Agile Coach / Consultant


Xebia is a Global Digital and IT consultancy that came to the market 20 years ago, far ahead of the curve on the Digital Transformation. Being so long on the market has allowed Xebia build a profound expertise across the board, from software development, IT architecture, DevOps, Cloud and Cybersecurity, to building Data Driven and Agile organizations with the sole purpose of helping organizations make most of the value promised by technology. As the digital ambitions of our clients grow, so is Xebia looking to scale and use its experience to create ever more value, moving the needle on the success of digital and Agile Transformations at the prime companies in the Netherlands and abroad like ING, Unilever, Philips,, Ahold, Schiphol, Elsevier, Heineken, Grandvision, Keylane, NXP, KPN and Shell.  

Today’s accelerated digitization requires faster innovation and more versatility than ever before. Organizations must transform to survive and thrive in this new business paradigm. Xebia helps to make it happen. And we are looking for people to help us. Is that you? 

What we are looking for 

As an Agile Coach/Consultant you steer organizations and in particular agile teams, achieving the highest added value by fully transparent and short-cycle management. You support both business and technical teams and excel in stakeholder management at all organizational levels. As a pioneer, mentor, and servant leader you help others achieve the best agile performance imaginable. Newly-formed teams, dysfunctional or teams stuck at an underperforming level; the bigger the challenge, the bigger the opportunity for them and you to grow. 

More specifically we are looking for medior (3 to 6 years working experience) and senior positions (6-10 years working experience). For the senior positions we expect the ability to design operating models, lead large engagements and leadership coaching.   

Additionally, you possess:

  • Deep understanding of the dynamic interplay between people, processes and politics 
  • Agility and flexibility to adapt accordingly in your role 
  • An inherent passion for the agile philosophy 
  • A university degree or higher professional education (Dutch: HBO or WO) 
  • The ambition to make a valuable and active contribution within the agile community 
  • A tremendous curiosity and urge to share your knowledge with us and the world 
  • And you are fluent in Dutch, both written and spoken.
