Software Project Manager

What makes Holocentric exciting? 

Working in the R&D team at Holocentric isn't a regular software job. It's kind of like comparing fast food preparation with being a chef.

Building a product isn't just about the technology and writing software. It's about the impact on other people's lives. What we create makes a big difference to our customers, the way they work and people they interact with, be it keeping aircraft safe and in the sky, trains running, drinking water flowing, food being prepared in accordance with the strict regulations, or even helping to keep our country safe, our software is part of this.

We have a great team of people who have done some great software work over the years, including scripting and runtime engines, diagramming frameworks and metadata-based repositories. Needless to say, we're a diverse bunch who love doing interesting things.

What we're missing now is you.

As Project Manager, you will play a crucial role in managing the overall planning and delivery of software product projects. You will be responsible for ensuring projects are completed on time to the right quality standards, for the agreed scope.

You will work with the Design and Development teams, organise project sprints, and establish estimates and tasks from relevant parties and track and report on progress and issues.

Responsibilities include:

  • Work with Software Owner and Product Owners to establish timelines and scope

  • Manage the product release schedule

  • Schedule sprint timing and meetings, appoint or perform SCRUM master role

  • Coordinate activity across projects, report conflicts and suggest options

  • Track project resource usage and provide metrics on project work

  • Prepare and distribute project status and information in a timely manner

  • Manage team capacity and resource planning

  • Report on project team member performance

  • Implementation of strong project governance

  • Ensure R&D activity is relevant and recorded in an appropriate manner


  • 5+ years of software project management experience.

  • Strong leadership and stakeholder management skills.

  • Strong experience driving and managing stakeholder expectations.

  • Excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills.

  • Proven experience in managing full SDLC projects within an Agile environment.

  • Strong organisational skills with proven ability to prioritise and manage multiple projects within given timeframes.

  • Proficiency in JIRA and relevant project management software.

  • Tertiary education in relevant field (Engineering or Technical discipline).


We are committed to building excellence and work hard to provide a workplace that encourages and supports our people. We have a highly collaborative and social team environment with open offices, Friday drinks, offsite company kick-offs and team building activities. We offer a range of opportunities for career and professional development plus a real ability to help shape our product future. We also have a share options scheme so you can participate in the success of our business.

We don’t believe in fixing people in rigid positions, but rather seek to match interest and capability. If you like a challenge, want to deliver exceptional results and seek to reach your potential, we’d like to hear from you!


So by now you would have realised that we aren't your average software company. We have big dreams for our business and our people.

You wouldn't want to be the one who missed their opportunity to be part of a company that is on its way to becoming a leading Australian software company.
