WHY PILLAR? WHY NOT?
Pillar Technology is a high-tech consulting company taking marketing and strategy by the horns, with an unmatched company culture. Inspired by the inventions of the future, we fuse software craftsmanship, creativity and innovation together to solve our clients’ most challenging problems. And the driving force behind it all? Our people—the Pillar family.
DELIVERY LEAD, WHAT?
When you take the best traits of a project manager, scrummaster, account manager, therapist, coach and consultant, you’ll get what we like to call a delivery lead. Our delivery leads are successful because they have:
- Hands-on experience in both Agile and traditional practices, including decomposing business problems through user stories, facilitating team cadence meetings, expertly responding to change and effectively utilizing metrics. An understanding of extreme programming practices is also key.
- Techie tendencies—or at least some technical acumen or experience in software development.
- A devotion to uncovering the “why” of any situation.
- Strong business acumen with the ability to quickly build rapport with a client in an unfamiliar environment.
- Passion for people and a demonstrated ability to build and lead a diverse group of people. This includes providing performance feedback, coaching and mentoring, so strong communication skills are a must.
- A desire to engage in healthy conflict to ensure the best solutions prevail.
ARE YOU A GAME CHANGER?
Our mission is to provide an environment where people do what they love and feel empowered to influence change. Of course our open and flexible workspaces, fully-stocked fridge and pantry help create a thriving work ecosystem. But we also support this goal in ways that can’t be contained within four walls—so whether you are working at a client site or at home from your patio, the Forge mindset goes where you go.
- “No-constraints” thinking—we’re talking “change the world” kind of thinking.
- Team members who push you to succeed, because they expect you to do the same for them.
- Diverse and changing work environments.
- Learning, sharing and working closely with other team members because we take the “two heads are better than one” saying very seriously.
- A “Speed-to-Value” approach to solving problems and delivering value.
- Open communication across the company—direct, expert and personal.
- Active participation in Agile and software craftsmanship communities and we hope you do the same!
- Having a direct impact on projects by commuting across Southeast Michigan to work personally with clients and teams.
