  • Required to have good technical knowledge to relay management goals to their team.
  • Willing to challenge whether user stories are correctly sized and executable within the time frame.
  • Capable of resource optimization and motivation toward a quality outcome.
  • Experienced in ADO and excel to create and support reporting and progress tracking. (PowerBI is helpful but not required.)

Requirements:
  • 5-10 years IT Agile PM experience
