Job Description :
This is a 6 mo CTH (will also consider direct hire from the jump) Project Manager position.
NOTE: This is a PM position that requires experience managing both SDLC and Infrastructure projects from start to finish. If the PM has any ERP implementation experience it will be a plus, but it’s not required. Once Varsity determines what ERP system they will implement they will then hire a separate PM for that project, but the two PM’s will work together.

Interview: phone and F2F
