Project Manager

Description

Mar-Kov Computer Systems is looking for a Production or Plant Manager currently working in a manufacturing facility producing Cosmetics, Pharma, Food, Nutraceuticals, Paint or other process manufacturing organization.

Mar-Kov is looking for a Plant Manager ready for a change. Working at Mar-Kov will provide great pay, work-life balance, travel opportunities, and chance for growth compared to working at a manufacturing facility.

Mar-Kov is a growing software company, providing focused applications for our customers in process manufacturing industries such as Cosmetics, Pharma, Food, Nutraceuticals, Paint, and others. Your previous experience in these industries will be a great asset in this role.

Mar-Kov’s software applications help its customers plan and execute operations at production facilities.

Strong customer projects are the lifeblood of our business, and the project manager is the key to successful rollouts, repeat business, and future referrals. As Mar-Kov’s face to the customer throughout the implementation process your preparation and desire to deliver will ensure a thrilled client.

The ideal candidate will take a leadership position on customer implementation/rollouts. Developing and improving Mar-Kov processes and materials will be a central part of this role. You will need to deploy your abilities to think critically and independently to take ownership of Mar-Kov’s deployment workflows.

You will develop a deep understanding of Mar-Kov’s product, and will develop and deliver focused training to our customers as they integrate Mar-Kov software into their daily operation.

You will travel regularly to visit our customers’ sites worldwide (primarily in the USA and Canada) to better understand their needs, train them on system functions, and facilitate the implementation process.

The successful candidate thrives on both the technical and interpersonal aspects involved in working with clients to make their applications “come alive”. Navigating formal and informal hierarchies within the customer organization will be a requirement to succeed.

You will also work as a part of Mar-Kov’s technical team in a variety of capacities including defining new customer requirements and testing custom application components built to a client’s need.

The project manager works closely with Mar-Kov development, support and sales teams and clients. The candidate will be responsible for carrying out software implementation projects, including planning, preparation, execution, follow-up support and training.

This position provides a great opportunity for future growth. Success in this role will result in the opportunity to play a leadership role at Mar-Kov.
