What you’ll be doing...
You will be joining Verizon Business Group’s Product Development Organization as a critical member of the Cross Portfolio Support Team. VBG’s Product Development is responsible for the creation and lifecycle management of wireless and wireline products for all segments including Global Enterprise, Business Markets, Public Sector, and Wholesale. The Cross Portfolio team enables and ensures all the critical functions are cared for within the business.
To join this team, you could be an automation wizard and efficiency expert – someone that excels in automating complicated workflows and enjoys keeping a vast and complex organization moving forward at great speed.
Maybe you are a top-notch visual communicator and information designer – able to transform complex ideas into compelling infographics and executive presentations.
Or perhaps you can crunch financials with the best of them – juggling expense, capital and revenue with ease.
Possibly you dabble in all of these things.
No matter what, in this role, you will help identify, prioritize, structure, and lead multiple projects in a fast-paced environment. You may not know all the answers, but you have a proven track record of working through difficult challenges by independently researching potential directions, collaborating with others, and iterating to find solutions. You are an unstoppable force while working through challenges, establishing and improving the organization as you go.
You will work with all levels of management, including executive leadership so strong communication skills are required. In addition, you will work to establish strong partnerships both within the product organization and with our partner organizations such as Finance, Network, IT, Marketing, Sales, and Strategy.
Working with limited direction, usually within a complex and often ambiguous environment, to drive rigorous, fact-based recommendations to senior management, other executive, functional, or regional management while supporting syndication with stakeholders across the organization.
Creating and maintaining executive level presentations for strategy and transformation initiatives, operational, business case development, capital, and go-to-market plans.
Developing executive communications for product strategy and revenue generation plans.
Prioritizing actionable business improvement initiatives based on analysis of customer, stakeholder, and employee feedback.
Project managing of cross-tower organization initiatives and action registers; coordinating resources to achieve project goals.
Gathering and analyzing data in order to fulfill regular and ad-hoc requests including executive level escalations.
Developing strong collaborative relationships with executive-level staff in order to assess and meet the needs of the business.
