You will be an energetic and enthusiastic Leader willing to drive change and practice excellent software management disciplines to deliver innovative and challenging projects to enable our ACES Strategy (Autonomy, Connectivity, Electrification and Sharing). As part of your role you will be responsible for the definition and delivery of our applications and products and services, working closely with the Development Team to define the product and ensure successful delivery in an Agile manner, you'll also work directly with Key Business Stakeholders and Customers.

You will plan and manage the day to day activities and resources, aligning project deliverables and milestones identifying and managing project risks and blockers.

You'll handle the delivery of projects and products using the appropriate agile project management methodology, learning & iterating frequently whilst handling Agile reporting and governance alongside key project stakeholders.
