Project Manager

Igalia is looking for a project manager to join us. This person will play an important role in the company, joining our project teams and helping them to be successful by achieving both in our own goals and the goals of our customers.

Job position description

Igalia is a highly dynamic company where every employee has the chance to develop new skills over time. The main tasks for this position are:

  • Elaborate project proposals. The project manager will need to understand client needs, identify suitable engineers, negotiate internally to build the right team, write high-quality statements of work and define contracts.

  • Monitor and control the cost and effort devoted in on-going projects.
  • Detect risks and handle them appropriately.
  • Supervise and participate in all project communications as a facilitator: both internal communications between project members and external communications with customers.
  • Understand technical details in order to help the project team to make the best decisions.


There are multiple professional paths which qualify for this position and there are not mandatory requirements to apply. However, we consider that having project management knowledge, a technical background in software development and being familiar with open-source and its dynamics is valuable for the kind of project management we need to do at Igalia.

Other skills which are useful in this position are:

  • Leadership.
  • Social skills.
  • Communication and presentation skills in both written and spoken English.
  • Capacity and enthusiasm to learn complex domains.
  • Capacity for synthesis and analysis.
  • Organizational skills.
  • Ability to manage pressure and stress.
  • Understanding of the IT market.
