As a Technical Project Manager in the Content Operations team, you will report to the Content Ops Senior Program Manager, and your role will focus on an important project, the development of a centralized system to store and distribute EA's marketing assets.

The ability to consistently identify dependency issues and to create the necessary collaborations to tackle such issues is paramount.

Key Responsibilities 

  • You align with the Technical Director and Content Ops Sr Program Manager on deployment workflows, and coordinate efforts across multiple complex projects and development teams, spanning multiple time zones.
  • You create project plans and roadmaps which consider budget guidelines, resource bandwidth, product requirements, and overall Content Ops vision.

  • You work in collaboration with scrum masters and other project and product managers, collating information into a clear format, determining where there are risks or lapses in communication or knowledge, and rectifying where necessary.
  • You brief the Content Ops team and senior management leaders about product updates, development progress, appropriate stakeholder key performance indicators, opportunities, and challenges that arise.

Qualifications (What you know how to do)

  • 3+ years of project management experience and experience using agile methodology, specifically Scrum, and iterative thinking.
  • Familiarity with software development cycles, full system life-cycle, and user feedback loops.
  • Help with product strategy, and present clear measurable goals against product development.
  • Prioritize the big picture vision of the product with the precise, detail-oriented work of keeping teams organized and on task.
  • You participate in cross-team collaborations and build relationships across Content Ops and beyond into the broader Marketing organization, while representing the needs and goals of our team and core product.
  • You will set and protect the scope for each body of work, evaluate development risks, and create contingency and mitigation plans.
  • You excel in organized environments and want to bring consistency to workflow process, documentation, and communication.
  • You work towards the bigger goal of bringing our multiple projects together to create one extensive technical ecosystem.
  • Proficient in standard project tools (G-Sheets/Excel, Airtable experience an advantage, JIRA for planning and bug tracking)
