Project Manager
Elkhart , Indiana
November 16, 2016
TEKsystems is currently seeking a Project Manager to join their newly established PMO which is located at their Corporate office in Elkhart. Mike recently hired in as a full time employee (consulted for 1.5 years) and he is charged with building out a formalized PMO over the next few years. The initial step is to hire some additional folks that will help drive projects as well as develop best practices, processes, and standards. End goal is to build out a true enterprise PMO but for the next year or two he plans to align project managers to specific solution verticals within the IT organization. Candidate will initially be aligned to the vertical responsible for customer facing systems and solutions (i.e. Salesforce CRM, Call Center, Magento, etc.). Experience within will benefit but not a must as they are truly open to more of a generalist to begin with as they build out the initial team. Future roles within the PMO will require more specific skills and experience surrounding ERP, M&A, or other disciplines.

Building the PMO from the ground up so it is critical that any candidate understands that there are minimal processes in place at this time. Additionally, they aren't looking for a heavy hitter from a process perspective that will come in with an agenda or aspirations of serving as a PMO director as they are far from this stage. Candidate will need to jump in at the ground floor, take on project delivery, while also working to help establish some of the best practices that will help Lippert at this time and for the foreseeable future. (as a company Lippert isn't overly structured and they couldn't care less about PMP/PMBOK so this is important to keep in mind). Ideal candidate will have about 3-5 years in project management experience (even in consulting) but they are looking to settle down and help build something within a growing company.

Day to day: For the next 6-12 months candidate will be closely aligned to technology vertical (ex CRM, Salesforce, Call Center). Will report in to product manager/director over specific vertical. Daily duties will involve driving meetings, handling coordination of meetings and follow up, sending notes, data entry into pm system (Workfront - cloud based tool), creating schedules, work breakdown structures, high level work, etc.

**Lippert hires based upon cultural fit as closely as they will based upon qualifications. This is a full time position; however, Mike may entertain a contract to hire as this is how he started with the organization.

Seeking a Bachelors Degree at minimum but will consider someone without a degree if they bring the right experience to the table.
