Agile Coach/Lean Delivery Agent

Purpose of position

At Awin we’re building Europe’s leading affiliate marketing platform, and we consider Lean and Agile methods to be the pillars of our product development cycle. We aren't dogmatic about one specific process or method. Instead, we combine the best-fitting practices for the situation at hand. That's why we named this position Lean Delivery Agent. Our Lean Delivery Agents play a key role across departments within the entire organisation, supporting and acting to deliver our company goals.

Key Tasks

  • Empower self-organization and Lean thinking within the entire delivery lifecycle.
  • Enable our teams to continuously improve and refine their Agile and Lean practices.
  •  Remove impediments within and outside of the teams.

  • Act as an ambassador for teams, and facilitate trade-offs between business and technical needs.
  • Lead initiatives to continuously improve our processes, practices and communication.
  • Think outside the box and work proactively within the boundaries of our organisation.
  • Promote the “stop starting, start finishing” principle.
  • Work as part of a team of 6 Lean Delivery Agents across both locations (London and Berlin) and benefit from continuous exchange, knowledge transfer and learning.
  • Lead by example and behave as a role model.
