TL:DR; We’re looking for a Junior Project Manager to help us develop, implement, and improve the way we deliver projects and solutions to our clients.

Our team is constantly growing so we would love to create and adhere to a strategic plan of project development. We’re hoping to find a Junior Project Manager with some experience and a lot of great ideas, to help take our processes to the next level. Our ideal candidate has some experience with the Project Manager position, preferably in the IT industry.


Ars Futura is a remote-friendly software design and development agency based in Zagreb. At the moment, we have 50-ish laid-back, charming, and dedicated people. They’re split into multi-disciplinary teams, working on long-term projects of all sizes, for clients mostly based in the United States.

Our team consists of designers and developers working for clients from various industries and, just to name a few, we’ve worked with MLG, Blizzard, and Harvard.

We’re proud of what we’re building and hope you’ll come and build with us!

📝 Creating and implementing processes

The exciting part of our Junior Project Manager position is the fact that you’ll be the one setting up the processes and making a timely release plan, given the constraints of the project. Like Neil Armstrong, you’ll be taking one small step for you, but one giant leap for our projects.

This means examining our current flow, exploring possible updates, making sure your ideas and suggestions are realized, and analyzing the results.

🙌 Taking responsibility for a project

Once the project is in your hands, it’s your responsibility to see what the client’s wishes are and what we can deliver. You have the roadmap of the project and you’re the one guiding the team, deciding what features are a priority and where our focus should lie. So, strategy, understanding and communicating with the client, and the execution of a project are on you.

🏃🏻 Running Scrum Sprints

It would be great if you had a good understanding of IT technologies and were familiar with agile frameworks such as Scrum. That way, we can rely on you to oversee our sprints. An added bonus is good knowledge and understanding of project management tools like Jira!

☎️ Collaborating with others

You will be working closely with our management team, our designers and developers, and finally, our clients. That is why we hope you have great communication skills, can adjust to changes in project scope and make good decisions on the fly, as well as have a good grasp of spoken and written English.
