The Role

The Technical Program Manager will manage cross-functional and internal technology programs, to ensure efficient project execution by monitoring program performance, give roadmap deliverable updates, and provide weekly program status updates. Reporting directly to the Director of Technical Program Management, you will serve as a liaison between cross-functional and technology stakeholders. You will create the program plan of record (POR), dependency matrices, identify potential risks and mitigation, support project team members by coordinating work, and remove obstacles/distractions to allow the team to focus on execution and delivery.

Why You'll Love This Role

You will get to work with leaders across Newsela, while managing key programs for our Technology organization that impact the solutions we use for our customers. You’ll be working alongside engineers, QA, product managers, IT and Infosec, who are also investigating and answering strategic questions that will impact key business decisions that ultimately help shape the future of K-12 education to deliver content at the just-right reading level. And because we're a technology company focused on improving the way students learn, you’ll be part of a Technology team culture that values learning, teaching, and questioning.

Why We’ll Love You

With 7+ years of SDLC project management experience, specifically with enterprise applications and internal technology projects, you have proven program and project management experience, knowledge of software delivery best practices, and the acumen to navigate business and technology challenges related to the delivery of technology projects or programs. You’re also well versed in SaaS, mobile and web applications, and can show demonstrated success in past or current jobs in delivery of project implementations. You have project credentials (ideally CSM or similar agile certification(s)), and are proficient in JIRA or similar software project applications to track tasks and develop reporting dashboards. You have also demonstrated success in breaking down complex technical problems and projects into manageable goals, aligned to broader department/company priorities. You’re also an excellent communicator who is able to translate complex, technical updates across various audiences, levels, and stakeholders.

About Newsela

One of the fastest growing tech companies in K-12 education, Newsela was founded on the principle that while every child may have unique learning preferences, they all deserve a rich learning experience that ignites a love of learning.
