Summary

The technology product management team owns the delivery of external customer facing and internal WFS products. The team comprises of commercial and product owners that work together and partner closely with relevant business owners in taking products from initial ideas, through refinement, to an established vision, strategic roadmap, delivery execution and ongoing production usage. The product manager will have responsibility for a portfolio of related and/or independent products. This role will directly guide various IT delivery teams or squads (including business analysts, quality assurance analysts, solution architects, software developers, user experience/UI design specialists, etc.) utilizing the agile methodology to enable development of state-of-the-art digital products, drive efficient delivery, and monitor delivery performance.

Success in this role hinges on the ability to understand customer needs, provide innovative and high-quality solutions, and to collaborate seamlessly across a highly matrixed organization with various teams focused on different departmental goals. While this role is primarily execution-focused, it also requires a strategic and analytical mindset and effective ongoing engagement with business leadership and stakeholders. This role provides visibility to customers and product end users, as well as frequent updates with executive leadership. The product manager will have autonomy to manage challenging requirements, with support whenever required from the rest of the technology product management and business leadership teams.

A successful candidate will be self-driven and possess strong communication, facilitation, and influencing skills. The candidate will balance short-term and long-term opportunities, while promoting customer value within their product area and across the overall technology ecosystem. The product manager will be results-driven and will consistently maintain a high say-do ratio (getting things done!).

Our existing team has developed a high level of trust with business partners and customer alike. We have talented team members with varied WFS tenure from diverse backgrounds and multiple functional disciplines. We operate in a fast-paced, high energy and positive environment, where we are always raising the bar. We are looking for a new team member who will thrive in this setting and help further enhance our culture and skillsets.
