Who are we?
At Outware, our vision is to make a difference through creating mobile experiences that are intuitive, effective, and engaging. We work with our clients to develop custom mobile solutions across a range of technologies and touchpoints, including smartphone, wearables, smart watches, smart TVs, augmented and virtual reality, and chatbots. Our award-winning apps are used by millions of Australians every day, and our clients include some of Australia's leading businesses, including ANZ, NAB, Coles, and Transurban.

The Role

This is a unique opportunity to join us work on a high profile and truly innovative project within financial services. It requires both an operational and strategic mindset, someone who can operate at program level and deliver project outcomes whilst managing multiple project streams at once.  Whilst this project is technical, we are not seeking a technical project manager.

As the Program Manager you will drive the success of this project through your previous experience on client side - demonstrating outstanding stakeholder management and influencing capability, along with the rigour and experience to govern and report on all aspects of the program. You will be an outstanding communicator who is a focused, but versatile leader and enjoys the opportunity to make decisions on suitable strategies and objectives in a fast paced, changing and challenging environment. Your experience working on projects at executive level and proven ability to run and govern Agile Enterprise projects will set you apart from the crowd!

Preferred skills and experience

  • Proven experience delivering results as a Program Manager or Project Director on an Agile or Digital Transformation Project.
  • Key to this role is Senior Stakeholder engagement – with this being your key to engaging people and getting things done all whilst being sensitive to our customer and our company culture, whilst managing expectations appropriately and handling key stakeholders.
  • Exposure to working in the Financial Services space is an advantage
  • Experience in a mature Agile environment with strong knowledge of Agile ceremonies, development principles and tools
  • You need to be able to display leadership qualities along with strength of character and charisma
  • Demonstrated hands-on experience managing enterprise Agile delivery
  • Passionate about mobile apps and mobile technology
