  • Anticipate and recognize potential conflicts and recommend solutions to the IT Manager for the team;
  • Take part in performance assessments in collaboration with the IT Manager.

Qualifications

  • Experience in team management, leadership, and negotiation;
  • Ability to demonstrate a track record of managing complex projects in both Agile and traditional practices; knowledge of ITIL processes is an asset;
  • Good skills and knowledge of prioritization, facilitation, and conflict resolution;
  • Understanding of information technology foundations (automation, infrastructure, CI/CD, DevOps);
