• Acive participation in the continuous improvement of the organization and in cross departmental and cross organisational initiatives and working groups and ensuring good communication and information flows within the organisation and to external partners.

 

Applicants for Scrum Master must be passionate about agile, determined, positive and enthusiastic in their approach. You should have the ‘coaching gene’ and thrive on maintaining an environment where development teams flourish through effective, co-operative working as a result of your ability to co-ordinate activities, train, coach, encourage and motivate.

 

Naturally you will need to demonstrate a track record of being solution orientated and highly structured in your approach.

 

You should be familiar with Miro, Jira and Confluence or at least have the enthusiasm to want to quickly gain knowledge and competence in them.

 

Degree or equivalent in Engineering/Industrial Engineering/Business Administration or related is desirable and you must have experience as a Scrum Master where you have acquired agile team leadership experience.

 

You will be joining a professional, proactive and employee centric organisation which offers scope for personal development and lifelong learning and training opportunities.
