Your Mission:

Our team is Problem management. Problem management is the process of identifying and managing the causes of incidents on an IT service. It is a core component of ITSM frameworks.


We are focused on working collaboratively with product owners and developers as well as engineering and operations teams across the organization.  We also engage with professional services and customer success teams to help improve the customer experience.  One of our team’s key focal points is to drive root cause analysis (RCA) in response to critical incident response triage events (CIRT) by applying frameworks such as Six Sigma to help prevent recurring issues that may impact the customer experience.  Our team has a seat at the table to drive positive change in our software development lifecycle (SDLC) where our team brings a unique insight for areas of improvement.

Your Competencies:

You are a passionate experienced technologist with deep roots in both public and private cloud that enjoys working collaboratively across the organization to solve problems while ensuring maximum reliability and quality in our products.  In this role you will coordinate, standardize, and lead problem management activities ensuring root cause and prevention is identified within the prescribed time frame. You will also bring your ability to proactively detect and prevent future problems/incidents and initiate the Problem Management process to allow quicker diagnosis and resolution. Additionally, you will be skilled at preparing statistics, KPI and trend reports for use in the problem management process. This skill will help identify problems through the review and focus on optimizing processes. In the end this will also help ensure that you develop trend analysis and prepare service improvement plans to address identified gaps.  As you work to deliver trend analysis and improvement plans you will coordinate, convene and facilitate major incident and problem review meetings.  In these meetings you will collaborate with subject matter experts to refine operating processes and procedures to deliver and restore service more efficiently.  This will require you to engage and share recommendations with representatives from R&D and operations teams to help drive adoption of improvement initiatives.  As a highly skilled professional you strive to ensure that the problem management information reflects accuracy at all times and is complete.  You will ensure your findings are managed and maintained in a problem management database accessible to all team members.
