About The Role

The  Technical Project Manager is to develop and maintain a technology project plan for the computer vision team, which outlines a project's tasks, milestone dates, status, and allocation of resources to stakeholders and other interested parties. The technical project manager is responsible for clearly defining and quantifying each step, as well as establishing concrete deadlines for each project milestone and deliverable.  To this end, you must have a demonstrated ability to anticipate problems and to find resolutions before that problem can derail a major milestone or deliverable. Since the typical project has a long life cycle, the technical project manager handles all of the complex aspects of the project. The technical project manager should have superior communications skills, since they mediate disputes, as well as resolve scheduling and asset utilization conflicts.
