We are looking for a Senior Project Manager to join our growing team delivering projects within the Business Program Management team. The Project Manager will lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish – working with stakeholders to develop plans, manage project schedules, identify risks, and communicate with cross-functional partners. The ideal candidate will have strong organizational, communication and analytical skills; the ability to drive decision making while challenging the status quo; and experience delivering programs that have significant impact across the wider organization. The role will report to the Senior Program Manager, P&I, with significant exposure across FanDuel Group, as well as to the broader global company (Flutter Entertainment).


Everyone on our team has a part to play

  • Define project tasks and resource requirements

  • Assemble and coordinate multi-disciplinary, and potentially geographically dispersed, teams

  • Track project milestones and deliverables, and report status updates

  • Identify risks that would prevent the timely delivery of projects and develop solutions to mitigate the risks

  • Provide direction and support to project teams

  • Identify decisions or trade-offs that need to be made to ensure successful delivery of solutions on time

  • Work with stakeholders to manage expectations and ensure clear and precise delivery of solutions

  • Work as part of a multi-skilled team (including operations, regulators, product managers)

  • Manage throughput of delivery from third party delivery teams and align those with internal team output where required

  • Coordinate geographically dispersed teams (internationally)

  • Work with multiple stakeholders to manage expectations and ensure clear and precise delivery of products to market

  • Work with both waterfall and agile methodologies to deliver projects

  • Be trusted to use whatever project management tools are appropriate for the situation


What we're looking for in our next teammate

  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience in project management, strategy, or business operations ideally at a technology, sports, or media company

  • Organized and transparent with regards to plans, milestones, and deliverables

  • Self-motivated, proactive, and able to work under minimal supervision at detailed levels while taking account of interdependencies at higher levels

  • Demonstrates a bias for action, can deliver in an agile environment, and has a record of accomplishment of success

  • Good relationship manager and negotiator, able to build agreements with business stakeholders

  • Ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously and determine priorities

  • Ability to influence others without formal authority

  • Ability to motivate potentially large and diverse teams from across the business and external stakeholders and create effective teams

  • Experience of working with distributed teams

  • Passionate about being part of a culture that builds and enables high performing multi-disciplinary teams
