Senior Program Manager

At Docker, Technical Program Managers make sure that the right products ship on schedule. They work closely with Product and Engineering teams to create actionable plans -- and make sure that all efforts converge into powerful deliverables for our customers. This job goes beyond “standard” Project Management, i.e., creating milestones, defining dependencies, tracking projects, and running Sprint sessions. It requires a deep understanding of the content and strategic value of the Products that we ship -- and an extraordinary ability to identify, articulate, and elevate discordant issues so that they can be solved without losing overall momentum.

At Docker, we are creating technology that underlies a new wave of Cloud Computing -- so nothing is ever standard or paint-by-the-numbers. Technical Program Management provides “enough” process to maintain productivity in this hyper-fast environment -- without creating drag or stifling creativity. This requires Program Managers who are creative, wise, sensitive, and cool. We know you are out there.
