As Senior Agile Delivery, you’ll be part of a team bringing principles-based thinking to create environments of empowerment and accountability – where product-led delivery teams are charged with solving problems for customers - not given work to do.

As scrum master for 2-3 teams, you know what good looks like and how to create flow, helping teams move closer to the problem space and customer. You create strong cross-functional partnerships and co-create  standards that give teams the anchor they need in their quest for high performance.  You are an executor – an active team member and a trusted partner who wears a delivery hat. You remove ambiguity and enable the right conversations at the right time. 

You thrive in a workplace of open feedback and trust.  Your dream job lets you have fun while learning, improving and taking risks along the way.

If this sounds like you, join the 84.51° Product & Design team in helping to lead the next wave of products that will change the way retail is done.
