As a great Agile Manager, you don’t ask ‘How can I manage this team?’, but instead ask ‘What does this team need in order to manage itself?’ Creating an environment that encourages high-performing agile feature squads to flourish and produce value is your pathway to delighting customers. You will have an active role leading the implementation of the new agile way of working over multiple locations (Bratislava, Vienna) and be responsible for the adoption, success, and ongoing improvement of agile development within the squads. Identifying queues and excess Work in Progress (WIP) allows you to continually focus on eliminating waste and delays. You inspire and motivate others by empowering them with guidance and belief, nurturing a culture of relentless improvement that protects the resources required for teams to innovate and iterate.


What you’ll bring with you

  • Expertise and experience in agile development methodologies and lean approaches
  • Confidence and skills to manage 2-3 feature squads totaling ~30 motivated employees
  • Management 3.0 track record: doing the right thing right, by treating the organisation as a community of people working together toward a shared purpose
  • An ability to face-off against senior level management in both IT and business
  • Experience with staffing, salary and bonus distribution and supporting hiring targets
  • Knowledge of formalizing and tracking KPIs and targets for each squad

You will impress us by

  • Providing a clear purpose, focus, stability, and personal growth for your teams, acting as “servant leader”
  • Creating a trust-based environment and sharing your experiences unconditionally
  • Understanding the importance of bold experimentation and embracing continuous improvement
  • Valuing team culture over project culture
  • Expressing your values and opinions in fluent English

Why you will like us

  • We work hard, but in a relaxed, open and seriously cool environment
  • We provide everything you need to work (e.g., MacBook Pro, mobile device, licenses) and lots of additional benefits
  • We offer flexible working hours and are open for remote working
  • We care for your personal well-being and career development while actively supporting your educational needs
  • We communicate and collaborate with a variety of tools including Slack, Confluence and JIRA
  • We encourage regular conference visits.
  • We feed you with coffee, sweets and fruits and provide table soccer and table tennis to train the stuff away
