Project Manager Aventura
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Company Overview:
Aventura. We?re a rowdy family of technology buffs passionate about solving an enormous problem in hospitals: clinical computing isn?t working for clinicians. Doctors and nurses are going nuts because their key software is slow as molasses and can?t even follow them around. What they need is what we?ve got?a totally new architecture based on one idea: technology should work for people, not the other way around. We have an awesome leader, a team that?s burning it at both ends for stuff they really believe in, and insanely happy customers. Only one problem: you?re not here.
What we?re looking for:
This isn?t your father?s day job. For starters, we want personality. We want innovative thinking. We want personality. We want people who make it their business to bring some life to the party. Oh, and a superhero?s mix of humor, creative thinking, passion, tech savvy, and actually caring about making a difference in the lives of people.
