Job Description

At Luno, we see you as an individual, and we want to unleash your potential and empower you to become the best possible version of yourself.

Luno welcomes crypto lovers and crypto newbies. You - just like everyone in the world - are on your own unique crypto-learning journey.

About our team:

Our engineering team (currently ~200 engineers) is split into organizations which we call Fleets. Each Fleet focuses on a core customer journey (onboarding, security, payments, support, new business, growth and marketing etc.). Each of these fleets contains multiple smaller teams called Pods, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of the product. 

Pods will include a product owner, product designer, front-end, back-end engineers, Android and iOS developers, who each bring a unique perspective to the problem you are all contributing towards. 

We're agile, use scrum, continuous integration and continuous delivery, deploying to production every single day.

The role in a nutshell:

Indonesia has been identified as one of our primary markets in the region and you will be joining a group of highly motivated software engineers who you’ll work collaboratively with across our pods globally. 

An Agile Project Manager is an expert in the end to end process of delivering valuable software. They are proactive and accountable for ensuring that the delivery approach for each epic is defined, fit for purpose, tracked, communicated, and constantly tuned as understanding of the solution emerges, while also reactively acting as a servant leader that unblocks teams when they hit a problem. They lead on constant improvement to our delivery processes so that we learn and improve our estimation, risk reduction, velocity, technical quality, and teamwork.

Your mission will involve:

  • Being a role model and tenacious driving force with a strong delivery ethic:
    • Exhibiting ownership of delivery and issues.
    • Using simple processes to ensure we’re well prepared for software release ahead of launch day.
    • Appreciation for and alignment with IT Service Management and Support Engineering processes.
    • Competency in risk identification, mitigation and management.
    • Outstanding stakeholder engagement, progress tracking, reporting and communications.
    • Proactively managing dependencies and cross-team coordination.
    • Accountable for the delivery approach and status within your pods.
  • Being an Agile expert, coach, and servant leader:
    • Guiding multiple cross-functional “pod” teams on how to use agile practices and values across product, engineering and operational teams to delight customers.
    • Inspire the team to take responsibility for their delivery process and the outcomes they deliver, focus them on delivering value or failing fast.
    • Facilitate or remove impediments to delivery and waste in our processes.
    • Facilitating team ceremonies, and teaching others on how to improve theirs with a wide range of methods and techniques in your toolbox.
    • Good skills and knowledge of servant leadership, facilitation, situational awareness, conflict resolution, continual improvement, empowerment, and increasing transparency.
    • Coaching on requirements engineering, user story usage, estimation, quality assurance practices, user experience design process, risk management, and more.

The ideal candidate for this role will have:

  • Strong understanding of the end to end components of the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC).
  • Experience in agile principles, practices, and theory across methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming, Lean, DevOps, DSDM, and SaFE.
  • Solid knowledge of a ticketing tool such as JIRA a must (We use Gitab which is similar).
  • Be friendly, transparent, articulate and driven to succeed.
  • Basic knowledge of and passion for digital currencies like Bitcoin.
  • Based in Indonesia, preferably in Jakarta
