O poziciji

Very Big Things (VBT), an international award-winning digital product agency is looking for Mid-level/Senior Project managers/Scrum masters. We have offices in the US (Miami), Croatia (Zagreb), and Ukraine (Odessa) with our core business being the development of web and/or mobile platforms we create for our US clients. We are hiring for our Zagreb (Croatia) office - this is NOT a remote position.

What does a Project manager/Scrum master in VBT do? Well, they are in a position of leading a great team in building an exceptional product that would solve someone’s problem and make life easier – in an agile way, within a realistic estimate and in a reasonable time, while keeping the team motivated and the client satisfied. The PM/SM is in charge of managing all work on the project - coordinating between the account manager, developers, and designers, making sure everything is on track, and ensuring things stay that way. If things do complicate over time, the PM/SM is there to take appropriate steps to get the project team going in the right direction again.

Our main focus is building kickass web/mobile apps and platforms as well as VR experiences. Some of the awesome and challenging projects we’ve built that make a difference include:

  • helping a client with digital transformation by building a telehealth platform enabling them to provide healthcare to thousands of users in the time of global health crisis
  • building a mobile app for the premier boat rental company in Florida, allowing users to effortlessly rent a boat from the palm of their hand
  • helping the #1 health-tech company provide clarity in a global crisis by building a COVID-19 Map using complex data to help individuals make critical decisions for themselves, their families, and their employees
  • building a first-ever real-time all-inclusive wellness application, providing everyone with an elegant and simple solution to living a healthier life
  • a peer-to-peer platform connecting college students to the elderly, solving life's problems. Like taking out the trash, walking the dog, or having a pleasant conversation.
