Sr. Technical Program Managers Needed

Postby ccallaway-p40 » Tue Sep 18, 2007 1:44 pm

I am a recruiter for the ICS department of the Lds church and I specialize in finding Program Managers. Currently we are looking to fill multiple positions. This is not your typical Program Manager position. Candidates need to be highly technical in a variety of different aspects of technology, ie development, infrastructure, databases. Along with having a technical background, candidates need to have strong management skills. Someone who can move a room, and has excellent problem solving abilities.

Working Remotely

Postby 16cards-p40 » Tue Sep 18, 2007 7:23 pm

How does the Church feel about working remotely? Some of the strongest contributors on my team work from home roughly 80% of the time. And then there are the team members I've designed major components with that I have an exclusively virtual relationship with from China, Japan, Israel, Silicon Valley, Toronto, Brazil, and England.

I speculate the Church could open itself to a much larger talent pool that may be more effective than a regionally constrained pool.

Currently most of our employees work at headquarters or at local area offices. However we realize that it is becoming a trend to allow working remotely and so we are currently studying how we would support this.

(I'm not interested at this time, but...) I've found that titles like "Program Manager" and "Project Manager" mean something different to everyone. What does Program Manager mean at ICS?

Also, what does ICS think of Agile and Scrum?

Program managers at the Church are in charge of interfacing between the customer and the technical team. They manage the project from start to finish. In many organizations this is also called a "project manager".

The Church does utilize Agile development methods.
