Intro

90% of everything we eat, wear, and use is shipped. But online sales and automation for freight industry are non-existent.

We believe that the process of moving goods around the world should be smooth. So we’ve created the online freight marketplace and SaaS software to usher the logistics industry into the digital era, making global shipping faster, more cost-effective and smoother.

We’re looking for an Agile Coach/Scrum Master to join our growing Barcelona R&D team. The perfect candidate will be one who can effectively drive our teams towards continuous improvement to unleash their full potential and contribute to make Freightos a reference in the tech world with regards to agility, good engineering principles and best practices.

You will be helping the teams that are building our flagship product, not only in Barcelona, but also in our other R&D sites. Our teams are self-managed, multi-functional with end-to-end responsibility: they design, implement, test, deploy and maintain the software they build, and take ownership of how they work.

You will become a crucial piece in the teams, balancing mentoring and coaching as required and leveraging your experience in building products that delight our customers. From removing blockers for the teams to helping them fail fast with minimum risk, you have the skills needed to bring a trillion dollar industry online.

As an Agile Coach/Scrum Master you will:

  • Act as the agility advocate in multiple teams, mentoring and coaching them on agile principles and practices
  • Drive continuous improvement in the teams. Establish the right mechanisms to keep the teams and their members in good health and bringing visibility on how the teams are doing
  • Become a servant/leader for the teams. Assist the teams to remove any blockers in their way, but also coach them to become self-sufficient
  • Assist the teams in their ceremonies. Facilitate meetings as required, send minutes, document working agreements and learning from retrospectives
  • Help the teams to keep the backlog, the board and any other physical and virtual team tools in good shape
  • Spread agility beyond the boundaries of the teams. Share success stories and learnings with other teams and promote agility in R&D and in the rest of the company
  • Help improve intra and inter-team communication, favoring a culture of feedback
  • Mentor other members of R&D into the art of agility, and help them to potentially become Scrum Masters/Agile coaches too!
  • As any other member of R&D, be ready to participate in activities out of your comfort zone when the needs require it

Main requirements

  • Proven experience as a Scrum Master or Agile Coach in multiple software development teams
  • Significant experience in good engineering principles and best practices
  • Excellent communication, self-organization, time management and interpersonal skills
  • Must be fluent in English with excellent reading, speaking and writing skills
  • Come ready for a challenge and don’t be fooled by container ships; this is rocket-science technology

Nice to have

  • Experience in coaching distributed and multi-cultural teams
  • Experience in product-based companies
  • Developer or Product Owner background
  • Active in the local Agile Community

Perks

  • Freight is huge. But it doesn't need to be boring. We make sure to create a working environment that makes changing something really big really fun
  • Build something that changes the world
  • Competitive benefits with Employee Stock Ownership Plan packages
  • Friendly, get-ship-done environment
  • Work side-by-side with outstanding talents
  • Ongoing professional training events
  • Team building events (that don’t suck)
