  • Proactively assess and minimize program risk while working with teams and stakeholders to anticipate and remove roadblocks
  • Clearly and accurately communicate program status, issues, dependencies and risks to leadership and other program stakeholders beyond Product & Engineering
  • Coach teams throughout the program’s lifecycle, resolving conflicts and enabling a healthy, trusting collaboration

  • You’re an excellent self-starter with a track record of seamless execution on complex programs or projects across multiple teams and departments with minimal guidance
  • Proven success in driving results on time, influencing others, and cross-functional team interaction to resolve conflicts
  • Excellent problem solving, time and risk management, and tactical thinking skills with an eye for details but as well for the big picture
  • You’ve got a deep people focus, you care for healthy teams, recognize, motivate and empower them through coaching best practices
  • A profound understanding how technology can help drive business outcomes and enhance customer satisfaction
  • Great presentation and communication skills in written and spoken English (native speaker or level C1 on a CEFR scale)
