The Role:

Working closely with Product Owners/Product Managers and cross-functional teams, you will manage and implement the release process of our SaaS products in order to achieve business objectives. Releases will typically include product updates, operating system patches and security/data protection improvements but can also include ad-hoc changes.

Your main responsibility will be to define, implement and manage release processes to guarantee timelines are met and service(s) provided by the software products are fit for purpose. You will be experienced in creating dynamic iterative delivery plans at a higher level as well as getting into the detail to make things happen when needed.

If this role sounds of interest to yourself, please apply within and I will look forward to discussing it further.
