  • Role: Worked in a busy agile Core Team (the Product Experience and Engagement Team) within a virtualized department of 98 international IT and business professionals (part of the company’s global 500-person IT Group spread across 4 locations). This flexible and relatively small team within our huge matrix-type organization served as a ‘logical bridge’ that translated heavy/big and complex global business strategies and problems into light/lean and marketable (and good-looking) solutions across a portfolio of all B2B and some B2C products – for both core fleets and subsidiary fleets worldwide. I contributed to and led a number of ongoing revenue generators – web, mobile, cloud and custom, including a fair amount of hardware integration – by collaborating in cross-functional teams to design, develop, deploy, improve, and market solutions for 3000+ enterprise clients, 1000+ vendors, 10+ thousand internal users, and 500+ million annual users/visitors.

A Bit More

Our global department focused on B2B/enterprise clients but was also often tasked with assisting with some of the biggest B2C/consumer products. Our group included strategists, designers, product managers, business developers, software and hardware engineers and QA specialists, among others – with focus on the company’s global product strategy and customer experience. This encompassed a broad range of product design, development and marketing initiatives. We worked in 3-week Agile sprints but had some waterfall jobs every now and then. About 70% of my effort was allocated toward my immediate team, and the rest was dedicated to contributing to a variety of cross-functional ‘fluid project groups’ (which can be product-driven or project-driven) of 5-20 members responsible for development, maintenance, improvement and usability standardization of products and services – including software and hardware – across the company’s [a] core transport fleet, [b] external B2B clients, and (c) subsidiary business groups, such as Air France Cargo and KLM Cargo as well as Air Tahiti, Alitalia, Hop, Kenya Airways, Cityhopper, Martinair and Transavia.
