Delivery Manager

at Amplify Education, Inc. in Brooklyn, NY   —   Jul 18, 2014   |  
Overview
Amplify Education is looking for a unique Delivery Manager to help us efficiently, effectively, and continuously deliver features. The Delivery Manager is a key member of the engineering team working with each of the teams to help them establish clear, tangible plans, efficient processes, and effective communication internally and externally. We are looking for someone who is just as comfortable digging into the details to understand the root cause of issues and helping them overcome obstacles as they are at understanding the big picture around strategic initiatives in order to identify key dependencies, potential creative solutions, and the most efficient way forward given a complex set of requirements.


If you don’t often resort to Gantt charts, understand the quirks and curiosities of engineers, and never back away from a challenge, you will find yourself at home at Amplify Access. You’ll have a key role in delivering our new and innovative tablet-based product, working with our growing team to utilize agile development practices to deliver features to our users as often as we can while doing our best to learn, improve, and enjoy each day.

Work across product development teams to ensure alignment around initiatives, coordination around key dependencies, and visibility around high priority deliverables
Work across business units (technology, services, and content) to help plan, track, and manage key initiatives and deliverables
Provide support and guidance as teams establish, track and evaluate team roadmap initiatives at regular intervals
Identify risks and issues and work with teams to effectively manage and mitigate
Engage in regular iteration activities with each of our cross functional product teams to ensure they have efficient and effective flow, clear stories, acceptance criteria, and tasks
Provide feedback, guidance, and leadership around agile best practices to help the team optimize their performance and grow as a team
Organize and facilitate showcases and cross-team activities to create excitement around the accomplishments, sharing of valuable information across teams, and accountability around metrics and commitments
Facilitate inception and planning activities
Identify, collect and communicate key metrics to help the team measure and improve
Plan, track and manage cross-team initiatives
Ensure timely and clear communication, internally and externally
Provide support and assistance with engineering team development efforts


Basic Qualifications of the Delivery Manager:

BA/BS in Computer Science (or equivalent relevant work experience)
5-10 years’ experience delivering mobile and web products in an agile/lean environment
Proven project and delivery experience in a professional environment, including ownership or delivery of a sizable product or product component
In depth understanding and experience with agile principles and practices


Preferred Qualifications of the Delivery Manager:

Experience with mobile development
Experience working in a continuous deployment environment
Ability to communicate effectively with technical and non-technical folks
