You’ll also collaborate and communicate 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!

    • Be Real 
    • Be Our Best

    • Organize and facilitate Scrum ceremonies, including daily standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, retrospectives, release planning, and other agile activities
    • Drive continuous process improvement within your domain, and implement best practices in order to increase customer satisfaction, quality, and business value
    • Help the team assess schedule risk, surface it, and communicate accordingly
    • 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 to allow enough time to resolve or mitigate

     

    What You’ll Need:

    •  3-5+ years experience as a Scrum Master, or similar role, with a demonstrated track record of guiding software engineers through many successful products using Agile methodology
    • Experience working with cross functional team members across multiple product teams 
    • 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)
