Description

ABOUT THE ROLE:

We are looking for an expert in agile delivery practices to help facilitate product development and coach our engineering teams as we scale rapidly following recent investment.

This role will suit someone with considerable experience in software delivery or project management, and who understands how to get the best out of a highly skilled engineering team through facilitative management and servant leadership.

You are probably already working as a Scrum Master or Agile Coach, however whatever your current title - if you are interested in the role we’d love to hear from you.


You will be working alongside a Product Manager and engineering lead, and will be responsible for:


  • Facilitation of agile meetings, e.g. sprint planning, reviews, backlog refinement.
  • Coaching team(s), providing support and guidance towards continuous improvement.
  • Own documentation, schedule, & help the business understand progress through reporting and metrics.

  • Ensure clear communication at varying levels of technical sophistication, some of the topics that come up frequently include: decision logic, data & segmentation, APIs, machine learning, usability, permissions, tracking & redirects, and networking.

ABOUT THE TEAM:

Fresh8 Gaming are growing business with big ambitions. We’re all about collaboration and openness not command-and-control. We’re fast moving and are in a period of rapid product development and accelerated client growth. It’s interesting work in a fun and fast paced start-up like team environment that is constantly evolving, and we love finding people who challenge how we do things, bring new ideas to the table and are motivated to push us forward in an exciting space.


You will be joining a growing Operations team, who are supported by a very capable team of Front and Back-End Engineers following TDD principles and working within an Agile delivery framework.


We are dedicated to what we do, have a strong tech culture and offer a flexible working culture. We are an easy-going team who love all things tech but enjoy our bi-annual office parties, nights out and are planning a company week away in Europe early in the new year.
