The position in a nutshell
We are looking for a Scrum Master to help our product and tech teams cook up great ideas, and solve problems with code, that turn into features that delight our customers. This is a perfect match for you if you are an innovative thinker, with good knowledge of the two most common agile delivery frameworks: Scrum and Kanban, and like to mix things.
You genuinely like collaborating and connecting with people, and you’re focused on helping our teams achieve what they commit to.
You’ll notice immediately when things aren’t running smoothly and want to dive into these situations with teams to understand the bigger picture, and remove blocks that stop us achieving our goals and dreams!
