Project Manager - Product

Apply
Ref#: 30406
CBS Business Unit: Showtime
Job Type: Full-Time Staff
Job Schedule: Full-Time
Job Location: New York, NY, US

Description:

As a Project Manager on the Product team, you will drive the execution of projects that support Showtime’s business goals for both the SHOWTIME stand-alone streaming service and Showtime Anytime, our TV Everywhere service.

Because our apps are available across a large number of platforms (iOS, tvOS, web, Roku, Android mobile, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and many others), projects you’ll work on here will likely be multi-faceted (and, as a result, quite interesting), and you’ll interact with lots of different team members, internal stakeholders, device partners, developers, product owners and QA testers in pursuit of delivering high-quality, timely products and features.

Great candidates for this role will exhibit exceptional technical fluency: Although scheduling and communication are key aspects of this job, you’ll often find yourself describing complex technical issues to stakeholders and partners and collaborating closely with developers to improve efficiency in the feature- or application-delivery process.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Own overall project communication and coordination; ensure that all project goals and tasks are documented, well communicated, understood and eventually, completed.
  • Monitor, communicate and crush project risks and roadblocks.
  • Drive discussion when conflicts arise and work with the team on alternatives or different approaches.  Find a way to make it happen.
  • Assist with overall resource planning and project roadmap schedule
  • Develop project plans for key projects using appropriate planning techniques that track progress of critical business objectives.  Highlight and drive the resolution of risks surfaced by such plans.
  • Review business, functional and technical requirements for completeness and identify gaps, as needed.
  • Recommend and implement process changes as necessary

Qualifications:

 Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, or relevant related field a plus, but not required.
  • Relevant business certifications are noted.

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • 3-5 years of project management experience in the digital media industry, preferably with video-based experiences and products across web, mobile and OTT platforms
  • 3-5 years of management experience bringing medium to large-scale complex projects through the full software development life cycle using Agile methodologies.
  • Proven experience in people management, strategic planning, risk management and change management
  • Must have excellent leadership, team management, relationship building, and interpersonal skills.
  • Must have experience managing and negotiating with partner, vendors and development shops.
  • Knowledge of Jira/Confluence a plus.
