Agile Coach - Technical Operations

  • Date Posted:
    21 Mar 2019
 As a market leader in the energy trading industry, we are naturally passionate about our software. Our teams are brilliant and know how to build great products, but like most teams they need support and coaching to help them move into the next level. Whilst our software practices are fairly mature, we’re a little behind the curve when it comes to our DevOps adoption. We want to change this now. 
 
Our Operations teams are going through a transition from traditional, process-centric approach to a more modern way of thinking about operations, leading eventually to a fully fledged DevOps organisation. That’s not easy and the changes required present both technical and cultural challenges. 
We already made good progress on our journey but we’ve come to realise we are now at a point we need a dedicated person to help us get there.
We are looking for a person who lives and breathes the agile values, and loves to help teams focus on delivering high quality outcomes. That’s the bedrock. 
 
But really, that’s just the start. We also need you to help grow the team into a highly performing team. Whatever it takes. Interested?

THE RIGHT CANDIDATE 
To be successful in this role you should have most of the following:
3 years’ experience (or more!) as a Scrum Master/Agile Coach across multiple companies
Ability to influence technical discussions to successful outcomes

Strong Kanban/Lean experience 
Demonstrable experience maturing teams to a performing stage
Pragmatic approach to agile and ability  to adjust techniques to work in the right context
Hands-on technical background, ideally with familiarity with operations/DevOps.

IMPORTANT NOTE
We believe that agile values and principles can work across any team. But we also accept that Operations, by its nature, is slightly different than software development and as such, some tweaks are required to fit the team’s work. If your passion is mainly around software products, this might not be the right role for you.
