Are you someone who enjoys working independently and leading premier software delivery solutions? At Slalom, we want you to bring your passion, your drive and your knowledge to deliver world-class technology solutions. Our Solution Owners are more than just your traditional Project Managers; they actively seek the best solutions and work alongside very best delivery teams. The primary responsibilities of this role include working with partners to understand their business and technical requirements, building and handling the product backlog, and successfully leading agile projects through their respective lifecycles.

  • Own the agile software delivery team, handle issues and mitigate risks
  • Be the functional and subject matter authority for the solution and act as the liaison between Product Ownership, Project Governance, and the Development / Implementation Team
  • Work alongside the Product Owner to define the product by identifying requirements and thinking critically about what will make it successful; write user stories that effectively communicate the Product Owner's requirements and that are easily consumed by software development teams
  • Work with the engineering team -- in particular, the Solution Architect -- to define and validate the technical approach, strategy, and deliverables for the project
  • Attend and lead meetings; provide project status reporting to management; assist with testing scenarios, and validate results
  • Prepare and deliver client presentations and work products / prototypes
  • Work with and lead QA teams in the execution of test plans, verification of sprint feature releases, and assistance in triaging defects for engineering and QA teams

What You'll Bring
  • Experience in Agile software development as a Project, Product, or Program manager for a consulting firm or creative agency
  • Experience in all phases of product, software, and testing lifecycles
  • Able to serve as a liaison between both business and technical teams to drive effective, timely solutions that fulfill both strategic and operational needs
  • Skilled at defining and documenting business and functional requirements for ongoing system improvement initiatives in iterative software development environments
  • Solid knowledge in software delivery: Agile, Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, XP, and Lean
  • Able to purposefully identify risks and drive action to mitigate and resolve issues
  • Proven experience within software engineering; specifically, mobile, DevOps and modern web
  • Familiarity with all types of technical documentation (process maps, BRDs, system diagrams, user experience, application maps, test plans, user stories, etc.)
  • Experience leading all Agile events, including sprint planning, sprint review / demo, retrospective, and daily stand-ups
