    Zapproved is seeking an experienced Agile Coach/Scrum Master to join our forward-thinking engineering team in response to our continued rapid growth. In this new role at Zapproved, you’ll be working hands-on with our product development teams in an agile environment ensuring smooth and efficiently run teams that are predictable and dependable.

     

    You will be one of two agile coaches providing guidance and direction to our scrum teams by mentoring them in Agile principles and helping them improve upon their practices. You will also work cross-functionally with a wide variety of stakeholders, including engineers, designers, QA, product, and engineering leaders. We are seeking someone who can quickly switch projects even when the end goal is still murky; our team moves (and succeeds or fails) fast!

    • Provide coaching to multiple scrum teams on Agile Principles and Practices
    • Organize and facilitate daily stand-up meetings, reviews, retrospectives, sprint and release planning, and other Scrum-related meetings
    • Drive continuous process improvement to identify and share improvement opportunities, and look externally for best practices in order to increase customer satisfaction, quality, and business value
    • Help the team assess, surface, and communicate schedule risk
    • Track and communicate team metrics and sprint/release progress to teams and management
    • Achieve improved operational excellence in delivery and increased early warning of issues and challenges to allow enough time to resolve or mitigate
    • Ensure the appropriate level of transparency via KPI reporting and other communications

     

    What You’ll Need:

    • 3+ years in a scrum master or agile coach role; significant track record of working with multiple scrum teams to deliver quality software
    • Experience with everything from user stories and tasks through roadmaps
    • Demonstrated and enthusiastic approach to problem solving and collaborating
    • Excellent organizational, analytical, written, and verbal communication skills with the ability to multi-task and follow through on projects to completion
    • Ability to build constructive relationships, present ideas, and communicate change to all stakeholders
    • Practical understanding, experience, and knowledge of DevOps capabilities such as Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD), Automated Testing, etc

     

    What Would Be Nice:

    • Experience working in a rapidly scaling company or start-up environment
    • Experience working in a SaaS company
    • Scrum Master Certification (CSM)
