Small business makes the world go 'round - it's the heart of the global economy. At Xero we want millions of small businesses to thrive through beautiful software, advice and connections. We aim to make being a small business more efficient and profitable, and more enjoyable too.
We're looking for an Agile Team Facilitator to join Xero's global Product team
We're here to improve and accelerate the delivery of beautiful products our customers love. Our vision is to see our teams focused on outcomes, driven by value and working together to quickly and sustainably deliver beautiful products - and we need help getting there.
Our Agile Team Facilitators work with one to two product delivery teams (we call them Pods) to help them to understand what it means to be Agile and to implement efficient and effective product delivery practices. They make a noticeable impact each day by helping their Pods deliver valuable high-quality products quickly and consistently to our customers.
As one of our Agile Team Facilitators, you will:
* Support your Pods with the framework they choose to use (e.g. Scrum, Kanban) and the practices that support how they work (e.g. planning poker, user stories, retrospectives) * Facilitate Pod events, workshops and meetings such as scrum ceremonies, team kick-offs and product inceptions * Create an environment in which Pods can thrive and continuously improve * Support your Pods to work at a sustainable and predictable pace, including being the first point of contact for removing any impediments * Work closely with the Product Owners and Pods day-to-day, helping them prioritize and define the Product Backlog and deliver value at the end of every iteration * Guide the Pods in creating and maintaining core artefacts as needed such as the Backlog, Definition of Ready, Definition of Done and Team Agreements * Contribute positively to our thriving Centre of Excellence so that it is a shining example of a great team with a reputation for being a game-changer when it comes to helping Xero deliver beautiful products.
We believe in the power of teams and value great teamwork and team players above solo change agents. You'll be surrounded by skilled and supportive product delivery practitioners who are just as ready to learn from you as they are to help you grow. You'll work collaboratively with your practitioner teammates and the Pods you work with will be raving fans.
