Job description

The New York Times seeks an Agile Project Manager for the Data Platforms Mission to work with our data infrastructure teams.

The Data Platforms Mission core goal is to supply the organization with timely and reliable data and to build first-rate intelligence and flexible tooling. Our engineering teams work side by side with analysts, data scientists and product teams around the company to drive business outcomes and create best in class data driven user experiences. We build data driven products from A/B testing platforms to real time event tracking to algorithmic recommendations and machine learning platforms.

As an Agile Project Manager you support the development teams’ various needs, filling the Scrum Master role or facilitating Kanban to developing project and program milestones and managing integration phases. You facilitate retrospectives and continuous improvement, keep the team on track and in alignment during high level planning, and coach the team in developing actionable OKRs. As a core member of these teams, you are expected to identify issues, suggest solutions, or help negotiate scope or timelines when necessary to advance a project. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” here; each team will require different levels of involvement and intensity of Agile processes.

We Count On This Role To Drive

  • Project Leadership - Work closely with Product and Engineering to shepherd various types of software development projects from inception through completion. Call out issues between competing interests and personalities to create alignment on priority, scope and realistic timelines.
  • Agile Adoption - Champion and support agile software development practices, and tailor that process (including scrums, planning, review and retrospective sessions, demos and more) to each project team.
  • Collaboration - Guide the Team and key stakeholders to navigate challenges on the road to successful delivery. Influence teams through servant-leadership.
  • Visibility - Ensure shared understanding of project objectives and success criteria across the entirety of the project team. Communicate effectively and drive a free flow of information with and among stakeholders on all matters.
  • Transparency - Track and communicate project status, risks, and emergent issues. Organize complicated information so that it is readily accessible to varying stakeholders and can be kept current with minimal overhead.
  • Continuous Improvement - Help identify systemic issues, process problems, and other risks and work with the appropriate colleagues to find resolutions. Facilitate retrospectives at the Team and project level, turn the output into concrete improvements in process.
  • Impediment Removal: Actively seek out, track and escalate impediments to the Team’s throughput and barriers to project completion.

Qualifications

  • Strong interest in how people work together to create great software products, at the right time with the minimum of friction and waste. Commitment to personal learning and growth, self awareness with the ability to learn and grow from mistakes.
  • X - Y years of relevant work experience in project management of software development in an Agile environment.
  • Hands on Scrum Master experience in software development, some formal Agile training, or participation in an Agile software development team.
  • Superb communication skills, including the ability to communicate between stakeholders and the cross functional product development group.
  • Growing technical fluency. You like understanding how multiple systems fit together and can communicate technical ideas to non-technical stakeholders.
  • A basic understanding of big data (or desire and ability to learn), machine learning, cloud platforms and APIs, and an interest in new technologies. Previous specialization in Data is a plus.
  • Passion for The New York Times’s mission and commitment to be part of our innovation and growth.

The New York Times is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that reflects the varied global community we serve. Our journalism and the products we build in the service of that journalism greatly benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types, across our ranks, at all levels of the organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing for our business. So we strongly encourage women, veterans, people with disabilities, people of color and gender nonconforming candidates to apply.

The New York Times Company is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of an individual's sex, age, race, color, creed, national origin, alienage, religion, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation or affectional preference, gender identity and expression, disability, genetic trait or predisposition, carrier status, citizenship, veteran or military status and other personal characteristics protected by law.
