Agile Delivery Manager - Platform / Cloud
Oscar Technology are partnered with one our long-standing e-commerce clients, supporting their search for a new Agile Delivery Manager to support their Squads delivering their core Cloud-hosted platform.
They are 2 years into a digital transformation programme, which has seen them introduce scaled Agile into their business and reorganise their delivery teams into the Squads, Tribes and Chapters model. Their practices are continuing to evolve with them increasingly moving their technology stack away from COTS platforms and monolithic architectures, to developing their own API driven services, based around AWS-hosted microservices.
This Agile Delivery Manager would help support the Squads delivering their core infrastructure and cloud platforms. Working with a cross-functional team, plus Product Managers and Business Analysis, you'll be helping to prioritise delivery, removing impediments and helping to empower decision making from within the team.
The business are still evolving into a Agile-led firm so you'll be bringing external expertise and knowledge help continuous refine and improve Lean Agile practices, with within your Squads but also in collaboration with your peers. You will recognise how to apply Lean Agile practices in a pragmatic fashion (not people who's head explodes if things are done exactly like the Agile manifesto suggests!) and be an expert in building consensus with your teams and the wider business.
Longer term, there is scope to progress within the business, either into Lead Delivery roles are moving into Subject Matter Expert roles.
Our client practiced flexible working prior to Covid and will continue to do post-pandemic and offer a great benefits package, including a bonus scheme.
Oscar Technology is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
