Our ideal candidate will have a strong PMT/TPM background, with demonstrated experience leading large cross-organizational software development projects, and will have a deep technical background in current web and micro-service technologies.

As a TPM you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate and make tradeoffs, and balance business needs versus technical constraints. An ability to take large, complex projects and break them down into manageable pieces, help engineering leaders develop functional specifications, then deliver programs in a successful and timely manner is expected. Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are key factors to success in this role.
