Company: Palo Alto Networks, Inc.
Location: Santa Clara
Posted on: September 17, 2020

Job Description:

At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission:

Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.

We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren’t easy goals to accomplish – but we’re not here for easy. We’re here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we’re looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.

We are looking for an experienced IT Portfolio and Delivery Manager to innovate and execute on our program management practices. Working collaboratively with the VP of IT Strategy, this senior IT manager will develop best-in-class processes that are simple, scalable, and results-oriented. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in agile methodologies, and possess deep expertise in effectively implementing these methodologies across a fast-paced, dynamic organization. This role requires expert communication skills with an ability to distill complex programs into concise and well-articulated presentations at scale. This position will make data-driven decisions to continuously optimize the IT project portfolio. All of this will be accomplished by building strong cross-functional partnerships.

Your Impact

Lead and facilitate regular portfolio management team meetings, cross-functional dependencies, risk mitigation, and programs progress tracking.

Effectively work with Product Managers, Product Owners, and Scrum Masters to align business strategy and program execution.

Plan, coordinate and manage a large portfolio of IT Initiatives while anticipating, minimizing and mitigating risks.

Build out integrated dashboards that effectively communicate accomplishments, progress, issues, and risks by compiling data from multiple sources (e.g. JIRA, smartsheets).

Develop and deliver presentations, memos, and reports for the executive team.

Manage and influence large cross-functional teams to deliver optimal results.

Iterate on portfolio and program management standards and successfully deploy across the IT organization.

Demonstrate a curiosity and a lean towards challenging existing processes to continuously optimize.

Assist with the development of business case and business value analyses.

Your Experience

10+ years of IT Portfolio Management/PMO experience in an agile environment.

Experience driving quarterly portfolio planning workshops using proven frameworks to optimize ROI and measurable business value.

Expert at business case development with a focus on TCO / ROI assessments.

Possess strong communication skills both presentation and memo formats.

Able to thrive in a fast-paced and highly technical IT environment with a strong foundational understanding of enterprise applications, infrastructure, information security, and operations.

Hands-on expertise working with Agile/Scrum methodologies including agile tools (Jira, Confluence, smart sheet) required.

Capable of hands-on build up of dashboards, data queries, and data analysis using tools such as tableau.

A self-starter that uses great judgment to keep programs and projects moving forward and completed on target.

Proven track record of achieving results through collaboration and teamwork.

Incredible attention to detail and a drive that motivates others on the team.

Highly collaborative team player that is comfortable providing and receiving open, real-time feedback to continuously up-level team performance.

All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.

It's incredible how quickly the time has flown by since I joined the program, yet I also feel I've gotten the opportunity to do so much in just a short time. During my first year at Palo Alto Networks, I focussed on building a Telemetry platform that helps our customers maximize the benefits they enjoy from the products and services that Palo Alto Networks delivers.

Unlike many of my colleagues, who knew early in life that they wanted to pursue careers in cybersecurity or computer science, my background includes a variety of different, seemingly unrelated experiences. I grew up in Taiwan and was interested in international affairs and communications, so I attended college at National Chengchi University and earned my bachelor’s degree in diplomacy. After graduating, I gave myself two years to explore any career that interested me. I worked for a short time as a set designer with a filmmaking team, and then I worked as an editor for a company that published a design magazine and did public relations.

I was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan, a country that most people in the world haven’t heard of, and I speak both Russian and English. I lived in that country until I was about 24, after I earned my master’s degree in information systems. I never planned to get into sales at all. I set out to be a software developer, but I couldn’t code to save my life, so I went into systems administration, which basically meant I was in charge of everything that plugged into a socket and related to information technology.

We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all qualified individuals with a disability. If you require assistance or accommodation due to a disability or special need, please contact us at accommodations@paloaltonetworks.com .
