The Role

As a Senior Technical Program Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring mission success by owning the development and integration of Red 6’s products and technologies. These projects will be diverse in nature and require you to be organized and flexible to adapt to changing situations.

On one project, you may be working with the customer to clarify how each of its requirements can be met through Red 6’s core products, including the plan, scope and work required. In another situation, you may be acting as a hybrid product/project manager, crafting a vision with the customer, and leading a team of engineers to transform that vision into a tangible new product. During all of this, you must be able to collaborate with both external and internal partners, communicate plans clearly to all parties, and lead teams towards success.

Success in this position also hinges on systems/engineering experience, or the ability to learn technical concepts - mainly software related - quickly. Digging into the details to understand the system dependencies, technical risks and the impact of key architectural decisions with the engineering team is a must. You will be expected to utilize your technical capability in conjunction with your program/project management skills to deliver the best outcome for Red 6 and the customer.


Ownership: TPMs are owners; we’re looking for those who have a natural bias to assume responsibility, a healthy dose of skepticism, and contribute to a culture of performance. Lead the project from start to finish with the customer and the engineering team. Develop the technical path for success, identify engineering needs, and validate the projected product outcome with the customer. TPMs are empowered to quickly assume high levels of responsibility and entrust them to actively own their account and shape its success.

Embed/Engage: Work side-by-side with our customers to understand their specific mission challenges and represent the customer as you work with Red 6 engineers to shape products that solve critical national and international security challenges. Red 6 engineers rely on TPMs to understand the lay of the land and bring a perspective that informs the product development process.

Build/Orchestrate: Work with Red 6 engineers to build the solution and/or pivot development as needed to meet client needs. Successfully developing our complex hardware and software products requires collaborating with nearly every internal Red 6 team - engineering, product, logistics, finance, legal, contracting, technical operations, and many more. You’ll be responsible for ensuring each party is engaged and informed, and will therefore become well-versed in what it takes to really bring the best of Red 6 to our customers.

Plan: Develop, coordinate and communicate the path to success with both internal and external partners. Work with clients and engineers to build sprint plans, execution plans, milestones.

Grow our business through customer success: In addition to the operational and executive relationships you own, you will be responsible for meeting commercial targets that drive top line growth. This requires establishing committed and trust-based partnerships with our customers to not only help them solve their immediate problems, but also to foresee future opportunities where Red 6’s technology can make them more effective. Understanding Red 6’s value proposition and articulating how we can have an impact on a customer’s problem set, from the executive level to the end user, is critical to positioning Red 6 for the future.
