Technical ATDD Coach/Technical BDD Agile Coach

Technical ATDD Coach/Technical BDD Agile Coach


Our client is embarking on a pilot implementation of the Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD)/BDD. Their application is a web based application that uses open source technologies, i.e. Apache Tomcat server, Struts, Angular, Java, Javascript etc.  The ATDD Coach will help the team adopt and mature its ATDD processes and practices, with a focus on technical coaching.




  • The technical ATDD Coach will be embedded with the team.
  • The technical coach will aid team in meeting each sprint’s goals, by enhancing their ATDD technical capability and effectiveness over time.
  • The technical coach will be flexible in how they deliver coaching to ensure they facilitate completion of sprint goals rather than inadvertently hindering them.
  • Note: It is understood that to the extent that the team’s velocity is constrained by technical ATDD immaturity, the team should not expect or assume ‘immediate’ improvements; that is, it is understood that it can take time for the coaching to take effect.
  • Help the team adopt and mature its ATDD processes and practices.
  • Team is composed of approximately twenty individuals, including developers, business analysts, and QA analysts and engineers. The team is co-located in San Francisco. The Business Product Owner is based in Seattle but is available as needed and is involved daily virtually. The analysts and developers have been practicing Scrum for several years. The QA team has been practicing a combination of Agile and Waterfall methodologies.
  • ATDD process and technical requirements.
