Senior Project Manager
Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, NetherlandsProject Management
Would you like to lead projects for clients such as AFC Ajax, NLZIET, and citizenM in the right direction? At Triple, we work on cool digital projects for large and small clients, often used by millions of people. We are looking for a Project Manager with a solid footing to ensure that all these projects are delivered correctly. Who effortlessly steers the most complex projects in the right direction and enjoys creating the best digital solutions for our customers with a group of fun, talented colleagues. Who would like to develop further and who want to grow with our ambitions.
What will you do?
As a Senior Project Manager, you are mandated to take end-to-end responsibilities for a project, from participating in pre-sales to ultimately handing over to the maintenance operation. The role is to lead large, complex projects and take responsibility for achieving the agreed goals and objectives. The role focuses on helping clients achieve their desired business objectives, managing transition & transformation and managing stakeholders/governance. This includes implementation, business, stakeholder management and adoption aspects.
Whilst using established methodologies and processes, as our Project Manager, you are moulding them as required to provide the best solution for the project deployment. Typically, a hybrid model is used to execute projects. On the operational level, an Agile methodology is used. On the tactical and strategic levels, PMI governance structures are built.
The Senior Project Manager contributes to the advancement of Triple's project management practice and elevates it to the next level, thereby contributing to the company's aspirations.
What do you bring with you?
As a Project Manager, we expect you to be convincing and able to take the lead on several projects simultaneously. You dare to think outside the box and have good analytical skills. You recognise commercial opportunities (note: you don't have to make sales; we have our account managers for this) and show a hands-on mentality.
You are firmly in your shoes in terms of communication. You can switch quickly between the different parties and projects and also dare to say 'no' when ideas or solutions are not feasible to customers and your colleagues. But above all, you are a team player who asks for and shares knowledge. You independently direct several projects simultaneously and support projects where necessary, for example, when it comes to testing.
As a Senior Project Manager, you understand all the ins and outs of project management. You are responsible for completing projects on time, within budget and with the desired result. You are responsible for planning, managing and executing complex projects with high budget responsibility and multiple stakeholders. Your duties include:
- Preparing project plans.
- Managing resources.
- Coordinating teams and work.
- Monitoring progress and ensuring the quality of the final product.
Our colleagues are our most important weapon within Triple. With solid teamwork, we can do the best work together. Our project management team comprises about 15 colleagues, with a good mix of juniors, mediors and seniors. Every Thursday, we meet as a team to review the projects, discuss what PMs encounter, and learn from each other. Although you have a solo role as PM, you are never alone. You have a large team to spar with.
We characterise ourselves as:
- Possessing a strong team spirit.
- Having a solid understanding of technology.
- Being customer-oriented and caring.
- Embracing a can-do mentality.
We operate according to the following principles:
- Upholding integrity: we follow through on our words and actions.
- Embracing simplicity: we strive for straightforward and efficient approaches.
- Fostering a culture of learning and collaboration: we are enthusiastic about acquiring and sharing knowledge with others.
- Recognising change as a constant: we adapt and evolve in response to evolving circumstances.
- Cultivating trust: we work in an environment of mutual confidence and reliability.
- Presenting a unified front: we project a cohesive image externally.
- Prioritising open communication: we value transparent and effective exchange of information.
- Emphasising enjoyment in our work: we believe in finding fulfilment and satisfaction.
We further support each other by sharing tips & tricks, holding knowledge sessions and keeping each other well-informed. You, therefore, always have a backup ready. In addition, you always work on your projects with a Tech Lead or Architect for technical issues and an Account Manager for commercial matters.
We think it is crucial that you, together with your talented colleagues, not only create beautiful solutions for our customers but also give you the space to grow yourself. We have set up an extensive development program for all our Triple colleagues. Within this program, we offer you personal guidance from our in-house coach and all training opportunities for technical and soft skills with which we can help you achieve your development goals. For example, obtaining your certification as a project manager is possible.
