  • Partner with our technology and analytics team to deliver a technology-enabled solution that serves as the single source of skills data on Spunkers, with the intention of rapidly growing that platform to serve as an internal talent marketplace down the line
  • Collaborate with the assigned Program Manager/Project Manager to bring the vision of the program to life by identifying the workstreams required, to building a project plan, identifying and addressing risks - escalating where needed, highlighting accomplishments and providing regular progress measures and reports to leadership
