The opportunity

Reporting to the Director of Product Operations, we are hiring a Program Manager who can take the initiative to manage projects within a specific Altus Services Framework (which includes Altus Products and Services), aligning deliverables with the program, driving the project plans, mitigating risks, and defining proactive resolutions. You will play a critical role in ensuring innovation in your program, elaborating and detailing how we work within a new framework from engagement and execution to communication and evaluation. You will manage the success of product launches and quarterly releases at Altus, report on the overall health of the program, spearhead the work of Project Managers and work in partnership with Product Managers.

Who you are

You are currently a Program Manager or you may be a Senior Project, Operations, or Relationship Manager ready to take the next step. You have experience managing multiple projects at once, preferably at larger organizations, and taking on the additional responsibility of overall program coordination. You are seeking an opportunity to gain exposure and make an impact at a growing global tech product company. You can quickly shift gears and adapt to the unique needs of each project you lead, ensuring alignment with the program roadmap and reporting overall program status up to senior executives.

Internal partnerships. You will work with and build strong relationships with teams across the organization and become a subject matter expert on internal processes, leading collaboration, providing structure and communication, connecting departments and ensuring we stay organized to achieve our goals.

Career growth. The exposure you gain in different business areas will open doors for you, whether they're at Altus or elsewhere.
