Release Train Engineer, UHC IS - Telecommute (749873)

Position Description

Ready to raise your game by a quantum leap?


At UHC, we're focused on doing things that have not been done yet; helping improve lives in ways that were unthinkable until we thought of them. We've spent decades investing in the technology and information capabilities that help us bring new ideas to market faster.


We've developed solutions that are practical today and scalable for tomorrow. And we've created collaborative teams dedicated to innovation across each of our businesses.


The Release Train Engineer (RTE) facilitates Train level processes and execution, escalates impediments, manages risks, and recommends Train level improvements.

  • Tech leader: An RTE leads by example rather than directing teams. RTEs create an environment of mutual influence. They persuade rather than use authority. They think beyond day-to-day activities and support the teams' commitments. They ask teams for answers and let them self-organize. They inspire creativity and innovation. They mentor others to collaborate continuously.
  • System thinker: RTEs analyze the entire software development environment. They anticipate outcomes, problems, bottlenecks, and dependencies, and then use  experience to optimize delivery.      
  • Communicative: RTEs communicate well with all levels of the organization from agile team members to executives, improving transparency and sharing information.
  • Assertive: RTEs ensure the organization adheres to OSAM principles and practices. They sometimes help to make the tough call.
  • Agile knowledge: RTEs have a good understanding of OSAM and its principles. They understand the impact of scaling and use that knowledge to help mitigate the costs and inefficiencies associated with it. They are continuous learners and that knowledge to improve their programs.

You'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges.


Primary Responsibilities

  • Keep the Train moving in the right direction: The Train's ability to meet business needs is the highest objective. RTEs help facilitate and coordinate the events that allow the teams to be successful in that execution. They coordinate Train level events for planning and feedback. RTEs constantly inspect and adapt to increase efficiencies and improve OSAM maturity. They escalate removal of impediments to agile teams and coordinate dependencies between Trains.
  • Mentor: RTEs help the Train improve their agile maturity. They provide thought leadership and recommendations across the program. They also actively contribute to the OSAM communities.
  • Create and maintain partnerships: The Train leadership (business, execution, and IT) must be in sync on their vision, plan, and execution practices. If they are not, they may create confusion among the teams. RTEs play a key role in creating partnerships at the Train level that build trust and respect. They seek to foster a team collaborative environment that tears down silos between groups—helping them act as a whole.

  • 2+ years of work experience as a Release Train Engineer using Agile delivery frameworks
