Scrum Master / Project Manager

Talage is a venture-backed, Reno-based start-up that is attacking the small business insurance space- a massive market that is ripe for major disruption. We are growing fast and looking for great people to help us go from exciting start-up to industry heavyweight. It’s a crazy ride, but it’s worth it.

Who We’re Looking For

We want individuals that are comfortable with the unknown, that have built amazing things with little direction, that can’t wait to help build a company from the ground up, and most importantly are excited about doing something that has never been done before. We are challenging the status quo, and we want more people like us.

Are you passionate about managing complex projects and getting results? Are you self-motivated and enjoy learning new things?  Are you always thinking of better ways of doing things?

If you jumped up in front of your screen and yelled an enthusiastic “hell, yeah!” as you read those questions, or honestly, even if you just sat and said a very confident “yes” in your head- you could be who we are looking for!

The Role

  • Exercise best practices in project management throughout all project phases including initiation, planning, monitoring and controlling, and closure.
  • Align and set expectations with stakeholders on the scope of work and deliverables
  • Develop and manage detailed project schedules and work plans in JIRA, ClickUp, or other similar tools
  • Provide project updates on a consistent basis to stakeholders and the technology leadership team about strategy, adjustments, and progress
  • Utilize industry best practices, techniques, and standards throughout the entire project
  • Measure project performance to identify areas for improvement

Stuff We Really Care About

  • 3+ years of experience in IT Project Management and demonstrated success with information technology project management involving cross-functional teams.
  • Experience with Agile development and scrum project management.  Certified ScrumMaster or CSM wannabe is a huge plus!
  • Experience planning, managing, and delivering small to large scale projects.
  • Project management capability – the ability to manage multiple projects and priorities simultaneously, while managing external stakeholders, and holding internal teams accountable to deadlines.
  • Excellent interpersonal effectiveness and communication skills (written and oral)
  • Strong organizational planning skills and understanding of IT and business systems

Why you should definitely work with us

  • Stock ownership. own a part of what you build- imagine that.
  • Full Medical, Dental, Vision, and Life Insurance. we pay for employees 100%
  • Flexible schedule. honestly.
  • Unlimited & mandatory vacation. this is not a trick.
  • 401(k). because nobody wants to work forever…
  • Be a part of a badass Reno startup. we’re pretty tight with the community
  • More… we are just getting started

A little about us

Talage is an industry-leading software solution that enables the online sale of commercial property and casualty insurance. Talage allows insurance agencies and companies to sell insurance to small business wherever they are online, and with an experience that we’ve all come to expect.
