Job Description

Agile Team Facilitator/Scrum Master

At Xero we create beautiful online accounting software that is accessible anytime, anywhere around the globe. We are a game-changing, world-class business that dreams big. There’s plenty of opportunity ahead of us and we need great people to take us there.

As an Agile Team Facilitator at Xero you’ll work with one or two teams (we call them Pods) to help them understand what it means to be Agile and to help them implement efficient and effective software development practices.

If you’re familiar with Scrum, the term Scrum Master may come to mind. Well, we do things a bit differently. We don’t ask our Pods to use Scrum or any specific Agile framework and our Agile Team Facilitators are framework-neutral. Our Pods are expected to own their way of working and use whatever framework allows them to deliver great software.

You’ll make an impact by helping Pods deliver valuable high-quality software quickly and consistently to our customers. To do this you’ll work closely with the Product Owners and Pods day-to-day, including helping them define and prioritise the Product Backlog and work at a sustainable and predictable pace. This means you’re the first point of contact for removing any barriers that get in the Pod’s way as you facilitate an environment where our Pods thrive and grow.

We are looking for people who demonstrate:

An Agile mindset
Successful experience in a similar role (e.g. Scrum Master, Product Owner or Scrum team member)
Genuine understanding of the values and principles that underpin the Lean-Agile approach to work
A good grasp of, and ability in, team facilitation
A growing capability in coaching, mentoring and/or training skills
The desire to help teams evolve their practices through continuous improvement
A personal commitment to growing and deepening your craft
Formal agile qualifications are of interest but not essential
Joining Xero means working with an internationally acclaimed, award-winning product right here in Wellington. As part of our awesome package you’ll get a competitive salary, Xero shares, great colleagues and an environment that challenges you to follow your passions, develop your skills and be the best you can be. We offer a swathe of other cool perks as well like free fruit, pool tables and paddles boards on the harbour.

If you’ve read all this and feel you’ve got lots to offer, get in touch!
