Job Description

Our Fortune 500 Client is seeking a Release Train Engineer for a potentially long-term, remote role. We need a senior-level person who can work with multiple products and coordinate their releases amongst all of those products. The RTE role is the keeper of Agile for a program, so they must have the capability to be involved with pre- and post-PI (program incremental) planning, keep up with the program Kanban board, all the way down to the individual product and team boards in ADO. This person will ideally have the ability to also act as a Product Owner and Business Analyst as well but will mainly be the RTE or Scrum Master running with everything from user stories with acceptance criteria, to story points, to defining stories and prioritizing the backlog, to coordinating releases and leading the PI planning meetings. They must be comfortable working with the client to populate that information in ADO and also have enough experience to coordinate that amongst multiple products (currently they have 5). It is similar to a Project Manager, but this RTE will have specific skills per SAFe & Agile. They facilitate ART (Agile Release Train) events/processes & communicate with stakeholders, escalate impediments, help manage risk & drive improvement

Required Skills & Experience

- Release Train Engineering experience

- Scaled Agile Release Train Engineer Certification (SAFe)

- AWS Cloud Migration experience

- Azure DevOps experience

- Experience facilitating ART (agile release train) events/processes and communicate with stakeholders

- Someone who can be uncomfortable with ambiguity (needs to be proactive rather than reactive)

Nice to Have Skills & Experience

- Experience as a Scrum Master

- UAT testing experience

Benefit packages for this role will start on the 31st day of employment and include medical, dental, and vision insurance, as well as HSA, FSA, and DCFSA account options, and 401k retirement account access with employer matching. Employees in this role are also entitled to paid sick leave and/or other paid time off as provided by applicable law.
