Job description

Join us as our Release Train Engineer and support our development teams to collaborate smoothly

Your future ecosystem
We have a highly skilled product development department where hardware, embedded, software and cloud technologies form the core of our sustainable horticultural and building automation solutions. The Release Train Engineer facilitates the cross-collaboration between the different teams. Next to the development teams, you will work with Product Owners, Scrum Masters, the Program Manager, People Manager and Test Lead. Outside of the Product Development department, you will also collaborate with Marketing, Sales and the Priva Academy to make sure that all departments that are needed for a complete product launch are aligned.

Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”, where our campus is located in De Lier. In these 100 square kilometers, Priva was founded in the fifties and is still a family business.

Priva started as a hardware company and transformed into an innovative software company that grew to become the global market leader in horticulture and building automation. Today we are a high-tech company that develops hardware, software and digital services in the field of climate control, energy-saving and optimal reuse of water. We do this for horticulture, indoor and city farming, and utility buildings such as offices, retail, hotels and hospitals.

Our next step is to conquer the digital domain and become a digital service provider, selling subscriptions to "climate as a service".

We are proud to be working with over 600 colleagues, in 16 international branch offices divided over 12 countries together with over 400 international installation partners to deliver our sustainable solutions and services in more than 100 countries.

How you add value

As our Release Train Engineer, you will play a key role in ensuring the successful delivery of next-generation building solutions and work closely with cross-functional teams to coordinate and manage the end-to-end release process. The program you will be working on encompasses hardware, embedded software, and cloud development. With your technical background, you are able to understand, challenge and, if needed, push back on technical challenges and in discussions.

You facilitate and set up a PI Planning Event and ensure that all participants, cross-organizational, are well prepared. You lead the efforts to establish an ambitious but realistic committed quarterly roadmap and you are key in communicating this plan to stakeholders and ensuring risks and dependencies are well thought of and managed. You encourage collaboration between teams and Architects. You help create a safe, trusting environment that allows your teams to focus and experience success. You let your colleagues feel the trust and freedom to share and provide input on possible critical bottlenecks in order to improve the flow of value streams by continuously learning and addressing and assessing the best practices.

The PI typically spans 5 sprints. Within this period the role leans more toward Program Management. You work closely with Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Partner Program Manager, and Portfolio Managers to ensure, oversee and drive the success of NEXT, our next-generation, highly technical building solution in terms of planning, resources, budget, quality levels, documentation, and training input and material. Also, you are the first point of contact of our board that has a healthy interest in the progress of this crucial, large, and challenging project.
