As the Agile Coach at SEEK I work with many passionate people and teams. We all share the purpose of helping people live more fulfilling and productive working lives and to help organisations succeed.
We follow Lean principles as well as Scrum and Kanban. In the past, assuming the roles of Delivery Lead, Team Lead, Agile Business Analyst, Product Owner, Scrum Master and Software Engineer, I have worked in multichannel retail as well as a professional social network and real estate advertising.
My focus is always on the customer as well as the team building the functionality for the customer. My positive attitude creates an atmosphere of possibility and growth for my team mates and other co-workers. I love a professional challenge in an Agile environment where I can continue to contribute my professional experience and strong social and organizational skills whilst having the opportunity to constantly learn in working with great and diverse teams.
