Senior Technical Project Manager


Charlotte, NC
Full Time

Ekos is seeking a dynamic, innovative Senior Technical Project Manager to help us grow our beer and cider offerings and continue moving into other markets. As a key member of the engineering team, you will have the unique opportunity to influence and shape the outcome of strategic products. You will be a key point of contact for a diverse cross-functional team that will look to you for leadership and guidance. You will work with Software Engineers, Business and Product Leads, and external partners to understand the business requirements and translate these requirements into technical/functional specifications. Discover the true requirements underlying feature requests; recommend alternative technical approaches; lead engineering efforts to meet timelines.

What you'd be doing:

• Balance business needs versus technical constraints. Assertively hold all parties accountable to strategic goals.

• Work with our Engineering Leads to coordinate the technical development effort, track/drive the project, and manage the operational implementation process. Anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management and make tradeoffs; encourage smart risk-taking behavior to maximize business benefit; identify interdependencies between concurrent projects to prevent downstream problems.

• Work with the product managers to launch these projects and provide ongoing technical support as appropriate.

• Evangelize within and outside of Ekos to encourage a fast and smooth adoption of the services; be the primary conduit for gathering requirements for future enhancements; develop demos, sample and technical collateral as required.

• Attend cross-functional team meetings: Product, Support, Customer Success and other team’s scrums to follow up, prioritize work, and track dependencies.

• Coordinate meetings with stakeholders and provide updates.

• Assess incoming feature requests and work with engineering teams to determine level of effort.

• Act as Scrum Master/Agile Coach for teams.

What we'd like to see:

• Proven experience in managing large scale enterprise projects and writing public technical specifications

• Solid foundation in service-based and web-service technologies to be able to understand service interdependencies and drive towards technical solutions for multi-tiered systems

• Possess a thorough understanding of software processes (development, configuration, testing, and deployment)

• Demonstrate maturity, judgment, negotiation/influence skills, analytical skills, leadership skills essential to successful program/project management

• Be a motivated self-starter who is also a team player with great cross-group collaboration skills

• Exhibit excellent oral and communication skills

• Detail oriented, yet able to look at a wide array of choices and identify what truly matters

• 3-5 years experience leading large, cross-functional technical projects

• 4+ years experience working on a software development team (as a developer, dev manager, QA engineer, or TPM) managing projects and writing technical specifications
