Agile Coach (3-month Contract, possibility of Extension)

With very strong sponsorship from senior management, and a workforce that is keen to adopt the principles of agile (with some flavor of Scrum), this an excellent opportunity for the right candidate who wants to take a whole company on the journey to Agile. With 170 employees, Lendinvest is a growth-stage startup that is looking to accelerate it’s development processes and foster closer collaboration between tech and the business. Agile adoption is cornerstone to this challenge.

The Role:

The candidate should expect to do the following:

Educate: You will teach colleagues at all levels, including senior, on Agile principles, providing them with tools for implementing the process in their own work. This should be done through training sessions that teach valuable skills that lead toward the organization-wide adoption of Agile methodologies.

Mentor: As a mentor, you will be responsible for guiding teams into the Agile methodology, providing employees with feedback and means of improvement, catalyzing organizational growth and answering questions. Provide hands-on support to all employees, collaborating with people across widely varying levels and roles, leading teams toward further understanding and adoption of Agile as well as overall company growth and improvement.

Strategy: You will be responsible for designing a strategy for the organizational adoption of Agile. This includes every stage of adoption, from the introduction of Agile and employee education, to fostering teams and cultures that practice Agile, to sustaining Agile methodologies and continually offering strategies for improvement.

Agile is already the status-quo in the tech-team, so this role will be heavily focused on the rest of the business.
