As part of the global delivery team, you will own the entire end-to-end technical delivery of R3’s new product offering, ensuring we deliver software on time, quality and budget. You are knowledgeable in mainstream project management approaches with a good understanding of Agile Software Methodology, leveraging both to provide governance required for our stakeholders and the agility necessary for development teams.
You will need solid technical project management experience with either hands-on experience or a strong understanding of Distributed technologies or large-scale n-tier technologies leveraging AWS or Azure. You will have a natural flair for getting the most out of the teams, complementing your strong organisational skills and attention to detail.

  • Previous experience in delivering large-scale projects focussing on commercial or central banks required.
  • 10+ years of experience managing enterprise projects, preferably using cloud technologies.
