SVT Robotics enables companies to integrate and deploy industrial robotics without the need for custom code. That’s a game changer in the world of robotics! It means we’ve cracked the code for our clients to rapidly deploy automation technology, transform their businesses, and adapt to an ever-changing market. Our one-of-a-kind SOFTBOT® Platform and talented team of builders makes it possible.

Headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia, SVT scours the country for best-in-class talent to add to our team of innovators, software experts, and robotics industry leaders committed to serving companies across the U.S. and Europe. Our employees show up every day ready to innovate and create with one goal in mind: success for our customers.

As demand for our platform continues to increase, so does SVT’s demand for high performers to help chart the course towards rapid growth and expansion. If you’re ready to revolutionize the future of industrial robotics and possess an entrepreneurial spirit and zeal for achieving results, we’d like to hear from you!

SVT’s Customer Journey extends to the left and well to the right of the point where a sale is executed. One of the first steps once a sale closes is deployment – where a solution is designed, implemented, and put into production at a customer site. This process is managed by our WMS project management team. As an integral member of the project execution team, the Technical PM must not only manage the plan and deliverables, but also be a key member of the solution team sharing WMS integration knowledge and experience. This means having an in-depth understanding of the work being undertaken in the project and contributing to the overall project success.

As a Technical Project Manager on the Project Management team, you’re responsible for owning our customer projects from cradle to grave. You’ll work with our sales teams to kick off the project. You’ll create the project schedule and milestones with the customer. You’ll work with our Solution Architects, Project Development, and Project Deployment teams to ensure each phase of the project is completed and ready for the next phase. You’ll communicate every detail of the deployment back to the customer, actioning feedback and escalating when necessary. When the project wraps up, you’ll get signoff from the customer, manage invoicing, and drive briefings and handoffs to the support team.

Our long term success with a customer, and their journey with SVT is dependent on a well-managed and executed deployment project. You’re the first face that the customer will see post-sale, and your professionalism will dictate the kind of relationship that we have with that customer for the remainder of their journey.

Please note that this role requires occasional travel (under 20%) and is fully remote.
