Senior Program Manager Azul Systems
Are you passionate about releasing high quality software that is deployed to solve mission-critical business problems? Do you like working with multiple cross-functional disciplines to effectively launch a major software release? Do you like hands-on work using the software products that you help successfully introduce into the field? If yes, then Azul Systems is a great place for you to work.
To be successful, you must be a highly collaborative problem solver who demonstrates strong ownership/commitment, develops stellar cross functional relationships, and uses technical skills and business acumen to plan and deliver complex large-scale software projects. Azul is a growing and fast-paced company, and thus demands strong leaders who thrive in a dynamic environment.
As a Program Manager at Azul, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary software projects using your technical and business expertise. You gather requirements, formulate the scope of the project and success criteria, and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes managing product and project schedules, identifying risks and dependencies and clearly communicating them to project stakeholders, leading the creation of project plans, developing and tracking release milestones and schedules for the many moving parts that need to come together, and driving all scheduling, budgetary and quality related requirements to closure. You're equally at home explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in product development with engineers. You will be central to the operations of the cross-functional team - on a daily basis you will be responsible for working with and coordinating software engineering teams (development, quality, customer support), marketing, documentation, sales and field consultants to orchestrate and lead the team through major and minor software release cycles. You will participate in setting strategy and goals, translating the goals into day-to-day activities and focuses for the team, as well as drive internal process improvements across multiple teams and functions.
