About WooliesX
At WooliesX, we're on a mission to create better experiences together, for a better tomorrow. We create a truly connected customer experience that is human and warm, driven by our purpose: to make our customers’ everyday lives easier.
Since 2017, WooliesX has formed a critical part of the Woolworths Group. Our organisation is powered by the brightest minds in e-commerce, technology, media and data to transform the way people live and shop.
Our organisation hinges on both B2C and B2B relationships. We collaborate with our partners to activate a dynamic retail ecosystem and create initiatives our customers know and love– like Everyday Rewards, one of Australia’s most popular loyalty programs. 
The success of our entire business is because of our team. We support diversity, through the potential we unlock together. We’re resourceful and open-minded, welcoming and willing to experiment. We encourage fresh ideas and help each other be better by providing ongoing career opportunities to grow and evolve.
It’s how we bring the future to life for our customers and our team, in everyday moments that matter.

About the Role;
As an Enterprise Agile Coach within WooliesX, you will play an important role in ensuring a successful Agile Transformation and play a key part in embedding the adoption of new agile ways of working across the organisation enabling our teams to achieve the best outcomes.
