About You

You obsess over the details.  You blend technical ability with business acumen. While you are not necessarily a developer, you may have tinkered and are familiar with development methodologies. You are effective at connecting long-term vision to near-term objectives.

You are incredibly organized. Nothing slips through the cracks when you’re running a project. You measure everything. You are inquisitive, and you know how to listen and incorporate new knowledge into your program strategy. You have a knack for connecting the dots across multiple things and ensuring they are in sync.  You know how to work collaboratively across teams in order to produce the strongest outputs. Above all else, you are also an excellent communicator, both written and verbal, and you understand how to effectively convey ideas to various stakeholders across the organization. 

You will have the opportunity to wear several hats, and you should be comfortable learning new things and taking on new responsibilities. You’ll spearhead strategic initiatives. You won’t hesitate to roll up your sleeves and do the dirty work to turn your concepts into reality.  You’ll team up with sales in the field one day, dig through spreadsheets and analytics tools another day, and deep dive with developers the next.

You read the books, you’ve followed the blogs, and as someone committed to continual improvement, you’re excited to improve the overall practice of program management at Passport.

Willingness to travel up to 15%.
