Zen Ex Machina (ZXM) is looking for an Agile Consultant in Sydney Australia to join one of our Consultant Scrum Teams.
You need more than just a few certifications and not a reverse engineering of your project management experience on LinkedIn as "agile project management".
You need to be passionate about driving agile cultural and behavioural change, practice adoption, to ultimately improve the work lives of our customers.
We have no "managers". We're looking for people who can work in a Scrum Team and use Scrum with our other consultants to deliver value to clients as a team. If you know and love Scrum, this is how our entire organisation works.
This isn't a "sit back and impart your wisdom" job. This is a very hands-on role. It requires you to be active in investigating teams' agile competency, and using Scrum to drive improvements through a backlog of agile coaching activities owned by one of our Product Owners.
You need to have an understanding of the unique complexities, regulations and constraints of banking and insurance sector in Sydney.
We have a reputation for a very high standard of work. You must be precise and up-to-date in your agile terminology, be able to write to team-level and executive audiences, and work to a very high Definition of Done for consultant deliverables like reports.
We’re looking for people with deep, applied agile experience.
Serving as an organisational leader in a capacity other than as a coach, and serving as a solo Scrum Trainer in a classroom setting without a specific client focus, does not count as agile coaching experience.
What does working with a ZXM Consultant Scrum Team look like?
The team never shy away from hard work. Change is hard. Change at scale is even harder. Seniors help juniors by working in a Scrum Team of consultants.
Our goal is to improve people's way of working, not improve our egos and embed ourselves permanently into a client site.
Agile is always changing, so whether its formal learning or researching new techniques, the team is always growing its knowledge.
The ZXM team works across dozens of client teams. There's no "my team". They triage issues and tackle them through working to a backlog.
To support you at work (and play) we offer some great perks: up to 5 weeks off to relax and recharge, an annual allowance to support your learning and growth, a mobile data allowance, a laptop to support mobility across multiple client sites and discounts on Scrum.org certification.
We believe that people’s unique contributions drive ZXM’s success. This is why we never discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, or marital, veteran, or physical or mental disability status. We’re stronger together.
