Agile Delivery Manager

We’re Sonovate

What started as a business to make finance and back-office better for recruitment agencies is now changing how businesses of all shapes and sizes access finance and support to manage their freelance workforce. We’ve created an end-to-end work pay solution to power the new working world. One that let’s businesses unlock the power of the contract, freelance and gig economy with none of the hard work or complications that come with old-school finance.

Backed by ambitious investors and developed by a team in London and Cardiff, we’ve funded in excess of £500m to a host of businesses, from recruitment startups to large-scale organisations who’ve grown tired of the traditional approach to finance from the banking world

What’s it like to work here

Freedom and autonomy to do your best work are what makes Sonovate successful. There’s no micro-management - just teams working together to change how people are paid for the better. Think of us as a group of teams working collaboratively to share experiences and engineer the best solutions.

The growth we’ve achieved in such a short space of time attracts certain individuals. We’re understand we’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but our startup mindset defines who we are.

That said, just because we think like a startup doesn’t mean you’ll be running around doing a million and one things. We’re grown up with very realistic ambitions. Our market-leading products have redefined how people are paid. Building on this core success is where we are right now and we need specialists to join us and help take us to the next step.

We promise freedom to execute, an environment where you can exercise all your skills and talents and guarantee that you will be working alongside truly great talent.

Joining Sonovate will be transformational for your career, whatever stage you are at. Apply today and let’s begin a conversation about you

About you

As an Agile Delivery Manager, you lead a multi-disciplined team of highly skilled engineers to achieve their ambitious goals, keep projects on track, teams healthy and key stakeholders informed.

Drawing on your management and team leadership expertise, you ensure the successful delivery of software into production that meets business requirements and timescales but is flexible enough to respond to risk and change, predominately using the SCRUM Agile framework.

With your experience acting as a Scrum Master, you use servant leadership, quiet confidence and excellent social skills to help coach the development team to be self-organising, cross-functional and high-performing at a sustainable pace.

You are adept at changing your management style from the default role of Scrum Master to that of Line Manager so you can help direct reports to understand, plan for and deliver against SMART objectives, conduct meaningful 1-2-1s and reviews and create personal development plans to help them grow.

Using your excellent communication and interpersonal skills, you create and maintain strong working relationships with other platform, delivery and support teams to maintain a healthy collaboration across all areas of IT development.

You understand technology and are able to earn the respect of the engineering team. This allows you to contribute and ask the right questions about the technology stack to ensure that the team adhere to high quality engineering practices to support our journey to the continuous delivery of well-crafted software.
