SANTIUM IS A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We work with great people.  Our culture is energetic, fast-paced and built on a tight teamwork grid.  We employ experienced business pros, key opinion leaders, scientists, academics, students, freelancers, test developers, publishers, translators etc.  Some work right here or down the street, and some work from other parts of the world, across different time zones, from different cultures and speak other languages. Unity, passion for what we do, and dedication to exceed expectations is what makes our customers return. 

Since every project we work on has its unique requirements, we create unique teams for each and every one.  Every team is made up of talented people who have proven themselves as outstanding performers in their area of specialty, creating a high sense of ownership in every team.  No compromise.

FULL-TIME POSITIONS

SR. PROJECT MANAGER – CLINICAL ASSESSMENT TRANSLATION & LOCALIZATION

The Sr. Project Manager supports the Director of Language Services.  In this role, you must have strong focus on customer service to external customers and internal teammates.  You will be responsible for managing challenging translations and trans-adaptations of neuropsychological and neurodevelopmental tests designed for children and adults.  The way we do translations is unlike translation agencies.  Our approach to translations is from a psychometric development perspective.  Some of these tests are highly complex in structure and will require you to ensure that multiple components of the same product are consistent in translated content.  Then, the translations must be thoroughly vetted for practical and/or clinical usability in the target language.

As the Sr. Project Manager, you will be the primary point of contact for project status updates for our customers. You will be expected to source qualified translators, provide CAT Tool packages with components that are inter-dependent in content, manage data collection and graphic design vendors, monitor progress, lead resolution of issues, provide timely communication to all relevant stakeholders and carefully document adaptations of original content.  You will be also expected to mentor your project teams and assist with training Jr. Project Managers and Coordinators.

As the ideal candidate, you’re not afraid of a steep learning curve, love to learn skills from other disciplines, you thrive on improving your knowledge and skill, and to ensure that your project teams are developing theirs with you.    

Responsibilities: 

  • Highly competent in relaying scope of work, complexity, timelines, delegation of tasks and project-specific translation methodology to project teammates / vendors.

  • Adhering to key customers’ and project processes.
  • Monitor and control project budgets and any changes in scope.
  • Conduct weekly risk assessments posing barriers to timely delivery that are based on project progress and issues.
  • Liaising with and supporting the requirements of data collection vendors to maintain project timelines.
  • Detailed documentation and file organization of all project related materials.
  • Work closely with the Director of Language Services on identifying area for improvement/change and assist with development of improved processes and supporting strategies.
  • Provide clear and consistent communication with strong attention to service with Clients, and internal production teams.
  • Address any project issues and handle project escalations.
  • Monitoring and mentoring of any assigned Project Coordinators.

Requirements: 

  • A certificate in Project Management methodologies is preferred (e.g., PMP)

Working at Santium – We are a rapidly growing Canadian company with roots in psychometrics research and data collection.  Translations happened because it made sense for us to translate what we were testing, subsequently adapting and very often correcting and/or substantially revising.  We still work with a carefully select group of agencies but prefer to work with individual translators and clinicians whom we know and whose skills and knowledge we respect and trust. Translations are only as good as its translators.

Our core data collection teams are in Australia, China, India, South Africa, Western and Central Europe, South America, North America and India.  Our clinician networks consist of over 300 subject matter experts in pediatric and adult neuropsychology and speech-language pathology.      

We love people with the entrepreneurial spirit and give them room to blossom and shine.  Santium will be a great match for you, if you’re looking to work with a growing team of science-minded nerds who find translation of adaptation of medical and neuropsych tests absolutely fascinating!
