We are looking for someone who has extensive experience in working with Agile, to join our Programme Management team to help bolster and support our delivery teams, by working with clients to map out a longer term programme of innovative work.
We are key development partners who thrive in long term relationships with our clients, getting to understand their businesses and helping them identify digital opportunities in a disruptive and challenging time for many industries.
We firmly believe in Agile Mindsets to enable Digital Transformation, and that ‘Agile’ is not restricted to technology methodologies, but for everyone.
This role oversees the day-to-day management of the SilverStripe programme of work and will include coaching, mentoring, developing, and aligning the teams to expect high standards of outcomes for our clients and their customers.
Working closely with the Programme Director, this role will require the ability to collaborate and make pragmatic decisions. You will enjoy leading and mentoring others, and making it your mission to create success for both the business and its customers.
This position will have a lot of variety, challenges and opportunity for growth. We see this as an ideal step up for an experienced Senior Agile Project Manager to enable more strategic delivery.
Some of the key things you will be doing:
- Overseeing the professional development of our Agile Project Managers through our Community of Practice, as well as line management
- Assisting our Agile Project Managers in the management of project timelines, communications and cross team deliverables to ensure projects are managed effectively
- Working with our Sales and Programme Teams to establish ongoing programmes of work with key clients
- Ensuring that our clients are deriving value from the ongoing work we do
- Facilitating workshops and training external parties in Agile practices and web strategies
- Helping to run the Project Management Community of Practice
If you are ready for an exciting challenge and the opportunity to influence the direction of both our own and client organisations to make a real difference, we want to talk to you!
We're family friendly
SilverStripe is a grown-up company. We want to create an environment that has all the excitement and intellectual stimulation of a startup but with a sensible business model. We don't have ninjas and rock stars working 80-hour weeks. We do enjoy working with smart people in an efficient and disciplined manner. Many SilverStripers have young families and we strive to support that.
We take professional development seriously
There are plenty of opportunities for learning — we pay for SilverStripers to attend conferences and training; we have an awesome mentoring programme; we hold our own monthly hackdays; and we encourage knowledge sharing through regular internal events likes “Show & Tells”, "Lunch & Learns" and “Guild Meetings”. We've got something on every week. Mostly, you will be working alongside super smart designers, developers and scrum masters. They’ll share their love of the craft with you and help you grow your skills.
We have an awesome culture
SilverStripe is big on things like building trusting relationships, using technology to solve important problems, and helping others reach their goals. We actively foster a culture that supports our core values of honesty over comfort; adaptability over guarantees; collaboration over control; continuous improvement over perfection; and camaraderie over corporate culture. Our culture sets us apart — it’s a key reason that brings people to SilverStripe and keeps them here.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
