Position Details: 

You didn’t just organize Halloween candy by color, size, and overall brand sentiment — you convinced your friends to adopt your organizational schema. Today, you bring your big-picture thinking, charm and gravitas to the Internet.

Kalamuna needs a hands-on agile project manager to plan and manage large projects, primarily in Drupal. You’ll push the project from discovery, including UX research and design activities, to prototyping and implementation on schedule, in scope, and on budget. You will analyze things, report things, and refine the flows of things. You’ll act as liaison between an account manager, a content strategist, UX designers, architects, developers, and client stakeholders.

You’ll also work with leadership to forecast team engagement across project spaces, and contribute to organizational productivity and individual happiness. Kalamuna also invests considerably in open source, engages communities, and actively builds tools to power our process. You will play an active part in improving organizational process. Involvement in early stage estimation and proposal creation is possible if you find that work enticing.

  • Proficiency with JIRA + comfort with its reporting capabilities
