About the role...

We’re looking for a passionate, high-agency Agile Delivery Manager to join our company. Your mission is to chase down and remove all impediments for a dedicated scrum team so you can all concentrate on quickly and sustainably delivering value for our customers and business.

Your work will be framed by three questions:

2. Delivery: What can be done to identify and remove all impediments faced by the scrum team in delivering value for our customers? 

3. Agile & lean practices: How can we ensure a culture of continuous learning when it comes to agile and lean practices?

What you'll get to do?

  • Technical discovery:
  • Detailed discovery on things like payment files, bank or operational flows and systems maps

  • Stakeholder management
  • Reporting and managing operational delivery metrics
  •  Agile & lean practices:

  • Suggesting improvements to agile ways of working
