* Stay up-to-date on release management best practices and serve as an SME for teams
* Understand and prioritize business needs to help deliver new features
* Hold teams accountable for their roles in deploying updates to production environments
* Participate in change management meetings and initiatives to discuss release scope

Experience and skills you'll need

* Solid understanding of the release process and the software development lifecycle
* Experience with continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD)

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.
