You will collaborate with Service Teams to deliver solutions that make efficient use of resources and technologies, identifying dependencies that need to be addressed within these regions. You will work with all stakeholders to develop schedules that ensure timely launch of services and feature. You will assess risks, anticipate issues, overcome technical obstacles, make difficult trade-off decisions, and balance business needs and technical constraints.
Successful candidates will have a strong program management background, be detail oriented, and have excellent problem-solving abilities.
