JOB DESCRIPTION :
Are you looking for a position that brings new challenges and excitement on a daily basis? Are you a business area expert who embraces technology? Then you may be the perfect fit for our Business Release Manager position on the EDR Project Team. The EDR Project is made up of three design stages and nine releases that deliver major functionality across the enterprise. Each release can be described as a project in itself due to the complexity and level of effort to deliver. The first two EDR design stages focused primarily on; 1) PIT Tax Return and Payment Processing; and 2) PIT Correspondence Processing and TP folder development. The third release focuses on PIT & BE Return Analysis (also known as validation). The first two stages were foundational and now this third stage builds upon that foundation to generate over half of the $4.7 Billion dollar revenue goal with $1B revenue commitment annually thereafter. Under the direction of the EDR Business Director, the incumbent(s) are responsible for holistically managing the EDR releases to insure business areas are prepared to successfully implement, support, and maintain the new functionality and processes, as well as ensure the new functionality supports the business vision of the EDR project. The Release Manager will work through a matrix organization of peers and related staff within and outside the EDR Project Team. The Release Manager will coordinate each EDR release to insure the new deliverables are fully utilized and current processes are not disrupted. This includes, but is not limited to, working with the EDR Application Development Team, EDR Technical Architecture Team, EDR Business Implementation Team, EDR Testing Team, FTB Operations Team, and FTB Business and Process Owners and impacted staff throughout FTB.
