Senior Product Owner

NOTES: 11/5/20 – This is with a Different Org at Maxar than we have worked with before.  Thye have approval to get these 2 positions onboarded and hoping these hires will get them more business within this organization.  However there is a chance that these roles may not get hired by Maxar as Trace 3 is also competing with another consulting service group. So the key is to find some very strong candidates to yield these hires and more work.

Key Skills: Mgmt. Consulting exp. BigX – Accenture, PWC, etc.
Not looking for someone who runs Their Own LLC consulting for Big firms.  They prefer someone who has worked directly for the big guys.

Wide range of experience other than just Product Owner would be nice – PM, Scrum Master, BA work. Etc.

Agile/Scrum is key but Maxar is still Moving toward AGILE –in SAFE framework.  They will straddle multiple teams.

PO model – Should be a go getter, flexible. Navigate political environment.  Understand they are not fully in AGILE and Safe.
