JOB DESCRIPTION & TYPICAL TASKS
The primary role of the Project Manager is to help coordinate the planning, prioritization, and execution of engineering projects. In order to do so, the Project Manager is expected to work alongside the mechanical, electrical and software engineering teams engaged in engineering projects and
a) coordinate the generation of project initiation, scope definition, and completion documents, and
b) to continuously monitor and keep up to date the status of execution of said projects by managing the engineering project schedule continuously toward expected deliverables and timelines, as the various projects progress.
The goal of the Project Manager is to facilitate the planning and execution of project tasks by an interdisciplinary team of mechanical, electrical, and software engineers. S/he will be involved in projects related to product/development engineering as well as projects relating to manufacturing/process engineering. In turn, these projects will typically involve the design and implementation of mechanical hardware, electrical hardware, and software engineering components.
The Project Manager should have the ability to effectively and consistently organize and coordinate engineering projects associated with the torque sensor product line and associated manufacturing infrastructure to ensure the work is handled in a controlled and predictable fashion. His/her efforts will result in a transparent, accessible, and up to date status of all engineering projects on a continuous basis. These projects span several disciplines including materials science, mechanical engineering design, magnetics, electronic hardware, embedded firmware, data engineering / data science, and infrastructure software. MagCanica is in a growth stage and is establishing best practices and systems associated with project and program management to allow for continued growth, such that the candidate is expected to help MagCanica continue to develop and implement these practices and supporting tools. The specific tasks and responsibilities the MagCanica Project Manager will be responsible for carrying out are listed below:

The Type of Person We Are Looking For
We are looking for self‐motivated candidates who have a high degree of self‐discipline and initiative and a “can do” attitude with the ability to have a real impact on our engineering team’s efficiency and workflow. The successful candidate should be comfortable working with mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and software engineers with varied backgrounds, styles, and roles. The candidate will be a motivated self‐starter who can work under a constantly changing timeline due to our heavy involvement in the motorsport sector and our aggressive technology development strategy. The key attributes of a successful Project Manager at MagCanica are a combination of organizational and communication skills, and the right balance of relying on software tools and documentation on the one hand, and face‐to‐face interactions with team members (both 1‐on‐1 and in groups), on the other.
More broadly, as MagCanica is a growing company that is still in the initial stages of establishing a formal project management structure, we need someone who can be flexible and adapt to our culture while helping to integrate effective project management practices they may have developed elsewhere to help take our company to the next level organizationally. The successful candidate will be an individual who has very high personal standards, a team player with a solution‐oriented approach, and someone who can derive genuine satisfaction from contributing to a high‐performance team.
COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
MagCanica offers a very competitive compensation package including base salary, a discretionary yearly performance‐based bonus, yearly discretionary merit raise, 3 weeks of paid vacation, and 10 paid holidays per year. Benefits include medical, dental, workers’ compensation, disability, and life insurance as well as a 401K program with matching and a flexible spending account (FSA) plan. The Company works hard to allow employees the greatest possible personal flexibility while achieving our overall engineering and business objectives.
