Business Agility Director - Agile / Lean

London, England, United Kingdom · Product


We are a high-growth FinTech startup using data and machine learning to revolutionise the insurance industry. You will be collaborating with established teams, working to build machine learning products that are fundamentally changing the way insurers see the world, enabling them to move from an assumption based understanding of risk, to an empirical, data-driven view.

What you will be working on:

You will lead the Business Agility Team (reporting to Cytora’s Chief Product Officer). You will also be the line manager of 2 Facilitators (Scrum / Kanban) and will grow the team further.

The Business Agility team mission is to improve business agility through the adoption of agile and lean principles and practices throughout Cytora (not just Product & Engineering).

For instance we see the Definition of Done as encompassing all required functions to deliver the work. Similarly we aim at managing WIP at team level but also at company level.

The key purpose of the role is to get us to our Business Agility vision of “Sustainable, fast and predictable delivery of value through quality products that delight our customers.”
