Squad Lead – FFIO Data (Grade 6)
The Purpose of Your Role
The Data (DAL-SDS) squad leader will be the primary contact for leveraging the data distribution capabilities and solutions with a focus on data strategy implementation. This position will also need to drive the roadmap to provide support for the Tribe and platform consumers to drive data-driven enhancements. A strong leader who is truly consumer obsessed loves working with a team to design and deliver exceptional value to consumers, and effectively collaborates within and across tribes (as appropriate) and with chapter leaders/team leaders to ensure alignment and appropriate execution for the work of the squad. As the squad leader, you will act as product owner, bringing your squad together to first deeply understand the consumer needs, envision the product offering, work with other squad members to prioritize and manage the work, and take the lead to effectively prioritize and resolve dependencies. You will partner with chapter and team leadership to define the work and align the right talent to drive the desired results and customer outcomes. You bring to this role strong business/technical knowledge, outstanding leadership and collaboration skills, and a fact-based, data-driven approach to understanding consumer needs. You embrace the totality of the squad’s mission with a desire to more deeply learn less familiar aspects of the work, including technology. You are energized by working collaboratively to drive consumer value and drive strong business outcomes. You are team-oriented and able to both align the squad’s work with PIs, and your tribe’s, overall strategic objectives and balance the needs of your squad with broader FFIO priorities.
