Join our team: we're friendly, caring, weirdly tenacious, and fun. The world's biggest brands seek us out because we love finding ways to help them make their customers' lives easier.

About the Role

As a Technical Delivery Manager, you will drive continuous improvement and apply the most appropriate agile and lean tools and techniques to deliver services and solutions of value. The Delivery Manager is a servant leadership role with responsibility across three key areas: agile & lean practices, team health & happiness, and delivery support.  The Scrum Master role as defined in the Scrum Guide is a subset of this broader product delivery role.

 

Skilled at building trust, managing team dynamics and motivating people with the technical chops to “talk the talk”, a good Delivery Manager knows that a happy team will produce the most amazing work.

  • Ability to clearly communicate high level strategy and technical details effectively across organizational disciplines, technical and political boundaries. Can advocate and clearly articulate a squad’s mission creating trust and authenticity.
  • Strong focus on successful business outcomes delivering value. Able to challenge and improve organizational processes impacting pace of the team. Able to identify what works best for the team and when to utilize certain processes. Able to influence and make positive changes to the organization.

What are some things you learned at the company?

So many things… The world of mobile messaging is bigger and more complex than anyone can imagine. It has a language all its own. Our customers are doing amazing things and my colleagues are constant inspirations. I’ve learned what it is like to have strong collaborative leadership who value their people.

Lalo

Senior UX Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of the best parts of OpenMarket is that we are small enough to allow teams to drive change and make a difference. Within the finance team, we typically have a handful of cross functional initiatives going at any given time. Overall we are constantly looking to innovate how we work and what we deliver as an organization.

Anthony

Director of Finance

What’s the vibe like in the office?

OpenMarket is flexible about working remotely but I like coming into the office anyway! It's nice having teammates nearby to help if you get stuck, and there's always a quiet corner if you need to focus. It's a really welcoming environment outside of work too - you can always find people chatting in the kitchen, playing ping pong, or getting lunch.
