Join The GRAYBOX Team
GRAYBOX is looking for a Producer who has proven experience leading teams and consulting engagements to join our team.
Producers act like mini-ceo’s for their projects, and their #1 priority is to be the advocate for our customers as a part of an overall consultative process.
JOB DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES
- Builders: You grew from either a design or engineering background to become a product owner, or team leader.
- Consultants: Knowing when and how to inform, educate, and corral our customer expectations. An expert at distilling and harnessing a customer’s vision.
- Product Oriented: Diving into wireframe reviews, and providing decisive on-the-fly leadership to our customers, and internal teams.
- Leaders: You feel at home running sprint planning sessions and retrospectives, communicate estimates to customers, mentor designers and developers, and provide upward visibility to executive sponsors.
- Self-driven learners: “I can’t” and “I don’t know” aren’t in your lexicon. You have been the catch-all expected to “find out”, and be the hub for all knowledge for our customers and their projects.
- Experienced: You’ve been a product owner, consultant, and have successfully lead software development projects.
- Our Producers partner with our customers to build them what they need, not just providing them with what they want.
- Our Production teams have a lot of autonomy. There isn't just "the one way" to do things. Each of our partners has distinct goals and success criteria - together with the production staff, Producers design and realize a bespoke solution for our customers.
- You will assemble and work with small teams of experts from our Strategy, Design, and Engineering team to realize our Customer’s vision.
- Our customers partner with us because we care about building great experience. Your hard work will not go unnoticed, or be buried in bureaucracy.
- We have progressive benefits and a bonus package.
- Product: Running requirements gathering sessions, driving governance and decision making, performing horizontal and vertical competitive research.
- Consulting: Guiding customers and partners through the entire production process from kickoff to launch.
- Harnessing the Vision: Distilling ideas, thoughts, and vision into actionable tasks and goals - using wireframes and written documentation (user stories) to communicate your vision.
- Development: Shepherding the customer through the agile development process, including running planning, standups, retros where appropriate.
