Senior Project Manager
Do you dream of making a change for democracy?
Join our team of dedicated employees in a growth company with a strong purpose aimed at increasing participation in public and private democratic elections.
Introduction to Assembly Voting
Founded in 2001, Assembly Voting has expanded from our home market in DK to become a leading provider of software for digital and hybrid elections in Europe and increasingly the US and other parts of the world as well. Continuous development and improvement of our core software is a key focus area. Our development team is based inhouse in DK and has so far been financed entirely organic, making Assembly Voting an independent entity from external financial and political interests.
In 2021 Assembly Voting was selected by Tusk Philanthropy to develop and provide the next generation of mobile public election services in the US. Assembly Voting was competing with other world leading companies and was chosen due to our unique combination of advanced cryptography, proven system integrity and experience from 20+ years of providing election services. Today we are working with our US partners including prestigious scientific researchers, public institutions, global high-tech companies, local associations and NGOs.
We believe that everyone deserves a fair election where trust never relies on a single person or a vendor’s untested statement. We believe that elections must evolve into digital voting to remain a contemporary and accessible way of democratic participation. We are driven by finding the best solutions to support this transition without compromising any of the fundamental principles of a legitimate democratic election. That is why we focus on documentation, IT security, cryptography, verification, UX and application management, so that we can offer our customers legitimate voting solutions to comply with a wide range of statutory requirements.
Our strategy is that we invest in our team and we thrive on always being up to date, both in terms of certifications and technical competencies, so that we can deliver long-term and durable solutions to our customers. Situated in London and Copenhagen we are an international organisation with a strong global market presence. We push knowledge sharing across groups and strive for continuous development, both individually, with academics and with our customers.
The market for online election services is dramatically increasing and we are on a growth journey to become the market leader in online election services for “the masses”. Building a sales function capable of differentiating Assembly Voting and generating sales is a pivotal part of this effort, and consequently we are ramping up our headcount in this field.
We invite you to become part of this exciting journey.
You will be project managing our US project and other development projects in close corporation with the entire organisation, our partners and customers. Your main tasks will be to manage and facilitate our agile SW development projects within Assembly Votings product suite and to ensure a professional project service and support to our customers.
You will be the key person to manage visibility and accountability, in the deliveries from our customers and collaboration partners and secure deadlines and communication, both internally and towards our external stakeholders. On a weekly basis you will be responsible for reporting to our US partner and secure overall progress in the project.
In general your ability to communicate proactively and solution oriented is of great importance and is a part of the culture that we are striving to build in Assembly voting.
We are a relatively small but dedicated team of Danish and international developers, and we are working closely together on a daily basis to ensure collaboration and ever evolving products. As a Project Manager you will be a vital part of the daily planning, scope refinement, budget control and prioritisation in collaboration with the tech team and the Product owners.
By combining your solid project management experience with the growth journey that Assembly Voting is on, we can offer you a unique project management position, where you will meet interesting international customers and a genuine passion to support democratic development through best in class SW.
