Whether it be building forecasting engines that are driving down food wastage or creating mapping tools to support targeted measures in combatting human trafficking, Quantium believes in better goods, services, experiences, and championing the benefits of data for a brighter future.

 

The Role

 

Quantium’s Data Science and AI programs are massive strategic undertakings, involving cross-functional squads comprising data analysts, software engineers, UX designers, business analysts and testers. As a Senior Delivery Manager at Quantium, this could be your opportunity to take your career to the next level by leveraging your deep knowledge of agile principles to successfully deliver product initiatives within a multilayered and complex environment.

 

Our delivery managers ensure they achieve performance efficiency and maximise business value through rigorous and continuous planning, optimizing ways of work for the team, and delivering transparency for effective decision making. We work closely with our squads and Product Owners, and are also supported by and contribute to a wider Agile Delivery Community whose vision is to demonstrate, coach and instil best practice delivery methodologies and grow an industry leading approach to agile delivery for data science solutions.

 

Key Responsibilities

 

You will be responsible for managing the successful delivery of new products and features, doing whatever it takes to ensure the team delivers on the vision for the product.  The magnitude, complexity and visibility of these projects require both the rigor of agile project management methodology, as well as the flexibility that comes with a true strategic and commercial delivery manager. Some key responsibilities include:

 

  • Support teams with product and feature discovery, scoping, planning, estimation and delivery commitment
  • Deploy best practice ways of working to delivery teams, using fit-for-purpose techniques and concepts spanning both Agile and project/program management, such as iterative delivery, continuous improvement and sustainable development
  • Help drive the evolution of delivery best practice within Quantium through the Agile Delivery Community and the wider organisation
  • Navigate and build consensus among multiple stakeholders of varying backgrounds and create radical transparency that supports effective decision making in a highly complex and fast-moving environment

 

About you

 

Firstly, you can be anybody, from any walk of life. Before we get to your skills we want you to know that we actively try to foster an environment where all our employees feel safe, welcomed and celebrated. We look for the same in all people we hire.

 

At Quantium, our team are solving problems that haven’t previously been tackled in these industries. With multiple teams and projects on a massive scale, you’ll be a pragmatist and true strategic thinker who loves to solve complex issues.

 

You will ideally have a solid understanding and experience in agile practices and product delivery to manage work flows to seamlessly deliver a cohesive product. At the same time, your experience working in complex and changing environments has given you the bigger picture thinking and creativity to know when to adjust and pivot your approach as needed.

 

Do you have a bullet point checklist for me to check off my suitability?

 

  • Extensive project management experience with at least 2+ years as a Scrum Master delivering products or large-scale projects (million $ scale)
  • Deep knowledge and experience with agile techniques: iterative delivery, continuous improvement, sustainable development, etc
  • Experience in business analysis, software design or software development, with the ability to relate tasks, behaviours, principles and practices to performing these disciplines in an Agile environment
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with a tenacious, resilient, resourceful and collaborative approach to delivery
