About the job
As a Technical Program Manager (TPM), you’ll work hands on with one or more engineering teams to plan and execute business initiatives, including A/B tests, feature/product launches and platform improvements. Using your communication, problem solving, project management and technical skills, you’ll help bridge the gap between Product and Engineering, empowering teams to bring complex ideas to life.
While Product Owners at HelloTech focus on deciding which initiatives their squads should work on and why, TPMs work closely with the engineering team to determine how and when they’ll deliver those initiatives, then manage the delivery.
Specifically, your responsibilities will include:
- Driving the process of transforming business requirements into actionable delivery plans
- Building and maintaining a roadmap for the initiatives in a team’s backlog
- Communicating with other squads to manage dependencies and mitigate risks
- Facilitating planning sessions, tracking the progress of individual tasks and proactively surfacing and removing blockers
- Optimizing a team’s working processes
- Promoting a culture of autonomy, ownership and continuous improvement
Who we are looking for
- You have outstanding verbal and written communication skills, which you use to remove ambiguity and build a common understanding among team members
- You speak the language of customers, stakeholders and engineers, and can translate seamlessly between the three
- You are a proactive problem solver who does what it takes to ensure your team delivers, with minimal direction
- You are a structured thinker who can quickly understand a problem, identify a solution and envision a path to implementing it
- You are highly organized and have a strong sense of ownership
- You have previous experience working as a technical program manager, technical project manager, delivery lead or scrum master in an agile environment
- You are familiar with different agile frameworks and have experience putting them into practice
- You have a solid technical understanding, especially of web and mobile technologies (you can see a list of technologies we work with here)
- You are comfortable moderating discussions about technical architecture and documenting the outcome
It would be beneficial if you also have the following:
- Experience working as a software engineer is a plus
What we offer
- Relocation assistance to move to Berlin and visa application support
- Competitive compensation
- Significant reduction on our meal kits
- Annual learning and development budget to attend conferences or purchase educational resources
- Sabbatical policy
- Work in our office located in the heart of Berlin
- A diverse and vibrant international environment
- A range of perks (Free in-house crash course in German, compensation for advanced German classes, in-house lecture series and knowledge sharing programme, discounts for our neighboring gym & Urban Sports Club, free weekly yoga classes, summer & winter parties, discount on our HelloFresh GO vending machines)
- The chance to have a significant impact on one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe in an exciting growth phase
