About the Job
We are looking for an experienced Senior Agile Coach who can also coach our commercial crews and bring us to the next level of agility in the organization. You will be working with teams to help them achieve more and continuously deliver value, using lean and agile practices. You play a vital role in implementing our organization-wide agile principles and transforming our organization to be a truly agile organization with a strong emphasis on delivery and speed.

    • Promote and support agile and lean practices within your team(s) and help the team to continuously deliver value and continuously improve

    • You bring the right drive and mindset for a learning culture and you have the ability to absorb and apply new knowledge and skills
    • There is no one size fits all when it comes to people and you understand the impact on others and how to tweak your approach for the situation and context
    • We won’t tell you what the next step, so you need to be self–motivated, driven to succeed, focused on results and passionate about the job
    • We want to change the media industry in Germany and Europe which means we need to be able to adapt
    • You enjoy reacting to changing business needs, cultures, conditions and work responsibilities
