Project Scrum Team – Project Owner
Flood Marketing is seeking a Project Owner who understands the vision of a particular
project from the viewpoint of the client/end user/stakeholders and conveys that vision
to the Scrum team. You will be responsible for managing priorities, understanding the
project team’s backlog of work, and clearly communicating the necessary details
around the work from the backlog to the team.
Vibes & Things
You are passionate about marketing and have a thorough understanding of the
industry. You are an incredible communicator, superbly organized with a killer ability to
prioritize client needs; who combines charisma with a genuine delight at interfacing
with clients and is capable of keeping your emotions/stress level in check despite
enormous challenges. You enjoy developing and communicating a clear scope of work
to clients and, once the work has been signed, generating excitement about a
particular project to the team. You know what the definition of “done” means. You’re
not afraid to determine what is most important and communicate that plainly. You
know how and when to say no. You love being your client’s biggest advocate and your
team’s biggest advocate – sometimes you feel like you’re a swiss army knife. You
spend so much time thinking about prioritization, it hurts. You have great mechanisms
and skills to gather consensus, create alignment on tasks, and help move a team
forward. You’re a rockstar in a can with energy to boot.
