If you have strong program management skills and enjoy being part of a team building web-based UI’s on a modern web stack, this team is the place for you.

You will be asked to draw on your industry expertise and agile knowledge to increase the effectiveness of existing solutions and help build new ones to drive scale and efficiency throughout the organization.

Working with our team requires a unique blend of business acumen and technical skills demonstrated through the ability to translate stakeholder problems into actionable roadmaps and backlogs.

  • Communicate status, risks with resolution plan, upcoming milestones, and recent releases to leadership teams
  • Manage resolution of urgent engineering issues while communicating changes to business stakeholders

Who Are You

  • A high level of initiative, passion, and desire to create a world-class user experience for customers
  • A demonstrated experience driving agile software development with engineering, quality assurance, and functional teams
