    • Develop the engineering team’s approach to project management, and help in building those skills within the team.
    • Define how engineering management coordinates operational activities between customers and internal stakeholders.
  • Facilitate discussions between team members, with the whole team, and cross-functionally where such discussions will add value.
  • Occasional travel and off-hours support may be required, but are not core to this role.

We’re Interested in You Because
