Flow (Scrum) Master
Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, NetherlandsTech
We are Vandebron
Vandebron is the challenger within the Dutch energy market and is there to ensure radical transparency. At Vandebron you choose from whom you buy energy and where your money goes. We are pioneers, because at Vandebron we develop smart energy applications such as 100% green and smart charging. As an innovative Tech Scale-up, we strive to make the energy market even more sustainable. Our mission is crystal clear: 100% sustainable energy in the Netherlands as quickly as possible.
This is where you’ll end up
As our new Flow Master you’ll work at the Digital department. Digital is the department within Vandebron that is responsible for developing all the digital products that Vandebron offers to our customers and energy producers. The products vary from customer-oriented, such as the consumer website, to innovative grid-oriented products, such as connecting wind turbines, charge points, solar panels and batteries. Each product has his own development team(s), which we organize around value, flow and autonomy. You'll be the Flow Master (next to two other Flow Masters) of one of the domains, with currently 2 development teams each. The domains are Marketplace, E-Mobility and Energy Services. As a Flow Master at Vandebron Digital, first and foremost, you're responsible for helping the domain and its team(s) to reach their full potential.
Why Flow master and not Scrum master?
In order to evolve as a company, agility is key for Vandebron. We believe we can achieve this by being in a state of flow; constant delivery of value and doing the things you enjoy with full focus. This requires the right mindset, behavior, approach and support. Although Scrum is a very useful framework, we believe we need more to achieve flow and therefore agility. That’s why we choose to call it a Flow master as our intention is to optimize flow and not scrum.
