Project description

An Agile Release Train Engineer is a team of teams. The responsibility for driving and steering an ART falls to the Release Train Engineer (RTE). The RTE facilitates Program Level process and execution, escalates impediments, manages risk, and helps drive program level continuous improvement.

RTEs typically have a background as a program or engineering manager. They have a solid understanding of scaling Lean and Agile, and they understand the unique opportunities and challenges associated with facilitating and continuously aligning a large development program.

The RTE is a servant leader who:

  • Assists Scrum Masters with execution and feature/capability tracking
  • Coaches teams to collaborate as opposed to coordinating activities
  • Encourages and supports personal development of individuals
  • Listens and supports teams in problem identification and decision making
  • Coach leaders, teams, and Scrum Masters in Lean-Agile practices and mindsets
  • The RTE understands and effectively applies and coaches Agile and Lean principles within the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). The RTE creates and maintains an environment for continuous learning and relentless improvement.
