Position Summary
Sr Manager, Program Manager II (PM II) oversees the fulfillment of larger organizational goals in a highly technical environment. They manage a program, giving detailed attention to program strategy, project delegation, and program implementation. They coordinate activities between multiple projects without directly managing them. PM II guides all of the projects – and project managers – housed within one program.

PM II should have an advanced knowledge of design control, change control, and risk management as they relate to medical device development and/or production.
