What we're looking for

You will be responsible for ensuring mission success by leading the development and integration of Ditto's platform with various government partners. These projects will be diverse in nature and require you to be organized and flexible to adapt to changing situations.

On one project, you may be working with the customer to clarify how each of its requirements can be met, including the plan, scope and work required. In another situation, you may be acting as a hybrid product/project manager, creating a vision with the customer, and leading a team of engineers to transform that vision into a tangible new product. During all this, you must be able to collaborate with both external and internal stakeholders, communicate plans clearly to all parties, and manage teams towards success.

Success in this position also hinges on systems/engineering experience, or the ability to learn technical concepts - mainly software related- quickly. Digging into the details to understanding system dependencies, technical risks and the impact of key architectural decisions with the engineering team is a must. You will be expected to utilize your technical aptitude in conjunction with your program/project management skills to deliver the best outcome for Ditto and the customer.

Work with a remote team, manage your own time, and tackle interesting problems. Ditto is an equal opportunity employer with people from many different cultures and countries. We celebrate empathy are committed to building a diverse team that represents a variety of backgrounds, skillsets, and perspectives, and to providing our employees with a rewarding and inclusive work environment.
