Freelance Technical Project Manager ERP (f/m/d)

full-time Spark Networks Berlin

PASSION for tech; it’s something many companies speak about, but at Spark Networks, we put those words into action! We were one of the earliest startups in Berlin from the ‘new wave’ of tech startups. In fact, we’re practically startup royalty - successful (and profitable) with fun plans for expansion.

Spark Networks’ brands are on the ‘serious dating’ side of the spectrum of dating platforms (an antidote to the casual hookup brands flooding the market). Elite Singles, eDarling, Christian Mingle, jDate, and Attractive World are our main brands aimed at professionals looking for love.

So; want to make a difference in the lives of millions of singles? Are you interested in joining an ambitious and inclusive workplace?

The tech teams are continually striving for the highest quality, continuous deployment solutions. We work in small, focussed, cross-functional teams using bits of Scrum, Kanban, and a smidge of Extreme Programming.
