Role

The Service Delivery Manager position offers an excellent career and growth opportunity for a talented and highly motivated professional with significant prior experience in I.T. operations and technical cloud operations.

Sourced is a small company that makes a tremendous impact and has specific knowledge and experience working in sophisticated, often complicated, and generally extensive, regulated environments. Our people are fearless and work in partnership with both client leadership and engineering teams to build world-class public cloud solutions in regulated and security-conscious verticals.

Reporting to the regional Head of Managed Services, this newly created position is responsible for leading a team of enthusiastic, capable, and motivated cloud operations engineers within the North American Region, as well as operational interlocks with other regions. The role is responsible for building, mentoring, and scaling the team and building and strengthening relationships with our key managed services clients.

As an increasing number of large enterprises move their critical systems to the cloud, we are in need of passionate technical leaders to help our largest customers navigate the operational challenges of cloud platform operations. You will work one-on-one with our top-tier customers and partners, supporting not only the software development lifecycle as it applies to the cloud services but also the operations management of active services, and business relationships between the Customer, Sourced Group, and partners (such as Microsoft, AWS, and application development partners).

In this role, you will have the opportunity to help shape and execute a strategy to build and expand our operational capabilities for cloud platform management. You must possess customer-facing skills that enable you to represent the Sourced team, our capabilities, and our services within a customer’s environment and drive discussions with senior personnel regarding incidents, trade-offs, best practices, and risk management. You should also have a demonstrated ability to think strategically about business, product, and technical challenges as you help our customers to build mature, stable, and secure operational cloud platforms.

As a Service Delivery Manager, you will be the primary operational point of contact for one or more customers, helping to plan, review, and oversee ongoing operations of business-critical applications. You will leverage your broad experience, troubleshooting application, network, database, and architectural challenges, as well as guiding the team in using the suite of cloud-native and internal tools to drive operational excellence. You will, in tandem with the Technical Lead / Architect, work across the customer organization to ensure applications are well designed, scale to their needs, maintain uptime whilst addressing any concerns regarding lifecycle, risk, and change impact. In this role, you will also act as the voice of the Customer within Sourced to escalate problems and to drive prioritization of business needs for our customers.

Each day will bring new challenges to which you will need to adapt and respond. Customer centricity, tenacity, and a sense of urgency will all contribute to your success in this role. You will:

  • Champion and advocate on behalf of Customer(s) within Sourced, to be their voice within the organization.
  • Act with a sense of urgency, be agile and pragmatic, and foster cross-team collaboration.
  • Solve technical issues, work directly with your team of managed services engineers, as well as escalate to subject-matter experts, and work directly with the cloud service provider(s) (AWS and Azure) to ensure customer issues are mitigated and resolved in an expeditious manner.
  • Facilitate and participate in architectural discussions to ensure solutions are designed for long term successful deployment and operational stability.
  • As required, define I.T. and business processes that work well with your customers’ expectations to streamline the performance of the services which we provide.
  • Engage with Director and C-Level executives to translate business needs into technical and operational plans, as well as to provide detailed reviews of service disruptions, metrics, and detailed prelaunch planning.
  • Analyze and present operational reviews to customer leadership, as well as roadmap and service improvement plans.
