Zen Ex Machina (ZXM) is looking for an Agile Consultant in Melbourne Australia to join one of our Consultant Scrum Teams. As a consultant, you’ll have three jobs:
This isn’t a job for growing Scrum Masters. ZXM’s consultants are master practitioners of agile, scale, and digital transformation. You’ll need over 10 years of experience in agile, not including roles where you’re a “manager”.
You need more than just a few certifications to be an agile coach. We're not looking for career project managers, we're looking for career agilists.
You need to be passionate about driving agile cultural and behavioural change, practice adoption, to ultimately improve the work lives of our customers.
Our entire organisation operates using Scrum. We work across sites in consultant Scrum Teams, so you must be a team player and not operate like a lone contractor.
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, blog posts, and even proposals for sales.
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 Melbourne.
What does working in our 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.
