The IBM iX team is currently seeking a Project Manager with digital delivery experience.

IBM iX operates across a range of clients and industries, developing solutions for B2C, B2B and B2E (Business-to-Employee). The projects may range from initial design prototypes to technical proof-of-concepts to full production-ready solution for release into the marketplace.
The Digital Project Manager's primary responsibility is to ensure we're delivering a quality product that is fit to purpose, delivered on time and within budget. This will involve
- Leading, managing and co-ordinating teams of strategists, designers, user experience practitioners, analysts, architects and developers and demonstrating effective leadership skills for delivery.
