What & Why:
As a result of growth and investment in technology our client is looking for a program manager to join an engineering team.  This role will involve the usual program management tasks in terms of schedule, driving to timelines and reporting status and issues, but likely no dedicated budget.

They are well known for their corporate culture and has won major awards for their accomplishments. They have invested majorly in technology and have had an incredibly successful past few years, including a major strategic acquisition. They have an all-star leadership team who keeps you accountable and provides support while still affording you tremendous autonomy. They are located close to rapid transit in newly renovated offices in downtown Vancouver and have a hybrid work environment, 3 days a week in office.

You will bring the following education, skills and experience to the role:
  • 5+ years as program manager, running complex programs with many stakeholders, preferably in an infrastructure or engineering environment
  • PMO experience, strong understanding of the use of metrics, KPIs, governance
  • Change management/transformational program experience
  • ITIL knowledge preferred
  • Experience in running infrastructure/engineering platforms preferred, knowledge of platform operations an asset
