Vistaprint is going all in on Agile. To accelerate our journey, we will amp up our training and coaching. We need to expand our agile coaching team.

We are building an environment where continuous improvement of processes across the business unit is in focus, and where everyone’s common goal is to deliver outstanding results as fast as possible while having fun, along the way. The Agile Coach at Vistaprint enables leaders and teams to deliver outstanding business outcomes by both being Agile and doing Agile - following best practices. A successful Agile Coach at Vistaprint is one that is passionate about communication, group dynamics and coaching and is not afraid to raise issues and drive change. In this position, you will have a deep understanding of Lean and Agile values, principles and practices, particularly Scrum and Kanban. You love to encourage experimentation to quickly determine whether the teams should pivot or persevere. Additionally, you are an engaging teacher who prefers to lead discussions and organize activities over reading PowerPoint slides.


Primary responsibilities include:

  • Engaging with key leaders to understand where they are on their Agile journey and how to help them accelerate their pace.
  • Teaching Value, Flow, and Quality (VFQ) classes – broad introductory classes, team focused groups of classes (Education Visions) and longer term Agile Pathways.
  • Helping to extend and improve our curriculum.
  • In depth, embedded coaching with teams from all disciplines across the VBU.
  • Working with teams in all Vistaprint locations (remotely and in-person). The initial focus is in Waltham and Barcelona, but all locations will eventually be involved.

Characteristics, experiences and skills:

  • Be a great listener
  • Facilitate many forms and sizes of meetings
  • Trainer
  • Experience working on agile teams
  • You should have an insatiable appetite for learning new things and improving existing ones. You will help us to help our leaders and all of our employees adopt an Agile Mindset.
  • Understanding and experience with Emergn’s Value, Flow, Quality (VFQ) framework would be helpful, but is not required

As Lyssa Adkins wrote in Coaching Agile Teams,

An agile coach is:

  • Someone who appreciates the depths of agile practices and principles and can help teams appreciate them, too
  • Someone who has faced the big dragons, organizational impediments, and has become a coach to managers and other outsiders in the course of addressing them
  • Someone who can help management at all levels of the organization to understand the benefits of working agile
  • Someone who has brought the ideas from professional facilitation, coaching, conflict management, meditation, theater, and more, to help the team become a high-performance team – the way you always imagined a high-performance team could be when you allowed yourself to dream”
