Description

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

You’ll support our delivery teams, be a master at the art of facilitating agile ceremonies, develop and manage best practices around backlog management, offer advice and guidance, and more!  Here’s a high-level look at some of the responsibilities you’ll tackle:    

Lean/Agile Events Facilitation

  • Facilitate contextual adoption of the Scrum Framework, including daily scrum, sprint planning, backlog refinement, sprint reviews & retrospectives, and other related team and intra-team meetings.
  • Facilitate contextual adoption of Lean Thinking, including visualization and continuous optimization of delivery flow using the Kanban Method
  • Facilitate and participate in scaled events, including cross-team planning, dependency management, delivery synchronization, and systems-level inspect & adapt.
  • Sustain and promote usage of information radiators for the teams and the broader organization.

Planning

  • Prepare and facilitate quarterly, release, and sprint planning with the product owner and the team.
  • Guide Feature and Story-level refinement to the Definition of "Ready" in preparation for the next quarter and upcoming sprints.
  • Work with the team and Product Owner/Managers to maintain a healthy backlog and rolling short and mid-term planning for upcoming releases.

Team Support

  • You are a servant leader and you have the "desire to control" the team by teaching and mentoring increasing levels of self-organizing behavior.
  • Engage the organization to remove impediments to the team’s ability to perform by working closely with the team and stakeholders, including product owners/managers, leadership, and other teams.
  • Support communication of delivery progress, gaps, and obstacles with a wide variety of stakeholders; coach product owners/managers to play an active role in stakeholder engagement.
  • Facilitate cross-team orchestration, tracking, and following up with internal and external dependencies.
  • Act as a buffer between external distractions and the focused environment the team needs to be successful. Where beneficial, protect the team and minimize disruptions.
  • You can form and guide teams to high performance by helping the team navigate interpersonal conflicts, challenges, and growth opportunities. Create and sustain an environment of psychological safety and trust among team members and between the team and the larger organization.
  • Work with team to co-create and refine team working agreement, the definition of "ready", and definition of "done."
  • Collect and share transparent team metrics with teams, recommend new metrics for the team's context, and foster continuous improvement conversations using metrics.

Who You Are  

  • You are curious, open-minded, and believe in inclusion and diversity. Here are a few additional tidbits that describe you: 
  • You have at least 5 years of experience as a Scrum Master. 
  • You also have working experience with Scrum, XP, Kanban, and Agile scaling frameworks (preferably SAFe).   
  • You’ve got your bachelor’s degree (preferably in information technology)
  • It’s also a big plus if you’ve already got your Scrum Master certification or an equivalent professional certification. Experience working with the Software development teams and experience with Generative AI technology is preferred.
  • You are a resident of the Atlanta, Georgia area.
  • You are willing and able to receive constructive feedback and advice with a growth mindset.
  • You have excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills, particularly in a virtual video environment over Microsoft Teams
