  • Create and maintain Program Pages inline with the standard R&D Ops template
  • Own systems for project documentation, status tracking, portfolios, dashboards and communication between project stakeholders to ensure overall program health
  • Establish, drive and continuously improve standards for processes that promote a high standard for product delivery and efficiency of teams
  • Contribute to an environment that's conducive to a great execution culture and removes obstacles to project completion
  • Work closely with leadership and operational teams on priority and productivity process improvements that aid in delivering value faster with greater accuracy and confidence

  • Knowledge of distributed software architecture and cloud technologies
  • Familiarity with HashiCorp products
