Your products consist of global e-commerce websites, online B2B portals, specialist web-tools and public facing APIs.

What You Will Be Doing

  • Lead, guide, and train across your team of 5+ SCRUM Masters, each a servant leader to a small to medium sized agile delivery team

  • You have a good technical understanding of (web)applications and development processes in generalA good sense for business needs and eagerness to learn and understand our evolving landscapes.

  • This role requires you to help drive our strategy, priority, and planning across a variety of teams, cultures, and time zones

  • While you are not doing this alone, it does mean risk mitigation, unplanned challenges and tough decisions are a part of your daily job.Your sense for stakeholder management is therefore excellent and you have great communication skills.

  • You feel equally comfortable engaging with a group of developers as doing presentations to senior management.

  • You have excellent Atlassian skills (Jira, but also Confluence and Bitbucket) when it comes to planning, roadmaps, resource management and release planning

  • Familiarity with Aha! or other Product-like roadmap tooling is a plus
