Technical Program Manager II

Apex Systems

This is a Full-time position in Austin, TX posted June 4, 2021.

100% Remote USC or Greencard Only Technical Program Manager II (TPM)
Looking for a passionate and innovative Senior Technical Program Manager to join our Timekeeping and Workforce Planning Technology Team.

This team is a critical enabler to ensuring HR technology scales quickly and efficiently.

We partner with Team Member Services to transform HR technology; with Legal to ensure compliance and reduce risk; Workforce planning to refine and scale our predictive labor model; and with Whole Foods on Amazon teams as we rapidly experiment and scale with non-traditional labor models. The volume of transactions and range of experiences to fulfill in this scale and diversity are large and unique and require a highly reliable and scalable set of custom (1p) and third party (3p) software applications.

WFM has grown significantly since the initial deployment of Kronos and Workday and we are now at an inflection point where we are making changes to Kronos to better support scaled business processes. There also continues to be an influx of technology change requests to support legal and compliance related requirements. 

As the TPM, you will be key to maintaining and further utilizing our current investment in Kronos and in the introduction of custom-built systems. Projects you will support could range from re-implementing specific features and standardizing timekeeping solutions across WFM to deep integration with Amazon systems to provide a seamless employee experience. You will lead and coordinate design/implementation efforts, coordinating across multiple teams to develop optimal solutions.

You will be expected to make appropriate tradeoffs to optimize time-to-market, clearly communicate goals, roles, responsibilities, and desired outcomes to internal cross-functional and remote project teams.

A successful candidate will be highly analytical, resourceful, customer-focused, team oriented, and will have an ability to work independently under time constraints to meet deadlines.

As a TPM, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, anticipate, and make tradeoffs, and balance business needs versus technical constraints.

Maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role.
BASIC QUALIFICATIONS Bachelor’s Degree or 4+ years equivalent work experience 3+  years of technical program management experience managing complex technology projects.

2+  years of experience working directly with engineering teams.

Experience with software development lifecycle from conception to delivery Experience managing projects across cross functional teams, building sustainable processes, and coordinating release schedules.

Exceptional written and verbal communication A proven track record for being detail-oriented with a demonstrated ability to self-motivate and follow-through on projects.

The ability to use both formal and informal influencing skills within a cross-matrix organization.

Excellent business judgment, strong written and oral communication skills, and a practical, common sense approach to getting things done.

High attention to detail and proven ability to manage multiple, competing priorities simultaneously.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS Degree in computer science or engineering preferred Previous experience with managing projects implementing and/or modifying Kronos.

Experience in project management methodologies such as AGILE.
