Senior Technical Project Manager
- Be an agile expert: as the Senior Technical Project Manager / Scrum Master (TPM), you will use agile and traditional project manager techniques to scope, plan, budget, and resource programmes and projects, to drive the team to successful delivery.
- Be a project wrangler: you will be responsible for planning programmes and projects, setting delivery expectations, and resetting them where necessary. You will remove blockers and encourage sensible prioritization of tasks and goals within the teams, and ensure projects are run efficiently and on time. You will be a single point of contact for others outside of the technology team and be able to triage at the drop of a hat.
- Be a team builder: you will work to foster solid agile practices and processes by working with the engineering team; identifying and implementing initiatives that are aimed at further developing team practices.
- Be a collaborator: you will work with all stakeholders to help prioritise, estimate, identify and manage risks and dependencies of the project, as well as provide ongoing status updates, through accurate reporting and verbal/written communication. Your understanding of the domain and current issues will be essential in determining longer term prioritization. You should have a well-honed ability to communicate technical issues to someone non-technical.
