Agile PM / Scrum Master Hybrid

Remote - CST or EST
 

Project Overview: An agile team focused on identifying opportunities for modernizing the client’s retail store management system and executing on them. In the first 6 weeks the team will focus on exploring the existing store management solution and defining the roadmap for improvements. Through the remainder of the year the team will execute against the roadmap in an agile fashion.

 

This need is essentially a bit of an Agile Program Manager / Scrum Master role. This person need to be able to holistically look over this entire program but also needs to be the scrum master for the squad that is executing (there is no separate scrum master role as the program is too small for both of those roles). No past industry experience is needed but retail experience is a plus. This could include familiarity with the retail value chain as well as retail type systems (e.g. POS).

Top skill sets required for this role:

- Experience as an Agile Program Manager and/or Scrum Master

- Experience managing a technical delivery team

- Experience executing scrum with a remote/globally distributed team

 

Scrum Masters with us ensure our multi-disciplinary teams successfully deliver and execute quality projects to our clients. They are confident, innovative, flexible, and continuously thinking about how to improve.  

 

As a Scrum Master you will:

  • Lead global, cross-disciplinary teams to deliver integrated client solutions that achieve measurable results for our clients
  • Own the delivery process end to end, overseeing continuous improvement and enacting changes when appropriate
  • Facilitate discussions at stand ups, agile/scrum ceremonies, and conflict resolution meetings
  • Work with product managers and the delivery team to ensure common priorities, manage dependencies and remove impediments
  • Identify, manage, and mitigate project issues and risks
  • Coach the team towards adopting and understanding scrum and work with other Scrum Masters to increase the effectiveness of the application in the organization.

Experience:

  • Experience with managing technical agile teams delivering software solutions is a must
  • Well versed in Agile delivery methodology
  • Hands-on delivery experience working on Jira, Confluence and Azure DevOps (ADO)
  • Experience with managing technical agile teams delivering software solutions is a must
