The successful candidate will oversee technical projects for pension processing, financial transaction or similar enterprise solution technology systems.
At an enterprise level, the TAPM will be responsible for overseeing multiple concurrent scrum teams in a Scaled Agile environment to develop an application in a fast-paced environment. At a team level, the TAPM plays a supervisory role to ensure compliance with the defined development processes and standards, and a coaching role to members of the team as needed to optimize the efficiency of the project teams, and the quality of the product that they produce. In a hybrid Agile environment, the TAPM will use good judgment and skill to develop a project oversight approach that is suitable for planning and managing the effort to achieve the project goals within designated project constraints. In performing this role, the TAPM will be expected to use a high level of knowledge and experience in blending traditional project management principles and practices with an Agile development approach in the right proportions to fit a large, complex, mission-critical, enterprise-level program to provide the right balance of agility and predictability.
Working closely with the Product Owners, Subject Matter Experts, Scrum Masters and Release Train Engineers (RTEs), the TAPM will facilitate and guide the teams through agile practices and ceremonies, including backlog grooming sessions, sprint planning, daily scrum meetings, sprint demos, and retrospectives with a focus on producing high-quality, bug-free code that meets the needs of the business and member community.
The TAPM will keep the Program Manager apprised on a weekly basis of the activities, roadblocks, and progress of each team. One of the main goals of the TAPM is to provide a "no surprises” environment for the Program Manager, the user community, and executive management.
