Project Manager - ThinkLP

Who Is ThinkLP & How Are They Changing the World?

 

ThinkLP is a fast-growing retail operations software that is focused on serving loss prevention departments in helping curb the ever-growing shoplifting and organized retail crime problem facing the world. Their products are considered best-in-class by retailers to track and predict looming theft issues happening at organizations today.

ThinkLP is a multinational company headquartered in Waterloo, ON, Canada, with employees across North America, with a really strong product-market fit, big goals ahead and strong market positioning to continue to scale.

How Will I Make An Impact?

 

As a Project Manager, you will oversee the planning, execution, and successful delivery of customer projects and implementations for Technology Solutions within the Exception Based Reporting (EBR) team. 

 

For context, the EBR product is separate from ThinkLP’s core product offering, as it’s seen as an add-on for customers looking for more advanced data transformation and analysis. It’s also an area that has a lot of growth potential for the ThinkLP business, so you will play a key role in this & will add more organization. 

 

Your primary focus will be on project management and control, ensuring deadlines are met, and that projects are completed within budget. Additionally, you will leverage your strong technical background to understand and scale technology solutions that enhance team throughput.

 

As the Project Manager, you will focus on the following:

  • Project Planning: Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define project scope, objectives, and deliverables. Develop detailed project plans, timelines, and resource allocation strategies.

  • Analytical Project Planning: Prepared to guide the team through the entire analytics lifecycle, including tracking product launches, defining success metrics, crafting analytics plans, timelines, and seeing projects through to completion.

  • Project Control: Monitor project progress, identify potential risks or roadblocks, and implement timely corrective actions to keep projects on track.

  • Resource Management: Allocate resources effectively, balancing workload to optimize team throughput and meet project deadlines.

  • Technical Expertise: Utilize your strong technical background to understand the intricacies of customer solutions and assess the feasibility of scaling technology to improve team productivity.

  • Budget Management: Ensure projects are completed within budget constraints while delivering the expected quality and value to customers.

  • Stakeholder Communication: Regularly communicate project status, progress, and potential issues to stakeholders, both internal and external.

  • Risk Mitigation: Identify potential project risks and develop contingency plans to minimize their impact on project outcomes.

  • Continuous Improvement: Analyze project performance metrics and identify areas for process improvement and increased efficiency.

  • Customer Focus: Collaborate with the sales and customer support teams to understand customer needs and ensure project solutions meet their expectations.

  • Team Collaboration: Foster a collaborative and supportive team environment, promoting effective communication and knowledge-sharing.
