You will be an important driving force within our Agile Environment and help our customers learn and execute in the best Agile way. You will be working at our Canberra office together with a strong service team and provide Agile Services. You will be responsible for running the day-to-day business and help our Account Manager in expanding our offerings within Australia and additional markets. In other words, you make sure all the capabilities we provide through our Solutions and Services are well integrated, configured, implemented and deployed in the customer environment.

The job requires a sales mindset and also includes gathering knowledge about the customer's way of doing business and feeding this back to the company to guide and inspire the SitaWare and IRIS product suite roadmap and development.

You have experience as an Agile Project Manager and have proven results running complex IT projects in a busy environment.
