About Us

HIVERY is a fast-growing artificial intelligence startup headquartered in Sydney Australia.  We are backed by the largest data research centre in Australia, CSIRO's Data61, and our co-founders have PhDs with AI and operations research backgrounds. We use advanced machine learning and operations research techniques to provide solutions for the retail sector and work with some of the largest brands and retailers globally. We are headquartered in Sydney with offices in the USA and Japan as well.

The Role At Hand

Our Data and Software team is small, but is growing rapidly and is operating in a very complex macro environment. We are looking for someone who can take ownership of our delivery across Data Science and Software Engineering, while at the same time acting as the main point of communication for our geographically dispersed Commercial and Sales teams. In the morning you might be updating the CEO on our Product Roadmap and in the afternoon coaching one of our Product Managers on how best to cut up tickets to properly feed their development team. The next day you may be talking to our Head of Sales on how we create a short term tactical process to address negative customer feedback.

A Few Key Responsibilities 

  • Definition and ownership of the Product Portfolio Roadmap
  • Mentoring Product Owners on software delivery best practise
  • Internal reporting to SLT on delivery outcomes
  • Acting as Iteration Manager for our Innovation team

We don’t expect you to know everything on your first day and we will guide you as you get up to speed, but you should be comfortable learning and prioritising quickly. Someone who can set their own goals and execute them will thrive in this role.

Most of all, you should have an inquiring mind and good attention to detail.

What You Need to be Successful

  • Background in Software Delivery
  • Exceptional operational and project experience
  • Experience of managing software and data delivery in complex environments
  • Ability to improve existing process, while at the same time designing the next iteration
  • Ability to work in an agile, fast paced environment
  • Ability to engage all levels of stakeholders, from developers to CEO 
  • Mentoring/Coaching
    • Lean
    • Product Ownership
    • Business Analysis 
    • Iteration Management processes 

What We'd Love You to Have

  • Familiarity with or interest in data science and AI
  • Good business acumen. Exposure to the FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) industry a bonus
  • Understanding of software best practices and testing fundamentals, including test-driven development.
  • Willingness to work across multiple timezones and cultures
