Job Description:

Job Requisition ID: 86897 This is a HYBRID role: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on site - Monday and Friday work from home Summary: The top priority is to be a servant-leader for the teams you will support. That means asking the group about their challenges so that you can unblock them, not asking what the team can do for you. People development is critical to your success. In some cases, create IDP plans for people you manage directly. Coach and motivate the team through challenges to deliver outcomes. This approach includes meeting 1/1 weekly and attending project and operation meetings so that you can provide direct and frequent feedback. Relentlessly focusing on people's development enables you to scale your leadership and helps to avoid spiraling into micro-management. Due to your access to information, you'll have to work to connect the dots to support the teams you support consistently. Also, encourage skip-level and cross-functional communication. Avoid hierarchical and expensive communication flow. Create a psychologically safe environment for people to flourish. You should encourage a healthy work environment that is supportive and challenging. - i.e., don't punish people who make production mistakes - coach the person and fix the process. We try to avoid assigning blame of an incident to a person. Empower the teams you'll support by discussing problems and allowing them to drive solutions -avoid handing down requirements. This approach improves problem-solving and innovation. Build self-driving teams, which include consultants, through empowerment, autonomy, blameless culture, and shared prioritization. Proactively build high-performing, diverse and inclusive teams by working with HR, DE, and Year-Up organizations. Strive to achieve operational excellence by improving the availability and reliability of services. However, 100% shouldn't be the target because that leads to fewer changes and more technical debt. Allowing the team to take risks typically increases innovation and effective problem-solving. This doesn't negate the need to have robust test practice in place. Core Responsibilities: Manage a budget that exceeds $ 30 m. This budget includes CAPex and OPex. Work collaboratively with finance and strategic partners to manage the budget effectively. Manage over 50 ad-hoc and annual contracts a year from creation to signature.
