Title: Senior Delivery Manager
Rachel Matz brings 15 years industry experience to her role as Senior Delivery Manager at Universal Mind. Through continuous, open communication, detailed planning, and proactive risk mitigation, she ensures that our projects are successfully delivered within scope, within budget, and on time. Specializing in Agile Development processes and management, she is a Certified Scrum Master and skilled Agile Business Analyst. She helps clients better understand their business needs, as well as how to translate those needs into detailed requirements and useful deliverables. She truly enjoys the relationship building aspect of being a delivery manager, both with clients and as a part of building project teams. In a nutshell, she juggles a lot of balls and makes sure they all stay up in the air; which is no easy feat.
Prior to Universal Mind, Rachel owned her own business consulting company, Project Power Consulting, where she helped clients achieve success using technology and collaboration. Her clients included the National Center for Women and Information Technology, and Coca-Cola, among others. Having her own company helped her gain a deeper understanding of all the aspects required to run a successful organization and exceed customer expectations. Before starting Project Power Consulting, she worked at various technology start-up companies and spent several years at a healthcare robotics company where she developed a passion for embedded controls. Through these experiences, Rachel found she thrives in situations where she is able to wear many hats.
Rachel received her MBA with a specialization in IT in 2001 from the University of Denver. These days, she makes her trek to the downtown Denver office from outside of Boulder, where she loves being outdoors in the sunshine. She is an avid snowboarder and rock climber, and the mother to two amazing kids, who keep her active, curious, and on her toes. If she has any spare time left, you will probably find her doing voiceover work, another passion of hers. In fact, you’ve probably heard her voice on your tv, radio or computer. She won’t tell you this, but she’s kind of a big deal.
