GoMage is growing into the top Magento agency in the world with clients in the US, Australia and countries of Western Europe.

🔸What is the role of a PM in your company?
Project Managers are not mere executors, but the decision-makers ready to take ownership of the project and drive its success. Our PMs are actively involved in clients’ and company processes: participate in job interviews of new developers (to scan their soft skills), decide on the project methodology, help with the self-development plans for their teammates, and much more.
🔸What is the usual project size?
Our clients are mostly medium to large/enterprise-level eCommerce companies. We usually do PWA or custom Magento development, migration and optimization for wholesale, global online marketplaces and large online retail stores.
Just to give you an idea of our clients, take a look at this case study for a successful Print on Demand business: www.gomage.com/case-study/xprint. We have more than 30 million SKUs flowing within this Magento instance at the moment, while the concurrency, usability, and content delivery speed is utmost impressive.
In short, you will be proud of the projects you manage.
🔸What is the size of a team I’ll manage?
This one depends on your skills and the project requirements, but taking into account that we deal with big and long-lasting projects, the teams usually consist of 2-4 backend developers, 1-3 frontend developers, 1-2 QAs, Project Manager + Project Coordinator, and DevOps.
The GoMage development department is also divided into three different divisions. This approach helps us bring structure and clarity to the heart of our processes.
🔸How many projects does a PM handle at once?
1-3 depending on the size and complexity of the projects, but there can be more if a Project Manager plays the role of a Program Manager having several projects of one account.
🔸What methodology do you use?
As a PM you define the best Agile methodology that fits your project. We do not build processes just for the sake of processes. Each project requires a tailored approach and you choose the methodology depending on the specs and requirements.
🔸How can I develop as a professional in your company?
Each of our Project Managers has a dedicated self-development plan, including certifications and courses they complete at the company’s expense. For example, our PMs pass Adobe Certification exams and constantly improve their project management skills by taking various online courses. The short-term development plan is defined starting from the trial period, and a long-term plan is set up for every PM after they successfully pass it.
We pride ourselves on growing true team and company leaders since a PM is actively engaged in each project. You will grow your expertise and will be joyful at adding GoMage clients to your portfolio.
🔸How would you describe your current PM team?
PM Office is a close-knit team ready to have each other’s back and provide personal support whenever needed. Such a friendly attitude inspires them on a daily basis. On Slack, we have dedicated chats for PMs, e.g., “PM talks” where our experts share experience, useful resources and discuss different client cases. So, you are never alone with your work issues. They act as one single team, at all times, as our belief is — only teamwork makes success.
