  • 5+ years of experience in managing agile/scrum development teams

  • Experience setting up agile tooling to facilitate the team tasks and ensure the traceability of all the work and activities in mainstream tooling (e.g: Jira/Bitbucket, GitLab).

  • Experience deploying software in the Edge under regulated environments, understanding the processes and related limitations and establishing automations to overcome them.

  • Demonstrable technical background that ensures the understanding of the needs and key success factors for platform elements and services.

  • Ability to manage engineering outcomes for multiple enterprise-scale software development projects from concept to launch
