Description

The VMware Modern Application Platform Business Unit (MAPBU) is looking for a Sr. Technical Program Manager to join us in building the Tanzu portfolio and transform how the world deploys and scales software. This role will work across the engineering teams to be the ‘glue’ that facilitates the flow of features to our customers while keeping our quality bar high. As a TPM at VMware your primary role is to effectively deliver software of highest value.\n

This role is specifically targeted for the Tanzu Mission Control (TMC) program. TMC is the “front door” to the Tanzu suite for modern application development.

TMC provides mechanisms for provisioning and managing Kubernetes as well as management and insights into the applications running on that infrastructure.\n

You’re able to keep short-term, tactical details of a product release in focus, clearly visible to teams and stakeholders, and under control. At the same time, you’re working towards the long-term goal of building a sustainable software development and release system that will scale for years to come.\n

You will build the mechanisms that allow the program to understand its progress towards its near and long term goals and illuminate paths to get there. You’ll enable the program to connect those goals to overall Business Unit and VMware Objectives, maintaining alignment within the overall roadmap.\n

You are capable of understanding distributed systems, how they work, and partnering with engineering teams to set the technical direction, vision and strategy. You are capable of managing a program around a nascent SaaS platform solution with early customer adoption as it evolves and scales towards an established, mature product in the market.\n

This role includes but is not limited to helping build systems and feedback loops around the TMC program, delivering timely and healthy product releases, providing feedback and coaching to Engineering and Product teams and leadership within the program, and supporting a culture of continuous improvement and learning within MAPBU R&D. As the program landscape changes, this role will also include ensuring those transitions are healthy and resilient.\n

Familiarity and experience with agile software delivery methodologies and lean governance.\n
