In 2016, Hugo, our founder, moved to Bali with his wife and 3 kids. The initial idea was to relax, get better at surfing and stay on the beach. But entrepreneurial blood kept flowing. Hugo saw in Jakarta that Agile had just started becoming popular. While he had adopted the agile way of working and thinking in his software company Bridge for over 6 years, it was new here.
In Bridge, Hugo had experimented with different levels of self organization in team structures. For Ekipa, we decided early 2017 to adopt the principles of Frederic Laloux (Reinventing organizations). You can read them in Ekipa Reinvented. We have no hierarchy in our team; people self-set their salary; there are no fixed roles; anybody can take any role, and everybody contributes to the things that need doing.
Now, here’s where you come in. We are doing some major transformations in large enterprises in Indonesia. Because the agile community is still very young, there currently is a big lack of scrum masters and agile coaches. Therefore we need to get experienced people (from abroad) to help us. And of course, you need something special to say ‘yes’ to this. Now here’s the sell:
You can be part of a new type of organization
> You can be part of a new type of organization, based on Ekipa reinvented and help shape it so others can adopt it too
You can be part of changing the way Indonesia functions and innovates
> Indonesia can benefit from changing the way people work; removing hierarchy, stimulating responsibility, creating a more innovative mindset, inventing ‘Indonesian improvement’. Through Agile, we teach people to get there. You can be part of changing the way Indonesia functions and innovates
You can work in a rewarding environment
> If you come from abroad, you can live on Bali and work in Jakarta (or live + work in Jakarta). All of the work is in Jakarta, so it requires travel, but it’s a very rewarding environment. Work hard and play hard in a tropical paradise. Our plan is to build a community of Agile coaches on Bali and you can help shape it!
You can set your own work hours, roles and salary
> Within our team there’s a lot of fun and freedom; you can set your own work hours, roles (within the constraints of our customers) and salary (although salary shouldn’t be the thing pulling you to Indonesia, where average salaries are obviously lower than in the West)
You can work on anything that contributes to the growth of our team
> As one of our Australian coaches says: I learned more in a couple of months here than any previous job. Since we don’t have fixed roles, you can work on anything that contributes to the growth of our team. This can be sales, marketing, community building, organizing meetups and conferences, recruitment, etc.
