Are you a Scrum Master or Agile facilitator who is looking for a new challenge? We are creating a new team to build a Cloud Management Portal which integrates data from AWS and Azure alongside data from ServiceNow and other internal systems into one consistent, easy to use interface. This is a new team working with a new client, so you will have an opportunity to build a team without any of the 'baggage' that often comes with existing teams.

You will have a lot of latitude in how the team works, we're fans of TDD, BDD and Continuous Delivery so you will be encouraged to support these, but we will not dictate how the team works. The client has a number of different internal sponsors all of who are excited by the prospect of the Cloud Management Portal, you will need to help support the Product Owner and delivery team to focus on delivering the minimum possible functionality to support the business need. We will be able to expand on the features after launch, but there will be a focus on getting a product to market with just enough capability. This really is an opportunity to test your Lean Startup ideas and validate your approaches to helping teams navigate their journey through the Tuckman phases.

Why work for Headforwards?

We are a software development company with just over 100 people from 18 different countries and we like to have fun at work. We are agile with a very laid back feel, a relatively flat structure and small self-organising teams of 2-7 people. There's no pressure to work extra hours to churn out more and more code. At Headforwards, our culture and environment is dedicated to making people happy at work. We have lots of social activities and monthly learning sessions, talks and cross company communities of practice for various languages, tools and frameworks. This is a place where you can make a difference, work in a small team start-up feel but benefit from the support of a larger community of developers and like-minded people. We work in teams dedicated to various clients and we work on global projects with cutting edge technologies, tools and techniques. Most of us live in beautiful Cornwall and our offices are less than 5 miles from the beach. While we love Cornwall and can't imagine not living here, we know a lot of people are happy elsewhere. We expect everyone to come to our office occasionally, maybe once or twice a quarter, and there are some client visits necessary but apart from that we are happy for our team to be based anywhere in the UK. If you are lucky enough to be based in Cornwall, our new offices are set-up for you to work here if you would prefer though.
