WebMD is looking for a Technical Project Manager to manage a complex project portfolio across multiple development teams. You will collaborate with technology and product members to steward key projects within our strategic road-map, serving as air-traffic control for our business. Reporting to the Sr. Director of Technology, you'll be a key player for an organization that's been delivering wellness solutions to large health plans and employers. As part of a friendly, collaborative, talented team, you'll help guide important efforts on our product roadmap.
The Ideal Candidate:
You possess a balance of organizational skills and prioritization ability. You understand technology as a vehicle to key business objectives. You see the big picture, you recognize what it takes to achieve it, and you guide the team down a path that leads to successfully achieving their core objectives. While you’re familiar with a variety of methodologies, tools and tricks of the trade, you know that reaching the right outcome is far more important than obsessing about status reports. Your role is to keep things moving, avoiding bureaucracy and bottlenecks. People love working with you because you bring all the right people and skills together, and you know how to get stuff done along the path of least resistance.

Keep business owners up to date on project status and potential issues. Collaborate with multiple stakeholders across teams to educate, influence, and execute. Resolve project, design, or resource issues before they cause schedule delays.
Minimum 3+ years of experience leading development teams. Understanding of project processes (scheduling, documentation, risk analysis, and contingency planning).
Strong understanding of Agile/Scrum/Kanban development process, including development, testing, and deployment, as well as work breakdown, dependencies, responsibilities (full SDLC).
Skilled communicator, boiling complex concepts down into clear, actionable plans.
Willingness to dive in and research a project or problem from multiple points-of-view, build consensus to supported conclusions, and lay out a clear go forward game plan.
Strong ability to use/manage project management tracking/reporting tools. Strong attention to detail, follow-through, and organizational skills.
Highly analytical, logical, and good problem-solving skills.
