Thanks so much for applying for this position! I enjoyed listening to the recording.
Among the responsibilities for a technical project manager will be to oversee and facilitate growth of volunteer project management resources within the OpenMRS community. Our hope is, by freeing up a strong technical project manager’s time to focus on OpenMRS community needs, she will multiply her impact by serving as a point of contact & coordinator for other talented project managers and business analysts who want to volunteer their time for the community. Currently, it’s difficult for such volunteers to find a way to engage with the community when there isn’t a clear point of entry for them and someone to welcome & guide them. In short, we hope our investment in one dedicated person will seed a larger group of volunteer effort.
FYI – if you haven’t heard, we have a weekly project management call, where several volunteers meet weekly to track active projects and do our best to provide some project management for the community to anticipate & address problems as well as assist the community in connecting & directing development efforts. A technical project manager would be a welcome addition and could evolve toward leading those efforts.
