    • Developing comprehensive training, documentation and communication to support the roll out of new initiatives at scale.
    • Identifying opportunities for operational improvements and executing processes to keep them as effective and efficient as possible.

You might be a good fit if you have:

    • Proven program management skills with a bias for action and execution.

    • A consultative and data-driven approach to problem solving.
    • The ability to move fast and think big. You’re able to solve for current pain points while optimizing for the future.
