 THE POSITION

Our roster has an opening with your name on it

The goal of the Technical Programs organisation is to own the delivery of critical technical programs that improve the state of our stack and the lives of our engineers.  We are not simply facilitators. We bring our technical depth to bear, helping to define complex architecture across multiple verticals, leading technical trade-off discussions, owning the schedule, milestones, and risks for our program, and being the single accountable owner for its successful delivery.

In this role, you will be a leader in the Engineering organisation accountable for the delivery of a critical program. Working within and outside of Engineering, you will define a “North Star” for the program, working across multiple verticals to manage dependencies, advocate for the prioritisation of this work, and track progress using data and key milestones. To be successful, you’ll need to understand not only the design considerations of a technical solution but the larger business context. You will be a subject matter expert for this program, partnering with product, commercial, and engineering to ensure we balance customer experience (quality, depth of features, etc.) with speed of delivery. You’ll work diligently to meet timelines, mitigate risks, and use data to drive your decisions. You’ll work independently to design decisions, and bring in Sr. Engineers for final input. Technical design experience, program management and executive presentation skills are critical.

THE GAME PLAN
Everyone on our team has a part to play

  • Own a large technical program with significant impact across the entire engineering organisation
  • Manage the entire lifecycle of a critical program, defining its “North Star” and how we iteratively deliver against it.
  • Demonstrate intense ownership for your program, stepping in to own and resolve issues/risks before they impact the program
  • Provide visibility into the status of the program catered to multiple audiences, both with human perspective and using data
  • Use your engineering know how to identify architectural weakness and pressure-test designs
  • Serve as a subject matter expert and single point of contact for the program.  Grow into your role and be willing to learn
  • Negotiate for resources and priorities using data and your referent authority
  • Escalate when necessary appropriately
  • Balance trade-off decisions between short-term and long-term needs
  • Actively mentor other TPMs and engineers

THE STATS

What we’re looking for in our next teammate

  • Extensive Technical Program Management experience
  • Proven track record of ownership and driving programs.
  • Experience driving out complex cross-cutting technology programs
  • Demonstrated experience force multiplying
  • Strong negotiation and communication skills
  • Background with engineering programs. You can lead design discussions working with other Engineers.
  • Experience in the engineering field with an understanding of how to leverage processes to deliver more effectively
  • Ability to understand architectural concepts such as scaling, robustness, etc. and design systems that demonstrate these concepts
  • Previous TPM experience working with multiple teams in a scaled organisation or similar Program Management experience with engineering teams

THE CONTRACT
We treat our team right

Competitive compensation is just the beginning. As part of our team, you can expect:

  • An exciting and fun environment committed to driving real growth
  • Opportunities to build really cool products that fans love
  • Mentorship and professional development resources to help you refine your game
