Discover smooth shipping with the online freight revolution

Freightos is bringing freight online with the world’s largest global freight marketplace. Almost everything we eat, wear or use is shipped or flown by the global freight industry, but its technology is stuck in the ’90s….and we’re changing that. Beyond helping thousands of top tier companies worldwide, we’ve raised nearly $100 million from investors like GE Ventures, the Singapore Exchange and Aleph, and have gotten the BBC, TechCrunch, and the Wall Street Journal excited in the process..

 

Come help change global trade.

 

We’re looking for an Agile Coach/Scrum Master to join our R&D team in Jerusalem. The perfect candidate will be one who can effectively drive our teams towards continuous improvement to unleash their full potential and contribute to make Freightos a reference in the high tech world with regards to agility, good engineering principles and best practices.

 

Come ready for a challenge and don’t be fooled by container ships; this is rocket-science technology.

You will be helping the teams that are building our flagship product in Jerusalem, and you will also contribute to make our multi-site R&D organization more agile. Our teams are self-managed, multi-functional with end to end responsibility: they design, implement, test, deploy and maintain the software they build, and take ownership of how they work. You will become a crucial piece in the teams, balancing mentoring and coaching as required and leveraging your experience in building products that delight our customers. From removing blockers for the teams, to helping them fail fast with minimum risk, you have the skills needed to bring a trillion dollar industry online.

 

Responsibilities:

Act as the agility advocate for the teams, mentoring and coaching their members on agile principles and practices.
Drive continuous improvement in the teams. Establish the right mechanisms to keep the teams and their members in good health and bringing visibility on how the teams are doing.
Become a servant/leader for the teams. Assist the teams to remove any blockers in their way, but also coach them to become self sufficient.
Assist the teams in their ceremonies. Facilitate meetings as required, send minutes, document working agreements and learning from retrospectives.
Help the teams to keep the backlog, the board and any other physical and virtual team tools in good shape.
Spread agility beyond the boundaries of the teams. Share success stories and learnings with other teams and promote agility in R&D and in the rest of the company.
Help improve intra and inter-team communication, favoring a culture of feedback.
Mentor other members of R&D into the art of agility, and help them to potentially become scrum masters/agile coaches too!
As any other member of the R&D organization, be ready to participate in activities out of your comfort zone when the needs require it.

 

Qualifications:

Proven experience as a Scrum Master or Agile Coach in multiple software development teams.
Significant experience in good engineering principles and best practices.
Excellent communication, self-organization, time management and interpersonal skills.
Must be fluent in English with excellent reading, speaking and writing skills.
Preferred Qualifications:

Experience in coaching distributed and multi-cultural teams.
Experience in product companies.
Developer or Product Owner background.
Active in the local Agile Community.
