Your job as a scrum master

Work for the smartest banking in Switzerland

At PostFinance, we work on ways of managing Switzerland’s money both now and in the future. We create practical solutions for our customers and help shape the technology trends on the market. We achieve this thanks to our unique culture, which enables us to work with a pioneering spirit every day.

Your role as a scrum master

As a scrum master with PostFinance (known internally as a delivery team lead), you will be responsible for the continued focus and optimization of the delivery team. You will support your team in applying an agile way of working and embracing a growth mindset. You will pursue solutions to issues in a proactive manner, and you will empower your team to resolve these issues themselves. You will push for and encourage the systematic, ongoing development and self-organization of the team.

The core of our agile way of working and our cooperation is the “enterprise agile delivery” framework (EAD for short). When it comes to designing and developing the EAD framework further, PostFinance is guided by well-known, firmly established frameworks and practices. In doing so, we incorporate aspects that are a fit for our company and culture, and deliberately avoid those that are not. Learn about our agile way of working in the video below.

Delivery teams are interdisciplinary teams that have the capabilities to implement the product to the quality required. As delivery team lead, you will form part of the technical management trio for the delivery team, together with the product owner (PO) and architecture owner (AO).

A PostFinance delivery team consists of these roles: PO, DTL, team members and business representatives.

First-hand accounts – our employees talk about their job

  • Added value created by high-performance, flexible teams

    “As a servant leader, I support the team so that we can produce high-quality, value-creating software together. Working closely with the product owner, we create the framework conditions for a high-performance, flexible team that enjoys its work. I also thoroughly enjoy my role as DTL and I especially appreciate the different “flight levels”. It may well be the case that something starts out as an operational issue, but turns into a strategic issue that requires a conceptual, organizational solution. I also like the fact that it’s still a people business at its core and that its aim is for us to create added value for our PostFinance customers as a team.“ 

  • Actively helping to shape the future of PostFinance

    “As DTL with PostFinance, I coach my team in agile ways of working. Working together with the product owner, I plan and moderate the agile ceremonies and try to shield the team as best as I can from distracting outside influences. My team’s happiness is my absolute bread and butter. I regularly have meetings with my team members, I support them with their concerns and help them with both their personal and professional development. I am involved in the recruitment process from the outset and I plan out the induction of newcomers into our team. I participate in CoPs across all the teams to get everyone sharing their experiences, and in working groups, I’m able to actively help shape the future of PostFinance as well.“
