We are looking for a passionate and energetic Delivery Manager / Scrum Master to work with world-class designers, architects and developers to contribute to the continued success of this exciting global Fin Tech platform that is available across web and mobile.

You will be joining one of Australias most trusted and well-known brands with a global footprint and more recently accredited for their innovation in the tech space.

You will also work with the wider teams to remove impediments, learn best practice and work to continuously improve processes and working practices.
They recognise that agile delivery methodologies bring huge advantages to the business but believe that every team is slightly different and may prefer to work in slightly different ways.
