Organization Overview

Eden I & R, Inc. envisions a community empowered with information and connected to resources, so that all people obtain health, happiness, hope, and improved livelihoods.

Mission Statement

Since 1976, Eden I&R has been successfully fulfilling its mission of “linking people and resources” by consistently and creatively responding to the community’s changing needs. The agency’s services are the result of collaborations that depend on the work of hundreds of community-based organizations. Because no other centralized source for health, housing, and human services information exists anywhere else in Alameda County, Eden I&R has become a critical resource for thousands of at-risk individuals, such as youth, non-English speakers, the economically disadvantaged, people living with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence survivors, the elderly, disabled, the homeless, and human service agencies seeking services or housing for their clients.

Position Overview

The Project Manager, Business Systems (PM) will lead strategic, creative, and innovative system enhancements to support the mission of linking people and resources.

Operating within a framework of connection, relationship building, growth, and continuous improvement, the PM will understand the technical aspects of each system as well as the usage and practical process requirements.

The PM will identify risks, manage project schedules, and communicate clearly across the organization, while understanding the impact of the systems and processes.

The PM is responsible for maintaining systems required for agency programmatic activities as well as assessing and implementing new technologies.

The PM will leverage a combination of technical knowledge, organizational skills, prioritization, relationship, and communication skills, the ability to design and execute processes, as well as collaborate with (and train) cross-functional teams.

The PM is also the liaison for technology vendors and database partners.

The PM is a member of the IT/Data team and reports to the Deputy Director.
