Delivery Manager

Job description

Work for a company that cares about the humans behind the tech.

At Riverr we are advocates for using product thinking, design, and technology to reshape the human experience for good.

We believe Riverr people should do what they love and love what they do. So we invest in the vigorous innovators, technical intellectuals, creative thinkers and architects of change - those passionate about creating user centred, beautiful digital experiences using the latest and best technology. Riverr work together with Studio Blup and Verj, as part of Lab Agency group.

Our award-winning team of creative, design, technology and strategy specialists enjoy a number of benefits, including flexible working options including a 4 day work week, remote working for that ultimate work-life-balance, Private Medical Cover through Aviva, 28 days annual leave each year, a day off for your birthday and an annual training budget to invest in your personal development!


We are looking for an experienced Delivery Manager to help lead some of our exciting and complex projects. Sitting at the heart of the project team, you will keep the focus and momentum going while enabling a team of skilled people to deliver value. As a Delivery Manager you will be a passionate facilitator, ensuring project success in terms of time, cost, quality.

You will work alongside enthusiastic, Product, Design and Technical teams who are not afraid to push boundaries and get out of their comfort zones.

We are looking for a passionate Delivery Manager who remains motivated throughout the duration of the project, and is able to reliably deliver work of an outstanding quality. Our Delivery Managers are personable, able to form genuine relationships with internal and external team members. Your role will be a balancing act – able to think strategically to support clients and their product roadmaps, while also enjoying geeking-out around a whiteboard with your talented, multidisciplinary project team to come up with unique and boundary-pushing solutions which delight customers and keep Riverr at the forefront of agency delivery.

Who you are:

  • An experienced digital agency delivery manager
  • A passionate individual with a contagiously positive attitude, which motivates and influences others
  • A balanced and unflappable person, who can manage multiple work streams at once and responds positively to curve-balls
  • An action-oriented individual who pushes progress forward
  • A confident facilitator who is able to ask challenging questions to get to the best solution for all parties
  • An empathetic team member who is interested in others’ motivations and challenges

What you’ll bring to the team:

  • An adaptive and flexible approach to delivery management which is strengthened by experience delivering using various methodologies, including waterfall and agile
  • Ideally you would have some experience working as a Scrum Master
  • Encourage and enable collaboration throughout project teams
  • Ability to own your clients and projects – being an oracle of knowledge for all key project information
  • A thorough understanding of the software development lifecycle, with the ability to hold your own in some technical conversations
  • Experience of working with global team members, empowering international contributors by remaining mindful and respectful of cultural differences
  • A pragmatic approach to the administrative side of project management, ensuring sufficient documentation which protects the project without it becoming overbearing

What you’ll do:

  • Deliver product roadmaps for clients, with a focus on driving iterative delivery and long term partnership.
  • Own the end-to-end delivery or interesting and complex digital projects, including budget management and management of all stakeholders.
  • Work with internal teams to help define project scopes, resource requirements and cost estimates for projects.
  • Be the go-to person for your client, creating partnerships founded on trust, quality, and reliability.
  • Be the hub of communication for the project - in regular contact with internal and external team members engaged in delivering the project.
  • Provide leadership and guidance to your project team, but also to your clients. Advise on the best strategy for them to suit their budgets and needs.
  • Work closely with Client Partners to actively grow client accounts, identifying new opportunities to support client roadmaps and escalating where necessary.
  • Organise and lead both internal and external meetings with a range of stakeholders of all seniority levels.
  • Use various tools to plan, run, and track projects.

Do you have a curious growth mindset, and are you interested in being part of our team? Apply now!

Research has shown that some under-represented groups in the digital industry tend to apply only if they meet every single requirement. Here at Riverr and LAB Group, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, and this is at the heart of what we value as an organisation. We encourage you to apply even if you do not think you tick all the boxes of the job description. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles! Our People team are happy to support with any reasonable adjustments that are needed within the recruitment process, so please do flag if you need any additional support. Your information will be kept confidential according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We’re a group of agencies with a simple mission: use pioneering research into human behaviour to advance brands in a way that digital and creativity alone cannot do
