Want to lead a world-class cross-functional team in an innovative tech company?

We look forward to meeting you, our new Agile Team Lead. This is your first day in a rapidly expanding and ambitious Norwegian tech scale-up. With us, you’ll experience a fast pace surrounded by skilled, driven colleagues who all look forward to having you on board.

reMarkable’s mission to help people think better in a distracted world. Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, and our new subscription service, Connect, in 2021, we've set exciting growth and product development goals for the coming year. To help us get there, we need new colleagues ready to make a real difference through their work – which is where you come in.

About the role

As our new Agile Team Lead, you’ll be responsible for leading one or more interdisciplinary agile teams within our software tribe, supporting its members and guiding their direction. You'll get an outlet for your experience and competence working with agile development methodology, where your skilled abilities in clear communication and prioritization can shine.

Your team will consist of subject experts in development, design, and testing, so it’s important that you have a good insight into their different approaches to the task at hand so that together we can get the most from each other’s diverse backgrounds and skillsets. The team needs a friendly, clear, and direct leader who understands their individual needs and strives each day to make their worklife as productive, motivating, and enjoyable as possible.

In addition to your focus on the team you’ll take responsibility for, you’re comfortable with being able to clarify for leadership the experiences and insights from your team which can help contribute to a better everyday life for everyone else working at reMarkable. This ability will be linked with your understanding of our company’s long-term goals, where you work closely with other Team Leads and Product Management so that the tasks we are staffed on are prioritized in the right order, given to the right people, and delivered on time and to spec. You’re a person who cares for their colleagues, focus on constructive solutions to complex problems (often on multiple fronts) and will be a sociable and motivating person to work with.

As Agile Team Lead, you’ll be part of reMarkable’s technology team in Oslo, and report directly to our Principal Agile Coach & Unit Lead.
