You will also...

  • Function as an Agile Coach, as needed, across the off-shore group of teams you will be working with, leveraging agile techniques as your primary point of reference.
  • Partner with leaders to foster a culture of healthy and efficient teams that execute at a predictable and sustainable pace against clearly defined goals and outcomes.
  • Continually strive for role clarity for every contributing role in technology.
  • Ensure that the way your teams work - methodologies, processes, meetings, and ceremonies - is appropriate, clear, systematic, documented and adhered to within reason.
  • Model and coach the facilitation of those meetings and ceremonies, as well as the collaborative, dynamic planning process of prioritizing and estimating the work to be done against the capacity and capability of the team.
  • As needed, facilitate consistent communication and collaboration between Product Management and all appropriate stakeholders in the efforts around release, roadmap and portfolio planning.
  • Have a willingness to visit our off-shore group of teams four or more times a year to maintain and grow the relationships and chemistry that makes such a partnership a success.
  • Ensure all products are built to an appropriate level of quality for the stage (spike, prototype, beta, production, etc).
  • Model and coaches the proactive mitigation and management of risks.
  • Identify and track all relevant data that informs leadership and product teams on the quality and predictability of our product teams.
  • Manage the use of any tooling that supports the agile product lifecycle for our product teams. This includes the evaluation, implementation, and training of new tools, as well as the configuration and administration of current tooling. Jira and Confluence administration experience is a plus. 
  • Oversee the management of, if not directly run and own, the project management of any special projects that aren’t directly driving our roadmap. This can be technical debt projects, hosting migrations, key customer projects, audits, etc.

Qualifications


  • 2-4 years of experience delivering products and projects as an agile coach in a software development shop
  • A strong understanding of and passion for the core principles of agile software development
  • Proven understanding and passion for core agile principles, as well as experience with a range of agile methodologies and the tools that support them

An Insider's view of Club Automation

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is high energy & collaborative. We promote interaction within & across teams to build camaraderie. They say life happens in the kitchen & that’s true here too! Whether it’s grabbing coffee, sharing our family-style Friday lunches, or grabbing a beer at the end of the day, we check our egos at the door & have fun while working together.

John

Team Lead of Customer Service

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

To meet the demands of our fast-growing customers, my team builds applications focused on scalability and configurability. We are challenged to think innovatively about how our applications can service one customer or ten-thousand customers with an equally engaging and responsive user experience.

Tyler

UI Architect

What does career growth look like on your team?

The demand for our product is growing which has led to a lot of growth opportunity. Leaders check in with their team members regularly to learn more about their long-term interests. There’s ample opportunity to shadow teammates in other roles and we’re encouraged to grow our skillset or explore a new one through resources like LinkedIn Learning.

Hillari

Training Team Lead

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

At its core, Club Automation is an employee-driven organization. Innovation starts within and across our teams, and ideas flow outward from there; we make efforts not to be constrained by top-down thinking. We believe that there is no problem for which a knowledgeable, talented, and driven group of people cannot create a solution.

Bill

Director of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as an intern here, and right after graduating, I earned a full time BDR role. I was then promoted to an Account Executive 6 months later. It’s inspiring to work in a company that trusts you and recognizes potential for growth, encourages that growth, and gives you the necessary tools to become a leader and handle greater responsibilities.
