Background

We’re a 20+ person custom software development firm and have been in business for 15 years. We have a loyal and growing customer base who range from single person startups to large enterprises. We value technical talent and pride ourselves on our smarts and our ability to help grow each other as professionals.

This is a great opportunity to become an IT Project Manager. Perfect for those starting out or switching careers. Enjoy a fun, relaxed and geeky environment, with interesting projects, real career growth opportunities and active mentoring.

The Role & Benefits

What professional skills do you need to get the job? 

Business Analysis – capacity to convert a user’s requirements into a logical set of instructions for a developer to build. This can include considering both interface layouts as well as data structures.

Tech Savvy – you’ll have a reasonable understanding of software development.

Scope & Budget Management – this one is tough (even for pro’s), but you’ll be up for the challenge of managing a scope of work to keep it within a budget. You’ll relate well to clients, be friendly but firm and good at managing expectations.

What personal skills do you need to get the job?

Friendly – no jerks please, you’ll be generally likeable.

Well Organised – you’ll be good with details.

High Emotional Intelligence – most of our clients are great, but when the need arises you’ll be able to work with life’s more challenging characters.

Curiosity – the changing world of technology will interest you, not scare you.

Ownership – you’ll take ownership of issues and see your projects through.

Alliance Software values diversity and is an equal opportunity employer

Salary

70K base and $50/hour paid overtime plus super.

How does paid overtime work?

Yep – this is unusual. Everyone here gets automatic paid overtime. You’ll be expected to work a minimum 6.5 productive hours per day. If you do more, you’ll be paid overtime monthly.

For example, assume you work an average of 8 productive hours per day – you would earn $16,875 in overtime payments ($50 per hour x 1.5 hours x 5 days x 45 weeks at work per year). This would take your salary to $86,875 + super (or gross $93K).

Please note – overtime requests are rare, but there’s typically plenty to be done if you want to. You can do as many or as few bonus hours as you like (current staff really like this).

Working with us

Alliance Software is a custom web and mobile application development business. We’re also the founder of two successful tech startups. We have an engaged customer base of well funded startups and mid tier corporates.

The one common groan is that we require staff to fill in time cards via an online system. This lets us pay overtime and track time worked on projects.
