As an Implementation Project Manager, you would be expected to:

* Serve as the primary point of contact for customers during their implementation of the products Equinox supports.

* Monitor project activities to ensure that implementation deadlines are being met.
* Advise customers on how to configure the products we support to suit their needs and policies.

* Assist our customers with learning how to effectively use the software and answer their questions.

Equinox offers fantastic benefits such as family health, dental, and vision insurance, fully paid for by the company. We also provide a 401k plan and great colleagues to work with.
