Job Description

Do you dream in feedback loops? Can you recite the Agile Manifesto without hesitation? Is waiting for approval your greatest nemesis? Then look no further! Joining our growing practice of Business Agility coaches may just be the right step for you!

Your job

We operate across many different industries, ranging from automotive to banking and from aviation to energy. Here we advise and coach teams, programs and even the entire enterprise in adopting Business Agility and developing awesome services and products that their users crave. As a Senior Scrum Master in the Business Agility practice you will:

  • Need to be able to cover the basics of being a Scrum Master (facilitate team ceremonies, help to remove impediments, coach the Product Owner, manage team flow, etc.).
  • Coach existing teams to help them reach new levels of Agility.
  • Create new Agile teams from scratch and help them on their way to build valuable solutions.
  • Provide advice to managers, Product Owners and other stakeholders on how to lead the Agile transformation.
  • Engage in knowledge sharing sessions with your peers to grow as a group.
  • Teach training courses and workshops in for example DevOps, Scrum and the Scaled Agile Framework.
  • Take part in our Agile Coaching Traineeship and craft your personal learning journey together with your own mentor. And you have the ambition to become a mentor yourself.
  • Be expected to identify coaching questions outside of the team's scope and explore follow-up opportunities either for yourself or for colleagues in Business Agility.
  • Be supported by your colleagues to keep a healthy balance between client commitments and your personal well-being.

Your team

Our colleagues in the services-based Technology group help clients, both big and small, by revolutionizing their strategic blueprints for IT transformations. Which cloud platform fits best with client X? How do certain IT-solutions impact the risk analysis of suppliers? How can organizations become more agile and through what process are new applications developed from design thinking workshops?

Working closely alongside clients and an international team of professionals, you will develop innovative solutions based on their roadmaps, through mediums such as robotics and artificial intelligence. Throughout the blueprint process you will engage in the development of defense strategies, combining technology and user behavior, to ensure the security of your client. Together we connect the needs of clients with upcoming innovative technologies to prepare them for the future.
