New Project Management Jobs in the Bay Area

Bay Area Project Manager

For better and worse, the Bay Area continues to reign as the global tech hub. But what has evolved in recent years is tech’s relationship to MBA graduates. MBAs were once personas non-grata in Silicon Valley. While newer startups won’t likely have a use for you, the big boys and girls of tech—the Slacks, Adobes, Twitters, Facebooks, Googles, Apples, etc.—certainly do. This week is focused on opportunities that allow MBA graduates to apply their PM skills to Bay Area tech.
