2 Very Senior Level roles

San Ramon

9 months initially . This project has been going on for a year already

CMOS (Cash Management Online Solution)

Largest project in the history of the bank by both size and budget.

There are 2 openings, Primary need is a Migration PM.

Banking is highly desired but not required.

We are looking for two PMs for two different roles (Migration and Training)

This is NOT a “clipboard” PM role tracking deadlines only. In this role the PM will be part of Product Launch and must have the ability to parse an ambiguous task into bite sized chunks and can lead people thru it. People coming from a Start Up only background will not be a fit for an Enterprise Organization that is highly regulated. Teams are spread thin so a strong leadership personality is required.

There are 225 people on this project. There are MANY CHALLENGES for this project so they need very strong leaders in these roles. There are many work streams on this project especially in MIGRATION workstream. Will work with the director of Product Launch as well as Business Partners as well.

Must OWN their work stream(S). This PM will be part of a migration of 16, 000+ businesses to the new CASH MANAGEMENT.

Migration Experience and ideally can understand SQL queries and have conversations with the Data Architects

Leadership skills

Lead solution delivery effort

Relationship Building Skills

Must be (internal) Customer Focused

Training workstream: Must have exp with MarComm and working with vendor to meet the needs of the product manager(s) on the Migration.

The current platform is being “sunsetted” next year so this is where all of the training needs come in across all of bank both internal stake holders, vendor, artifacts developed and delivered to vendors, product launch, etc.
