Project Strategist

At Big Nerd Ranch we specialize in developing business-building mobile and web apps for our clients. We then teach students what we’ve learned through our signature immersive bootcamps, and every year we release new books in our best-selling series of Big Nerd Ranch Guides.

How do we do it?  It’s all our people -- we only hire the best. And then we live our values of being brilliant, kind, and hardworking.

We are looking for a Project Strategist to join the team.  Project Strategists at Big Nerd Ranch are a delicious and nutritious combination of product manager, project manager, and scrum master. Strategists are many things, but ultimately just one thing--obsessive about ensuring that projects are successful in the end. Think of a project strategist like the grease between the gears, the buttresses of a cathedral, or the neurotic coworker that loves to nerd out on software development methodologies.

Project strategists are proactive, disciplined, communicative, caring, and critical thinkers. They love being helpful. They love their teams. They love their job.
