The Rapid7 Associate Project Manager, Consulting Services is responsible for managing the services delivery lifecycle from scheduling to lining up project resources, managing customer expectations, ensuring the project is executed well and then closing out the project. This role will reside on the Global Services PMO team, but have dotted line connections to one or more Practice Managers responsible for technical resources. As a result, the ideal candidate will be able to master resource competencies, manage customer, team and management expectations and drive results by leading without direct authority. In short, this is a significant role, which presents the opportunity to impact the growth and direction of the organization.

Two – four years of experience in a project management or operational role 
Proven ability to manage high volume of activity effectively in a matrix resource environment – you get stuff done 
You like to look at things from a lot of different angles and come up with great solutions – never settling for “the path of less resistance” 
You consider Excel and PowerPoint old friends, not enemies 
Experience with CRM Systems (NetSuite, a plus but not required)

Experience working in a services organization within a software company
