  • You are flexible and adaptable. You get things done even if you must deviate from the process.
  • You have experience working collaboratively across organizations, and you enjoy bringing diverse viewpoints to the point of collaboration.
  • You have strong leadership and interpersonal skills, and you value fostering healthy working relationships where healthy conflict not only exists but thrives.
  • You have strong communication skills, organizational skills and strong attention to detail.
  • You have experience influencing without direct authority at senior levels internal and external to the engineering organization
  • You have a working knowledge of software development lifecycle practices.


  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, MIS, or CIS, or equivalent work experience
