As a Project Manager, you’re a motivated, result driven individual with an exceptional track record of accelerating decisions to ensure goals are achieved. You have an appreciation for and strong understanding of lean, agile and user-centered design values, principles, and practices. You’re innovative in how to move extremely busy people swiftly to decision and action, and know meetings are sometimes-- but not always-- the answer. You’re inspired by Toyota Kata and have experience in continuous improvement; you get excited by achieving small, measured wins to deliver larger impacts over time, and know how to help teams do this.

You are also excited by the mission and organizational value that technology can unlock. You thrive in a complex ecosystem, collecting, sharing, and synthesizing input from many directions and enabling your organization to continuously deliver customer value. You love working with effective teams and driving excellence in practice. You are inspired by the opportunity to help customers and partners modernize their in-house software development capabilities. You bring humility, empathy, and a learning mindset to everything you do. You believe in doing the right thing and doing what works.

You’ll also support our Services Strategy team in other ways as needed, bringing your strengths in project management and operations to bear on our work to deliver on our strategy and ensure we’re succeeding for customers.

Ensuring we have a strong system in place for this, and that it successfully scales.
  • Enablement. Ensuring that we are effectively training people-- on-staff consultants, partners-- to successfully deliver services, ensuring sellers are effectively prepared to sell them, and applying a user-centered approach to how we iterate. This involves strong partnership with a number of teams, internally.
  • Communications: Ensuring those stakeholders who stand to benefit from learnings through Solution Discovery-- particularly, but not exclusively, members of Product & Services-- are always aware of important patterns and insights, and are creating experiments to act on them as needed. Creating transparency with respect to what we do.
