agile project manager.
We are searching for new experts to our team of Agile Leads. The role of agile project manager combines proactive client handling with developer focused scrum mastery, testing and releasing excellence with more traditional project management skills.
A typical day for an agile project manager at Jayway involves close collaboration with our customers to perform agile development planning, leadership, testing and releasing. This is done either in the Jayway studio or at our customers premises. From inception of feature concepts with designers and developers to demos and releases, you will ensure UX and design deliverables that match planned test cases and that code is committed, instrumented and tested to meet quality and coverage.
This job is for a person with the rare but crucial skill-set and personality required to manage agile software development teams while simultaneously working with designers and other stakeholders. The agile project manager also makes sure that the team delivers test driven development quality by using solid tools and processes. You will join Jayway’s company wide collective of passionate and talented design driven software professionals.
Skills and requirements.
We are looking for a candidate that can foster an open, transparent development environment while keeping stakeholders in the loop. We are not seeking a textbook scrum or kanban person. Rather, someone with hard experience from agile software development is a better fit for Jayway. You know what works in projects where multiple stakeholders interests intersect and thrive in this environment to deliver great software. You enjoy iterative research and testing, where you itch to make end-users, developers and customers all smile.
Your job will be to coordinate and protect your team while acting as the customer’s representative, being understanding towards their needs and quality requirements. While being self-driven and able to manage smaller commercial decisions directly with the customer. You will also;
Set the standard for project planning of agile design, development, testing and releasing.
Establish the highest level of trust in the customer-Jayway relationship for quality in timely tested deliverables.
Ensure overall and daily progress of a project and handle the communication with all stakeholders.
Efficiently communicate in progress-optimised ways, guiding developers to focus on code quality and test of deliverables.
Contribute actively in competence development of our growing team of Agile & Test leads.
Have a technical background.
Have 3+ years of documented experience of running agile IT projects from start to delivery.
Being a developer or QA engineer is a force but not a requirement, and so is a Scrum master certification.
Note: You must be fluent in Swedish.
Our daily jobs.
We do both consulting and project work, focusing on in-house projects. We aim for fun and challenging projects of the right size - typically 3-8 people, working in an agile way, using cool technology. We work with clients ranging from small specialist companies to some of the biggest ones in the world. We've introduced agile methodologies at many of our clients, and of course practice what we preach.
We offer the opportunity to work with some of the most interesting minds and most groundbreaking companies in the world. We invest 10-12 days sprinkled throughout the year in professional development - attending international conferences and our own Øredev as well as internal knowledge sharing days together with your Jayway colleagues.
And, perhaps most importantly, we’re an organization that strives to make a difference in our community and in our city. Here is one example of our commitments: https://www.talentwithoutborders.io
