United Technologies Corporation Digital Strategy Integration Manager in East Hartford, Connecticut

Job ID: 49484BR

City: East Hartford

State: Connecticut

Country: United States

Category: General Management

Job Type: Full-Time

Description:

This position has two distinct job functions: 1) Explore and demonstrate possible applications of Data Science in the P&W Military businesses, and 2) Manage large scale projects using Agile methods to achieve standard ME-wide processes.

In the Data Science role the employee is expected to identify novel applications of Data Science and create rapid prototypes illustrating the feasibility and potential impact of the idea. These activities will typically go from concept to working prototype in a matter of days or weeks.

In the Project Management role the employee is required to integrate business requirements across all ME programs to produce a unified vision and project plan for large scale IT development projects. This effort will require excellent project management skills as well as the ability to guide teams in a collaborative manner.

The synergy between these roles results from the distinctly different time scales and required focus, and from the natural progression of these Data Science prototypes. The project management activity is a relatively long-term function with varying levels of focus. During periods of lower activity, the employee can shift attention to a short-term concentrated prototyping/concept exploration activity. Successful prototypes which capture the organization's interest will naturally grow into ME-wide projects in which the employee will assume project management responsibilities.

Daily responsibilities will include:

  • Coordinating discussions between different parts of the business to establish unified processes and system requirements

  • Coordinating discussions between the business and IT organizations to ensure understanding of the requirements and ultimately delivery of systems that the business needs

  • Establishing project plans and ensuring the successful execution of those plans by anticipating and mitigating risks

  • Assisting with the creation of a vision for high-impact technology adoption within the business

  • Rapid prototyping of ideas to provide proof of concept and/or assessments of potential impact

  • Proposing specific projects to implement this vision, and securing the required funding, resources and approvals

  • Establishing and monitoring execution of SOW with external vendors providing labor for the execution of these projects

To support Data Science demonstration tasks the employee will require experience with a variety of tools, preferably including: Python, Excel/VBA, Machine Learning algorithms, SQL, Data Visualization tools (Business Objects, Lumira, Spotfire, etc.), R, etc.

Qualification: Basic Qualifications:

  • BA/BS degree w/6–10+ years related experience OR
