Head of Product Delivery Management (d/f/m)Ableton AG / Germany

Your mission

Your Mission

Delivery Management at Ableton is the work needed to get products and features shipped. Delivery Managers work closely with Product Managers and Product Owners, who are responsible for driving the product vision and priorities. The Head of Product Delivery Management is an overarching role within the Product Development unit who governs the processes necessary to keep an overview of how our initiatives are doing, enabling prioritization and removal of impediments for initiatives and supporting collaboration between teams. The role reports to the CTO and is part of the Product Development unit’s leadership team.

Future Potential

We tend to think of product development in terms of ‘product discovery’ and ‘product delivery’. The title of this role was chosen to reflect the focus on the ‘product delivery’ aspect. However, it is conceivable to enlarge this role over time in several ways, e.g. extending scope to aspects of product discovery, research and strategy creation.

Your tasks

  • Maintain and develop our framework for delivery management and cross team collaboration together with Delivery Managers and Product Managers.
  • Align terminology, planning formats, and tools for the unit where necessary.
  • Set up and run a Community of practice for Delivery Management to spread and strengthen the knowledge about Product Delivery in the department.
  • Make sure the plans for initiatives and the overall release roadmap inform each other.
  • Review the release plan with the Product Development leadership team.
  • Keep an overview of impediments and risks, and work with leadership to remove or mitigate them as needed.
  • Prepare staff allocation discussions and input for capacity planning and financial forecasting of expenses for the Product Development unit.
  • Work with the Company Release Planning group to prepare decisions around the release roadmap for the Executive Team.

Your profile

  • Solid understanding of the software development process.
  • Ability to structure and facilitate complex discussions about priorities and timelines.
  • Excellent knowledge about project management practices, agile as well as traditional methodologies and especially their combination (‘hybrid project management’).
  • Able to help teams pick the right tools for the job, both when it comes to ways of working and digital planning and task tracking tools.
  • Experience working with stakeholders in different parts of an organization.
  • Excellent collaborator, moderator and facilitator.
  • Experience with mentoring colleagues on project management practices.
  • You enjoy disentangling dependencies and highlighting the way forward, making teams feel confident that any challenges can be overcome.
  • Great at building trust with teams, Product Managers and Management.
  • Excellent spoken and written English.
