Overview

At Br8kthru, Project Managers are all about cohesion and connection, keeping a project aligned and moving forward, and the team supported and engaged. It’s an absolutely critical component to helping our teams tackle digital complexity with confidence.

A great Project Manager leads project teams by effectively ensuring all key stakeholders (internal and external) have the information they need to support or deliver great work on time, on budget, and without surprises. A great PM also communicates with empathy, solves problems (autonomously or collaboratively), and is strategic about project decisions and their management of people.
