Job Description

KUNGFU.AI is the leading AI consultancy. We partner with clients to realize the real business value or Artificial Intelligence to help them compete and lead in the age of AI. We provide strategy, engineering, and operations services to achieve AI-centric transformation.

From sparking big ideas to delivering practical solutions, we help our clients unlock the business value of AI. We guide our customers on their AI journey, exploring a world of possibilities and then grounding that with a roadmap and practical deliverables that are embedded into their products and processes. Our innovative engineers continually research the latest AI techniques. We use that knowledge to build bespoke AI solutions for customers that multiply their business value.

Outside of our virtual walls we are painters, foodies, cocktail connoisseurs, musicians, crossword-doers, athletes, dungeon masters, non-profit board members, and more. We’d welcome the opportunity to meet you.

As a Project Manager at KUNGFU.AI you will work with a delivery team of Machine Learning Engineers, Data Scientists, Software Engineers, and AI Strategists to successfully deliver projects to our clients.

Here's what you'll be doing:

  • Project management processes including generating estimates, creating resource plans, assisting with statements of work, monitoring project status (scope, schedule, budget), managing personnel, managing risks, and obtaining deliverable acceptance
  • Creating project budgets, burn reports, forecasts, and invoicing documents
  • Working with a Client Partner and a Director of Engineering or Strategy Lead to manage client expectations, track dependencies, and resolve issue escalations
  • Training staff, clients, and new talent on our methodology and engagement models
  • Championing continuous improvement efforts including cross-training, knowledge sharing, and distribution of lessons learned within the Delivery Management team and throughout the organization
  • Working with project delivery leads in ensuring the quality of the deliverables meets client expectations
  • Managing client deliverable acceptance, project closure, and post-delivery client support
  • Supporting business development by ensuring SOWs are feasible and achievable while protecting the delivery team’s work/life balance
  • Tracking project financial performance against baseline expectations on assigned projects and client deliveries

What we're looking for:

  • A deep understanding of the software development life cycle and best practices in terms of processes, tools, and methodologies
  • A few years of experience in a client-facing role in a professional services organization or consulting agency
  • Someone who has successfully delivered multiple projects from ideation and initiation (think SOWs and work orders) through final delivery and client acceptance
  • Someone who is detail-oriented and able to handle multiple simultaneous engagements. (Note: We try to limit the number of simultaneous projects to around 3 per Project Manager)
  • Comfort with ambiguity, multiple concurrent projects, and experimental/proof of concept work as a norm
  • An ability to build strong relationships, drive conversations in the right direction, and build consensus across teams with diverse skillsets and working styles
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills that are tailored to a wide range of technical and non-technical audiences
  • Familiarity with quality assurance, quality control, and information security best practices
  • A strong focus on efficiency and automation where appropriate
  • Experience with a variety of delivery methodologies. Each of our projects are quite unique to the client and to the AI solution being delivered, so we don’t prescribe one specific workflow
  • Someone who enjoys a startup environment and has a willingness to occasionally stretch beyond the responsibilities outlined in this job description when needed
  • Taking ownership over the things you build and being eager to learn new skills and share them with those around you
  • Someone who is proactive, collaborative, communicative and strongly believes in empowering those around them
  • Strong professional and academic credentials (PMP, CSM, or equivalent) are ideal but not required

What's in it for you?

This is a remote, full-time position. Compensation includes competitive salary, company stock grant, top (‘gold’) level of health, dental and vision insurance (KUNGFU.AI covers 100% of your premiums and 50% for any dependents), health and dependent flexible spending accounts, short- and long-term disability insurance, unlimited vacation (that you're encouraged to take), paid parental leave, and more. If this opportunity excites you, we can’t wait to meet you!

Note: Due to ITAR compliance and regulations we are only able to hire US Citizens and Green Card Holders.


We are committed to building an inclusive culture that’s professional and hardworking, while also fun, collaborative and open. We are proud to be the first company to take The Startup Diversity and Inclusion Pledge, which one of our co-founders started. We actively encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply. We believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce fosters more creative ideas, conversations, and results.

We also believe in using AI for Good in both our client projects and our corporate philanthropy, where we dedicate time to work on pro bono projects for the greater good.

We value passion, courage, and original thinking.
You should take ownership over the things you build and be eager to learn new skills.
You should have a passion for teamwork and making others around you successful.
You should be a self-starter and have a strong work ethic.
We are an early stage company, so we all perform work outside of our job description every day, and you should expect to be given and take opportunities to do the same.
