One of the hottest searches my team is focused on is in Chicago, where Mattea has a Director of PMO (Program Management Office) for our Engineering team. The position reports to the VP of Engineering and has responsibility for leading a team of 20.
You can get the standard job description from our career site, HERE.
But here's the skinny I got from Mattea (our Central Region Recruiter who's headin' up the search):
We're focused on candidates who have a breath/depth of experience across the various departments within Eng (RF/Network Ops/Dev), as this person will be interacting with them heavily. Translation:
It’s key that they are able to demonstrate that they have managed large scale projects, and have managed teams from a senior leadership capacity. Translation:
Big-time experience with wireless systems (10 + years)
At least 5 yrs of experience in a Sr Leadership role: leading large teams of 20+
GSM experience is key. PMI Certification a big plus.
