We are looking for Agile coaches to boost our customers’ various projects.
You are an active change agent. You arouse curiosity and help organizations create, communicate and implement changes using agile methods. You have the necessary skills and experience to understand how both systems and organizations work and how they can be improved. You are able to transform vague wishes into concrete needs and create change activities.
What we offer you
As an employer and community, we promise to look after you because healthy employees are our greatest asset and the core of our business. Our praised corporate culture is based on a flat organization model that enables self-direction and supports individuality. Our reputation for providing high-quality services to our customers is entirely thanks to our top experts, and we take our modern operating culture with us to customer projects, as well. Our diverse team of experts is united by a pioneering spirit and a desire to work in a company whose existence has a greater purpose than just making a profit – striving for a more humane, sustainable, and ethical digital world.
The development of professional expertise is important to us, and you can pick what you find the most interesting from weekly tech presentations, guild activities, or course training. The Gofore community also extends beyond work. Various activities, such as board games, cycling, climbing, and video games are some of the things we do during get-togethers combined with sauna, various events, and family days. To find the right balance between work and free time, you can define your flexible working hours, work remotely, and choose the tools that you need. These and many other benefits await you at Gofore!
What we expect from you
You have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and work smoothly at all levels of the organization: from the management team to the strategic and operational level. You have an understanding and experience of various agile development frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, Safe, etc.) and you know how to guide people to think agile as well. You have worked with agile development, e.g. as a Scrum master, product owner or already acquired incentives as an Agile coach.
Coaching different stakeholders comes naturally to you, and you know how to help both customers and colleagues improve their own and the team’s operations. You enjoy the changing operating environment and understand the importance of continuous development of professional skills. At the moment, we mainly work remotely, but in the future it may be necessary to work at the customer’s premises. Most of our customers are in Helsinki, Turku and Tampere, so if you live outside these cities, we hope that you are willing to travel if necessary. Our company is international, so we hope that you speak fluent English in addition to Finnish.
For us it is important that Goforeans receive reasonable total compensation for their work. The compensation is the outcome of, not only experience and skills, but also active work for our two values: being a good workplace for everyone and considering customer perspective in everything we do. The feedback that you receive, your utilisation rate (we are consultants, after all!) and your own professional development are central in the salary discussions with your People Leader (i.e. supervisor).
We have different salary models, and in addition to the monthly salary, we have separate bonuses linked with the company’s success. Bonuses can be related to, for example, recruitment, sales or actions advancing Gofore’s employer brand.
If you have any questions about the role, please contact Petri Ketonen, the Head of the Agile team, either by phone 040 868 5461 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recognise and understand neurodiversity, and are willing to adapt our recruitment process based on your needs.
