We have brought another Project Manager on board! Please join us in welcoming Jim to the WebDevStudios team! We’re excited about this addition to our rockstar project management team; please expect to see much more of Jim around these parts, and find out a little bit more about him below:
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
It is an adage Jim finds quite fitting for the past twenty-five years of his professional work experience. Jim’s career started out as a photographer in the early nineties. From the red carpet at the Academy Awards, to professional sporting events, to high profile weddings, Jim has covered it all.
A few years later, Jim had a career change to IT and expanded his knowledge by achieving certifications in A+, Network + (CompTia) and as a Microsoft Certified Professional, which eventually landed him a full-time position at The Boeing Company. During his fifteen years with Boeing, Jim was the Product and Project Manager for a creative services organization within the company and also provided product and project management support to organizations focusing on user experience and the functional and performance/scalability testing of homegrown and off the shelf applications. During his tenure, Jim also achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and a Master’s degree in Management of Information Systems, and was nominated for a week long leadership training program that was offered to less than 1,000 employees within the company each year.
In 2015, Jim switched from IT in aerospace to healthcare, becoming an Implementation Manager for an SMB that produced cloud-based credentialing systems to streamline and automate the credentialing process across the healthcare industry. In addition to managing the requirements, scope, and schedules for external projects, Jim was also asked to bring his corporate experience to the SMB by helping with the implementation of new processes and tools to standardize and streamline internal operations within the project management department.
Jim is looking forward to working with the team at WebDevStudios, as he sees it as a perfect match to both his creative and technical backgrounds. As a life long learner, Jim also has set his sights on two additional project management credentials – Certified Scrum Master from Scrum Alliance and Project Management Professional from the Project Management Institute. He cannot wait to bring his current and future skills to the team and build great things with great clients!
You can find more places to keep in touch with Jim on his team page.
And remember, we’re still hiring! If you or someone you know is front or back-end developer and a WordPress habit they can’t seem to kick, send them our way.
