Agile Coach // Contentful
Contentful is a content management developer platform that enables web and mobile developers to manage, integrate, and deliver digital content to any kind of device or service that can connect to an API – be it smart cars, VR, mobile, web, digital signage, or any new platform. We solve the complexities of content management for tens of thousands web and mobile developers, some independent and many working at enterprise customers that include Jack-in-the-box, Petsmart, Specialized, and Urban Outfitters.
We’re a fun team of over 100 people from 37 nations with offices in Berlin and San Francisco, backed by top VCs (Benchmark, Trinity, Balderton, Point Nine), growing at an amazing pace, and looking for more amazing individuals to join our team!
At Contentful, Product and Engineering departments work closely in small cross-functional teams in order to continuously innovate and deliver. The teams also provide third level support and respond to situations that might need urgent attention in the production environment.
So far, we cherry picked from agile principles and practices that we’ve found helpful and have grown with the ‘Spotify Engineering Culture’ model in mind.
