About the role:

We are seeking an experienced Program Manager to join OfferUp’s growing Program Management Organization (PMO).

We drive cross-functional initiative planning in support of successful product and engineering launches, ensure our organization’s strategic direction is reflected in projects, and help provide the means and tools for OfferUp to successfully manage cross-functional initiatives.

You’re flexible, humble, and possess impeccable judgment. You’re equally comfortable conversing with technical people as you are operational people, and thrive in a fast paced environment. You’re great at spotting issues, and adept at managing relationships up, down, and across organizations.

In this role, you’ll help develop processes and tools to introduce effective initiative tracking cadences at OfferUp, and assist various teams to manage projects and launch planning. To be successful, you’ll develop a broad understanding of the business in order to drive scalable processes and to drive alignment. As a Program Manager on the team, you’ll also help identify and implement best practices, provide thought leadership, and support and mentor more junior Program Specialists.

This role requires supporting large projects, managing project timelines, and communicating to senior management on status, risks, and process/product changes.

Here’s more of what you will get to do:

  • Participate and assist in managing agile ceremonies for scrum teams
  • Connect cross-functional teams to identify dependencies and remove obstacles
  • Look around corners, ask the right questions, and resolve or escalate blockers
  • Capture and manage risks and escalations as needed to drive ongoing progress
  • Perform ongoing communication, reporting, scheduling and logistics
  • Coordinate reporting, review, and communication rhythms
  • Contribute to cross-functional reviews, and engage with key stakeholders
  • Capture high level requirements and descriptions of solutions defined and delivered by the program, working with business stakeholders, domain subject matter experts, and engineering teams
  • Hold owners accountable for their commitments

What you’ve done:

  • 5+ years program or project management experience
  • Worked in and managed resources in an agile environment
  • Experience in tech, preferably in a consumer or e-commerce product
  • Adept at leading solution-focused discussions, brainstorms, and working sessions
  • Experience building, coordinating, and maintaining schedules across multiple teams
  • Comfortable conversing with both technical and operational stakeholders
  • Developed and delivered project documentation, supporting materials, and project plans to internal teams and senior leaders throughout the project lifecycle
  • Skilled in written and verbal communication

Helpful, but not required:

  • PMP certification
  • Scrum or agile certification
  • Experience managing Jira and Confluence

An Insider's view of OfferUp

What's something quirky about your company?

This may seem silly, but we have a 90lb MMA dummy our CEO bought and named Pat. On a daily basis, someone will take Pat and figure out creative ways to scare some folks in the office. How do I know? I am Pat.

What does your typical day look like?

One of the great things about OfferUp is that no two days look the same. The only thing you will see me do every day at the same time is plank at 3 p.m. with my team. Otherwise, who knows?

Software Development Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Like many engineers, one of my favorite parts of being in tech is using my creativity and logic to create something new, especially here at OfferUp where what we create has the ability to help the environment and enable people to support their own businesses.

Software Development Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

OfferUp will continue to be the premier local mobile marketplace for buying and selling, but there will likely be more and better e-commerce opportunities with the onset of new delivery technologies. OfferUp has such unique purpose and is leading the transformation of how consumers buy and sell locally. I'm delighted to be a part of the team.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work/life balance is fantastic at OfferUp, especially for a startup! Sure, there are some days you may need to stay late- but everyone is pitching in here and understands the importance of recharging and resetting.
