Senior Agile Delivery Lead (Gaming Tribe)
We are looking for a Senior Agile Delivery Lead with a good technical background who has worked with large third parties to join our Gaming Tribe.
What you’ll do:
As an Agile Delivery Lead in the Gaming tribe at Sky Betting and Gaming you will be focussed on the successful delivery of quality products using the most effective Lean and Agile techniques. Cross team and department communication is critical to delivery success and you will be at the forefront of making this happen.
In particular, you will be comfortable in a role with a high degree of tech focused stakeholders working with a high visibility set of teams, central to the tribe’s service and operational management while delivering a complex roadmap of features and “business as usual” tasks.
In your senior role, your exceptional leadership skills will ensure that you are seen as a role model and able to influence teams with your knowledge and experience of delivery and Agile ways of working beyond your immediate remit and teams.
You will foster a continuous improvement culture and, through the use of data, the ability to “fail fast and cheaply” and learn from the experience. You will also be responsible for empowering your team and facilitating the delivery of high-quality products regularly, repeatedly and predictably through a focus on risk management, technical excellence, business value and the needs of the customer.
In addition, you will:
Lead on the delivery of initiatives in an online commercial environment.
Take a data driven and experimental approach to solving problems and investigating opportunities.
Use the tools and data available to you to drive delivery, improve efficiency, understand and size initiatives and then track them via burnups charts, throughput and cycle times.
Regularly report and analyse metrics and insight.
Work with and manage multiple 3rd parties to ensure coordination and delivery.
Own and deliver other initiatives that are ongoing within the tribe with a focus on cross-team/cross-tribe/cross-business interactions, ensuring you can bring together stakeholders at any level.
Influence and learn from your peers in a cooperative and supportive environment, to drive our ways of working and effect change.
How you’ll do it:
Take responsibility for end to end delivery of initiatives, managing external dependencies, issues and risks.
Manage cross-team communication and coordination to ensure that dependencies are understood and well managed in order to deliver the end product successfully.
Prevent, identify and proactively remove blockers to enable progress of the development team.
Plan delivery timelines based on feedback and estimation from development teams and identify any potential disruptions before they become a problem.
Run the delivery process within the squad and ensure the right ceremonies are in place. (Sprint planning, backlog refinement, stand-ups, retros etc).
Evolve agile and lean techniques – developing the squad’s scrum/kanban and lean ways of working to optimise delivery.
Facilitate the inception and delivery of new initiatives outside of your usual team domain.
Report to multiple stakeholders. It’s important to ensure they are all aligned and expectations are well managed.
Have lean process awareness and a continuous improvement mentality.
You will be able to manage multiple squads and streams of work.
Our People Ambition is to attract & develop diverse & talented people to meet the current and future growth needs of SB&G. Together, our aim is to create the Best Digital Business to work at.
