You will oversee the delivery of the user stories: providing detailed specification to the Solution Architects and Developers where necessary; managing the contact between the Development Team and the SMEs; tracking and reporting progress; identifying, recording, elaborating and resolving issues. You’ll be constantly working with our Developers, Partners and our IT PMO team to determine time and cost impact of each story.
