Always looking to better ourselves, we're adopting an agile environment to increase innovation and collaboration. You will use your expertise in Scrum and Kanban to lead us through the adoption, implementation and maintenance of agile processes, principles and practices across the team. You'll work directly with the team to identify, prioritize and eliminate obstacles in the development process. In other words, you will help make sure things run smoothly - all the time.

We'll trust you to:

  • Perform ongoing assessments of the teams' Scrum maturity and implement iterations as needed
  • Cultivate communities of practice
  • Partner with product owners to ensure vision, roadmap and personas are well defined
  • Help teams continuously reflect and improve, becoming more effective in their roles and increasing their predictability, collaboration and quality practices
  • Ensure adherence to Agile methodology including sprint events (stand-ups, demos, retrospectives), road mapping, backlog management (definition, grooming, prioritization), sizing and task estimation and velocity tracking

You need to have:

  • Exposure practicing Scrum and Lean Start-up methodologies
  • Exposure to real-world scrum, guiding organisations through Scrum adoption
  • Professional experience as a hands-on software developer
  • Demonstrated experience with change management across multiple teams, products, environments and technologies
  • Familiarity with SAFe, LeSS or other approaches for scaling agile

We'd love to see:

  • Scrum Coach Certification (CSC)
  • Working knowledge of Atlassian tools
