Project Manager

Bishop Fox, Phoenix, AZ

See jobs at Bishop Fox

We are trusted advisors to the world's leading businesses, governments, and organizations — helping to secure their commerce, data, IT infrastructure, and intellectual property. From critical infrastructure to credit cards; social media to mobile games; flight navigation systems to frozen waffle factories — we’re right there hacking away.

We’re now hiring a composed and capable information technology project manager for our Phoenix office.

Who You Are and What You’ll Do

If you had managed the construction of the Death Star, would it have exploded?
Probably not.

You are something of a “people person” when it comes to work and you genuinely enjoy building and maintaining client relationships. You have a not-so-secret weak spot for a good Gantt chart; resource allocation, scheduling, and project management software set your heart aflutter.

As an information technology project manager at Bishop Fox, you will be multitasking, collaborating, and communicating day in and day out. You’ll use formal and informal methods to connect with colleagues and clients — you would send a message on carrier pigeon if need be.

On client engagements, you’ll set, meet, and exceed expectations. With colleagues, you’ll ensure your team has the tools, documentation, and input needed to complete a successful project. You’ll manage scope creep, risks, documentation, and project issues. From internal teams to client-facing, you’ll lead internal alignment, client kick-off, internal and client-facing status, delivery, and closeout meetings.

The projects you will be responsible for managing involve the latest and greatest technologies from today’s hottest companies. You’ll interface with the highest levels of client management and act as their main point of contact. Internally and externally, you will be an invaluable asset.

You will herd cats, and they will love you for it.

Why Bishop Fox

Bishop Fox offers competitive salary, generous benefits, flexible schedules, and opportunities for travel. If you’re looking to grow professionally, this is the place. You’ll work alongside some of the most talented and experienced security consultants in the industry.

We have a casual workplace environment, but we‘re consummate professionals. 

Your Experience

The following is a list of skills you will ideally have in your repertoire. If you have most of these, we’d like to speak to you.

• Three to five years’ experience managing technical projects
• Previous external client experience is preferred
• Intermediate knowledge of Word, Excel, and MS project (or similar project management software)
• Ability to work independently and manage several projects simultaneously
• Professional communication skills
• Willingness to travel (at least) up to 25 percent over the course of a year if needed
• Comfortable cultivating positive relationships with a variety of personalities and skillsets
• Familiarity with project management methodologies (PMBOK or company-specific methodologies)
• Familiarity with one or more programming languages (to keep up with our consultants)
• IT infrastructure or software design knowledge a plus
• IT security knowledge is a huge plus! Especially as it concerns mobile software and web applications.
• You’ve got charm to spare

Apply today by sending your resume and cover letter. In your cover letter, please explain why — if you had overseen the building of it -  the Death Star would have never exploded.
