Agile Delivery Manager (m/f/d) for George

Job description

Banking has a name. And we create it.

For more than 5 million customers across Europe, George stands for a digital banking experience that combines design and technology on an open platform. At Erste Group IT, we strive for everyone. We achieve this by empowering people to understand, manage and, last but not least, enjoy one of their most personal things: their money.


Join us in our agile environment and make banking simple, intelligent and personal again!

As an Agile Delivery Manager, you understand that there’s little question about your purpose – getting stuff delivered. You need to understand the business needs and be capable of managing expectations, provide clear direction and expected goals, while avoiding unnecessary escalations. By having a complete overview of planned delivery, and closely working with central squads and local digital teams in business and IT, you will ensure an impediment-free pathway. In achieving this goal, you need to communicate in one voice with your team and be transparent to challenges, providing an action plan to resolve the obstacles. You thrive in a dynamic working environment where agile is not only a mindset, but also a way of working and living.
