Better requires process, discipline, and simplification

Well look to you to oversee several large and complex projects and ensure that they are planned, managed and governed in a transparent and disciplined manner. Youll develop and maintain strong partnership with the Business Sponsor to gain understanding of requirements, sustain open dialogue to manage project deliverables efficiently, to facilitate and drive the benefits of the projects.

Youll manage daily scrums to maximize team output, facilitate sprint ceremonies and conflict resolution, hold teams accountable for their commitments and help remove roadblocks to their work. Youll effectively communicate with senior management and the project governance authorities (Business Sponsor, project board, steering committee etc.), and manage the overall configuration and status of the project. Lastly, your role will contribute to and help define, document and standardize Agile processes and metrics.

To be successful in this role, you should be able to communicate effectively across diverse audiences within and outside of the Sprint Team (Stakeholders, Executives) and possess the ability to work with and influence a wide range of stakeholders (business, compliance, Legal, IT, etc.) to remove impediments to sprint commitments. For such a key role, you have solid experience managing projects in a complex consumer financial services environment with multiple products in payment services, or in a regulatory agency specializing in compliance issues for payment services.
