Client Ventures is looking for an Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) to help drive innovation in our global functions (back office). This will sometimes be done in the context of, and often complementary to, large scale transformation efforts. There will be two key parts to this role:
1) Work as part of a small team to help functional areas design and begin executing transformation efforts. Work could range from planning projects, setting up and managing backlogs, and in doing so, coaching others on early adoption of agile processes
2) Take on specific high-impact, challenging projects in partnership with the functions, working as a key lead on that team. In doing so, help not only drive success, but implement new ways of working.

Key Experience/Qualification:
• 12+ years of work experience
• Experience building new business ventures or products
• Ability to manage backlogs, lead sprints, and manage complex projects
• Comfort with a high degree of ambiguity, changing requirements and even changing roles- this is the type of environment where we are building a plane and flying it at the same time.
• Experience working the back office of large corporates- e.g. finance, risk, compliance, HR, etc
• Experience in large financial institutions.
• Willing to work differently, but won’t get frustrated in legacy environments
• Ability to coach/mentor- with the all the EQ and stakeholder management skills that come with that
• Comfort working as a team, or as a team of 1. Depending on the situation, you have an equal chance of coaching as rolling up your sleeves and doing.

• Experience implementing Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a plus
