  • Skilled in navigating and influencing across organisational boundaries, fostering a collaborative environment.
  • Experience managing internal staff and contract service providers, including Azure DevSecOps engineers, service architects, full stack software engineers, test engineers, delivery managers, scrum masters, and business analysts.
