Agile Project Manager for fast-growing, fully-funded start-up in The Amusement Park Industry

 

 

The Mandate

 

The Amusement park industry is ripe for disruption.

 

There are no platforms that are simultaneously enhancing the guest experience while driving operational efficiency and accelerating positive bottom line results.

 

As the agile project manager, you will provide the consistency needed to see software projects through from start to finish. With a mixture of technical knowledge and leadership, you will oversee the product being produced and work with the software development manager. Multiple web apps and mobile apps drive the software that is targeted at both guests of venues as well as those that operate these venues. 

 

The Company

 

Vantage is the technology division of the market leader in the WaterPark industry. Privately funded and growing rapidly, we have completed installations at several key locations around the globe.  We are now ready to scale, with a global sales channel, a strong funnel and a vision for the future. 

 

Vantage provides guests with an elevated experience through personalization, safety, loyalty rewards and digital overlays within attractions.   While guests are experiencing the venue, Vantage helps staff by contextualizing data that is meaningful to optimizing the overall operations of the venue.   Our clients range from water parks and theme parks to hotels and resorts, museums, zoos and much more.  Our goal is to grow our business by doubling clients year over year.

 

The team at Vantage is the heart of our success.  We strive to build a culture that meets the demands of our clients while driving satisfaction within our team.   We have a philosophy that ensures our work is engaging and fun while creating a differentiator in the marketplace and beyond. 

 

Team Organization

Reporting to the Director of Product Innovation and Customer Success,  you will be a critical member of a small but growing team. You will contribute to product vision and then drive that vision through to production. The team cadence includes annual planning, quarterly offsites, monthly updates, weekly priority meetings and daily huddles to ensure we capture opportunities in a very fast paced industry.  You will work out of our Longmont, CO or Vancouver, BC offices and will be provided all the necessary productivity tools to be successful. Live elsewhere but still think this is interesting?  Show us why you’re a great fit and we’ll work as a distributed team.
