Intro

Nmbrs BV is a knowledge-intensive IT-service provider in online HR- and payroll applications. It's an organization that outlines its strategy based on the newest online Microsoft technics. Our product is developed with the idea that it should contribute to the optimization of HR- and payroll processes for our clients. Over 700 companies have already chosen Nmbrs® to manage their employees and payroll and more than 600 accounting firms work enthusiastically with us on a daily basis.

This is a job for an agile fanatic who needs a challenge.

Nmbrs® is hiring an experienced Agile Coach to help our product squads embrace and maintain an agile working style.

Your challenge:

We introduced agile practices two years ago @Nmbrs. Together with an Agile Coach you'll be helping the product squads continuously improve and empower them to drive their own growth. At Nmbrs we are not dogmatic about agile. Instead, we constantly evaluate our practices and processes.

  • You're the best facilitator and you enjoy facilitating all sort of squads’ meetings and sessions (brainstormings, planning, backlog groomings retrospectives, goal setting sessions, plannings etc.). Since you believe the best solutions come from collaboration, you facilitate the decision making when a squad comes together instead of pushing your own solutions.
  • You understand the value Agile brings to the business, so you guide and coach the squads on applying agile principles and practices.
  • You ensure the learning and growth of the squads by coaching them through tough situations.
  • Delivering value is not just counting story points. You work closely with the squads to master the art of transforming goals into daily work. To ensure visibility on progress and blockers you help the squads create, maintain and use dashboards and burndown charts.
  • You have experienced what stable velocity is and know how to make it happen. Consistency over chaos.
  • You take part in the onboarding of new colleagues on agile processes and practices.
  • You coach squad members on the operational responsibilities of their role. For example, help your Product Owners apply the agile values to their work.
  • You'll collaborate with a team of Agile and HR coaches to grow the self-organising culture. Together, you'll share ideas, approaches and learning methods, constantly evaluating and improving practices. You find out how to balance agile processes so they provide the structure and flexibility we need. With your team, you'll help others to deliver higher value as fast as possible.

Main requirements

  • Experience as Agile Coach or Scrum Master for at least 3 years for multiple teams (in development/product teams)
  • Experience in managing international product development teams in european culture
  • Understanding of the Agile processes and methodologies (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, delivery practices) and the skill to easily explain them with practical examples
  • Proven knowledge of coaching and facilitation technique
  • English Proficiency

Soft Skills / Personality Checks

  • You have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, you help individuals/teams and squads come up with their own solutions and grow
  • You have excellent interpersonal skills, you like to listen and are a wizz at asking open questions
  • Team player that actively likes to help the colleagues
  • You’re a proactive person that takes initiative, so you’re always on the look for improvements and come up with new and innovative ways of working.
  • Up-to-date with newest Agile practices, technologies and environments
  • Keen to develop yourself and grow along with the company
  • Assertive and perseverant
  • Fun in your own way

Nice to have

  • A Scrum Master and/ or Agile Coaching certification

Perks

  • We are a young, bold and global company. We are rocketing payroll processing to the new era. Having these ambitions we (you and us) constantly challenge ourselves.
  • We give you the best fit. Always! With a buddy and a mentor assigned you will soon find your way within Nmbrs. Coaches to support squads and teams are the icing on the cake. All there to always develop. You and us.
  • While work is fun, leisure time outside of work is key to stay happy! Our employees organise many initiatives such sports, pub-quizzing and so on. Not mandatory of course. Hop in when you feel like it!
  • Nice weather? Become a Nmbrs pirate and float through the Amsterdam canals with colleagues or friends on our Nmbrs boat. What better way to explore the city?(again)
  • Education on the newest quality tools, testing methods and best practices
  • Working occasionally in the other office in Lisbon, while staying in our own apartment, also free to use for private trips
