What you’ll be doing
You’ll be the one to facilitate the release process activities. However this is something the Producers also has the knowledge to do, so it won’t solely be reliant on you. But you’ll be the overall responsible and drive the continuous improvements for the release process.
You’ll liaise with other departments/stakeholders on tech matters affecting release plans. You’ll support tech team in pipeline development, be part of the product strategy, flagging for potential issues and helping to mitigate risks relating to release plans. This includes supporting the features with planning for and rolling out new functionality in the app. You’ll be the one to make sure platform tech and compliance requirements are reflected in development plans.
Who you are
You have been part of the app release process many a times and is well versed in the Amazon, App- and Playstore universe and the submission processes.
You probably come from an engineering and/or test background.
You enjoy driving change and making improvements to already existing processes.
This position isn’t about maintaining what’s already in place, it’s all about making it better.
Which means you have to be a good communicator as well as great at building relationships with stakeholders and partners, both internal and external.
