Are you a passionate advocate of modern ways of working and Agile culture? We want to talk to you! 



Digital disruption is opening up more opportunities for businesses to connect with their customers and accelerate the realisation of business value. That's what we'd love you to help us do. With your strong business experience, vision, and ability to steer clients toward new ways of thinking and re-imagine operating models, we can open up fantastic career opportunities for you. 


Avanade – The World’s Premier Microsoft Consultancy 


Avanade is the world’s leading Microsoft consultancy and is the ultimate destination for consultants who specialise in Microsoft technology. Our vision is to be the leading digital innovator through the power of people and the Microsoft ecosystem. We are 40,000 consultants strong and growing. 


Diversity and inclusion is baked into our DNA, as is flexibility. We empower our people to deliver awesome solutions for our clients, and our unsurpassed experience in the Microsoft space enables us to place our people on the most challenging, rewarding engagements. Career progression opportunities at Avanade are world-leading, as are our benefits. 


Be part of Avanade’s future in South Australia 

We have recently established the #adelaide.build.hub, a modern engineering center in Adelaide to deliver engineering excellence to the region. We are building a squad-based delivery model from the ground up to deliver rapid and frequent value to our clients. Our squads are Agile-drivenDevOps-enabled multi-disciplinary teams, each with a focus on a particular Microsoft technology stack. 


Adelaide is a greenfield location for Avanade providing an opportunity to join us early and have a real impact on our future in South Australia. 


The Role 

We are seeking an experienced Agile Coach to join us at the grassroots level of the Adelaide Build Hub and establish the Agile delivery capability. 


You will: 

  • Establish playbooks on Agile delivery and modern ways of working for Avanade’s Adelaide Build Hub \
  • Coach and mentor, our engineering teams on the culture of Agile and help them understand the true motivations of Agile delivery 
  • Cultivate an air of excitement within the business around modern ways of working
  • Promote Agile delivery to our sales and account teams to bring them on a journey of understanding and appreciation
  • Coach and guide our clients on what to expect from Agile delivery and articulate the value it brings them  


As an Agile Coach with Avanade’s Adelaide Build Hub, you will be responsible for leading the charge as we establish the practices, habits, and frameworks required to succeed and scale in Agile delivery, and then ongoing oversight to ensure successful growth and scaling of the Agile capability. 

 

 

About You 

You are passionate about Agile & DevOps as a culture, a mindset, and a way of working and are an experienced and client-focused consultant with well-developed analytical and critical thinking skills.


You bring 7+ years’ experience in and around modern engineering practices & Agile ways of working, and you might even have a background in software development. You have probably been – and may still be – a Scrum Master and have led Agile project teams. 


Flying the Agile flag is what motivates you every day, with an element of evangelism to bring the uninitiated along on the journey. You are excited to guide organisations to transform themselves to enable Agile delivery methods, helping them adopt the mindset to achieve success. You’re comfortable failing. Fast. 


You are equally comfortable working with internal teams as you are providing advice to senior clients and business decision-makers. 



Other Favourable Attributes

  • Australian citizenship, with Baseline security clearance (or willingness to apply) 
  • Industry certification to back up your solid foundation in Agile & Scrum 
  • Working knowledge of Azure DevOps and related toolsets
