big ideas. 

We bring deep product development & software engineering expertise, human-centric design thinking, and transparent processes to the table to solve hard problems for companies as small as early-stage startups and as large as Fortune 50 corporations. Our clients spread across many different industries: green energy, healthcare, education, telecommunications, finance, and retail to name a few.

We are looking for people to join our team who value the same things we do: doing outstanding work, continuously growing ourselves as practitioners, maintaining work-life balance, and supporting the communities in which we work, live and learn.

About the position

We’re looking for a well-rounded project manager passionate about helping companies build and launch innovative digital products. As the connective tissue on a product development team, project managers are essential to bringing a client’s vision to the world by ensuring that projects are properly scoped, managed, and delivered in collaboration with our clients. 

Using Agile best practices and techniques, project managers align our team and the client around product vision, bring out the best in our product development teams, and help improve our internal processes. Project managers work on a wide variety of projects with clients that range from large-scale enterprises to scrappy startups disrupting an industry and everything in between. 

About the ideal candidate

You take a collaborative approach, dedicated to winning as a team. You live for the details, but you don’t lose sight of the big picture. You enjoy translating undefined ideas into actionable solutions. Process is a valuable tool, but you don’t let it interfere with team collaboration. You default to getting things done and helping your team do the same. You are comfortable switching from a granular refinement exercise to presenting a high-level proposal for executives. You’re a lifelong learner and always looking for ways to improve as a professional. 

Candidates for this role should have 3-5 years of relevant experience, with preference to those with previous product experience.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
