Scrum Master

Website AKASHAorg Akasha Foundation

We are looking for a Scrum Master to coordinate and coach our software development team.

Put simply, you’ll be our go-to person for applying scrum to produce high-quality work. Scrum Master duties include managing timelines, resolving problems and coaching team members on Agile methodologies.

Ultimately, you’ll help create self-organizing teams that are flexible and fully productive during sprints.

Location

Although this is a fully remote position, we’re particularly looking for people who live between -1GMT and +4GMT time zones.

About you

You should have excellent knowledge of the scrum framework, with all its artefacts and techniques. You’ll also need to coordinate people and projects (occasionally facilitating changes) with your mindset on deliverables. If you’re a strong communicator, a capable leader and you’re invested in Agile frameworks, we’d like to meet you.

Responsibilities

  • Manage each project’s scope and timeline.
  • Coordinate sprints, retrospective meetings and daily stand-ups.
  • Coach team members in Agile frameworks.
  • Facilitate internal communication and effective collaboration.
  • Work with product owners to handle backlogs and new requests.
  • Resolve conflicts and remove obstacles that occur.
  • Help teams implement changes effectively.
  • Ensure deliverables are up to quality standards at the end of each sprint.
  • Guide development teams to higher scrum maturity.
  • Help build a productive environment where team members ‘own’ the product and enjoy working on it.

Requirements

  • Experience in a scrum master role.
  • Familiarity with software development.
  • Excellent knowledge of Scrum techniques and artefacts (such as the definition of done, user stories, automated testing, and backlog refinement).
  • Excellent communication and servant leadership skills.
  • Problem-solving and conflict-resolution ability.
  • Outstanding organizational skills.
  • Degree in Computer Science.
  • Scrum master certification is a plus.
