About Us

At Network Guard , for more than 11 years, we’ve paved the way towards a more private and secure digital world. We’re a global SaaS company and an industry leader in cybersecurity. Millions of consumers worldwide use our internet privacy and security products every day.

Who we're looking for

You’ll be the company’s first dedicated agile coach (or agile delivery manager; we’re flexible on titles). We’re opening two positions: an individual contributor acting as a Senior Agile Coach, as well as a People Manager who will hire and build a team of agile coaches.

Your success will be evaluated by:

  • Improvements in velocity and throughput
  • Predictability of delivery
  • The satisfaction of internal customers (based on the availability and accuracy of project management metrics, quality of insights, and training effectiveness.)
What you will be doing
  • Rotate through, and embed yourself in, the delivery teams across the company. Understand the teams’ issues, track velocity, and related metrics, find ways to raise velocity, lead by example, and guide the teams to implement your ideas. You’ll need to diagnose and fix root causes in process, technology, tooling, skill gaps, attitudes, and organizational design. Exactly which teams you’ll cover, and how long you’ll stay in them, you’ll have a lot of freedom to decide. Find the right balance to deliver the most value of the business: Sometimes, you’ll quickly make a team self-sufficient. Other times the nature of the project might require your full-time attention for the duration of the project.
  • Identify, track, and mitigate project risks. Escalate where you see issues that aren’t solved in a reasonable time frame.
  • Design and guide the adoption of process improvements.
  • Training: identify skill development needs and help all team members address them. Create learning paths and deliver training. Coach, mentor, and lead by example.
  • Facilitate retrospectives and annual, quarterly, and weekly planning forums. Guide managers by setting reasonable objectives and creating reliable plans for achieving them.
Who you are
  • You have a proven track record of helping raise the velocity of software teams. You track metrics such as WIP-counts, velocity, and cycle-time, and use them to find insights that let teams deliver value faster.
  • You have a deep understanding of software development processes using agile methodologies like Scrum and Kanban. Likely from being in roles such as agile coach, scrum master, product owner, developer, or designer.
  • You have a deep enough understanding of technology such that you’ll be able to judge the clarity of a story and its acceptance and success criteria and sometimes make suggestions for breaking it into more manageable pieces.
  • You have a keen ability to influence without authority.
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills.
What we offer
  • Challenging work in a fun and collaborative environment
  • Attractive compensation and time-off benefits
  • Spacious open-concept and centrally located offices
  • Financially successful and profitable company
  • Full-time employment with flexible working hours
  • Fully stocked pantry with healthy foods and fresh fruit
  • Team lunches and company events every quarter
  • Multicultural teams represented by 30+ nationalities
