Program Strategist, VMware App Navigator - Opportunity for Working Remotely

Job Description

Program Strategist, VMware App Navigator
- Portfolio.
About UsCloud transformation is accelerating as organizations everywhere aggressively move toward public and hybrid cloud, edge and 5G technologies to compete and win in the digital age. Of course, change is hard and careful planning is necessary. But, too often that planning is slow, analysis is fraught with assumptions and (let's face it) often ends up being wrong.
VMware Portfolio Navigator is a service offering created in the belief that when change is hard, iteration is best. We deliver using specialized techniques and tooling that help our consultants, working alongside customers, enable tangible results in days and weeks, not months and years.
VMware is doubling down on this approach and growing our team of solution and program architects. We are looking for collaborative people with a passion for customer enablement and outcomes to lead short and impactful Navigator engagements that focus across a broad spectrum of cloud application and platform technologies. About YouYou are a pragmatic, dynamic and thoughtful leader of people and programs with a strong passion for agile and lean principles. You thrive in a complex ecosystem, collecting, sharing, and synthesizing input from many directions and enabling your team to continuously deliver customer value. You love change and feel energized working in new situations with new people. You feel comfortable working with senior stakeholders to define and manage priorities. You are able to communicate technical and programmatic information at the right level of detail for the appropriate varied audiences. Above all, you judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of our customers.

Portfolio Navigator roles are highly collaborative, with 80% of time spent in direct, 1:1 pairing or larger team collaboration. During the COVID-19 crisis, this collaboration is managed remotely, with the expectation that face-to-face engagement in a VMware or customer office will be required once the crisis is resolved.
