- Guide and support Agile teams, while also effectively coordinating with groups working in traditional project management frameworks.

- Drive the execution of ARTs, optimizing value flow and ensuring integration of complex cybersecurity solutions.

- Collaborate with Product & Service Owners, Business Analysts, and other stakeholders across diverse methodologies.

- Implement and adapt Agile practices in a mixed-methodology environment, ensuring flexibility and effectiveness in project delivery.

- Manage communication and remove impediments across teams with varying project management approaches.

- Track and report on project metrics and Agile performance indicators to upper management.

- Maintain a keen understanding of emerging trends in cybersecurity, Agile methodologies, and project management.

- Hold retrospectives for the project teams at the end of each project.


- Bachelor’s degree

- Over 5 years of experience in IT project management and Agile leadership, preferably in cybersecurity.

- Demonstrated ability to work with teams not fully operating in an Agile framework.
