Employment Type: Full-time
As a Agile Coach at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean, a mighty challenger of the banking world) you’ll join an ambitious team of highly motivated, talented Tideans who love to collaborate, and are driven by helping people achieve their business ambitions. We live and breathe our values, which are to put our members first, work as one team and be data driven, as part of our team, they’ll matter to you too.
As part of this team, you will be working with several delivery teams and support them and their Agile Champions (part time Scrum Masters on the engineering teams) in their continuous improvement.
About the Tech
Technology and our people is what makes Tide possible. We work in autonomous, cross-functional teams where backend, iOS, Android, web, QA, architects, DevOps, agile coaches, data experts and product owners solve difficult problems together to get the job done. We self-organise and discuss technical challenges and set our own guidelines in the different Community of Practices.
Our Agile team is working to increase effectiveness across the whole Product-Tech value stream. Using Agile methodology and practices, we aim to continuously improve the way we leverage technology at Tide. We work in Scrum with our delivery teams, use OKRs for cross team alignment and a wide variety of tools in our Product Discovery and Backlog scoping/ refinement.
On the backend we see Java 8 as legacy and use Java 11+ for our micro-services. We provide RESTful APIs, but also use gRPC. Spring Boot is our work horse, but we are open to new experiments. We run everything on AWS and you’ll see containers (Docker), queues (SNS+SQS) and events everywhere. Our frontends have done an incredible job at consuming our APIs and providing the best UX to our members. They are fully native Android and iOS apps or Angular 2+ web apps. DevOps provides vital infrastructure and operations support and our architects guide us with the long term vision.
With over 100,000 members, we’re the leading provider of SME business accounts in the UK. Why? Because we’re solving a real world problem by being passionate about helping our Members and putting them first.
SME’s have been underserved and overlooked by traditional banks for years. In an entrepreneurial age where everyone is expected to take a shot, traditional banks have not evolved with the needs of the market. That’s where Tide comes in.
With quick on-boarding, low fees and innovative features, we thrive on making data driven decisions to help SMEs save both time and money.
