Technical Success Manager US Company Jobs – Andela

Job
Title:            
 Technical Success Manager
Organisation: Andela
Duty Station: 
Kampala, Uganda
About US:
Andela is a network
of technology leaders dedicated to advancing human potential. We help companies
build high-performing distributed engineering teams by investing in Africa’s
most talented software developers. Based in NYC, SF, Lagos, Nairobi, and
Kampala, Andela is catalyzing the growth of tech ecosystems across the African
continent while solving the global technical talent shortage.
Job Summary: The
Technical Success Manager will be responsible for helping Andela’s Software
Engineers successfully engage remote clients. Distributed work environments are
growing in popularity but the lack of physical proximity still brings unique
operational challenges. As our engineers partner with teams spread around the
world, across industries and across technology stacks, your role will be to
help make the client and the remote team feel much closer.  No two days will ever be alike and variety
will be the only constant. In the morning, you might find yourself helping
engineers better understand the business value of their California team’s user
stories; in the afternoon, you might virtually travel across the Atlantic in
order to support another team of engineers as they strategically plan a data
migration for their team in London.  
With your knowledge of business, technology, remote communication and
agile project management, you will help make the distance between our engineers
and their teams—thousands of kilometers in most cases—feel like a
logistical afterthought.
Key Duties and Responsibilities:  The
specific responsibilities of the Technical Success Manager position include:
  • Interfacing with the client to
    understand a client’s business as well as their goals and visions for
    products being supported by Andela
  • Ensuring that our engineers are able to
    understand the business context and value of their tasks, as well as how
    it impacts users.
  • Working with our engineers to decompose
    high level stories into smaller, specific tasks and provide high level
    design support to help them understand how to solve specific coding
    challenges.
  • Perform code reviews to ensure that the
    work being submitted to the client follows the client’s coding standards
    as well as meets the letter and spirit of the assigned task
  • Assist our engineers in effectively
    communicating with their teams


Qualifications, Skills and Experience:
  • The ideal candidate should hold a degree
    in Engineering, Computer Science or a related field from an accredited
    university.
  • Five years of experience working in
    software development, technology consulting or software product management
  • Is proficient in at least one of the
    following stacks: Ruby/Ruby on Rails, PHP/Laravel, Python/Django,
    Java/Android, JavaScript/MEAN/PEAN/PREN
  • Have experience effectively working remotely
  • Are passionate about the evolving
    technology landscape and enjoy leveraging advancements to solve business
    problems
  • Have a strong understanding of agile
    software development techniques
  • Have a vibrant personality and
    exceptional communication skills (English, verbal and written)
  • Have the ability to build rapport and
    communicate with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills.
