Job description

In this role, you will be helping lead the charge toward a more Agile and collaborative working environment at Nitro. You will be reporting to the Operations Director, and managing a nearshore team of developers, as well as liaising closely with the Client Services, Creative and Commercial teams. You will oversee the work of a more junior Project Manager, and have a access to Project support staff.

The successful candidate will attend client meetings, with the Account Manager, in a technical capacity and provide the first point of contact for technical queries.
