About Elabor8

As one of Australia's fastest growing consultancies, we are passionate about all things Agile and Lean.

We launched our business in 2009, and during these eight years have built an amazing reputation as experts in the Agile Transformation and Delivery, Lean Business Architecture, and Product Design & Innovation spaces.

Listed four years running on BRW’s Fast 100 (2014-2017), demand for our services is high and so we're looking for an experienced Agile Coach to join the team.

What you'll do as an Agile Coach:

  • You'll consult and work closely with a variety of programs/projects (across a variety of domains) in client organisations ranging from digital start-ups to large corporates.
  • You'll leverage your deep knowledge of several agile methods (e.g. Scrum, XP, Lean Software Development, Kanban, LeSS, SAFe, etc.), acting as an agile champion and contributing to expanding the understanding and practice of agile principles and values;
  • You'll work across multiple teams, helping them to better organise themselves to remove dependencies and to increase synchronisation;
  • You'll help with the decomposition of the program backlog and improve the processes for allocation of backlog items to teams and tracking of progress and dependencies;
  • You'll use your understanding of team dynamics and agile leadership to identify key bottlenecks and to build a high-performing "team of teams";

About You

As an experienced Agile practitioner, you possess a proven track record in developing agile teams. You are an innovative thinker and you keep up with the latest development in Agile practices by attending meetups and by maintaining a rich network of other practitioners.

To be considered for this role you will need:

  • Demonstrable experience in developing and managing relationships with a wide range of stakeholders
  • To be a flexible, proactive, solution-oriented person with strong relationship building skills
  • The ability to engage with businesses effectively and be proactive in establishing and maintaining contact

What we offer

  • Elabor8 offers you the chance to work in some of Australia's best technology environments, both in large corporate domains and with some of the country's most prominent online brands.
  • We augment on-the-job learning with a professional development budget and plan for every consultant, giving you $3,000 and five days to pursue formal training, conference attendance, workshops, self-study or other opportunities.
  • We regularly host brown bags, hackathons and internal training sessions to make sure that our consultants are aware of leading-edge tools and techniques. Finally, we push our people to share their own knowledge and build their profiles: through presenting, mentoring and blogging.
