What would your role look like?

As our new IT Project Manager your main task is to support the development team to formulize and coordinate what they can achieve during each development sprint (or other period). Here you will facilitate daily or weekly standup and support the team in reaching consensus on difficult matters and remove any obstacles to the project progress and protecting the team from distractions.

You will maintain the product backlog (Azure DevOps) and ensure alignment, transparency and progress about project goals and scope in close collaboration with the business project manager and/or owner.

Who are we looking for?

You have a Bachelor (BSc) or master’s degree (MSc) in business administration or computer science from the IT university, DTU or other university with focus on IT and preferably have 1-3 years of experience with IT project management based on agile principles.
