Opportunity Overview

Reporting to the VP of Engineering, the Director of Program Management is a critical member of the senior leadership team and helps drive organizational excellence across teams and departments. This role will develop and refine processes, manage and develop teams in San Diego and Tucson, partner with stakeholders to define and align priorities, and manage the progress and communication of the organization's project portfolio.

This role requires a diverse skill set: someone with only a software or hardware program management background will not be successful. The ability to plan as well as execute, the ability to cultivate strong, integrity-based relationships, the ability and willingness to learn new things, and a commitment to transparency are all required. TuSimple is pragmatic and practical: come prepared to deliver results rather than argue management philosophies.

  • Key collaborator with functional leaders in delivering functional excellence; participates in performance management of key contributors
  • Works with vendors and OEMs to negotiate SoWs and project plans
  • Analyzes key data to design and deploy process improvements across the company, ensure consistent alignment of effort, and maximize efficiencies across projects
  • Identifies and solves for evolving gaps and emerging needs in skills, process capabilities, and capacity to support sustained long-term business growth
  • Works across organizational boundaries inside and outside of TuSimple, leading teams in building trust, collaboration, and breaking down barriers
  • Manage project risks, develop mitigation plans and resolve problems impacting project completion, proactively resolving project issues, and escalating to management when necessary

  • At least 5-10 years' experience of direct program management experience developing complex schedules, coordinating cross-functional teams, and leading execution
