The Hired Guns are on the hunt for an Agile Trainer to step in and help one of cable’s biggest networks. They need an experienced Agile pro to help their team develop faster and more effectively. The ideal candidate here has proven experience leading Agile team throughout entire project lifecyles and can apply Agile methodologies to multiple development disciplines, including analysis, design, development, and testing.
You’re the venerable old ball coach. You’ve done your time in the development trenches and now you help other organizations get better faster. You lead teams through design and modeling, code refactoring, test-driven development, and build-integration-test automation. But you do more than give orders: you’re an excellent teacher who makes sure that the teams that you’re coaching understand the principles you’re imparting and can carry them forward on their own.
You’re also no stranger to teaching teams to write user stories, how to manage release and iteration planning, and how to properly hold Scrum stand-up meetings. You’ve got a way with stakeholders and can get buy-in from all corners.
If you’re an experienced Agile coach, you know exactly what they’re going to be asking of you. This is a highly consultative role, so rather than joining the team, you’re going to be a valuable external resource. You’re going to be doing things like holding user story workshops, holding and leading project meetings, and doing your best to impart the lessons of Agile/Scrum methodology on a range of professionals. You’ll also be evaluating existing team metrics and helping establish new ones. They’re going to be looking to you move things ahead, so the level of expectation here is high. You’ll need to be comfortable being The Fixer, because there’s a lot here that needs fixing.
This is a digital team within a large cable network. If you’ve helped a similar television or large media concern become Agile in the past, that’s going to be worth a big ol’ boatload of bonus points.
This is a great way to leave your mark on a true industry giant. You’ll be known for being the one who helped them develop using Agile methodology and generally saving their bacon before riding off into the sunset.
