1. Cover letter example for Project Manager

Web, Mobile & Software Dev • Product Management
Hello sir

Thank you for providing such opportunity to help your team.

I have more than 10 years experience as software developer (PHP, .Net, DB designing), team building and leading, project managing.

I started my own team 6 year ago from 1 person me and now this team includes ~50 high qualified employees with very friendly bonds.

3-4 team members is a very good number to work effectively without any bureaucracy.

The biggest problem of small teams is that one person may do the same time N projects as a developer, PM and QA simultaneously. It always leads to mess.

I am sure that my experience can be beneficial for your team.

Small advice:
- separate duties: developers must do only development staff, QA - only test app, PM - only do management.
- use Trello instead of Asana - it is free and easy. I think it is even more useful to use simple Google Doc
- do not try organize everything
- all team members must have good relationships, no slaves and gods

I think that applying some improvements will take minimum time if your team wishes the same as you.

My rate as PM is 50$/h and I can do all stuff related organizing your work for free, because if you and your team trust me then this process will be easy and take less time, otherwise I cannot help.

Let have a free phone/Skype conversation and then decide about this job.

Have a nice day!!!
