At ustwo we design and build digital products, services, and immersive experiences that people love.
We believe that by caring deeply for our people, clients, and partners, we can unleash our “collective genius”. That means mastering the art of collaboration, crafting the optimal conditions for a team to perform at its absolute best, in an environment of diverse backgrounds, thoughts, views, and life experiences.
We are an equal opportunity employer and very much value diversity and inclusion. We believe diverse teams help us make better products and we actively hire for cultural growth. We seek to hire people of all ages, stories and backgrounds.
We are looking for a passionate, experienced and delivery-focused freelance Agile PM/Coach familiar with early stage product discovery to join us for 3-6 months from 28th May 2019.
As part of our Coach Team your role will be varied. You'll be responsible for supporting two teams (different clients) in effective product discovery. You'll create great team dynamics, and help individuals grow both personally and professionally. You will also use your project management skills to handle team logistics, monitor and report project budgets, manage risks, and manage senior stakeholder's expectations, and generally keep things moving along smoothly. Lastly, ideally you’ll have agency-side experience.
So, if you’re comfortable supporting teams of 3-8 people through product discovery and research, are familiar with Agile and Lean approaches (experience with the GDS Alpha/Beta/Launch model is helpful), delight in building cohesive well-functioning teams and want to be part of a collaborative and dynamic culture that puts people in the centre, then this is probably the gig for you.
Product Discovery & Research - You’re experienced in the early stages of product discovery and understand how that process moves into build/measure/learn cycles.
Team Dynamics - You understand the characteristics of high performing teams and have a wide variety of tools available to you to help drive/guide a team towards greater dynamics, collaboration and effectiveness.
Stakeholder Relationships - You’re able to cultivate and grow meaningful relationships with clients and external stakeholders, encourage engagement and alignment of expectations, and empathise with the challenges they are facing. You can empathise with the culture of large corporates.
Continuous Improvement - You’re continuously looking for ways to improve delivery processes and eager to learn more about better ways of building teams and products.
Encouraging Growth - You recognise that it’s often the unsaid that holds us back, so you champion a culture of encouraging constructive feedback – both by providing individual feedback and coaching to team members and requesting it for your own development.
Commercial Acumen - You have a strong understanding of the commercial aspect of building a product and feel comfortable managing budgets and optimising return on investment, as well as working with the commercial team to develop contracts, budgets and Scope of Work documents.
Positive and Upbeat - You bring a positive and enthusiastic spirit to everything you do. And you are good at infecting your teams with good vibes.
Role-Modeling - You role-model the principles and values that you stand for and look to foster the same within your teams.
