  • Support tactical software development activities by collaborating with cross-departmental team members individually and in meetings to ensure that work items are thorough for the developers & QA team members who consume them, and that product outputs are meaningful for the customers who receive them.
  • Lead and participate in regular meetings within the software development lifecycle to work effectively with cross-disciplinary stakeholders and teammates.
