About the role: 

As a Senior Technical Program Manager (TPM), you’ll work hands on with one or more engineering teams to plan and execute business initiatives, feature/product launches and platform improvements. You will help bridge the gap between Product and Engineering, empowering teams to bring complex ideas to life.

  • Coordinate communication across multiple teams and projects

 

You are: 

  • An excellent communicator: you are able to break down complex technical issues and share with stakeholders from across the business
  • Comfortable discussing technical details of projects with squad leads and senior developers
  • A structured thinker who can quickly understand a problem, identify a solution and envision a path to implementing it
  • Keen on owning and solving process issues that hinder teams from delivering their best work

 

You have: 

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Business, or, equivalent
  • 5+ years of working experience in an agile software development team as a technical project/program manager, delivery lead, or scrum master
  • Worked with a range of agile frameworks, such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, and Scrumban
  • Experience using delivery metrics (Little’s Law, Kanban, Accelerate’s Four Key Metrics) to plan projects, surface and fix problems with software delivery.
  • Experience with documentation and work tracking tools like: Confluence, GitLab, JIRA
  • Experience with writing unit/integration/function test cases, as well as with formalized testing methodologies (i.e. TDD, BDD, DDD)
  • Exposure to relational databases (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL), and comfortable with running simple queries to quickly pull insights from our data warehouse

 

You’ll get …

  • Competitive Salary & 401k company match that vests immediately upon participation
  • Generous parental leave of 16 weeks & PTO policy
  • $0 monthly premium and other flexible health plans effective first day of employment
  • 75% discount on your subscription to HelloFresh (as well as other product initiatives)
