We are an open & collaborative Fintech unicorn that lives and breathes our company values: Be Human, Better Together and Own it.
Remote working?It’s a key topic at the moment, we have addressed this by implementing a “Remote-First” policy. What this ultimately means is you have the choice as to whether you Work Fully Remotely as long as you're UK or Netherlands based, or visit the lush offices in London, Cardiff or Amsterdam; it’s up to you!
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:
1. Technical discovery: Do the engineers and stakeholders have all the documentation and knowledge needed to deliver value for our customers and business?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?

  • Agile & lean practices:
  • - Leading/coordinating standard agile ceremonies - Suggesting improvements to agile ways of working

About you?

  • Experience
  • - 1 year + proven experience in an Agile Delivery Manager, Scrum Master or Business Analyst role, preferably in a software-first Fintech or start-up- In-depth knowledge of Agile process and principles, with real experience in creating working environments that adhere to them- Proven track record of chasing down impediments to deliver value for customers and business- Ability to communicate equally effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders- Preferably domain knowledge in Fintech - e.g. payments, FX, transaction banking or trading

  • Personal
  • - A self-starter who takes accountability for getting things done- Top-notch stakeholder management skills, including the ability to influence colleagues in small, cross-functional scrum teams- Exceptional structure and attention to detail- Comfortable challenging the status quo and always curious about the way things work- Great written and verbal communication skills- Comfortable working in a scale up or growth environment and as part of a wider team

Why Currencycloud?
We are a remote-first company; whichever location you’re contracted to, we leave it up to you and your manager to agree on how often you come into the office.
