We believe that for too long agile has become synonymous with the “doing” of ceremonies like sprint planning, retrospectives and daily huddles. We believe that being agile is a mindset and that true agility unlocks a team’s potential to be happier at work, more impactful with the solutions they’re building, and more focused on their customer’s success.
We believe being agile means:
We believe the way to achieve this is by educating, empowering and giving teams at all stages of agile maturity the tools, support and thought-leadership they need to succeed.
We’re a product and technology-led software company founded by two ex-Atlassian alumni in 2016 and we’ve been building from the bottom up ever since. We’re proud to call over 1,800 companies such as Netflix, Harvard, Amazon, Lego, Mercedes and Twitter our customers.
Easy Agile has 4 products that are built on-top of Atlassian’s flagship product Jira and sold via the Atlassian Marketplace. Every month, over 160,000 agile team members use our apps to help them deliver value to their customers.
Our products help team’s at all stages of their agile journey; from just getting started at sprint planning and persona building, all the way through to enterprise and large scale, team of team planning.
We’re a team of talented and curious graduates, mums, dads, knitting and plant enthusiasts, first-home owners and pet lovers, and we’re proud of our sustainable growth story. Our values are lived and breathed in everything that we do, and have become part of our everyday language.
We’ve made the coastal town of Wollongong, Australia our home and our beautiful new office is nestled between the mountains and the sea. We love our community and show our support through groups like Siligong Valley and our commitment to Pledge 1%.
One of our values at Easy Agile is "Punch above our weight". This means that we use technology to enhance our capabilities and super charge our productivity. The Growth Systems team's primary goal is to provide the excellent tools that multiply the team's ability to punch above their weight. Some of the tools that we currently support are:
As part of the team you’ll be responsible for continuous improvement of our toolset. You’ll get to directly support the entire business and enable them to get the most out of the limited hours in their days. You’ll primarily do this by talking to team mates, observing workflows, identifying bottlenecks, creating solutions and implementing them.
We do not believe that engineers should sit quietly in the corner. We expect you to bring your whole self to work, demonstrate empathy for your internal customers and work closely with them. This approach requires a huge amount of team work and maturity and is not right for everyone, but we believe it’s the best way to create great software.
You care about software and your passion is clearly conveyed by your actions. You have demonstrated experience in delivering business value and delighting customers. You possess a growth mindset which manifests in your drive for learning and sharing.
You bring your not insignificant years of experience to bear in helping graduate, junior and mid-level developers thrive in a wholesome, supporting environment. You lead by example and take pride in solving problems in a clean, well-considered and crafted way.
Technologies you'll encounter daily in this role are:
On a weekly level, you'll probably encounter:
By no means do you need to have mastered all of these to apply. Knowledge of, or a desire to learn, Typescript is a plus.
Hi. I'm Teagan. Product Manager at Easy Agile. I know what it's like to read a job description. You're asking how much of this is real, and what will it really be like if I get the job? I had no idea what working at Easy Agile would be like when I started, but I was only one month in and I was on a plane to San Francisco! You can read all about it in my blog post about my first two years at Easy Agile.
If you are excited about this role but not sure if you meet all of the criteria, please apply. Research shows women and minority groups are less likely to apply for roles where they don't meet 100% of the criteria. We value punching above our weight and people over perfection, so go ahead and apply - we'd love to hear from you.
Please send an application that speaks directly to this position. There are no right answers or cookie-cutter expectations. Show us your role in Easy Agile’s future and Easy Agile’s role in yours. Address some of the work we do. Introduce yourself as a colleague. Give it a deep think and take this at your speed. We’re giving you our full attention.
All documents should be in PDF format. There’s no benefit to writing a novel. Keep it sharp, short, and get across what matters to you.
We know this is a lot of work and there’s a lot on the line. It’s a significant career move to consider. We appreciate the generosity and courage that go into giving us that consideration. Our conversation starts with this post. We look forward to hearing from you.
