    • You take ownership for the success and productivity of your technical teams.
    • You’ll report to the Director, Program Management in our Product Development department within the R&D - Product division.

Respect: How You'll Use Your Professional Skills

    • You’ll use your 5+ years experience in SaaS delivery and/or project management, knowledge of agile/scrum development practices, and your communication skills to:
    • Contribute to the advancement and improvement of Agile and/or planning practices within the organization.
    • Facilitate sound technical decision making on the team even without being technical.  Help make decisions by weighing all options, understanding trade-offs and risks, and codifying the rationale for the decisions. 
    • Make recommendations for team norming and alignment, team competency development, and areas of process change or improvement. 

    • You’ll use your prioritization and time management skills to:
    • Effectively coordinate and work across various departments to conquer larger, complicated projects.

    • Kyruus also loves to see an internal transfer. If a linear career path is not what you’re looking for, you can work with your manager and HR to explore lateral moves to other parts of the organization as you continue to grow with us.
