About the Role

As our Junior Project Manager you will deliver high quality, on-time implementation experiences for our enterprise customers. You will accomplish this through execution of an implementation plan for multiple, concurrent projects across all of our customers. As a Junior Project Manager you will manage a project team consisting of controls engineers and application engineers, and you will be responsible for turning our contracted Statement of Work (SOW) into reality. Your leadership will help us deliver our product to our customers- both our enterprise clients who purchase the product, and their employee end-users who benefit from the amazing workplace experience Comfy delivers.

As our Junior Project Manager you will be the face of Comfy’s core product, both externally and often internally and will own relationships with our customer's technical teams. To excel at this position, you will use your deep technical understanding of how Comfy works, balanced with your keen eye for project roadblocks and hurdles. You will also need to pitch in to help customers build out their customized user interface: knowledge of a building’s mechanical systems is also a huge plus as we deploy Comfy across millions of square feet.

You will understand how each of your customers thinks about the value of Comfy, and assist them by handling any objections or obstacles that they may face during deployment. You will help identify, track, and resolve projects risks, escalating them to relevant resources when appropriate. You will manage upwards of fifteen building project plans and projects at a time while building out user interfaces and customizing aspects of our deployment.

In order to accomplish your goals you will always be planning, hyper-organized, detail-oriented, proactively communicating, and uncompromising in meeting your commitments. You will recognize that delegation and resourceful execution are necessary to meet your ambitious objectives. Your persistent and enthusiastic pursuit of high standards will result in collaborative team efforts that push our standards for implementation processes forward and delight customers!
