Your Role: What you'll be doing
Project Manager - Flight Software
The Project Manager’s primary responsibility is to support the Flight Software Manager and key stakeholders with product definition and integration to meet internal and external customer requirements. This responsibility extends to all Government and Commercial Program’s flight software (G&CP FSW) development and includes both development of the flight software as well as emulators used to thoroughly test the software (KITE). They will also be responsible for leveraging project management skills to lead internal operational initiatives. Specifically, the responsibilities of the Project Manager fall into three main areas:
- Get it built – Project Managers collaborate with the Certified Responsible Engineer (CRE) and agile teams to build the required functionality. Project Managers are responsible for ensuring that agile teams are creating an integrated product that meets our customer’s technical and schedule needs. This is achieved through understanding customer requirements, developing a solid system understanding of ULA products, and working closely with key stakeholders.
- Get it deployed – Project Managers collaborate with 3 SCRUM teams to ensure solutions are deployed to customers on time and on budget.
- Drive Value – Products and solutions must meet the business goals established by the program. The Project Manager will work directly with the Flight Software Manager to communicate development operations, identify risks, and escalate issues/help needed. The Project Manager helps to integrate detailed development activities with the overall program schedule to ensure key milestones are met and work scope is accurately forecasted. This includes building and tracking key metrics to assess program performance.
