The firm’s core offering is designing and building products for Salesforce ISV partners. The company also provides a range of services to Salesforce customers and on other SaaS platforms.
Project Managers are responsible for making software projects come to fruition while delighting clients so they beg for more. In this job, you'll manage budgets of all sizes, excessive client expectations, surly developers, aloof architects, and an omnipresent clock loudly ticking away the days on your precious project plan. With the patience of a preschool teacher and the brawn of a linebacker, Project Managers focus on the scope while balancing quality, cost, and schedule. Besides spending a significant amount of time communicating, you will also oversee QA, produce project documentation and artifacts, support UX and development specialists, report on project status and metrics, implement client products for their customers, and learn about SaaS software development on the Salesforce and ServiceNow platforms. Because the position straddles the business and technical realms, Project Managers at CodeScience are exposed to more case studies than MBA hopefuls.

You're a human can of Raid - you know what bugs are, how to describe them in detail and have an insatiable need to kill them (or get them put into budget for the next project phase).
You're familiar with Salesforce, you’ve heard they are taking over the world, and you want to learn more.
You raise issues quickly instead of sweeping them under the carpet. You are not afraid to ask for help.

You wake up in the morning thinking about how to make software teams work better.
You believe passionately that done is better than perfect.
