Hi fishes 🐠 I’m looking to fill some skills gaps so I can pursue Technical Project Management roles.

What are some of the hard skills you think are necessary to know in these roles? (Python, SQL, etc)

Most of my Technical PM roles have been infrastructure related. So I’ve networking, server technology, virtualization, security, UC, etc.

Basic SQL can be helpful as you might get asked for number of x in the last month or the like. Don’t worry about python because you won’t work so low level.
You could familiarise yourself with file types as in how to utilise JSON or CSV so that you could work with that for instance in Excel. You should be proficient in JIRA and an Agile framework like scrum. Modelling skills could be useful like BPMN or being able to read UML class diagrams.
It might be useful to get a basic understanding of Design patterns / architectural principles. That’s in essence understanding the components of a system, dependencies. Understanding the bigger picture will make your life easier when you need to understand, estimate, or justify problems that will occur during development.
I can also recommend you to look at CI/CD pipelines and how an ideal release process looks like. In reality it’s often not that ideal and you will hear tech staff criticising while business is pushing back there is no resource for this. Finding the balance is key and as you call yourself project facilitator - I love this - you will be appreciated by your empathy for technical challenges

Thank you! Good to know!

Get certified as a Scrum Master or RTE. You don’t need coding experience.

I pay 125-165 depending on skills. You must have experience leading dev teams, however.

Thanks for the info! I have CSM, definitely looking to get RTE in the future

For context, I have 4 years of experience in a hospital blood bank and am a certified Medical Laboratory Technologist. I was thinking in the 65-70k range, but the recruiter made it seem like that was easily attainable so I’m worried I’m asking too low. Would 75-80k be do-able?
