Senior Development Project Manager

Job description

One of the primary services Optiweb has to offer is developing online shops, web pages, and custom web applications which are built on the PIM, Shopware, Magento, and WordPress platforms and on various front-end and back-end tech-stacks. 


We have successfully developed over 50 e-commerce shops (such as iglusport.si, inpos.eu, kozelj.si, bigbang.si, mass.si, and intersport.hr), over 200 web pages (kras.si, delamaris.si, inotherm.si) and a handful of web applications (cooling configurator and PC building configurator for Corsair, a custom configurator for medical examination tables for Novak-M, etc.), from the very early stages of planning to the final stages of launching and maintaining them. In addition, we place special attention on building long-term relationships with our clients, resulting in constantly acquiring greater and more complex projects.


The task of developing a web page and online shop of course does not fall on only one person. On the contrary, it requires teamwork. The project manager plays a vital role in connecting the client and the internal team of experts working on the project (dev-ops, front- and back-end developers, designers, marketing, etc.).
