Agile Coach who can bring SDC forward on our agile journey
At SDC, we live for technology – and our many financial customers live for what technology can do for them. And for their customers. It calls for an agile mindset, and we are well underway with the agile methods where it makes sense.
It's all about bringing people, processes and technology together to find the most appropriate and efficient way of working. Not only can agile principles increase team productivity, product quality and adaptability in the departments where they are introduced. Often, the joy and motivation of the small independent teams spreads to the rest of the organization.
The agile work is well underway - but the role of Agile Coach is still new at SDC
The time has come to speed things up, so now we are looking for YOU who can further develop and disseminate a common method and influence SDC in an even more agile direction.
You will become part of our agile competence center, which will be your home base, where you are surrounded by committed colleagues. We need someone with a sharp skillset to create a central anchoring of the agile initiatives in SDC and be an agile beacon.
A strategic, tactical, and operational role
The role of agile coach is wide-ranging – balanced between being an "evangelist" and a hands-on internal consultant. A good day for you is used among teams as you guide them to become even better. You succeed in inspiring people to create change and improve their way of working. You are curious to understand the context in which the team operates, identify obstacles to become more agile, and together with the team create a plan for further development.
The operational part takes up a lot of capacity: It is you, who step in and help when the participants in a project have limited agile knowledge and experience in the agile method or want sparring with an expert in the field. You will also have the opportunity to teach.
You will work both with individual teams and with departments that are at different maturity levels and guide them in establishing and applying the right processes, roles, and tools. You can also go into an existing team; clarify what level each team member is at and help them develop together.
At the same time, in cooperation with the team in our agile competence center, you will advise the organization on which cross-organizational initiatives should be launched to support and improve the agile method, e.g., within collection of requirements or test automation.
Certified Scrum Master or Agile Guru who is good at change management
To be successful in the job, you need to find a good balance between a strong knowledge of methods and a pragmatic, solution-oriented approach. You thrive in a role where you lead by example, and you are motivated by working in a continuous learning and developing environment. And your good communication skills allow you to drive change and influence your colleagues.
You have a minimum of 3 years of experience with digital processes, product development – e.g., from the role of Scrum Master or Agile Coach. You can facilitate Scrum events from the first establishment of a Product backlog to a sprint retrospective that provides value for the team because you have done it many times and in several teams. You are also experienced in making collaboration between teams and stakeholders work, perhaps from a scaled, agile organization.
You have a relevant long-term education and experience from a regulated industry such as banking, pharma / medicine, finance, or the like. You speak and write fluent Danish and English, as about a third of our colleagues work in Warsaw.
A great place to work!
Here you get an exciting and varied position, which you yourself help to define and fill. You will be part of an ambitious workplace with a wide range of financial customers throughout the Nordic region. We have high expectations of each other and think it's fun to succeed together. And even though everyday life is busy at times, we always help each other. In addition, we emphasize professional and personal development, and there will be opportunities for participation in courses, conferences, etc.
We offer an attractive salary package and good employment conditions, good work-life balance, 6th holiday week, care days and health insurance, just to name some of the benefits. And then you become part of a modern IT company with more than 700 employees and almost 60 years of history.
We look forward to hearing from you
If you have any questions about the position, you can call the Head of Department for PMO and Agile@SDC, Mathias Hollensen, at tlf.nr.: +45 2946 4216.
A motivated application is welcome, but your CV can also stand alone. We will talk about your motivation for the job, if you are called for an interview. We hold regular interviews with relevant candidates, so do not hesitate to send your application.
A bit about SDC
It all started back in 1963, when a series of small savings banks went hand in hand with a dream of economies of scale and electronic bookkeeping. That dream still drives us. Today, we are 100+ both small and large banks from all over the Nordic region, who are part of the community, because shared solutions make us stronger.
We are over 700 colleagues in Ballerup and Warsaw, who work together every day to deliver a good banking experience to the users of 100+ Scandinavian banks. Many of our solutions are developed jointly for all customers - some for a small group. Common to them is that we want to maximize the customers’ benefit from the solutions and minimize the risk of not meeting the customers' needs.
The future demands more of SDC. The banks are working to adapt to the needs of the market, at the same time they are being met with increasing demands for regulation and efficiency. SDC works hard to be at the forefront of the customers’ needs and continue to be the preferred provider of solutions to Scandinavian banks.
